FLOAT­ING ON AIR

Homestyle New Zealand - - LIV­ING -

Ger­man de­sign­ers Tesser­aux + Part­ner cre­ated this look for bath­roomware com­pany Bette, plac­ing its enam­elled ti­ta­nium steel bath­tubs and basins within so­phis­ti­cated new frames. The de­sign em­pha­sises the or­ganic shape of each piece; they ap­pear weight­less and float­ing within the struc­tures. Their pre­cise cor­ners form a flush fin­ish against the frames, of­fer­ing a mar­vel­lous min­i­mal­ism.

GOOD FORMS The key el­e­ments of this room with a view are func­tional yet sculp­tural struc­tures, more like free­stand­ing pieces of fur­ni­ture than your av­er­age bath­room fix­tures. The pow­der-coated steel frames can be coloured to con­trast with the var­i­ous tones of the baths and basins.
