Attractive combination of wood structure of “oak nature beige” with taupe-coloured glass fronts / Range expansion to fulfil individual preferences of taste / Interior basins, WCs and bidets in an organic design vocabulary / Successful combination of German quality and Italian design /
Frankfurt/Ratingen. At the ISH 2013, Keramag presented an ex-pansion of the “citterio” bathroom series, which was introduced last year under the new premium umbrella brand of “Keramag Design”. In addition to the previous wood structure “oak grey-brown” with black glass panels, the bathroom furniture is now available in the design “oak nature beige” with matching glass fronts in “taupe”. According to the manufacturer, this creates a much wider and diverse range to fulfil individual preferences of taste.
The versatile furniture range includes wash basin vanity units, which can be combined with one another, in six widths of 450 to 1,350 mm. They have glass fronts in “black” or “taupe”, which are surrounded by a champagne-coloured metal frame with integrated handle. The range also includes asymmetrical wash basin vanity units in sizes of 1,200 and 1,350 mm, which offer additional storage space of cosmetics and decorative items and create further storage in the form of a side element with both a standard and an internal drawer. The bathroom furniture range is being complemented by a 1,600 mm tall cabinet, a shelf with mirror at the same height and a 600 mm high illuminated mirror element in three widths. The frames of the mirror with LED lighting pick up on the wood structure of the cabinets and round off the wash basin unit in its appearance.
The impressive style element of the wash basins is the combination of symmetrical and asymmetrical versions with clear geometric external shapes for an exact combination with the furniture. The interior basins of the asymmetrical wash basins and top frame wash basins are defined by an organic design vocabulary, which also dictates the design of the WCs and bidets. Ceramic, seat and lid of the WCs create a suc-cessful, harmonious unit. The integrated WC seat emphasises the natural shape. The convenient projection is 560 mm. The bidets, which are also organically shaped, round off the ceramic product range.
The complete bathroom series, which was designed by renowned architect and designer Antonio Citterio, is impressive with its timelessly modern, chic design vocabulary, high-quality materials and the fulfil-ment of the highest demands on ambiance and function. Keramag summarises the symbiosis as follows, “Italian design meets German quality”. To round off the look, the manufacturer recommends the matching bathtubs and shower trays from the “Preciosa” series, the Koralle shower partition “S550 by Antonio Citterio” and the “Axor
Citterio M” fittings.
