Let us take the sculptural quality of the fitting as the starting point for bathroom architecture. The result is an island in the room which places all of the functions and zones of the bathroom right at the very centre. A form of architecture which therefore becomes a solitary unit in itself. Upon closer inspection of the exposed design, it becomes clear that the high-gloss surfaces of the fittings constantly reflect the island’s individual laguna-like water zones. It seems as though the fitting reflects the idea behind the architecture just as much as the architecture reflects the idea behind the fitting.
Sieger Design’s Supernova line for Dornbracht has exploded onto the bathroom scene, with an impressive catalog of fittings and accessories for the usual essentials: shower, tub, sink, and bidet. When you take options such as cube handles or levers into account, there are 60 possible offerings, all available in polished chrome, platinum plate, or “champagne” gold plate. A sheet of water pours from the broad rectangular mouth of the waterfall tub filler, while widespread precipitation falls from the RainSky showerhead. Wall-mounted items include a hand shower and the SideRain horizontal body spray. Faucets come wall-mounted or deck-mounted. Towel bars, hooks, and soap dishes figure among the accoutrements, too.
