by Staff | Tuesday, November 27, 2012 | 1 Comment
See what kitchen and bath products captured designers’ attention this past week…
1. Jaclo Industries – Dream Light Rain Canopy
Droplets from the Dream Light Rain Canopy glimmer, thanks to light-emitting diodes in your choice of white, blue, amber, red, green, or warm white. The light comes on automatically with the water flow or may be activated separately. The canopies are 16 inches round or square; the rectangle shape is 16 by 20 inches; jaclo.com.
2. Poliform – Varenna
Varenna modular system in glass, lacquer, and wood by Poliform; poliformusa.com.
3. Porcelanosa – Ona Beige
The large-format Ona Beige wall tiles have the weathered appeal of stone and the dappled texture of drifting sand. The grooved repeat pattern lends a modern look, while rectified edges allow for minimal grout joints-and thus a near seamless installation. The 13-by-40-inch matte-finish tiles are available in beige, marron, and natural; porcelanosa-usa.com.
4. Axor – Bouroullec
The quietly chic components of the Bouroullec collection were conceived as characters in a film-one that you get to direct. The modular and personalizable elements include sinks with multiple options for faucet arrangements; optimize for, say, left-handers or children. Offset shelves are even built into the sink, shower, and bathtub for added style and functionality. And ecofriendliness plays a starring role: Units boast low flow rates of 1.5 GPM; hansgrohe-usa.com/axor.
5. Kos – Geo Free Standing tub
Geo Free Standing tub in acrylic with fiberoptics in red, green, and yellow by Kos; kositalia.com.
