With the move towards biophilic design constantly looking at ways of referencing nature in, the new matte grey colourway in the Villeroy & Boch palette evokes images of natural materials such as stone and rocks, creating a relaxing atmosphere for daily bathing routines. Created by the designer Christian Haas, the Theano freestanding bath in the new matte grey almost appears to have been carved from stone. The sculptural statement piece breaks away from the traditional white look in bathrooms with a monumental effect inspired by nature.
Designer Haas, recently listed among the 100 most important designers for 2022 by AD magazine, has worked successfully with Villeroy & Boch’s Bathroom and Wellness and Dining & Lifestyle divisions for many years. With his newest addition to the Theano bathroom portfolio, the impressive freestanding monolith bathtub combines balanced proportions with geometric contours in a precise and delicate design. Despite its narrow edges and thin walls, the bath is extremely strong. This is thanks to the high-quality Quaryl material, a blend of tried-and-tested sanitary acrylic and the mineral quartz.
Freely positionable and sitting directly on the floor, the Theano bath makes a strong statement with its understated beauty in a strikingly streamlined design that adds an elegant and natural touch to the warm matte grey, making it a perfect choice for extravagant bathrooms in which minimalist elements create a natural, urban homely feel.
