Three Wetstyle Products Recognized by Good Design Awards
WETSTYLE has been recognized with GOOD DESIGN awards for its Mood bathtub, Stellé Vanity collection, and Feel shower base collections.
“We are proud to be recognized by such a prestigious body for the innovation and quality of our product lines,” says Mark Wolinsky, President of WETSTYLE. “It’s a validation of the passion and tireless effort of our entire team, from conceptual design, to the handcraftsmanship behind every finished WETSTYLE product.”
The GOOD DESIGN awards, organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, and Metropolitan Arts Press, Ltd., recognizes the advanced innovation and design of consumer products.
The winning collections feature refined design elements from Pierre Bélanger and the WETSTYLE Design Lab, embodying the essence of freshness and purity.
“WETSTYLE is focused on contemporary product design that favours simplicity of forms and relevance to trending fashions,” said Pierre Bélanger, a senior member of the WETSTYLE Design Lab. Designer for WETSTYLE. “The result is the creation of timeless collections that adhere to our motto of durability, finesse, and quality.”
Winner of the Industrial Design – Bathroom Product Award at the 2020 Grands Prix du Design, MOOD’s offsetting ellipses provide an infusion of aesthetic, functional, and structural elements to foster an ambiance of comfort and relaxation. The soaking tub’s fluid, elliptical design adds functional deck space to the inviting tub, with a side rim storage shelf that blends into the tub’s refined appearance
WETSTYLE’s STELLÉ collection introduces classical beauty to the modern home, with floor-mount vanities designed to embrace the LAB collection’s drop-in sinks. Inspired by historic monoliths, STELLÉ’s minimalist design converts that inspiration into compact, urban elegance that fits easily into any size of powder room or bathroom.
“The STELLÉ collection was designed for simplicity and finesse in conjunction with our LAB collection washbasins,” says Bélanger. “Whether selected for a powder room, or as a grander statement for larger bathrooms, STELLÉ exudes the richness of its woods in the form of a timeless monolith.”
Handcrafted from responsibly-sourced hardwoods including oak, walnut, Mozambique, torrified eucalyptus, and matte lacquer, STELLÉ’s offerings feature-rich grain patterns, unparalleled by reconstituted woods or laminates
STELLÉ vanities are available in a variety of sizes and colours, and with or without doors. With-door models feature shelves and fully-finished interiors, as well as premium hardware including soft-closing Blum hinges and solid stainless-steel handles with a matte black powder-coated finish.
The FEEL collection replicates the textures and tactile sensation of concrete. Complementing this collection’s look and feel, a single slab composition reduces installation time and costs associated with traditional acrylic or tile-based shower floors. FEEL shower bases are compliant to both North American plumbing codes and the American Disability Act (ADA). Ample surrounding flat edges allow for the installation of standard and rolling/sliding shower enclosures. FEEL’s one-piece construction also reduces the risk of water leaks associated with multi-layered tiled-in solutions. With no seams, joints, or grout, FEEL’s barrier-free construction eliminates the need for waterproof membranes, hot mopping, and slope construction.
The FEEL shower bases are available in neutral shades of white, grey, and black, with supplied drain covers matched in texture and colour that seamlessly blend for a unified look. For medium and large-scale projects, FEEL’s dimensions, colours, drain grids, textures, and even logos can be fully customized.
Complementing its alluring aesthetics and functional pragmatism, the ADA-compliant FEEL collection embraces safety and wellbeing and features anti-slip textures and ISO-NPG-H certified antibacterial/anticorrosion treatment
“Since introducing our CUBE collection in 2002, WETSTYLE products have been at the forefront of North American bathroom trends,” says Wolinksy. “FEEL is a continuation of that positioning and introduces a collection reflective of European design, yet adapted to North American standards and tastes.”
