Trend: Pastel bathrooms

Soft pastels make sense in a bathroom; they evoke a feeling of calm & wellness.
Pastels are very on trend in interiors at the moment, and in bathrooms look fabulous paired with soft metal finishes like copper & rose gold.
Anything from minty greens to pale blues to dusty peach, this trend can adapt to any home and we think its here to stay!

New Product: Q wall hung pan

We are excited to announce the Q range by Studio Bagno is now complete with the latest release of their wall hung pan.
5 years after the release of the Q back to wall suite, Studio Bagno have again teamed up with industrial designer Mark Armstrong (designer of the Sydney Olympic torch) to add the finishing piece to this range of toilets.
Designed in Australia and manufactured in Europe exclusively for Studio Bagno, the Q pan's have a distinct design that is both sleek and minimal characterised by a discrete absence of detail and the rakish ocean liner prow, the styling is calculated to stand the test of time.
We love to support local design and high quality, this is an Australian design icon with superior hydraulic characteristics in the pan design to ensure optimum four star performance.

Trend: Modern Memphis

If you haven't noticed, modern Memphis is back and in a big way.
Geometric lines, marble and clashing patterns: all tell-tale signs of the 80's mega trend founded by Ettore Sottsass.
This time around, there seems to be a bit of restraint exercised. The pieces are more refined, sophisticated and understated.
Can this trend be translated into bathroom design? Why not.

Stand by Norm Architects

Modernist details of 1920s and ’30s Victorian interiors are reinterpreted in the ‘Stand’ product line by Danish Norm Architects.
The simple, minimalist bathroom and home furnishings were created for Italian company ex.t, and will be released during Milan Design Week 2015.

In line with the soft essentialism characteristic of the studio, the collection visually communicates a sense of spatial calm and restfulness. Geometric forms, neutral colours, and authentic Tuscan production work together to create a distinct character true to influential insights drawn from spare, yet enchanting Danish landscapes.
Four products are featured in the line: ‘Stand’ bathtub and washbasin, ‘Hat’ lamps, and ‘Felt’ shelf, all of which were finalized via a strict principle of reduction. The studio reinterpreted excessively decorated furnishings of the early 20th century, stripping them to a point of equitability where nothing more could be added or taken away. ‘Stand’ products are manufactured using living tech® material that superbly compliments black metal components for a holistic sense of lightness.

Vola: new releases

Iconic tapware brand VOLA have just released a brand new range of showers and we cannot contain our excitement!
Originally designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1968, VOLA tapware is a design classic that is only added to rarely. So you know when they release something it's going to be special and complimentary to Jacobsen's original masterpiece.

The Round Series hand shower is a seamless extension of the VOLA Round-head shower.
They are based on the same design DNA.

The core design elements of the Round Series are the spherical shape and the narrow ring. This elegant ring can be seen clearly in the side view. The slender cylindrical form of the supporting tube extends behind and beyond the shower head, subtly emphasising the latter’s status as the key element.

The shower rail also relates to existing VOLA design elements. It is attached to the wall with a circular fixing, matching and adjacent to the round hand shower head – creating a horizontal harmony with the shower taps.

When ready for use, the Round Series hand shower head can be held in place by the optional shower rail. A button responds easily to one hand, sliding it to the best height for effective showering.

070W & 080W
The luxury private bathroom, hotel spa or sauna should be an oasis of tranquillity. An escape from worldly matters. A place to rejuvenate the body, and allow the mind to empty and the soul to meditate.

Into this environment of total relaxation and well being, VOLA has introduced two new therapeutic products: the Kneipp Hose 070W and the Waterfall Shower 080W.

Both reflect the continuity of VOLA classic designs. Both illustrate the innovation for which VOLA is sought after by leading architects and designers across the globe.

We hope to have these available in Australia (and in a Candana showroom) soon so watch this space!

Framed shower screens

For many years all the rage in shower screens has been frameless.
But we are now seeing a complete turnaround and we are predicting the next big thing for shower screens will be thick, defining frames.
Whether its a traditional bronze frame or chic minimal black frame, this trend can adapt to any bathroom design. 
What was once made invisible is reappearing as a feature.
