INOX Collection of Bathroom Fixtures from Blu Bathworks
Bringing a minimalist approach to their already comprehensive line of modern bath-ware products, Canadian bath-ware design-house & manufacturer Blu Bathworks leaves ornament by the wayside in the introduction of the INOX Series. Designed by founder Michael Gottschalk, the Italian-made basin spouts, tub fillers, and shower stations are iconic in their slim bodies, innovative installation, and simple, ornament-less designs. Designed with the luxury bathroom in mind, INOX is available not only in standard single lever faucets, wall mount spouts, and mixers, but also as a Swan-neck deck mount basin spout (perfect for a bit of drama), floor mount tub filler spout, and a modern thermostatic shower mixer. INOX is available in Satin and Brushed Chrome finishes.
Ventless Heat-Pump Compact Dryer from Blomberg Appliances
In the marketplace for appliances that combine both innovation and contemporary aesthetics there exists a race of sorts. The Americans and the Germans, for the last century, have been in a tight race, both countries developing better, more technologically advanced, and aesthetically pleasing appliance options for consumers. Blomberg, the 3rd largest appliance manufacturer in Europe, added to the list of German "wins" with the introduction during the 2015 Architectural Digest Home Design Show their new Ventless Compact Energy-Efficient Dryer. Using 50 percent less energy and 40 percent lower circulating air temperature than similarly sized air-vented dryers, Blomberg's Ventless Heat Pump Dryer features a ventless heat pump and a compact 24" width design making it perfect for those places where exterior ventilation is not an option but also for integrating a dryer into any space in the home - from the kitchen to the master bedroom closet.
Taper Collection of Bathroom Faucets by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) for Kallista
