Offering an innovative project in terms of technology and use, is the ambition of Sanijura, which used Thomas Merlin's studio to design its new Zephir product: a heated door for an ultra-optimized space saving concept. Together, they redesign the layout of the bathroom as a separate space and deliver an ultra-functional furniture without forgetting comfort and aesthetics.
For more than a century, Sanijura has made bathroom furniture that combines functionality and beautiful design. Its environmentally-friendly creations are manufactured in France’s mountainous Jura region.
As a company, Sanijura is profoundly attached to its roots and the authenticity, strength and solidity that form its identity. Sanijura’s staff form the heart of its products. The company’s flair for hand-crafted production has been passed down through the generations, guaranteeing an unwavering level of quality in both its wood- and lacquer-work.
After four years in various Paris studios, Thomas Merlin founded his own studio in 2011.
Simplicity and precision are values that guide his projects, as does his desire to create items with a singular style. He strikes the right balance between functionality, usability and aesthetics by using natural materials, which he endows with modern, minimalist style. He is inspired by craftspeople who succeed in bringing their materials to life, and he creates projects with businesses and artisans whose skills bring a whole new dimension to the work.
He collaborates with renowned retailers and brands such as EnoStudio, Hartô, Bolia, Drugeot Labo, Universo Positivo andJars Céramiste.
