While the need for ample grooming products may be hard to deny, it 's easy to create a unified look with matching storage containers. The Strapping Desk and Bath Storage Collection brings handwoven style home: Looking for a way to add color without settling for containers featuring cartoon characters? Acrylic is a fun, eye-catching material loved by kids and adults alike. This On Display Quad Cup in Yellow from The Land of Nod is perfect for bathroom products ranging from toothpaste to hair bands. And if you get tired of it in the powder room, you can give it a special place in the art closet.
The Vitae collection is both organic in its design and futuristic. How did you achieve this balance? When you work with a natural inspiration such as water, it is easy to come to an organic design—it 's what we expect for a bathroom collection. Futuristic? Yes, it is also futuristic and here you can observe the hand of Zaha Hadid. So, the balance comes because of two paths joining in a unique idea.
The gradual using up of natural resources will necessitate a serious review of how we use energy and water. Noken 's ‘Ecodesign ' approach offers a selection of environmentally friendly options that minimise risk and achieve a high level of efficiency. For example, the levers on its ‘cold water opening system taps ' move only to the left: this allows for temperature control and ensures hot water is used only when necessary. Other sustainability instruments developed by Noken include: an ‘Eco cartridge ' (its two-position switch makes it possible to use 50% less water and energy), and a water ‘flow rate limiter ' (that uses jets and air to reduce water consumption).
The past few seasons have seen plenty of attention being showered on gray and its many shades. When it comes to neutrals, nothing currently beats the charisma and popularity of gray. This obviously means more and more of us are starting to use the color in places where white was otherwise the gold standard. Contemporary bathrooms present one such setting, and instead of the simple white backdrop, homeowners are now starting to experiment with gray at its diverse best. While this is a great idea on many levels, a bathroom devoid of all color can quickly seem drab and boring. Today, we intend to drive out this boredom with some colorful zest!
Many of Vitae 's components—the taps, basins and sanitaryware—evoke images of Zaha Hadid 's dramatic architecture. Was this a conscious decision? Yes and no. Undeniably, the essence of Zaha Hadid is in Vitae: the collection has been true to the DNA of Zaha Hadid 's designs. But inspiration found in nature, water, trees, mountains is the main source for our work. So, although we were aware of this, we did not have all of those designs in mind all the of time, but allowed ourselves to get lost in a world of nature.
Vast and luxurious bathrooms already have a grandiose look to them, but if you don 't want to get too carried away with the modern look, a checkered floor will balance the scale with its vintage flair.
