From large format concrete-look porcelain panels to a statement-making solid bronze basin and new toilet perfect for compact spaces, this month has seen plenty of fabulous new bathroom products hit the market. These are our top picks.
Agape Memory collection: Available locally at Artedomus, this collection draws on traditional shapes but reimagines them in a contemporary way and in a range of finishes including chrome, polished brass, black, white and natural brass.
The range includes a variety of wall, countertop and floor mounted tap ware as well as accessories including a soap holder, toothbrush holder, toilet roll holder, toilet brush, cistern buttons, heated towel rack, floor towel rack and clothes hanger. Prices start from $545.
Apaiser Zen oval bath: Sporting a lovely oval shape, it’s the subtle geometric sides that make this luxurious bath a standout in our view – it strikes the perfect balance between hard and soft and is available as a basin too. From $8,841.
Artedomus Beton collection: Designed as a practical, high-performance alternative to traditional concrete, the Beton collection looks like concrete but is made from porcelain. Produced randomly, with a rolled and printed texture so that there is no visible pattern or repetition, the range is available in ten shades ranging from white to graphite, beige, brown and grey. The range comes in tile format as well as in large format porcelain panels ideal for bench tops, floorings, walls and splash backs.
Kohler Artist Editions collection: Some of the more unique basins we’ve seen, the Kohler Artist Editions collection is comprised of five designs but two of the most popular are made from spun glass. Available in four colours, Briolette is a faceted glass vessel basin inspired by the precisely cut surfaces of precious stone while the Kallos spun glass under counter basin bears distinctive architectural patterning reminiscent of fine crystal.
VOLA gold-finished tap ware and accessories: Bespoke Danish fixtures and fittings brand VOLA has released a gorgeous range of gold-finished wares including taps, mixers and bathroom accessories. Prices start from $1406.
Merwe Cove basin: A large oval basin cast in solid bronze, this piece makes quite the countertop statement. It’s got great hygiene credentials too given that copper alloys (of which bronze is one) have antimicrobial surface properties that kill harmful bacteria. $2999.
Kohler Reach II back to wall toilet: Ideal for small spaces, Kohler’s new Reach II back-to-wall toilet suite has a compact design that shaves up to 70mm off the protrusion from the wall, compared to conventional models. The clean-lined model has also been designed with higher levels of water efficiency and easy-clean features. $754.95.
DADO Bologna basin: This bathroom basin has a natural silky feel with a clean, smooth surface finish that’s easy to clean. The crisp circular rim measures 25mm in thickness and the basin can be top mounted or underslung. $659.
