Ex.t Plateau bath
Have you ever used a free-standing bath but not had anywhere to put your products close to hand? Well Ex.t have the answer with their ‘Plateau’ bath – it’s a beautiful and luxurious freestanding bath featuring a sleek shelf sculpted into an entire side of the tub. Jean Marie Massaud has addressed the issue before with his nature-inspired ‘Massaud’ range for Axor, with its shelf atop the filler spout. I think the ‘Plateau’ is the solution for the bather with a serious product collection though!
Glass Design Italy basins
Glass Design Italy have a large number of beautiful and elegant basins on display in the exhibition, and these two in particular caught my eye. On the left a basin a deep smoked glass, and on the right an illuminated basin, emitting a soft glow of diffused light around it.
They also displayed a gorgeous white glass basin with a faceted exterior which catches the light in a beautiful way:
CP Hart Marmo
A big surprise was CP Hart’s own new range of luxury taps and controls. Featuring a variety of different stones in the bases, and a range of tap and control types, this will be available in the summer.
This design was launched at the end of last year, but it’s fantastic to finally see it on display in London. Taking existing Bette sanitaryware, including the Lux bath (which we’ve just installed in a project in London’s South Kensington) and matching basin, it sits them on simple metal frames. The ultimate industrial-minimal look, but paired with wonderfully soft and sleek sanitaryware. It provides a unique sense of space around and within the pieces, but the paradox is that to really appreciate the simple forms I think that they’ll need plenty of space around them.
Also on show is one of their Monolith free-standing basins.
I hope this selection and the previous one give you inspiration for your bathroom design project and a feel for the latest products available. The exhibition continues at CP Hart’s London Waterloo showroom until the end of this week.
