From pink and mint bathroom fixtures to ocean blue shower trays, the colorful bathroom is on show at Bologna Fiere

Get ready for a dive into color. Why the bathroom on display at Cersaie 2023, from 25 on September 29th at Bologna Fiere, it is a vibrant and seductive chromatic explosion.

From delicate pinks, mauve and mint to intense and reassuring ocean blues, forest greens and pine, from matt finishes to brilliant enamels, the bathroom is tinged with trendy palettes. Nothing is left to chance, and even the most technical elements, such as hinges and handles, wear precious finishes, such as gold, platinum, brass and copper.

“From an outcast place, in the last two decades the bathroom has become a refined space, to be customized with coordinated solutions, designed by architects and produced by the best companies”, says Piero Lissoni .

Every element is rethought: the showers, which were previously 70x70 centimeter ceramic tiles, are transformed into realms of wellness, with large glass boxes, large surfaces, flush-mounted floors.

The architectural language changes and consequently the design of bathroom solutions evolves and becomes sophisticated. The washbasins, once anonymous, are now sculptures, with complex shapes and a resistance that was unthinkable in the past. With tap companies we are trying to use less and less water in a better way, we have made siphons more functional, efficient and invisible, and lights are no longer lamps casual, but designed to illuminate the bathroom”.

From a purely functional service room, the bathroom is transformed into a coordinated and coherent project, an environment to be experienced and displayed, where you can indulge in time for yourself, for the care of your body and mind. The place where everything begins, starting with the regenerating shower in the morning, surrounded by beauty and colour.

Lunaris by Alice Ceramica

Hall. 21, stand A15-B10

“The charm and mystery of the passage of time between waxing and full moons gave shape to my creative intuition”. Thus, Manuel Di Giacobbe, art director of Alice Ceramica, talks about Lunaris, the collection that is inspired by the enigmatic beauty of the Moon.

A family composed of ceramic washbasins, stainless steel structures and a circular mirror, accompanied by two "satellites" of 20 centimeters in diameter that move along the upper and lower crescent of the mirror, with the possibility of get closer to each other, on one side the LED light, on the other the concave zoom mirror ideal for make-up.

The peculiarity of the sink is the sinuous semicircular basin which is inscribed in the support surface in the shape of a parallelepiped with beveled edges. Many colors and finishes, from matt white, black, pink and mauve, to glossy myrtle, pine and honey, up to the Materia decal and the precious platinum and gold metallic finishes.

From the neutral tones of milk and charcoal to the new nuances of grape and mint, the Flaminia collection is an exploration of rich colors and full tones to reinvent the bathroom, transforming it into the room protagonist of the house, no longer an environment to be hidden, but to be shown with a pinch of pride.

The plus: the drainage grates are designed to better manage the flow of water, with holes that recall ancestral Neolithic circles, Moorish designs and drops of water.

Vis of Axa

Hall. 21, stand A89-B86

The opposite of everything. Why Vis, imagined by Giancarlo Angelelli for Axa, the group's brand Colavene, overturns the way of designing and producing washbasins. The shape is created as an undercut, with an organic basin that starts from being high and rounded and widens to gradually take on an ogival shape with a lower edge.

Unlike what happens with traditional washbasins, each example of Vis is modeled during the production phase by gradually removing the plaster plugs that support the walls, until the particular profile that characterizes the longitudinal section is generated and transversal.
