Imagine dipping your hand into a warm, silky, flowing stream. Visualise walking barefoot in a gently babbling brook. Picture lying in a beautiful, clear pool, the water softly cascading around you. Each of these imagined scenarios underpin the design of Vitae, a recent bathroom concept from Noken, developed in collaboration with Zaha Hadid Design. This revolutionary bathroom collection is striking in its form and presentation, with integral components that evoke images of Zaha Hadid 's dramatic architecture. In truth, Vitae offers the perfect refuge and escape from life 's everyday demands.
Checkerboard flooring is a great companion to subway tiles. The combination creates an orderly and organized bathroom where every element has its designated purpose and nothing seems left to chance. A contemporary bathroom with rustic elements has that balanced feel that easily impresses and is only enhanced by noticeable checkerboard floors.
Painted glass is always a treat. A vessel sink made of decorated glass is captivating and innovative, a functional and essential bathroom piece that we can easily call a work of art. It could be a decor element in and of itself, but the fact that it gets to be a part of your morning and evening routine is what makes its appearance even more important and monumental.
Bathroom mirrors have come a long way in the last few decades with options ranging from the simple and minimal to those that are far more ornate and bring back the charm and glitz of art deco at its flowing best. And if you are thinking about revamping your bathroom or want to plan for an entirely new bathroom, then we have the latest and trendiest collection of mirrors to get you started in the right direction. Enjoy!
Another practical necessity that can add a stylish element to your space is a step stool. These Squared Up Step Stools from The Land of Nod are great for helping little ones reach the sink…and for holding plush towels and other fine products when it 's bath time for guests!
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).
