The year was 2021. A deadly virus had broken out – now a pandemic – which forced hotel doors to shut while designers and architects sketched a new hotel design landscape. I’m not suggesting we need more drama, but it’s exciting nonetheless to see Bette add a new layer in the bathroom with its new matt black baths, writes editor Hamish Kilburn…
The bathroom is becoming more dramatic, with black and inky tones on furniture, tiles and painted surfaces helping to create contemporary and stylish spaces.
Eighteen Bette freestanding baths are now available in Ebony, a matt black colour to complement the use of darker tones in the bathroom. The baths, from the BetteLux, BetteStarlet and BetteArt collections, also include some which are perfect for smaller bathrooms, as they are designed to be positioned against a wall or into a corner.
Like all Bette baths, it is made from glazed titanium-steel, comes with a 30 year warranty and is 100 per cent recyclable. It is durable and easy to clean because the glass-hard surface makes it difficult for dirt and bacteria to adhere. It is also not affected by chemicals or even the naked flame or hot wax of a candle, which means that Bette’s baths in matt black are easy to keep looking their best. The surface is also UV-resistant, so the elegance of the matt black colour remains unaltered over the years.
