The Goods: Bath

Bathrooms are typically be the smallest rooms in the home, so it’s no wonder that most look for unique ways to amplify every detail in its aesthetic and functional qualities.

Undici Inox a Colonna | Agape

A new freestanding version by Benedini Associati expands the washbasin series, with a clean, rounded shape in stainless steel or brushed brass on a skinny painted metal column. “The idea draws its inspiration from the diffused bathroom trend. Increasingly, storage furniture is moving into adjacent spaces, such as the bedroom. The washstand can then focus on its specific function, becoming lighter and simpler,” says Giampaolo Benedini.

Verso | Moen

Good design is not just aesthetically pleasing, but also removes life’s hassles. Thanks to their Magnetix magnetic-docking technology, this showerhead can be easily removed, wiped clean, then snapped back into place. No tools required, and “No more wasted time scrubbing hard water stains. Just soak in a 50/50 water/vinegar solution and wipe dry,” says Danielle Radic, senior product manager, showering, Moen. The rainshower also features the Infiniti Dial to seamlessly switch between spray modes.

Largo | Acquabella

Aptly named using the Spanish translation for long, this new shower tray breaks with tradition by placing the drain on the tray’s longest side. This strategic shift creates more options for installation configurations and adds a gentle slope as a subtle design element. Manufactured using a proprietary Akron compound of polyurethane and mineral fillers, the resulting non-slip surface is durable, resistant to impact and thermal shock and features antibacterial properties for easy cleaning.

PLUS Series Grab Bar | HealthCraft Products

Humble-looking but a potential lifesaver for older adults or those with mobility issues, this ADA-compliant family of grab bars by an Ottawa-based manufacturer is capable of supporting weights of up to 500 lbs., enough to grab the judges attention at the prestigious 2023 Red Dot Awards for Product Design.
