Design Seen: Sleek Squad

<< Back to Home & Style, July 2013

1} Devon & Devon Jetset
One of nearly a dozen new bathroom items recently introduced by the Italian company Devon & Devon, the Art Deco–inspired Jetset vanity ($10,590 to $14,329) features a granite or marble top and glossy lacquered-wood doors. The doors open and close via push buttons and are available in eight colors, including pure white (shown), blue violet, and antiqued aluminum leaf. 718.649.5882, www.devon-devon.com

2} Palomba Collection for Laufen
A freestanding tub, coordinating tables and stools, and freestanding and countertop washbasins (not shown) are among the newest pieces ($450 to $19,000) from Ludovica and Roberto Palomba for Laufen. With this series—the husband-and-wife design team’s third partnership with the Swiss bathroom manufacturer since 2005—the duo went not with the rigid geometric shapes of their past lines, but rather with soft, nature-influenced silhouettes. 866.696.2493, www.laufen.com

3} Sir/A by Alessandro La Spada for Antolini
The new Sir/A collection is the result of a recent collaboration between the designer Alessandro La Spada and Antolini CEO Alberto Antolini. A stunning array of handcrafted limited editions, including a circular tub, washbasins, and a 78-inch-high fireplace made from honed marble, compose the line, which at press time had not been priced. +39.045.683.6611, www.antolini.com

4} Duravit DuraStyle
An extra-flat seat and a rimless wall-mounting system are the standout attributes of the latest toilet (starting at $365) from the German brand Duravit’s DuraStyle collection. Designed for the company by Matteo Thun & Partners, the toilet also fits with the brand’s SensoWash bidet-style toilet seat. 212.686.0033, www.duravit.us

5} Rohl Jörger Turn
Available as a single-hole lavatory faucet ($2,769) or a four-hole tub filler (shown, $5,620), the Rohl Jörger collection’s new Turn fixtures feature a spiral design that draws its inspiration from Dubai’s Infinity Tower. 800.777.9762, www.rohlhome.com
