Dekton

Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham of multidisciplinary studio Patternity have teamed up with Dekton to produce three new surfaces that marry the Spanish brand’s innovative technology with the duo’s research-driven design philosophy. ‘We were interested in the idea of interpreting different forms of movement into solid surfaces,’ says Murray. The result is the ‘Liquid’ collection, a celebration of nature that translates pattern and texture from water, shells and charred wood into Dekton’s ultra-durable scratch- and heat-resistant materials. £400 per square metre, dekton.co.uk

Ext-t

You won’t find many washbasins that reference the works of a pop-culture icon, but Ex.t is renowned for an experimental approach to bathroom design. Created by Italian architectural practice Marcante-Testa, the ‘Frieze’ collection takes inspiration from Roy Lichtenstein’s 1970s ‘Entablature’ prints, which depict classical friezes in his signature punchy style. The series comprises a system of sinks and accessories (from mirrors to towel hooks) that can be layered to create unique combinations. Basins from approx £882, ex-t.com

Duravit

Stark white sanitaryware can often make bathrooms feel uninviting, yet it remains the default as alternatives are few and far between. Duravit’s new ‘Off White’ colour palette aims to make spaces more welcoming by offering a mix of gentle beige and white shades across some of its most popular designs, including the ‘Happy D.2 Plus’ series (pictured), allowing customers to create a softer, more soothing aesthetic. From £251 for a tap to £4,187 for a double vanity unit, duravit.co.uk

5 John Pawson-designed taps for Cocoon

CP Hart

‘We designed the spout for my own house 20 years ago – not exactly like this, but similar.’ says architect and designer John Pawson. Built upon the proportions of the golden ratio (a mathematical equation found in nature), his series includes bath, basin and shower faucets. All reflect his love of detail – the spout’s diameter, for example, is the same width as the mixer handle, the latter taking months of development to hide its mechanism from view. Such precision is perhaps not perceptible at first sight, but it means nothing detracts from the simplicity of the pieces. From £500 for a wall-mounted basin mixer, exclusively at C.P. Hart, cphart.co.uk

6 ‘Brace’ wall light by Bert Frank

Now the brand has launched a tweaked, more eco-friendly design based on the original, ‘Spoon M’. Thanks to the latest in manufacturing technologies, the new version is less wasteful with thinner edges and is made from Cristalplant, a material composed of bio-based resin and minerals.
