Bathrooms: Make a Splash
Work up a sweat then clean yourself off. These bathrooms fixtures can help you do it all.
Gym Space | Scavolini
At-home workouts can now be squeezed into your morning routine with Gym Space, a wall-mounted frame that promotes physical exercise in the bathroom. Designed by Mattia Pareschi, the system consists of a gymnastics bar upon which sports equipment (including Scavolini benches) and bathroom furnishings (such as mirrors, lights and accessories) can be easily installed. Gym Space is entirely customizable in a variety of configurations, colours and finishes. www.scavolini.com
Taizu | Victoria + Albert
This tub, crafted in collaboration with Hong Kong-based architect Steve Leung, finds its roots in Imperial China. Inspired by the porcelain designs of the Song Dynasty and named after its founding Emperor Taizu, the 59-in. diameter tub is cast in one piece from Volcanic Limestone and resin. Simplistic and clean, Taizu is Victoria + Albert’s first round bathtub, and is available in six standard paint colours, in high gloss or matte finishes.
AK/25 | Aboutwater by Boffi and Fantini
The matte-gunmetal AK/25 faucet is admired for its composition and symbolism. Designed by the late Paik Sun Kim of South Korea, the origami-inspired faucet swivels back and forth on a concealed hinge, allowing it to be carefully tucked away when not in use. Also available in a showerhead and tub filler, the collection pays homage to Kim’s interest in oriental philosophy, nature and modern aesthetics. www.aboutwater.it
Acquafit | Fantini
Fantini’s first double rain-jet showerhead contains 170 anti-limescale nozzles for a high-performance and easy-to-clean line. The square or rectangle showerheads can be wall- or ceiling-mounted, and when recessed, pair nicely with RGB LED lights in four colour options. The stainless steel Acquafit is available in eight finishes, including brushed, matte black or white, and nickel, gold or copper PVD.
VIBE | BainUltra
BainUltra has added three new designs to its therapeutic VIBE line: the OVAL, with a classic silhouette and sloped backrest; the DESIGN, with a wide body and traditional soaker feel; and the Back To Wall, with a freestanding look when installed snuggly against a wall. Envisioned for urban bathrooms with a tight footprint, each model contains optional massage jets and lighting accents, as well as a unique hot air system for consistent and sustaining water temperatures.
Stryke | Delta Faucet
With subtly upturned spouts and handles, Delta’s new faucets, tub fillers and showerheads offer a steady water flow and are easy to install and clean. The Stryke Bath Collection is ADA compliant, resistant to abrasions and discolouration, and available in chrome, stainless, matte black, and champagne or venetian bronze.
