The Gritti Palace Hotel in Venice is a five-star establishment of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Luxury Collection. Matching the stylish design of the guest rooms, the bathrooms of the hotel are furnished with baths made of steel enamel by Kaldewei.
EOOS is active in the fields of furniture, product and shop design. And even when Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann and Harald Gründl have very different characters, they have one thing in common: For the Viennese trio, design is a poetic discipline and a cultural service to society.
For today, what used to be the epitome of run-of-the-mill design no longer seems to fit into any neat category: the bathroom. It unites more functions than virtually any other area of the home. Therefore waterproof lounge furniture, parquet and wall plaster, rain shower and fireplace all have to be reconciled with one another.
Cinema screen or computer monitor, fridge or milk carton, a room, a table, the morning paper: our world is inconceivable without the rectangle. Perhaps this is why we are so attracted to Vero: the forms of this ceramic range are entirely restricted to the rectangle. After 12 years of success, Duravit’s Vero range has been extended by a furniture collection.
Time is luxury, and luxury is for enjoying. That applies also to the hours of intimacy and regeneration we spend in the bathroom. Which is why we are equipping it with wall units, seat cushions, warm materials and bathroom furnishings that show barely a trace of their proximity to water.
The demand for furniture finishes is high: In addition to the consumer's critical eye, when it comes to colour and design, finishes also need to withstand physical influences such as heat, moisture and other stress factors on a daily basis. Consequently, high quality is indispensable for guaranteeing resistance and durability. With Firnis, Alape now presents a new, high-gloss varnish finish which is about to meet these requirements.
Generously dimensioned floor-level shower solutions are important for the design of a barrier-free bathroom. With the floor-level shower partition range Koralle S600 showering areas can be adapted and aesthetically designed to fit in with different room layouts - with seemingly floating sliding doors.
Light is indispensible to well-being. No wonder that lamps and lighting systems are becoming ever more sophisticated. The correct illumination is crucial not just at the workplace but also in the private sphere. This is particularly true in the bathroom, which is increasingly used not only as a functional room for personal body care but also as a place of relaxation and revitali-sation.
Heavenly blue skies, fine sand and warm light: Casa de La Flora is located in a place where the sun, beach and sea appear to be as one. The 36 cubic villas that make up this pristine resort blend in seamlessly with their natural surroundings, offering paradisical luxury on the coast of Thailand. In the bathroom products from Duravit are about to contribute to the relaxation.
