Zan Design

Fusing ancient craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic, Zan Design's container offers a seamless bridge between classic and contemporary. Crafted from a mixture of decorative, lead-free enamel, also known as 'Jingtai blue', and grade JIS C1100 copper, the vessel is finished in a high temperature kiln. The result is a linear surface design that blends potent hues of azure with a thick copper base, a multiplicity of textures that is further enhanced by the container's fabric lid.

'Mirror Box'

Laura Bilde / Woud

Laura Bilde channels her simple Scandinavian style to master the multifaceted qualities of this mirror. The circular model has a geometric friend with it; a clean painted black metal shelf that can accessorise in the bathroom, or bedroom. Created for Danish brand Woud, the 'Mirror Box' plays with a pleasing mix of angles and a stylish dark finish.


Carina Deuschl / Kaldewei

Bringing a slick finish to our bathroom is Italian brand Cielo's extra slim ceramic shower tray. The super refined piece seemlessly fits into the shower room set with its 3cm thickness and range of 20 hues and alterative textures. From an organic moss green to a creamy sandstone, or even just monochrome black and white, each piece is handmade with finesse.

'Ametis Ring'


Graff's refined 'Ametis Ring' shower head is wall-mounted and finished in powder-coated, high quality steel. Available in sleek architectural black (pictured), white, or polished chrome, the sculptural circle features six full-colour spectrum LEDs, creating a spa-like chromotherapy glow whilst you shower. Discreetly placed faucets release a halo of water, you can choose to either transport yourself to a relaxing waterfall or wake up with a revitalising rain-jet setting.

'Xtend' Bathtub

Carina Deuschl / Kaldewei

Bathroom innovation doesn’t come much better than a pop-up tub. This model has been realised as part of German brand Kaldewei’s young talents design competition during Salone del Mobile. Winner Carina Deusch’s travel friendly piece uses carbon fibre to enable it to be collapsible, arriving as a portable flat package before expanding into a classic tub-shape in its wire structure. Inside, there is soft padded material for a comfortable bathing experience, be it indoors at the office, or camping outside.

'Epoque' bathtub

Carlo Colombo / Antonio Lupi
Price on request

Steering away from the squeaky-clean ceramic look typical of luxury bathtubs, Italian stalwart Antonio Lupi has decided to go back to basics, creating its latest bath in raw Amazzone stone. Designed by Carlo Colombo as part of Collection Bespoke, 'Epoque' still resonates the brand's modern design aesthetic with its graduating oval form, however the muted skin coloured palette allows it to be more exposed as a sculpture, but with the same level of sophistication.

'Happy D.2'

Sieger Design / Duravit
From £418

Duravit has introduced a new furniture range for its basin units, conceived by Sieger Design. Answering the demand for ever more vanity space, the German manufacturer has produced a variety of wall-mounted and floor standing cabinets that maximise storage yet maintain a discreet look. The seamless edges and subtle new die-cast zinct feet neatly complement the brand's basins. We're smitten with the soft curves and textured linen finish of this 'Happy D.2' Unit.

Studiopepe / Menu

Designed by Milanese agency Studiopepe, this stylish marble mirror takes its cues from the aesthetic of late 1950s Italy, which favoured clean lines and precious materials. Influenced by the works of masters such as Gio Ponti and Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Studiopepe has created an object for everyday use that will age beautifully and last forever. It is available here in white or black marble, and made for Danish design brand Menu.

Green tea scented, the soap is ergonomically shaped to fit the hand with ease, while layers of colour ensure this often overlooked item will never go unnoticed.

'90°' wall light


Doubling as an elegant storage solution, Frama's '90°' wall light is a strong design statement with an equally distinct geometric character.
