Imagine dipping your hand into a warm, silky, flowing stream. Visualise walking barefoot in a gently babbling brook. Picture lying in a beautiful, clear pool, the water softly cascading around you. Each of these imagined scenarios underpin the design of Vitae, a recent bathroom concept from Noken, developed in collaboration with Zaha Hadid Design. This revolutionary bathroom collection is striking in its form and presentation, with integral components that evoke images of Zaha Hadid‘s dramatic architecture. In truth, Vitae offers the perfect refuge and escape from life‘s everyday demands.
Each fitting has been designed to meet the highest global standards with regards to reducing water consumption. Even the sink has been carefully designed to be small in scale, with a conical bowl that maximises the depth while using the minimum amount of water. It would have to be the breadth and depth of the complete collection — it is extremely flexible, yet each element is distinctly identifiable as TONO. It is truly unique.
The challenge was to create a set of components that work together as part of an integrated system, with an unlimited choice of finishes and materials. Unified by a common, simple design language and palette of complementary materials and colour tones, the minimalist aesthetic brings to the fore an honesty of material, simplicity of form and the craft of manufacture.
As opposed to some far-fetched, futuristic fantasy, the bathroom of the future will be made up of several essential, realistic components: sustainability, technology and good design will be key to bathroom innovation. One company in the vanguard of this is Noken, a manufacturer of bathroom equipment and part of the Porcelanosa Group.
There‘s nothing like the freshness and softness of a new towel. Each time you bring one home, there‘s the hope that it will never become frayed, stiff and dull. There‘s so much potential…but the truth is, without some effort, that new towel is destined for the land of visible wear and tear. How do you keep it soft and fluffy? If you think the secret lies in loading up on fabric softener, you may be barking up the wrong tree. In reality, a few simple changes can make a big difference for your towels.
