Raku accents a non-refracting base with
lustrous surface details. The collection,
including white body wall tiles and fine
porcelain stoneware options, takes its
name and inspiration from a style of
traditional Japanese ceramics.
Danish industrial designer Cecilie Manz channeled Nordic
modernity into Luv. Her vision of a bowl filled with water on a
table laid the framework for the collection's oval, abovecounter washbasins, which are made of the company's
proprietary DuraCeram ceramic material and fixed atop fourlegged consoles. Bathtubs and mirrors round out the range.
Created by Milan-based product
designer Marc Saddler, the Infinity
hydromassage bathtub line features
stainless steel micro jets installed along
the perimeter of the unit's inside cavity.
Its chromatherapy system is concealed
underwater, and its drain outlet and
overflow showcase no holes on the
tub's inner surface. The indoor-outdoor
range is manufactured in Italy by Gruppo
Treessee, then adapted to U.S. electrical/
plumbing standards by the bath brand's
Miami-based unit, which also serves as
the line's U.S. distributor. Suitable for
light commercial use.
4 PAMESA CERÁMICA
K-Stone takes visual cues from volcanic rocks. Part of
this Tile of Spain manufacturer's Koncept collection, the
porcelain surface's textured, stone-look patterns are
detailed with subtle veining and offered in a choice of five
colors: Magma, Desert, Grafito, Moka and Opalo (shown).
5 FIRECLAY TILE
An homage to Northern California's farming heritage,
the Agrarian collection references aerial photography of
the Aromas area's geometric crop formations and the
patchwork, quilt-like effect they portray. Including eight
newly launched patterns, the range of 8-in. square, handglazed tiles consists of a red clay body that incorporates a
minimum of 50 percent recycled content.
