Hansgrohe presented its latest ranges, including Pulsify, RainDrain, Finoris, Vivenis, AddStoris and AXOR One. For some of these products, HIX represented the first time they were available for viewing at an event in the UK.

Hansgrohe comprised its brands AXOR and hansgrohe, to showcase its latest innovations in bathroom design. With working water displays and its latest products on show, visitors were welcomed to the stand. As one of the founding sponsors of HIX 2021, Hansgrohe sponsored the talk, ‘Quietness with Attitude’, in partnership with Hotel Designs at the event.

Jay Phillips, Managing Director at Hansgrohe UK comments: ‘Designing for wellness has never been more important. The mental and physical health impact of the last 18 months has opened up important conversations around personal and corporate wellbeing, so much so that designers and architects need to work increasingly harder to create spaces that calm, rejuvenate and cocoon its users.

“Whether through applying biophilic principles, using clever lighting and layouts, or simply harnessing the restorative power of water when it comes to bathroom planning, good design has the power to transform the guest experience. Hansgrohe, with its brands AXOR and hansgrohe, is delighted to be sponsoring this event where such an important topic is top of the agenda.’

VitrA showcased Liquid, the new bathroom range created in collaboration with acclaimed British designer, Tom Dixon, at the newly launched Hotel Design Interiors (HIX) show.

The Liquid collection, a full bathroom range, is ideally suited to hospitality settings and is the latest addition to VitrA’s portfolio of designer collaborations.

The comprehensive range includes sanitaryware, furniture, taps, tiles, shower systems, and accessories. All of the products are designed to be able to work together or as stand-alone pieces.

Tom Dixon drew inspiration from a variety of sources. From the “big chunky taps and fat tubes” of Victorian bathrooms to the round-edged aesthetics of his recent work, which is reminiscent of the work of Claes Oldenburg and Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dog.

The functionality of the range is designed to be intuitive so that users instinctively understand how to operate the products, a facet of the collection which is particularly suited to hotel and hospitality environments.

Speaking about the need for this Tom commented “I wanted the collection to look like a kid’s sketch of a bathroom basin or a tap, displaying a clear logic and simplicity in looks and usage”.

Consciously choosing to offer only white ceramics, the range combines different materials including fluted glass and metal mesh for the furniture units. Taps and showers are available in chrome or for contrast, a new gloss black finish that is atypical in modern bathrooms. The range also includes distinctive wall tiles, available in five designs with colour options of white, black, grey, sage green and ecru.

The collection is perfectly suited for commercial projects where longevity is an important consideration. The collection can be combined in multiple styles to suit various purposes and environments, ensuring flexibility in a wide range of hotel and hospitality settings.

Levent Giray, Managing Director of VitrA UK, comments: “We are delighted to take part in the first ever HIX
event. It is the ideal setting for us to introduce the Liquid range to a commercial and hospitality focused
audience.

“Our extensive manufacturing, design and innovation capabilities have ensured that there is a unity to the breadth of the Liquid collection. At a time when there is a greater emphasis placed on the role of the
bathroom in hotel and hospitality settings, this cohesive range has a generosity of design that will sit
comfortably in many different environments.”

Scavolini has updated its popular Dandy furniture range with a smart built-in Amazon Alexa. Not only can you now talk to your home, but your virtual assistant is seamlessly integrated into its design via the Task Bar, an aluminium profile that incorporates smart technology.

For the bathroom, the Task Bar is located above the vanity top (as shown in the image above). A smart speaker is also integrated within so whether you want to listen to your favourite tunes while dressing, catch up on current affairs in the shower or ask Alexa to dim the lights at bath time, your wish is her command.

The Task Bar can also be fitted with a series of accessories, including shelves, towel rails and soap holders, as well as LED lights recessed along its length. The bathroom pictured features an aluminium Task Bar and Oak veneer vanity unit with Prestige White handles.

The concept brings together the best of old and new. Fabiana Scavolini, CEO of Scavolini, says: “Our Made in Italy tradition, teamed with cutting-edge technological research, led to this extraordinary project, which looks to the near future while reinventing our past. The shapes of Dandy Plus bring to mind our best-selling model from the 1980s, Dandy, in a clear tribute to Italian design and a solution to the needs of consumers who are increasingly connected.

“In partnership with celebrated architect Fabio Novembre of Novembre Studio, we started by thinking about the increasing presence of technology in our everyday activities and in our homes. Dandy Plus is a smart, innovative and comprehensive project, designed for everyone who wants an all-over digital experience at home.”

The new Chalfont furniture collection by Burlington brings a selection of storage solutions designed to add a traditional feel to the bathroom. Suitable for any design scheme, homeowners can choose from four sizes: 550mm, 650mm, 750mm and 1000mm, for seamless integration into cloakrooms, master family bathrooms and everything in-between.

Designed with plenty of storage to keep the bathroom looking its best, the new Chalfont furniture collection from Burlington promises a tranquil bathroom scheme that exudes quintessential British style.

This vintage design has a romantic touch designed to create a warm and elegant bathroom environment whilst serving as a considered storage solution.

Dimensions and colours to suit all bathroom spaces

Available in widths of 600, 800 and 1000 mm, this bathroom cabinet adds a touch of distinction both to small bathrooms where space is limited and to large spaces where more impact is needed. The collection is available in two stylish, timeless colours. In Satin White finish, Romea fills open spaces with subtleness and in Satin Dark Grey it highlights its personality and the texture of the wood even more. Inside, its drawers with internal dividers optimise storage and stand the test of time thanks to practical metallic handles and the ease of their soft close mechanism.

Practical touch

Romea’s integrated ceramic basin provides a large surface and two side decks to place all your toiletries. The elegant, classic bathroom vanity also stands out for its practicality when installed with a side towel rail or two robe hooks.

Manufactured in high-quality materials and with Roca’s durability guarantee, the Romea classic bathroom cabinet can be complemented with a matching mirror with a wooden frame that provides even more brightness when the Starlight LED spotlight is added.

VitrA Bathrooms has worked with award-winning multi-disciplinary artist Arik Levy to create the Voyage bathroom collection.  With more than 130 products available in the range this extensive collection offers endless possibilities for customisation.

The vast number of furniture and sanitaryware pieces can be individually tailored using the extensive range of colour, material and size options.  The sheer variety of horizontal and vertical units and wall panels create the ideal layout to suit any bathroom, shower or en-suite space.

Voyage is entirely wall-hung, making it exceptionally versatile and ideal for small or awkward spaces. Both open and closed storage options are available – from hooks and open shelving through to mirrored wall boxes and various storage units – and each piece can be positioned anywhere in the room to suit individual needs. Coordinating accessories, including a heated towel rail and a toilet roll and brush holder, are also available to complete the look.

VitrA Voyage Cloakroom

Voyage bathroom furniture is available in five different dual colour finishes, including flamed grey and natural oak, planked sand and stone grey, and flamed grey and forest green.

The sanitaryware is cast from hygienic and easy-to-clean ceramic; the Voyage collection includes a range of countertop and wall-hung washbasin units that offer a convenient combination of wet, dry and semi-wet areas, blurring the lines between a traditional bowl and a vanity unit. 

VitrA Voyage Statement Bathroom

Inspired by his time living and working in Japan, Arik Levy worked closely with VitrA’s in-house design team to create a bathroom collection that allows both mind and body to relax. He comments: “Taking time for ourselves in the bathroom each day can be extremely purifying. Our daily habits are deep-rooted, but I hope that the Voyage collection will help us to indulge ourselves and make time to enjoy our daily rituals”.
