BATHROOM LUXE
Architect and Interiors India|September 2021
BATHROOMS ARE BECOMING PERSONAL SPACES WITH WORLD CLASS ACCESSORIES AND FITTINGS THAT ARE ELEVATING THEM TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
BINDU GOPAL RAO

With new age washbasins, faucets, furnishings, bathtubs, lights and accessories, bathroom conversations are getting more and more interesting. Today, the lines are blurring between bathroom design and architectural sensibilities, even as designers are focusing on the space that matters a lot. Using new age materials, functions and gadgets, bathrooms are being finetuned in an ever-changing ensemble to become innovative and beautiful. Interestingly, the focus today is all about ecofriendly accessories and fixtures that also save water, apart from being energy efficient. After all, the bathroom is a personal space that demands time and investment. We list some products that can shape the bathroom of your dreams.

FIXTURES

Grohe SmartActive Hand Shower has three great spray patterns and comes with a choice of two sleek shapes, round and square for a fun bathing experience.

Gohe Tempesta 250 range is the first choice for relaxing and revitalising showering experiences and its EcoJoy technology saves up to 40 per cent of water too.

Grohe Rainshower SmartActive Hand Shower & Body Spray ups the ante as far as the shower routine is concerned with a pulsating water massage. When you activate the water, the body sprays pop out of the cover plate, allowing you to switch between Rain and Active Jet spray easily by turning them.

Carlo Frattini India’s Still by Fima is a showerhead with minimal state of art design with a simple and linear concept, whose clean and essential lines emphasise the natural movement of the water and gives an oomph factor to the bath space.

Euronics Hand Dryers are designed with a high-velocity air stream that eliminates water droplets and vapour, drying your hands in seconds.

Euronics Sensor Taps have built-in sensors that allow it to detect motion, and when an object appears, like a hand in front of the tap, it automatically lets out the flow of water immediately and cuts down water wastage by up to 70 per cent.

Carlo Frattini India’s 03 by Fima is a transparent and delicate jet that, in contact with the body, gives a pleasant sensation of regeneration and relaxes you instantly.

Kohler’s rain duet filter shower comes with a built in 5-layer cartridge with 2 filter meshes for sand and dirt, an activated charcoal layer for heavy metals, a KDF layer for chlorine and organic constituents and an anti-scalant layer for white spots in bathroom fitting.

Hansgrohe Metropol floor standing single lever taps for wash basins and bathtubs make impressive design statements in your home with their sleek designs.

Kohler Vive Pillar Tap has an easy and playful handle and avoids contact with the vessel wall even at low pressure.

Kohler Modern Life Edge Wall-hung Toilet with UF Seat is the slimmest bathroom suite powered by XTR Tech™: eXtra Thin Rim Technology to create a slim durable ceramic profile, with minimum aesthetic interruptions.

Hansgrohe Talis E self-closing faucet impresses in terms of design, sustainability, and robustness. The automatic stop of the water flow means there is no need to touch the surface after washing your hands, the need of the hour.
