The new digitally advanced GROHE Plus basin taps offer users the possibility to accurately control the water temperature and includes a visual colour marker to encourage users to avoid wasting energy.

Using the principle of “nudging”, a concept from behavioural economics, users are made aware when hot water is flowing unnecessarily which in turn encourages users to avoid wasting energy. This design approach promotes responsible use of the valuable resource of water and saves energy at the same time.

The eco-friendly functionality of GROHE Plus is reinforced by its accessible Eco Spray setting. To switch from the standard spray to the more refined Eco Spray of just four litres per minute users can simply swipe their hand over the lit icon on top of the spout to activate the sensor-controlled system which will change the water flow. The GROHE Plus collection also skillfully combines round and square elements, this makes the range a real statement for every modern bathroom, both in terms of sustainability and design.

Progressive design for elegant features in the bathroom
The dynamic design language of GROHE Plus is inspired by the arc, which symbolises both strength and lightness. Combining circular shapes with the crisp, clean lines of a cube, GROHE Plus creates an exciting architectural silhouette. At the same time, the design supports ergonomic comfort and invites interaction. The 90-degree swivel spout also increases the user-friendliness and caters for a variety of different interactions and uses.

The combination of cubic and organic shapes not only distinguishes GROHE Plus aesthetically but also makes the tap collection the perfect counterpart to both square and round ceramic lines such as GROHE Essence or GROHE Cube – all according to personal interior design style. To complete the harmonious overall look of the bathroom, the two-tone surface of GROHE Plus’ LED display made of chrome and high-quality acrylic glass in MoonWhite can also be found in several of GROHE’s shower collections too, such as the GROHE SmartControl thermostat and GROHE Rainshower SmartActive head showers.

In addition to the new digitally-enhanced models, the GROHE Plus collection includes a wide range of classic single-lever mixers in different sizes and with additional functions such as a pull-out spout, wall-mounted 2-hole basin mixers, taps for shower and bathtub, and a visually striking freestanding bathtub option. For even greater design freedom that meets the growing demand for personalised style in the bathroom, GROHE Plus is available in Chrome, SuperSteel and Brushed Hard Graphite finishes, the latter of which is accompanied by a black LED display.

RRP from £699.00

White Tulip is the first complete bathroom range created entirely by Philippe Starck for Duravit. The range includes free-standing ceramic washbasins, round above-counter basins, matching free-standing and wall-mounted toilets and bidets, bathroom furniture, matching mirrors, taps and bathtubs.

The elegant shapes of the components within the series echoes the organic silhouette of a tulip in bloom; exuding an almost sculptural feel.

Basins

The monolithic design of the free-standing ceramic washbasin is particularly eye-catching. The washbasin can be attached to the wall or the floor as required.

Designed in the same style, the round above-counter basin has an aesthetically pleasing delicately outward sloping edge. The right-angled washbasin, when viewed from above, also reflects this form. Also available as a furniture washbasin and as a hand rinse basin, both come in two sizes and complete the range.

White Tulip Bathroom Range by Duravit

Bidets & Toilets

Matching free-standing and wall-mounted toilets and bidets complement the impressive ceramic elements. The White Tulip style is also found on the matching urinal. The toilets are equipped with the new HygieneFlush technology.

All new HygieneFlush toilets come with the tried and tested HygieneGlaze ceramic glaze as standard to guarantee even greater hygiene. Fired into the interior of the toilet, HygieneGlaze ensures that approx. 90% of bacteria (for example e. coli) are eradicated after six hours, and approx. 99.9% after 24 hours. The outstanding quality of White Tulip is also reflected in its new lifetime guarantee, which Duravit offers on the ceramic elements in the range for selected countries.

Bathroom Furniture

The corresponding furniture is as extraordinary as the entire range. The miter-cut, extremely finely crafted edges are testament to the precise composition of the White Tulip furniture, which comes in widths of between 350 and 1300 mm.

Matching Mirrors

Matching mirrors from the White Tulip series are available in versions controlled by sensors or an app. Creating a special visual effect, the mirrored glass has been brought forward which makes the mirror’s surface appear almost transparent around the illuminated area.

Freestanding Bathtub

The free-standing bathtub with its seamless acrylic paneling mirrors the form of the ceramics. The oval version is available in two sizes: 1800×800 mm, with 1600×900 mm for smaller rooms. The round bathtub with a diameter of 140 cm, offers a spacious interior.

