With the size of the average British bathroom measuring around a modest four square metres, RAK-Petit, a designer collection from RAK Ceramics, solves the problem of creating luxury results in compact spaces. Created in collaboration with award-winning Italian designer Maurizio Scutellà, RAK-Petit is a comprehensive collection of sanitaryware and brassware, designed specifically with small bathrooms in mind, from en-suites to small family bathrooms.

Designer Scutellà is an industrial designer, focused on and sensitive towards the entire range of design and artistic currents of the past century, he designs products that are technical and artistic at the same time. Taking both the ‘Form Follows Function’ and the ‘Function Follows Form’ approach to his work, the minimal shapes and modest dimensions of the RAK-Petit washbasins are perfect for small spaces that are also big on style.

The collection includes deep-based washbasins that can be installed alone or combined with RAK-Joy vanity units in the domestic bathrooms, as well as freestanding washbasins that are statement pieces. The freestanding ceramic washbasins in striking Alpine White measure an elegant 360mm wide x 900mm tall.

The wall-hung washbasins in the collection are equally as stylish, again with round or square basin shapes combined with a ceramic ledge, providing an easy to wipe clean surface for soaps and toothbrushes. Measurements for the wall-hung basins are 765mm x 360mm.

The collection has been extended in 2023 to include even more choice. Straight-line geometry is having a moment in bathroom design, a trend embodied by the latest additions to the collection, now available in square, creating a sense of orderliness and simplicity with their straight lines.
