Design Across the Ocean
Salone del Mobile speaks to upcoming
global trends in the kitchen and bath

BY ERINN LOUCKS

E

VERY YEAR, DESIGN COMPANIES THROUGHOUT EUROPE congregate on the
fairgrounds in Milan for Salone del Mobile, the international home design
show.This year also featured the biennial kitchen show, EuroCucina, and the
International Bathroom Exhibition - Salone Internazionale del Bagno - as
well as EuroCucina - FTK, a special exhibit just for technology in the kitchen.
KBB joined the more than 300,000 visitors scouring more than 2,000 exhibits
for the latest in kitchen and bath trends and products from Europe.

THE OASIS BATHROOM

The bathroom has become much more than a utilitarian space, and people are looking for more ways
to make it somewhere in which to spend quality time. This has been a slowly growing idea for a while
everywhere, but the commonality of smaller spaces in Europe calls for more functionality and creativity
to make the bath spa-like.
ŽCustomization is King. With a small space, having the ability to enhance every inch so it fits the client
perfectly is essential. The Azure shower system from 1 Inda caters to this with a fully customizable
look across the bathroom, while 2 Fiandre's AQUA MAXIMUM offers a collection of personalized shower trays and washbasins that can be made in standard-size variants. 3 Axor allows for
customization in its Signature Line of faucets, including personalized inscriptions.
ŽGetting Thinner. Slimmer cabinet doors and fixtures save square footage and give the illusion of more space.
4 FIMA Carlo Frattini's MAST features these thin lines in both the spout and the body of the faucet,
while the base is integrated and the outline of the lever is minimal.The Metallo 61 Quartz Washbasin
from 5 Victoria + Albert is ideal for a small space with its thin legs that reference traditional bathroom
pipework. Sinks - both above and undercounter models - are also boasting smaller sizes without losing
aesthetics or functionality, like the Tino and Tina washbasins from 6 Ceramica CIELO.
ŽChanneling Nature. Making nature a part of daily life has definite health benefits, and shower manufacturers are seeking even higher goals when it comes to referencing the environment. Aquamoon from
7 Dornbracht is intended to make the user feel like they are standing beneath a tranquil waterfall.
Azimut from 8 antoniolupi can be applied to the wall or the ceiling for a rainshower effect, and a
hinge allows the user to rotate and direct the jet more than 180 degrees for a relaxing, nature-inspired
experience. 9 Hansgrohe's PowderRain spray technology also echoes the feel of a rain shower 
with a sumptuous yet eco-efficient, micro-fine mist.
