New from Duravit - Onto

Duravit have introduced another stunning range, Duravit Onto, which has been created by the award-winning designer Matteo Thun.  We always expect something special when Duravit introduce new ranges, and when it is conjunction with a designer of the calibre of Matteo Thun our expectations are exceeded.

Look at how stunning the delicate floating appearance of the console is.

The feature of this incredible design is the deceptively fragile looking console unit which frames the basin with it's minimal lines and yet soft curved front which not only looks fabulous but is also very practical in terms of installation and ease of cleanliness.

The Onto bath is in keeping with the ethos of the design with the shape of the bath reflecting the whole concept and a choice of wooden panels that show the natural beauty of the wood.

The Onto collection is both practical and spectacular in both appearance and design, and suitable for a wide range of uses, both in hotels or private homes.  Onto offers impressive modern solutions for your bathroom.

  The basin and new vanity unit create a particularly attractive combination and the furniture washbasin offers impressively generous storage space with a delicate design, even in the smallest size. 

The feature design is reflected in the toilets, which are available in the popular wall-hung, or more traditional wall-hung and close-coupled.

Axor Bouroullec Basin Mixer

Feel Free to Compose
Axor Bouroullec is a collection that gives freedom to your individual ideas of composition. More than 70 products for the bathroom – from the mixer to the accessories, from the washbasin to the bathtub – give you the freedom to compose a solution that you feel is the right one just for you.

The individual elements of the mixers can easily be placed at diverse places all around (or even over) the washbasin. Just as you like it and just as it plays to your individual needs. The placement areas that are integrated in the wash basin give you different opportunities to do so. And they even give you enough space to place your private utensils.

French designers Ronan und Erwan Bouroullec let you decide how you want to use your products. “Feel Free to Compose” therefore is not only the motto of Axor Bouroullec – it is an invitation for you to design your most personal bathroom of all time.

Soak in Style are authorised Axor Hansgrohe dealers.
