Vieques takes its name form a small and immaculate island in the Caribbean Sea. The first element, the bathtub, fascinates by the contrast between inspiration – homage to the old tubs of past times in ready made style – and the sophisticated realization.

The family now also include several versions of washbasin: freestanding or over countertop, this last with two different heights, always with the characteristic sign of the Vieques collection.
