1-BATHING WITH THE BOUROULLECS

Flowing chrome faucets and smooth, white mineral cast shelves – with soft, deliberate lines – characterize the Axor collection created by the fabulous Bouroullec brothers, Ronan & Erwan. Truly customizable, Axor Bouroullec comprises 40 products, including faucets, washbasins, a bathtub, shower components, and accessories.  hansgrohe.ca

2-CURVES AHEAD

Victoria + Albert’s newest premium tub is Cabrits, inspired by the peninsula of the same name on the Caribbean island of Dominica. With an elegantly sinuous shape, Cabrits is constructed of Englishcast, a naturally white material rich in volcanic limestone, warm to the touch, highly durable and easy to clean.  vandabaths.com

3-IDRO OF ITALY

BLU Scavolini has introduced seven collections under the art direction of the Castiglia Associates Studio. One of these is Idro, whose hallmark is a door with a groove cut out of the upper thickness of the door itself. Available in both glossy and matt lacquered finishes, it comprises 25 washbasins, sanitary fittings, taps, shower units and trays, tubs, mirror units, and
accessories.  bluscavolini.com

4-A TALE OF TWO MATERIALS

Kube is the initial offering of the Kubico brand, created by Delineodesign. A visually striking freestanding washbasin, it combines the rough and the smooth: Apocem, a new material of fibre cement, and Corian. The front panel features an innovative slot for hanging up towels, which hides a drawer.  delineodesign.it

5-PALATIAL

Andreas Dimitiadis of Platinumdesign created the Palace collection for Laufen. A versatile bathroom suite, it features washbasins that can be cut to size to fit snugly into any bathroom layout. Palace also includes contemporary furniture and an integrated towel rack.  laufen.com

6-CHOICES, CHOICES

Hansgrohe’s new Metric collection of bathroom faucets features multiple spout heights; whether you’re brushing your teeth, filling up a fishbowl of even washing your hair, there’s a faucet that makes it easy.  hansgrohe.ca

7-HIGH & DRY

Duravit’s latest introduction is the Architec Dry Urinal. Entirely water free, it uses a specially developed organic-gel cartridge that keeps odours at bay, as well as dry-flush technology to save thousands of gallons of water in its lifetime.  duravit.com 

8-(IM)PERFECTION 

Also from Duravit, the Starck 2 range of washbasins has been redesigned by its creator, Philippe Starck. Large, deep and just slightly oval, they seem entirely organic.  duravit.com 

9-WHO’S THE FAIREST?

Native Trails has introduced a pair of mirrors handcrafted from FSC-certified bamboo. Shown here is Solace, with a graceful minimalist shape and optional detachable shelf. (The second mirror, Harmony, is rectangular.)  nativetrails.net

10-WHAT’S BLACK & WHITE…

The latest introduction from Montreal-based Wetstyle is the Head/Back Rest, made of PVC and available in black and in white. Placed directly on the bottom of the bathtub, it leans on the back slope of the bathtub; four little suction cups prevent it from floating.  wetstyle.ca

11-FROM THE SOUTH POLE

Vancouver-based Sustainable Solutions manufactures and distributes products – made from heavy brass construction for durability – that aim to reduce water flow. Its latest collection of faucets is Fluid, which includes the whimsical Penguin.  sustainablesolutions.com
