The aesthetics of the bathroom are often compromised by practical considerations: it may be the only room in the home to miss out on the full design treatment. But beyond the taps and tiles, the bathroom is a place for pamper and retreat—a place to kick-start your day and to melt your worries away at the end of one.

ArmaniRoca_3The new Armani/Roca collection celebrates this with a range of products that transforms the bathroom into a delicate balance between elegance and functionality.

Staying true to the design philosophy of Giorgio Armani, Armani/Roca products are at once timeless and contemporary, and, as the maestro himself says, are "durable and conceived ignoring temporary trends".

The brand new Baia collection – the latest in collaboration with the Italian fashion powerhouse – combines sleek, ergonomic designs with high-tech credentials. At first glance the range looks retro, with brass elements and harmonious, fluid forms that make it suitable for a variety of spaces.

The range features a selection of over-countertop and countertop washbasins that come in shades of matte gold and dark metal, exuding sophistication. Each basin is seamlessly extended by a pedestal, while a metal towel rail in various finishes can be added to make full use of a space.

Complementing the pieces is a new line of faucets for basins, bidets, showers and baths in three finishes: greige, brushed steel and chrome. Despite their classic look, each piece is equipped with state-of-the-art thermostatic technology that delivers a pleasant and efficient user experience.

A key feature of the collection is a freestanding bathtub. Its soft, sinuous form – one that can effortlessly take centre stage in any bathroom – is achieved with special attention to ergonomics and comfort, with optional metal handles to add both functional and decorative detail. For the space-conscious there is the option of a shower tray, which can be custom made to sizes of up to 2,000 x 1,000mm; it comes in extra-fine resin, finished off with a choice of textures and finishes.

Another highlight is a multi-functional piece with a countertop washbasin, integrated metal towel rail and lateral cabinets. Available in both off-white lacquered wood and greige oak-veneered wood, it is a practical and convenient solution for small spaces without compromising luxury.

A selection of accessories such as towel racks, wall lamps and a round, metal wall mirror – all embodying the same design ethos – completes the collection.

At the recent Perspective A&D Trophy Awards 2019, the range bagged an Excellence Award for Product Design in the Bathroom Product category. It is available in new display areas at both COLOURLIVING and RocaConcepts stores in Hong Kong.
