Bisazza has recently expanded its core business of mosaic tiles by launching a new bathroom division of the brand. Bisazza Bagno will focus on quality and variety as the main commercial strategy for the new brand and has already enlisted the help of some of the design scene’s most celebrated designers to create its first few collections.
Showcased for the first time earlier this year at Cersaie, the international exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings held in Bologna, Italy, the Wanders Collection is designed by none other than Marcel Wanders.
The collection features a series of consoles and mirrors in black or white lacquered resin with smoked glass top, clearly inspired by Baroque furniture, in clear contrast with the “pop” design of white ceramic sinks and the imposing white fibreglass bathtub which reinterprets the classic icon of the bar of soap, soft and rounded.
Marcel Wandershas this to say about his collection: “The collection derives its original concept from a fantasy of mine, taking a bath immersed in soap: the apotheosis of clean! I kept this idea in me for a long time, until Bisazza helped me to express it. The collection has then grown and diversified as far as to include three different lines, each with its own well-defined aesthetics, from antique to construction architecture. The idea of presenting different periods in a single collection comes from one of my beliefs: people have two opposing forces within them, one towards an eternal dimension where things last over time, the other towards change. In my design I oscillate and move between these two poles, the old and the new, reassurance and innovation. I believe it is an answer to a very human feeling. The Wanders Collection reflects precisely this duality.”
I don’t know about you guys but I love the contrasting styles that Marcel Wanders has incorporated into this collection. Talk about a statement in the bathroom!!
Curves or angles? This may be the very question you’re asking yourself as you shop for the perfect bathtub. And if you’re a modern design enthusiast, the choice becomes even more difficult, as there are clean-lined advantages to both approaches. Today we shine the spotlight on round bathtubs, both oval and circular. We’ll take a look at the different styles that can be evoked by round tubs, and we’ll even point you in the direction of some fabulous bathtub sources should you be ready to make a purchase!
Round bathtubs are often used to accentuate clean, crisp powder rooms. And when it’s a room with a view, a simple form is the preferred tub of choice, especially when the focus is on the scene on the other side of the glass windows. Bathrooms with round tubs often feature round sinks. Here’s one more modern powder room with a view. Round tubs are often used to mirror other round forms in the powder room, such as the skylight in the all-white bathroom below. Curved built-in wall shelving provides another focal point in this space, especially since it’s filled with coral and other natural wonders.
