For the western world, having ready access to running water is one of the hallmarks of our civilization. Yet what was once intended to merely fulfil the requirements of hygiene, has now moved on considerably and a long way lies between the first water channels of the Ancient Romans and the modern shower cubicle. It was not until the beginning of the 20th century, however, that water began to be piped directly into the home, making it something which is readily available to everyone everywhere. Since that time the bathroom has become an important part of daily life, and the style and designs continue to change. The TARA fitting was created by the manufacturer Dornbracht in cooperation with Sieger Design, and it has long become a classic in modern fittings. With its elegant lines and clarity of form, TARA succeeds in combining the present with memories of the past. It has been honoured many times worldwide - and copied almost as frequently. In this beautifully produced book the New York photographer Jesse Frohman captures the TARA with its characteristic forms in striking black and white illustrations, portraying it as design classic of our times. Prominent architects, designers, communication scientists, and critics discuss the TARA and its significance in the fields of design theory and art.
