The Goods: Bathroom Systems

The consumer desire for effortless style means designers must be on their toes and effectively blend brands and collections to create bath spaces that suit different needs and styles.

Lucia | Fleurco

Seen at IDS24, this new black bathtub from the Aria Stone collection features high quality solid surface material and a spacious interior. For those not into the goth look, the tub comes in other colours and finishes for a customized look, also contains a sleek and modern-style slotted overflow and pre-installed full metal drain body with a colour matching cover.

Mond | Vogt

This shower system collection, whose name is derived from the German word for “moon,” draws inspiration from “the vastness of a starry night sky.” The collection has a total of 16 colour variations, allowing for roughly 1,728 potential creations. The full bathroom collection also includes faucets, tub fillers, and matching accessories, with handles designed to have a push to pop-out insert, with the use of an Allen key.

O-XY | Fantini

Designed by Marco Williams Fagioli, this fixture collection is inspired by the geometric linearity of Cartesian coordinates, expressed through slim, narrow shapes. The handle of the faucet is a texturized rectangle resting on the faucet body. Available in brass and other PVD finishes, the interwoven pattern also adds a unique textural element to the design.

ONE Collection x P.E. Guerin | Kallista

Shown at IDS24, this is a collaboration between a faucet company and a 165-year-old New York City based custom hardware maker. Solid brass handles made in a NYC foundry feature a faceted texture using heritage hammering and chasing techniques, The collection includes widespread faucets, shower trims, and a freestanding bath filler in two dual-finish hues: Brushed French Gold with Nickel Silver and Polished Nickel with Unlacquered Brass.

Perrin & Rowe Armstrong Collection | House of Rohl

The collection, comprised of faucets, tub fillers, and shower accessories, balances past and present with precision and proportion, taking aspects from the era of invention and industry and translating them into modern form. Handles echo the silhouette of spools once used in creating textiles, and the sleek curve of the spout completes a look of understated elegance that always stands out.

Flo Smart Water Monitor | Moen

It ain’t sexy, but this technology could save a space from disaster. Attached to a home’s main water supply line and operating 24/7 in the background, Flo uses AI to learn water usage patterns and can sense leaks as small as one drop per minute along with other potential issues. If abnormalities are detected it can intervene proactively, from purging waterlines to prevent freezing to automatically shutting off the water supply, all while alerting homeowners via their smart phones.
