VitrA introduces Liquid – a new range designed in collaboration with Tom Dixon. Liquid is the first-ever bathroom range by the acclaimed British designer. Tom was impressed by VitrA’s extensive experience and highly specialized in-house design team, spending time at the sophisticated manufacturing plant and Innovation Centre at the core of the company’s operation. The collaboration with VitrA has allowed Tom to explore new design opportunities while gaining an appreciation of the complexities of manufacturing products for the bathroom.
VitrA and Tom Dixon share a similar vision for creating innovative and original designs that retain their appeal over the years. For Liquid, part of Tom’s inspiration was Victorian bathrooms.
Recognizing the current obsession with skinny and reduced designs, Tom has created the opposite, incorporating fatter, softer lines that are inherently more generous, strong, and long-lasting. The smooth, rounded edges are easy to clean, alongside taps with simple controls, while soft edges ensure a safe bathroom environment. While the overall design is stripped back and reduced, a style Tom refers to as ‘expressive minimalism’, the functionality is intuitive so that users can instinctively understand how to operate the products. “I wanted the collection to look like a kid’s sketch of a bathroom basin or a tap,” says Tom, “displaying a clear logic and simplicity in looks and usage.
Combining influences of Victorian plumbing with elements of pop art, Liquid has both a traditional and a contemporary aesthetic. Instead of aligning to a passable trend, the products are designed to last, both from a design and a quality perspective.
The all-white ceramics are paired with taps, showers, and accessories in either gloss black or classic chrome – creating a bold, striking aesthetic while continuing the core timeless value of the range.
Launched in London last autumn, the Liquid range received its first award earlier this year from Wallpaper*, the world’s number one global design, art, and contemporary lifestyle magazine. Tom Dixon joins designers including Ross Lovegrove, Sebastian Conran, Arik Levy, Terri Pecora, and Claudio Bellini, each of whom has collaborated closely with VitrA’s in-house team for over a decade to create bathrooms that reflect their own vision and aesthetic style.
Maison Valentina aims to provide consumers with their own place dedicated to self-care, providing a private oasis through luxury handcrafted design products with customizable options. As a result, a bathroom is a place that demands a bit of added luxury and comfort.
One of Maison Valentina‘s newest additions to this famous event is the Lapiaz Washbasin. This washbasin is a statement object that will stand out in any bathroom interior design, with a delicate golden drop inspired by typical karst formations generated by the disintegration of limestone rocks.
In addition to this product, the Nazca Washbasin will be shown at iSaloni 2022. This 2-door washbasin compliments any bathroom decor with a richer earth tone thanks to its matte walnut root veneer construction, vintage brass matte base, and marble sink.
The Shinto pedestal sink is a new Maison Valentina product inspired by Shinto shrines, places of worship, and ‘kami’ gods’ dwellings, where precious artifacts are housed in the innermost chamber of the altar, hidden from view. Shinto Freestanding features a glossy black lacquered structure and a Nero Marquina marble washbasin for a striking look in your bathroom.
