Italy’s über-popular kitchen manufacturer is now in the bathroom business. Its new Blu brand offers an extensive line of furnishings, including wash basins, suspended or freestanding taps, mirrors, and a variety of wall units.
2 Impronta by Catalano
Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas’s sink features a basin that references the movement of water with organic bumps and hollows that guide its flow. An adjacent solid surface provides a place for storage, while a thin metal bar below is for hanging towels.
3 Trame by Tubes
This radiator’s steel tubes gently wave to create a multi-planar effect without disrupting the surrounding space. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni, Trame’s valves are connected remotely. The model comes in three sizes.
4 Palomba Collection by Laufen
Ludovica and Roberto Palomba are long time Laufen collaborators. Inspired by coastal inlets, cliffs and lanscapes carved out by water, this year’s collection includes a tub, freestanding and mounted sink, toilet, bidet and wall units.
5 Inipi B by Duravit
The compact version of Eoos’s sauna was made especially for small space dwellers. It comes freestanding or wall-mounted and features an integrated control panel and a function that saves heating energy during rest phases.
6 Horizontal Shower by Dornbracht
The Swiss manufacturer raises eyebrows with a shower system that requires the user to lie down on either her back or stomach. Six rainshowers are positioned above to offer different water flows and temperatures.
