The Morar is the latest addition to our range of freestanding cast iron baths, a modern re-working of the classic slipper bath, which gained popularity during the late nineteenth century. The Morar was designed by Victoria Richmond of the KLC School of Design, as part of a student challenge.
Having a preview to this exhibition thanks to House &
Gardens, it was a great way to start the week.
8am meeting for coffee and great introduction I then allowed
myself time to get lost in the exhibition:
The aim of this – Architecture reimagined… buildings upside
down, light from the base upwards… very cool.
Kengo Kuma – combining bamboo shoots with light and even
smell… loved this, an organic growing in the space, really beautiful and hard
Grafton Architects – light vs darkness… concrete walls
Pexo von Ellrichshausen – pine columns leading to a
different ‘tree’ house, kids will love climbing those columns.
Diebedo Francis Kere – ok, remember the little plastic
straws, I had a game building with those when I was little, like the dozers you
can actually add to this space.
Eduardo Souto De Moura – concrete arches cast in the space.
Pretty amazing really.
Li Xiaodong – this was my personal favourite, wood over
light representing snow, a maze, darkness and quite was really something
especially when there were different elements at every corner, coming into a
dark mirrored space with stones as the landscape –awesome.
Whilst an an-white bathroom is a classic and timeless look, a bathroom with character and unusual textures is much more stylish. Opt for a concrete wall or matt tiles in soft , natural colours such as pale grey, off-blacks and stoney hues.
Handpicked by designer Sophie Conran, our new paint collection features ocean-themed colours, from uplifting brights to subtle neutrals, inspired by summer beach holidays and childhood memories, that give a comprehensive choice to add character and charm to our splendid baths.
Arranged as four coordinating colour groups, all with seaside themes, the shade card ranges from vivid brights to gentle neutrals. Fresh and contemporary, they can be used on any of our cast iron baths in both matte and gloss finishes.
