Inspired by Scandinavian minimalist style, Stephen Royce has designed the beautiful B4 Vanity. It’s an integrated custom bowl unit mixed with a Victorian Ash Ply Vanity and pays close attention to ratios and proportion.

4 | Kartell by Laufen Sanitaryware by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba



Kartell by Laufen was the vision of Italian designer couple Ludovica+Roberto Palomba. Using LAUFEN’s revolutionary new ceramic material, SaphirKeramik, the couple have designed an exciting new range of basins. Along with the wider range of toilets, a freestanding bath, a freestanding basin, vanity units and cabinets, and bathroom accessories, they are a tribute to innovation and iconicity that we have come to expect from the LAUFEN and Kartell brands.
