Memento by Villeroy & Boch: The art of reductionism


Timeless style and a minimalistic design language: That’s how Villeroy & Boch distinguishes their product range Memento. Freed from all superfluous design details, Memento is about to bring strong pure lines to the bathroom. 

Diesem Credo folgt auch der neue Vorbauwaschtisch, mit dem Villeroy & Boch das Memento-Sortiment erweitert. Besonders in Kombination mit Materialien wie Natursteinplatten lässt sich die klare Form des 55er-Vorbauwaschtischs zur Geltung bringen. Dank des großzügig konstruierten Beckens mit dem funktionalen Überlauf bietet kann sich der kompakte Waschtisch auch auf kleinem Raum entfalten – beispielsweise in Hotelbädern oder im privaten Gästebad. 

Memento includes washbasins in six different sizes and a hand-washbasin. The collection’s WC and bidet are wall-mounted and reflect the typical Memento style. The WC is equipped with the hidden mounting system SupraFix as standard. The ceramic elements are available in glossy White, matt Edelweiss, Glossy Black and in some cases with a décor finish.  


The collection is beautifully complimented by furniture created from fine materials. Particularly worthy of attention is the exclusive Bright Oak surface, a light oak coloured veneer made of real wood with an unusual texture. There is a choice of different vanity units with pull-out compartments and drawers, countertops in various widths, matching towel rails, and lighted and unlighted mirrors with optional glass shelves and electric sockets. A tall cabinet with two doors and two drawers, a shelved element with three wooden shelves, and a unit on castors with a practical towel rail attached complete the furniture range, ensuring that suitable options for both large and small bathrooms are available.  


And a final tip. The lighted Memento mirror, available in three sizes: 60 cm, 80 cm and 120 cm, can be further enhanced with the soundsystem +Sound. Villeroy & Boch developed the soundsystem in coorperation with a specialist for high-end audio systems. The sound has been optimised for the challenging environment of the bathroom with its smooth, hard aurfaces. +Sound employs a digital sound processor with a total of six speakers in a three-way system with an output rating of 2 x 25 watts. The entire system is invisibly integrated in the bathroom mirror and the music is cordlessly transmitted and controlled via Bluetooth. iPhones, iPads and all other Bluetooth devices such as mobiles and MP3 players can be used with the system.
