The operation of AXOR’s Uno taps has been reduced to the essential – the flow of water is started or stopped by pressing the Select button, by turning the so-called ‘Zero’ handle, or by lifting the ergonomically shaped loop handle. Created in collaboration with Stuttgart-based Phoenix Design, the brassware range has been designed with purist principles in mind, with its minimal form consisting of two cylinders joined together at a right angle. The collection has some 70 separate products for washbasins, showers and bathtubs.
Design mirror by Alape is defined by its matt-black frame designed to make the mirror surface look as if it was suspended in the room. This puristic aesthetic created by Sieger Design shuns decorative elements to concentrate a more simplistic look.
+Stage from German kitchen brand Poggenpohl has been designed to meet modern storage needs and provide maximum design flexibility. The tall unit can either be freestanding anywhere in the home or incorporated into a kitchen design. The units are equipped with pocket doors to conceal the contents, and internal fittings can be configured to meet the user’s needs. A series of themed packages – ‘bar’, ‘office’, ‘breakfast’, ‘wardrobe’, ‘kitchen’ and ‘tea’, complete with integral lighting, power points and suitable appliances – have been created.
The Design Solutions range of shower enclosures by British manufacturer Aqata offers a reduced design that provides uninterrupted spans of 10mm toughened glass, creating a feeling of space and luxury. Models from the range can be almost entirely customised to suit individual preferences, with a choice of wall fixings and glass colour options available.
The recently launched Luv bathroom series was designed by Cecilie Manz for German brand Duravit. Shown is the Luv console in American Walnut with furniture in Taupe. The range’s mirrors feature integrated dimming and mirror-heating function.
The Bramham kitchen by Daval was commissioned for this KCA-designed kitchen for a home in Berkshire. It features a Charcoal Grey finish on the central island unit, balanced by a more subdued Dove Grey galley-style run of cabinetry, and a floating breakfast bar in natural oak.
Kitchen furniture from Rotpunkt has been used in this project by design studio Day True. The kitchen is in grey matt lacquer and the scheme includes a linear brass extractor hood and retro-inspired pendant lights.

Developed from products used in public-sector applications, Dornbracht’s Touchfree control operates without a visible sensor on the fitting, and can be combined with all the Dornbracht series. It automatically switches the water on and off again without any direct contact.
Dinesen’s HeartOak flooring planks are characterised by highly crafted butterfly joints. The natural cracks of the planks are preserved and locked with butterfly joints of oak, giving them a unique and high visual impact. The planks are also produced in a wide range of dimensions with widths up to 50cm and lengths up to 6m.
