The bathroom as a real architecture. "For some time we had encountered an increasingly strong need on the part of design studios specialized in hotel contract, to have integrated solutions within the bathroom of large hotels: shower enclosures matched and coordinated with the doors of the sanitary ware other technical areas. At the same time, during a pleasant chat, the designer Sergio Castiglia expressed his desire to propose an architectural solution precisely to meet this need ".
Elia Vismara, ceo and marketing director of Vismaravetro, describes the birth of Suite, the system of glass and aluminum walls conceived to delimit the shower area and the sanitary area in a single solution, both in the hotel sector and in the domestic one.
To understand the genesis of this system, the latest in a long history of excellence, we need to go back to the DNA of a leading brand since 1947 in the market of tempered glass shower enclosures, with standard products that are flexible and customized at the same time. Just Suite enhances Vismaravetro's ability to interpret the most diverse design needs. In the words of Elia Vismara, Suite is a system "expression of our know-how in the design of shower elements, with all the difficulties of water tightness and resistance of materials in a wet environment". A system born with the design and design sensitivity of Castiglia Associati, a team with great experience in defining doors and furnishing systems.
Suite modules are characterized by clear and essential lines, ideal for generating a free and creative distribution of spaces, according to needs. "The very fact of being a watertight system of glass and metal walls makes Suite a unique product in the panorama of the most exclusive systems," says the CEO. “However, with careful research and design, we went further.
From the dimensional point of view, the system is made to measure. Reaching up to 270 cm in height, the glass used can be either 10 mm thick monolithic glass or 4 + 4 laminated safety glass, giving Suite incredible versatility. Furthermore, the new configurations provide that the full-height door can be hinged directly to the wall, creating further visual lightness and bringing the system closer and closer to a real domestic architecture ”.
There are other features that make Suite a practical as well as elegant system: it does not require a ceiling anchoring, which allows you not to have to design every single element to the millimeter in order to accommodate the normal undulations of the ceiling. A system of profiles also allows the subsequent closure if necessary for those who do not want to see the empty space above the upper frame. Furthermore, the doors can be opened 180 ° outwards, thus allowing the door to be completely folded onto the fixed surface without obstructions.
The system provides the opportunity to create tailored solutions. There are two types of handles. The standard round one is in soft touch plastic with a central aluminum insert in the same finish as the frame. The optional handle, on the other hand, is linear and made from extruded aluminum. Fixed to the door frame, it recalls the same finish as the structure.
