LUXE BATH SPACES
BATH FIXTURES HAVE A BIG IMPACT ON ELEVATING THE LOOK AND FEEL OF MUNDANE BATHROOM SPACES, AND NEW AGE PRODUCTS DO JUST THAT
BINDU GOPAL RAO

Modern bathroom designs are a balanced mix of aesthetics and functionality. There are numerous ways to imagine a bathroom, based on the client’s requirement and the intended use of the space. Bath fixtures are the finer details that contribute to the overall look and feel of the bathroom.

PRODUCT MIX

The market today has seen a plethora of launches in the bath fixture space that combine form and functionality. SCHELL is offering a particularly hygienic and water efficient solution that perfectly matches the EDITION urinal series with the contact-free, infrared controlled EDITION E system for the COMPACT II concealed WC flush valve. The flush is triggered by a hand approaching in the proximity area or automatically when leaving the WC (room monitoring). Dilip Kumar, managing director, SCHELL India, says, “To prevent the build-up of deposits in the nozzle orifice, the WC cartridge additionally has an automatic nozzle cleaning pin. This is activated with every flush. A filter provides additional protection against contamination.”

Known for offering a truly global, multi-brand, multicategory portfolio, LIXIL houses leading global brands like American Standard, GROHE, INAX and TOSTEM. New products under the GROHE brand includes the Smart Connect Shower that allows the user to switch between or combine two spray patterns without having to reach up to the shower head, thanks to the wireless remote control, which can be placed anywhere, as well as three new sanitaryware collections starting from entry level to premium price segments, including features like PureGuard, which focuses on superior hygiene. Visionnaire has launched exquisite washbasins, consoles and wellness units for bathrooms as part of their Beauty 2020 collection that includes the LEONARDO Wellness Unit and KOBOL Wellness Unit.

FOCUS ON EFFICIENCY

Technology is entering the home space to make homes more functional, reduce energy consumption and make environments more pleasant. “The bathroom has witnessed the development of several technologies. GRAFF Aqua-sense shower system has found applications both in private residences and in the spa sector. The final user can benefit from a touchscreen technology, which is very user-friendly and satisfying in terms of aesthetics. Watching videos, listening to music and enjoying the different shades of colour lightening are all functions that make the shower a very intense moment, recreating the spa experience even inside a private house,” says Maurizio Meloda, technical & operations director, GRAFF India.
