Having just launched, i.life offers simplicity with pure lines, and is about creating a serene bathroom where function and practicality meet flawless beauty. The collection was crafted in collaboration with Italian design studio Palomba Serafini Associati (PS+A) and enables users to create a bathroom they can enjoy day after day with all the pieces needed to support modern living, from basins and furniture units, to baths and toilets.
The collections have been designed to be mixed with solutions from other ranges through the Singular concept from Ideal Standard. Singular was specifically developed to streamline bathroom design and simplify the selection process, enabling architects, designers, retailers, tradespeople and end-users to create tailor-made spaces for every project.
“The i.life bathroom collection is a true example of design that creates a backdrop to good living; design that fosters a safe space for life and love to happen, no matter what size or shape your bathroom may be,” said Roberto Palomba, Ideal Standard, Chief Design Officer. “It’s a smart, versatile collection where design, comfort and hygiene come together beautifully and we can’t wait for our customers to experience it in their homes.”
The collection is made up of i.life A and i.life S, both of which are available now, having launched this month. i.life A is characterised by soft, rounded ceramics and accessible design, both practical and beautiful, and includes a selection of basins, toilets, bidets, baths, enclosures and furniture. The basins in i.life A come in four different sizes and there are two pedestal options, with both elements combining to create a sculpture-like piece in the bathroom, making them easy to pair with other products.
All the pieces benefit from Ideal Standard’s industry-leading engineering and technology. The toilets of both i.life A and S feature RimLS+ hygiene technology to ensure the entire bowl is cleaned with every flush, while water-efficient functionality helps to support a sustainable lifestyle. The collection offers wall-hung and floor standing options for its bidets and toilets, with the toilets all benefiting from a soft-close seat for smooth operation.
i.life S has a contemporary, space-saving, soft-square design, featuring a variety of ceramics and furniture – including basins, WCs, shower trays and vanity units. Designed to complement smaller spaces, this range is perfect for ensuites and under-the-stairs bathrooms. The vanity units and washbasin units offer further space-saving options, helping keep rooms neat and tidy while complementing the aesthetic look. A number of storage sizes, colours and handle options are available, making it simple to create the ideal bathroom for each individual project.
The ceramics and furniture of i.life A and S are complemented by bathing, enclosure and shower tray options which can again enhance smaller bathroom spaces. The design-led baths feature a contemporary, curved style to match the wider range and are made of Idealform and Idealform plus ceramics, to ensure durability and heat retention. Multiple sizes of single and double-ended baths are available, with the water-saving options on offer restricting water use to just 139 litres, without affecting the internal size of the bath. This makes the bathing products in this range a truly versatile choice.
The new i.life 8mm semi–framed enclosure range embodies quality and performance. At two meters tall, the enclosures feature slim, polished, aluminium profiles and long solid handles, for an elegant, modern aesthetic. The products are also time-savers, with features like ‘IdealClean’ glass treatment and click and clean which can reduce cleaning time, while soft-close slider options add an extra premium touch. A wide choice of models is on offer, including; pivot, infold, one & two door sliders, corner entry, quadrant and offset quadrants, all in various sizes.
Completing the i.life shower solutions, the Ultra Flat S shower trays are just 30mm thick, coming in over 25 different sizes and four matt finishes to create a cohesive look in any bathroom. The trays feature a robust gel coating that gives a textured stone finish and vital anti-slip properties – with so many options available, i.life is a truly versatile selection.
