Unveiled with an immersive installation at Milan Design Week 2018, GROHE launched the Atrio Collection
Launched with 35 taps which form the Atrio Collection and sharing one unified look of elegance and precision, Atrio is symbolic of a new era of design that challenges conventions in order to create something truly iconic. The fundamental, consistent design is inspired by GROHE’s original best-selling ATRIO collection incepted more than 10 years ago. Atrio’s sleek, cylindrical design gives a timeless elegance, enhanced by a form that measures the same diameter from the base to the top. This design feat is replicated across all taps within the collection. This is a first for tap design which required technical experts to achieve new levels of engineering perfection, to ensure both form and function worked in harmony. The spout itself curves in the perfect arc of a semi-circle.
From the bold cross handles with subtle ‘H’ and ‘C’ markings, to the slim cylindrical shape made possible by GROHE’s super-slim cartridge technology, the considered details add up to an object with a reassuring air of design permanence. The Atrio collection delivers versatility in its design, with a number of different sizes and configurations for bathroom basins, baths and showers. The Atrio range is available in three beautiful finishes; Chrome, Supersteel and Brushed Hard Graphite.
Heralding new heights for Brighton’s coastline, the new British Airways i360 observation tower is designed by Marks Barfield Architects, who also designed the iconic London Eye. Working with the architects, Inside Out provided a full furnishing solution for the attraction’s dedicated food and beverage offering, the West Beach Bar & Kitchen. Inspiration for the venue has been derived from the vibrant local culture of Brighton and Hove, channelling an eclectic beach hut vibe which includes art from local artists.
From Inside Out’s UK workshop, existing full circle booths have been reupholstered in ocean-hued blue fluting and refitted with weathered-style limed oak wooden panels, which are reminiscent of the seaside. Bespoke marshmallow stools also handmade in the UK feature in an array of red, purple and yellow, dotted around the bar with Cocktail lounges and sofas in matching fabrics to the local art on the walls. From the main dining room, Thea and Karavan chairs mingle with Italian made Jeeves armchairs in a mixture of natural oak and white-washed wood stains. Complementing the dining chairs, the solid wood table tops continue the weathered look with limed oak finished table tops upon black metal bases.

The Carmen bathroom collection is synonymous with a vintage style that can be appreciated by generations to come. Its soft, classic lines give the entire ensemble character and poise – from vitreous china to bathroom furniture, from taps and brassware to accessories, every detail tells a captivating story. Carefully designed and refined rectangular shapes are used to give distinction and definition. This can be admired in the basins (choose from wall-hung, pedestal, in countertop or vanity options in a variety of sizes) as well as the style of the lower part of the WC toilet.
Committing to a vintage style bathroom doesn’t have to mean compromising on functionality! The new Carmen collection comes with a multitude of storage possibilities. Should you need additional space, add the elegant Carmen column unit, where glass doors add grace and definition. The height-adjustable shelves also make a statement, along with the unit’s LED interior lighting. All the pieces in the Carmen vintage style bathroom collection are made from Roca’s exclusive high quality vitreous china. Its robust enamel provides great durability and resistance and a brilliant shine and white colour that will remain flawless through the passage of time.
Saligo Design creates original, vintage-style, toughened antique mirror glass panels for a range of surfaces and sectors
Hand-silvered antique mirror glass, made in-house by Saligo Design will enhance your interiors with an authentic, vintage-esque aesthetic. The vintage style of antique mirror is a distinctive product and, being hand-finished in their workshop, is even more versatile. Hand finishing the mirror allows them to control the level of antiquing, creating lighter or heavier levels of distressing overall, and more specifically, when required, around the edges. Vintage comes in a number of different glass types. For the authentic looking drama of antique mirror, they use hand-silvered clear float glass. With bronze and grey glass, they create reflections which are subdued behind a warm or neutral tint; this finish has less contrast and is elegant and understated.
