Warmth in the bathroom
The finer sides of the cold season can be enjoyed in the Cape Cod bathtub from Duravit: immerse yourself in a full bathtub to loosen and relax tight, cold muscles. Designer Philippe Starck consciously placed well-being at the heart of his creation. This can be seen in the gently curved headrest and the choice of material. The bathtub is made from DuraSolid®, a new material with an impressively warm feel and high-quality matt appearance.
Take time out to enjoy the Happy D.2 with its generous interior that offers plenty of space for a relaxing bath. An ergonomic backrest that affords an optimum reclining position provides a feeling of enhanced wellbeing.
The Darling New bathtubs impress with their comfortable, broader bathtub rim of 11.5 cm, which serves as a comfortable seat or support when getting into the bath. A further positive aspect is the LED lighting, which softly shimmers below the all-round bathtub rim and creates a pleasant atmosphere.
Hygge in the bathroom
The icing on the cake of any dull, grey winter day is to let some “hygge” – the Danish art of homeliness – into the bathroom. This ‘anti-doldrums formula’ practised by the Danes is firmly anchored in their culture and stands for cosiness and security. All it takes is a few little tweaks and tricks to make our own living area even more intimate and inviting: typical Scandinavian beige and grey tones, that harmonize with one another and supplemented with simple furnishings such as towels, blankets or bathroom accessories, lend a bathroom the hygge factor and turn it into a place of retreat. Ideal companions for the bathtubs are furniture and accessories that exude a sense of nature and warmth through their color and shape. These include untreated woods and authentic decorations in subdued tones.
A further ingredient for a hygge-infused bathroom is relaxing light.
Light in the bathroom
Alongside natural candlelight, dimmable mirrors and mirror cabinets are ideal as lighting in the bathroom that can be adapted to any requirement. They create a lighting accent in the room and bathe the washing area in a pleasant light.
The latest innovation in the field of mirror lighting is the stepless adjustment of the light color. This enables a lighting mood from warm candlelight through to cool cosmetic light (2,700 to 6,500 Kelvin), which can be stored and recalled via a memory function. The mirrors from the XSquare range include this function as standard.
XSquare also stands out thanks to its ambient light mode: pleasant, indirect light shines up and down simultaneously. In addition to the emotional impact and special atmosphere, indirect light also ensures greater brightness in the field of vision thanks to the ceiling deflection.
