Designed by Roberto Lazzeroni, this sculptural wood washstand is part of Antonio Lupi’s Il Bagno Collection of bathroom fittings and furnishings that evoke early twentieth-century designs.


The Agora collection by Milan-based architects and designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba for Italian bathroom brand Kos is an adaption of a bathroom collection from Zuchetti.Kos’s archive that was originally designed in the 1930s. Elegant and sculptural the tub and basins are made from Cristalplant®, an innovative and versatile composite material that’s characterized by a velvety touch and matt finish, while the faucets combine tradition with modernity; the perfect equilibrium between past and present.


Comprising a smooth oval-shaped basin perched on a polished chrome stand, Agape’s Ottocento collection is available in both wall-mounted or metal-framed versions. In keeping with a clean, modern aesthetic, the matching taps offer an up-to-date look of the classic cross design.
