Pininfarina Designs a Suite of Bathroom Products

Iconic design firm known for Italian sports cars teams with bathroom furnishings maker Ronbow…

Northern California-based luxury bathroom furnishings manufacturer Ronbow® debuts the VENTO collection, a new and innovative bathroom suite series comprised of vanities, sinktops, cabinets and Bluetooth® integrated LED mirrors designed by iconic Italian brand Pininfarina. VENTO is part of the Signature Series by Ronbow, a diverse collection of extreme quality and refined luxury with globally trendsetting bathroom products designed by the world’s premier artists, designers and design firms. The Signature Series brings together 11 new collections of bath furnishings from nine top European designers under one single brand.

A 360° design house of international repute and a world-renowned symbol of Italian style, Pininfarina is arguably the most recognized brand in Italian sports car design, with a logo that boasts instant name recognition. They have also designed in the fields of electronics, furniture/home equipment, machinery, consumer products, kitchen cabinetry, graphic design, architecture and interiors. By working with Ronbow, Pininfarina continues its tradition of partnering with the most prestigious firms and brands, transferring the values of elegance, purity and innovation that have historically characterized the brand for over 85 years.

“We are thrilled to unite with the legendary design firm Pininfarina for our new VENTO collection,” said Stuart Stanton, executive vice president at Ronbow. “They have translated their unmistakable identity into a variety of highly stylized and functional bathroom pieces for the design-minded consumer. This partnership is a natural next step in Ronbow’s brand evolution.”

The VENTO collection, or “wind” collection in Italian, emphasizes an elegant, sleek and innovative sinktop design inspired by perfectly smooth snowdrifts carved by fast, strong winds. Unmistakably, the designer’s mastery of Italian grace, sex appeal and flair are all conveyed in the sinktop. Offered in white ceramic or matte white solid surface, these smooth sinktops possess an integrated soap dish that almost appears as an island shelf, extra levels of work space and an integrated flush-with-sink bottom drain cover for seamless design.

The sinktops are supported by the VENTO vanity base cabinet, and the series includes clean-lined horizontal and vertical wall cabinets and an LED mirror and mirror cabinet – to create the total Pininfarina bathroom aesthetic. The vanity and horizontal storage cabinets are offered in two sizes, 30″ and 42″, in two stunning finishes: luxurious, metallic Graphite and sophisticated, textured Chene wood. Each VENTO cabinet includes two German manufactured, full-extension, soft-close drawers with finger pulls, an acrylic door organizer and woven drawer liners. The 40″ vertical wall cabinets include a soft-close door with finger pull, three fixed wood shelves and a door which opens right to left but can be inverted to open the opposite way.

Rounding out the collection are innovative LED mirrors, finished in satin aluminum, which integrate Bluetooth® technology and speakers. The 30″ LED mirror includes a motion-activated LED light and accent mood lighting on top and bottom, and the 42″ LED mirror cabinet includes an additional digital clock display; lift-up, soft-close door; fixed glass shelf; two mirrors (door exterior, back interior); and accent mood lighting on the left, right and bottom.
