From unusual statement bath tubs to elegant Art Deco inspired tapware, March has seen a couple of exciting new ranges hit the bathroom scene. Plus, Kohler’s new DIY tap ware collection features interchangeable spouts and handles that let you become the designer!
Agape bathtubs: If statement bath tubs are your jam then you can’t go past the latest collection from Italy’s Agape. Available locally at Artedomus, there’s three new styles; the super original and organic inspired ‘DR’ (designed by Marcio Kogan), the beautifully curved and compact ‘Cuna’ and the unusual ‘Lariana.’
I.B. Rubinetterie Belmondo tap ware collection: Designed by Italian architect and designer Maurizio Duranti, this elegant new range features unique angular and octagonal shapes inspired by the Art Deco period of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The clean lined range is available in three finishes; chrome, gold and rose gold. From $150.
Kohler Components tap ware: With a range of different spouts and handles that can be easily interchanged, the latest from Kohler lets you custom create your own individual bathroom look. The minimalist range has three spouts and four handles to choose from, and is currently available in polished chrome, with new finishes being added soon.
“With Components the client is the designer. They are part of the design process,” says Bruno Chenesseau, design studio director, Kohler Kitchen and Bath EMEA. From $79.
Highgrove Bathrooms matte white freestanding baths: This new lightweight acrylic bath collection features three designs, all finished with an on-trend, matte white finish. From straight to more rounded edges, the lightweight acrylic designs are ideal for spaces where weight constraints are an issue (the material is much lighter than solid surface and stone tubs).
Furthermore, acrylic provides excellent thermal insulation properties for increased heat retention, so you can sit back and relax for longer. The baths are available in 1500mm or 1700mm lengths and start from $1450.
