Company Profile... IB Rubinetterie

Founded in 1985, this Italian family run business is constantly pushing the boundaries in bathroomware and coming up with some of the most unique and creative pieces we see.
The company has a young, dynamic philosophy and aren't afraid to experiment with styles and finishes to suit the current design demands.

Over the years they have worked with infamous designers and architects to supply us with some of our all-time favourite ranges such as the fantastically avant garde Only One tapware inspired by the pipe work usually concealed.

One of my favourite things about IB is the fun they have with naming their ranges. Which brings me to their newest range available to us, Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. A sleek square line of tapware which include a contemporary loop lever and the option of a cascading spout or solid (depending on which personality you prefer of course i.e. Dr. Jeckyll or Mr. Hyde).

One of the newer ranges by IB, Batlo, was designed with the simple but oh so clever bottle shape in mind. An item we are constantly seeing in everyday life was turned into a stylish tap by architect Giulio Iacchetti.

Another of our favourites is the Love Me range which was one of the first mixers to include an open cascading spout. This unique way to supply water makes it a joy to wash your hands. Ah, so calming.
