Update Your Bathroom Now With These 7 Luxurious Fixtures
Italian luxury bathroom fixtures brand Zucchetti.Kos is now in Manila, joining the roster of well-known brands housed in The Tile Gallery.
Ever since it was established in 2005, The Tile Gallery—with brothers Kenneth and Raymund Hing at the helm—has always been associated with products that carry remarkable design and exceptional quality. What used to be a showroom that’s primarily dedicated to tiles has now evolved to provide a one-stop shop of premium building materials.
Enhancing their current product catalogue are products from Zucchetti.Kos, a brand that combines Zucchetti, Italy’s undisputed leader in the design-led production of taps and mixers with 90 years of experience, and Kos, which is best known for their luxurious bathtubs and shower enclosures. The marriage of the two in 2007 gave birth to a new brand that places importance on elevating the human experience through bathroom fixtures that are designed to deliver utmost comfort, convenience, and relaxation to the user.
To celebrate this new partnership between The Tile Gallery and Zucchetti.Kos, the Italian brand’s Commercial Director, Alessandra Fagotti, visited Manila and unveiled their newest collection of distinctly Italian fixtures whose elegant and sculptural design would fit most luxurious homes in the metro.
Here are seven bathroom fixtures that are guaranteed to amp up the look and ambiance in your private sanctuary:
1. “Aloe” freestanding bathtub by Kos
It was named after the aloe plant which has been used for beauty and medicinal purposes since ancient times. The idea of wellness associated with its name is translated in a product defined by minimalistic, sculptural design with gentle curves. Its smooth lines and silky texture is made for ultimate relaxation. The matt effect lends a distinctly elegant feel to a bathroom.
2. “Brim” single-lever mixer by Zucchetti
This complete series of single-lever mixers has a design that perfectly integrates two different shapes, circle and square. Designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, the items under this collection look simple and modern, seamlessly incorporating functionality with timeless style. They are made of lead-free brass and custom-designed components to limit water output, without undermining comfort.
3. “Closer” single-lever mixer by Zucchetti
“Dynamism, freedom and flexibility” are the adjectives that prove the products in Closer range are not your ordinary water taps. Designer Diego Grandi took into careful consideration the gestures associated with water and came up with designs that are easy to use and personalize. The rounded corners specifically give a simple, ergonomic grip.
4. “Nikko” single-lever mixer by Zucchetti
This new product was designed to unite aesthetics with industrial production needs. Its design is dynamic yet absolutely practical. A green product, it is made of brass with a low lead content and devices that regulate and limit water output while ensuring a robust, pleasant jet. Its neutral, rounded silhouette is a perfect fit for most bathroom styles.
5. “Quadrat Pool Relax” by Kos
Imagine having your own mini infinity pool at home! Really, it’s all you need for that personalized spa experience in the comforts of your own home. This free-standing tub, designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, comes with a solarium and padded sunbed. It’s big enough for 3 to 4 people. What we think are its best features are the adjustable hydromassage system with two settings for back and leg massage and the exclusive Milk System that releases infinite tiny oxygen particles into the water to turn it from clear to milky-white; the Milk System helps tone muscles and stimulate skin hydration.
6. “WaterCandy” hand shower by Zucchetti.Kos
Another revolutionary design by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, WaterCandy is an award-winning hand shower that’s lightweight and easy to handle. The best thing about it is it provides a variable intensity hydrotherapy massage with five settings. It can be used to massage the body aside from its traditional function.
7. “Silkstone Tray” by Kos
Complete the elegant look of your bathroom with a shower tray entirely made of silkstone. There are over 25 different shapes and sizes to choose from in this collection; they’re available in matt white or stone-effect textured white finish. The 3 cm-thick shower trays may be installed both on or off-floor.
