Stainless Steel Counter/Mirror Wall

What a great use of light and space. The stainless steel counter is stunning and also notable is the clever use of a mirror on a wall to create the illusion of more space. I usually find mirrored walls to be sort of repulsive, but in this case it gives the illusion of a much larger space.

DURAT Countertops and Basins

These pictures have me thinking about expanding my horizons when it comes to kitchen and bath surfaces.

“DURAT is a solid polyester based material used for custom made surfaces in public and private interiors. It contains recycled plastics and is itself 100% recyclable.

The sophistication of the DURAT material lies in its silky warm feeling and the interesting impression of depth in its finish.

DURAT is extremely durable and can be renewed by slight sanding. The material is very resistant to wear, humidity, and various kinds of chemicals.”

PAON Bath Collection by Kazuhiko Tomita

The Paon Bath Collection is designed based on “the influence of a herd of elephants.”

A statement from the designer: “it is quite friendly and spiritual to hold these smoothly curved noses of elephants in porcelain. the low level of vital force could be activated by drinking divine water from the [mug]. any moment in any bathroom becomes more ritual by contacting with them directly.”

The entire herd is made up by the following:

* mug
* toothbrush holder
* soap dish
* containers with lids (3 sizes)
* wall hooks (2 sizes)

Inglas Deko Wilder Wein

Looking through architonic, I happened across this glass. It looks amazing- wish there was an up close picture to show the 3d effect…

“An award was made to Inglas Deko Wilder Wein for its special decorative properties. This , laminated safety glass with integrated decorative material consists of two thermally pre-stressed sheets of glass, with processed tendrils of Virginia creeper in the bonding area. In order to create the effect of space (3D effect) the tendrils of creeper are positioned at different levels of the bonding area. Typical applications for Inglas Deko Wilder Wein are shower partitions, partition walls, table tops and furniture sections.”

Moab 80 AIS All Inclusive Sink

Bathroom fixtures continue to amaze as more designers thoughtfully minimize even the most standard elements.

“The new Moab sink takes its source from the technology patented in 2004, anticipating
the future coming trends, of the hidden water sheet supplying, in a vision of
decontextualization of the object. AIS gives the chance to place the sink even out the
bathroom eliminating the tap as main feature of the bathroom area.”

Kohler WaterTile Ambient Rain

Decadence, anyone? In the light of all the take-a-short-shower-and-save-water messages, it seems wrong to post this, but I’m going to anyways because I’ve wondered how much these were and now I know I can’t afford ‘luxurious water delivery’.

“With their 54-nozzle sprayheads, WaterTile Ambient Rain overhead showering panels provide luxurious water delivery. Additionally, integrated chromatherapy offers mood-enhancing colored light sequences to offer a truly customized shower experience.”
