Do or Don't: Wallpaper in bathrooms

Wallpaper can be a tricky wall covering to pull off in bathrooms. It should most definitely only be used in powder rooms and non wet-areas but when done correctly can look absolutely breathtaking.

Whether it is an over-the-top print or subtle geometric pattern (as shown in the image above) wallpaper will instantly turn a cold, utilitarian room into an inviting space that reflects your personal style and some creativity.

Some of the most striking powder and guest bathrooms we've worked on have included some fantastic wallpapers combined with feature basins (bronze bowls, stone basins etc) and special finished tapware which immediately drew you into the space.

This on-going trend is adaptable to most people, from the bold-eclectic style addicts to the chic traditionalists, there's a wallpapered bathroom out there for everyone!

New Product Preview: Zucchetti Closer

An eclectic concept by Diego Grandi for an unusual showerhead.
CLOSER will be a big-appeal design object, both poetic and essential, a more dynamic reworking of the traditional idea of the showerhead for total relaxation designed to suit the individual.    

“Extremely flexible, adjustable and extendible, inspired by the famous “Zucchetti  - Domatori d’acqua (water masters)” TV advert, my aim with CLOSER is to reinvent the shower as a moment of personalised, regenerating, relaxing wellbeing.” Diego Grandi

A wall-mounted horizontal/vertical swivel system allows the jet of water to be pointed in different directions.      
Simple and intuitive to use, CLOSER will let the water flow freely all over the body, massaging gently or firmly, to regenerate body and mind or give a blast of energy.

AXOR Starck V

Axor Starck V: Experiencing the Vitality of Water

New achievement in water design: Axor, the designer brand of Hansgrohe SE, is introducing a revolutionary washbasin mixer. Growing out of Axor’s relentless drive for products that reflect the vitality and emotionality of water, the brand’s first transparent mixer, Axor Starck V, was brought to life in collaboration with Philippe Starck. Its official presentation takes place at the Axor flagship store DURINIQUINDICI in Milan from April 7 – April 13.

“The vortex phenomenon has occupied my father Klaus Grohe for several years”, explains Philippe Grohe, Head of Axor. “His intuition that water could visibly be brought to the foreground through the vortex, was the starting point in the development of Axor Starck V. In our long-time friend Philippe Starck, we not only found the perfect design partner to create a shape around the vortex, but also a valuable sparring partner in the developmental process. Ultimately, the realisation of the project was not made possible by creativity and determination alone, but by technical know-how and over 100 years of experience in handling water.” The result according to Philippe Starck “is a mixer that represents the absolute minimum: totally transparent, almost invisible, and enclosing a miracle that is the vortex.”

Connecting with Water through the Vortex

For more than 20 years the human interaction with water and space has been at the core of Axor’s innovations. Axor Starck V will be one of the most prominent translations of this idea yet: with the beauty and dynamism of its vortex, the mixer bridges the gap between the functional and emotional aspects of water at the washbasin, transforming it from a basic commodity to a valuable resource. 

Organic Design and the Aesthetics of Transparency

The organic, transparent design of Axor Starck V gives it an exciting, yet subdued presence. Besides serving the technical function of making water visible, transparency aesthetically fuses the mixer body with its surroundings, thus, in essence de-materialising it. The openly designed spout contributes to the natural water experience: before the eyes of the user, the upward, swirling motion of water through the mixer’s body and its “free-fall” into the washbasin trigger a feeling of joy and happiness. 

Experiencing Water through Technology and Innovation

True to the Hansgrohe principle of producing highly aesthetic, functional and sustainable bathroom products, Axor Starck V shines with a multitude of innovations that together are certain to define a whole new category of washbasin mixers. For example, the mixer is produced out of the organic material crystal glass, which is sustainable and durable. With a flow rate of 4 l/min, Axor Starck saves water without compromising the user experience. The open, rotatable, and detachable spout offers additional comfort: flexible installation of the mixer body in combination with the washbasin and easy cleaning in the dishwasher.