White Tulip Phillippe Starck for Duravit

Taps

White Tulip also includes the first range of taps developed by Philippe Starck for Duravit. The consistent design element is the tulip-shaped handle that echoes the shape of the washbasins and bathtubs and is particularly easy and pleasant to operate thanks to the polished surface, whilst the 160 finely engraved vertical stripes produce a truly sophisticated effect. Washbasin mixers are available in various “comfort” heights S, M, and XL. The range also includes bidet, shower and bath faucets.

The unusual design of the White Tulip series will add a stylish touch to any setting. Well-engineered technologies such as HygieneFlush and HygieneGlaze, tip-on technology and self-close action as well as mirror heating and app-controlled, customizable lighting complete the feel-good factor.

Duravit

Roca has introduced four new contemporary brassware collections to add to its impressive brassware portfolio, offering a wide range of solutions that complement every style of bathroom.  

Pals

Roca Brassware Pals
Pals

Straight, minimalist lines and different geometrics come together in Pals, a modern collection with an array of configurations and originality as a distinguishing trait. The basin and bidet models in the Pals collection include a convenient joystick handle, in line with the latest trends, providing an elegant design.  The combination of straight and round lines achieves a striking contemporary aesthetic.   The Pals collection features Roca’s exclusive Evershine, an electrolytic coating which guards against corrosion, delivers brightness, a sparkling mirror effect and an anti-scratch finish.  A long lasting and hygienic solution is guaranteed, thanks to the anti-lime scale deposition materials used. The result is a high-quality product, made from premium materials. The Pals collection includes brassware options for basins, bidets, baths and showers.  

Carelia

Carelia (pictured top) is a smooth-body, contemporary design collection, which features a soft turn handle and pan handle lever in the elegant basin mixer model. Carelia offers a wide range of options, including basin mixers, deck-mounted bath mixers, and a choice of solutions for the shower. Available in chrome and also in a sleek powder-coated black finish (basin and bath mixers only), Carelia offers stylish design at a competitive price point.  

Roca Brassware Alfa
Alfa

Alfa

Offering a gently angled, contemporary design, Alfa (pictured right) is available in a variety of matching options. The range includes basin, bidet and bath-shower mixers, all featuring a soft turn handle and full headed lever. All products in the range benefit from the advantages of Roca’s Evershine finish.  

Cala

Cala features a curved cylindrical body and a longer projection spout on basin mixer models, as well as several convenient options for showers and bath-shower mixers. Roca’s exclusive Evershine coating guarantees a long-lasting, polished finish and makes for easy cleaning of these contemporary bathroom taps.  

Water Saving

The new Pals, Alfa and Cala basin-mixers include a built-in aerator in the spout which limits the flow to 5 litres per minute. This allows water consumption to be minimised without reducing the level of functionality. Thanks to the air injection, the aerator guarantees a plentiful, soft and bubbling water flow that also prevents splashing.  

Energy Efficiency

Thanks to Roca’s Cold Start® technology, all taps in the new ranges open to the right, always starting with cold water – meaning daily rituals that don’t require hot water can be carried out without unnecessarily activating the boiler, saving energy and cost.   David Bromell, Head of Marketing at Roca comments: “Roca brassware is manufactured to the highest quality and we’re exceptionally proud of our broad design portfolio, ensuring that we offer beautiful design and functional solutions for every bathroom and at all price points.”

With brassware being an integral part of any bathroom design and many consumers changing up their taps to give the room an instant update, as a major supplier in this market RAK has introduced five new ranges.

With a solution for every installation and finishes to meet every design requirement, the latest RAK brassware ranges offer the opportunity to bring individual flair to this most personal of spaces. 

RAK-Sorrento has a timeless elegance, with a long body and spout combined with single lever control for a modern twist. RAK-Portofino and RAK-Ischia both feature their own distinct styling to bring contemporary design to the bathroom with ease, while RAK-Positano is sleek and streamlined making it the perfect choice for any minimal setting.

RAK-Amalfi is a brassware range that encourages creativity, with handles that can be combined in a number of ways with the tap body, mixing metals for an individual look throughout the bathroom. 

Each of the five new ranges can be chosen in one of four finishes – Matt Black, Brushed Nickel, Brushed Gold and Polished Chrome.

Offering a market-leading 15-year warranty and environmentally conscious water saving elements, function combines seamlessly with form across each of these new ranges, to ensure that the finishing touch becomes a focal point of the bathroom.
