Area Bed created by Alain Gilles for Magnitude is a novel bed concept that takes into account what a bed is traditionally used for: sleeping, but also the fact that today the bedroom is now also used as a bathroom, personal office, or extra room or living room…
The bed head can serve as room divider and room organizer to redefine the architecture of the room, but in some cases it can also wrap around the walls to create a cocoon-like-space.
The “Area” bed plays on asymmetry to bring a dynamic to something that is usually seen as rather static. It is fairly graphic thanks to its extra playful elements such as the small bedside table, “pocket table”, repositionable lamp and bench that organize the “area” where one sleeps. It is a comfortable and welcoming bed like all beds from Magnitude.
Venetian designer Luca Nichetto, introduced his first collection of sanitary featuring bathroom furniture and accessories. As we can see in the picture above, the new bathroom remodeling trends are the use of two vanities. His and hers vanities are popular in the modern world today as you get to have your own personal space. Adaptability and modularity are the terms that best describe the Affetto line of bathroom furniture.
Nichetto’s bathroom collection reinterprets the modernist principles of the 1950s who responded to the dizzying boom in the post-war construction of homes and the need to mass-produce furniture in which this resulted by definitively doing away with complex and boxy designs and introducing more sober and essential lines.
The Affetto line softens form and smoothes edges: the bathroom suites and sinks seem to be “enveloped” in ceramic. Affetto eliminates frills in favour of functional and pure lines.
The inspiration of this organic-shaped Spa comes from the mother of pearl. The uniqueness of this luxurious bathtub is in its shape and features. It allows a sensuous escape from stressful life, by stimulating all the five senses and soothing them.

Tokujin Yoshioka has produced a new tile called phenomenon for Italian ceramics manufacturer Mutina.
Tokujin has been intending to incorporate the natural phenomenon and the law of nature into the idea of design, and peruse the elements of sensation of human beings. Inspired by his own previous projects, Tokujin has pondered in designing ceramic tiles, which express the textures of the material derived from nature, which does not mean manipulating the appearance of nature, but creating a design, which stirs one’s heart and imagination and remains deep inside one’s memory.
This bathrooms, spa and air-conditioning created by Duravit AG won the red dot design award. Following a purist form language and designed to impart a strong sense of “warmth”, this sauna turns into an inviting space within a space, and thus clearly follows the demands of clarity, harmony and structure. Similar to the Indian tradition, this sauna too becomes an integrative part of everyday life.
The design concept is sophisticated to the last detail – there is nothing that disturbs the intended image of spiritual harmony. Free from directly visible technology, the sauna is positioned in the middle of a room; all units are hidden and mounted on a pull-out carrier. The control system, heater with ventilation unit and the evaporator are always accessible but never in view. The control concept too follows its Indian model of inspiration: in the same way as the age-old ceremony started by heating a stone in a fire and carrying it with a stag’s antler into a tent, the sauna session also starts with a “stone” – in the form of a hand-held remote control with a clearly laid-out display.
Ballerine bathtub by Gustaw Lange is a creative showering system that compactly combines a tub and standing shower. Drag the end of it upwards and it will spiral itself around you and reveal the shower head at the top. The bathtub stays as a cup where the water will run down. I like the lines of it, and it would fit perfectly into a house where design is at the center of things. Now all I have to do is make sure there are no windows in the bathroom…
While he is doing you a favour by keeping the water in your tub his head is stuck down in the drain the entire time. At least he has that nice tail to make it easy for you to pull him out when the need arises.
