When warm, tactile wood is introduced to the bathroom space it creates a striking contrast with smooth, white ceramics as demonstrated by these recent bathroom fittings.
The DuraStyle collection by world renowned designer Matteo Thun for bathroom brand Duravit includes washbasins, mirrors, bidets, furniture, bathtubs, and innovative rimless toilets. Thun’s clever use of of real walnut and oak with white ceramic creates a pleasing contrast and a warm ambience.
Italian brand Cielo‘s new HOME collection of ceramic and wood bathroom fittings by Studio APG includes the Cibele bathtub which is clad in warm rustic wood.
Introduced in April last year, Boffi‘s Flyer bathroom shelves are equipped with special brackets that make them look as if they are gracefully floating. As well as the solid wood finish seen here, Corian®, Cristalplant® or stone finishes are also available. The Suspended tops can be complemented with suspended push-opening drawer units in veneer wood or matt Silcover.
The Ukiyo-e by Olympia Ceramica is a modular bathroom that can be customized to suit a variety of spaces. The centerpiece of the bathroom is a deep, circular ceramic basin with an accompanying tray, which rests on top of a wooden freestanding vanity unit or wall mounted shelf. A matching wooden wall mounted mirror features a series of hooks for hanging the Ukiyo-e accessories including a hand mirror, a toothbrush holder, and a soap tray.
Designed by Claudio La Viola, the exacting lines of the Base collection for Italian brand Falper are softened by the use of Cristalplant with warm oak-veneer. The line includes small elements such as accessory holders, washbasins and high quality tops.
