For those of us who seek something a little different for our bathrooms, ArtCeram have stepped up with a collection to blow our minds. In fact, these pieces might look more at home in the ceramics section of a department store than in your local bathroom fitters showroom. Unique lines and bold designs, along with everyday household objects, have been scaled up to find new homes in our bathrooms, cloakrooms, and ensuites.
A basin resembling a huge coffee cup is charmingly suited for purpose, with an integrated towel rail at the 'handle'; this piece speaks for itself, so team with simple surroundings and a minimalist wall mounted faucet. The 'cow' collection gives us a herd of four legged friends for our wash space, the quirky form is available in striking black, or true farm yard lovers can go the whole hog with zany cow print.
If you're not feeling so eccentric, alternative wow factor can be achieved with strong geometric shapes, or organic, wall hugging forms. Clean, seamless vessels become contemporary works of art when stark white ceramic is adorned with striking black line work and pattern, and the simplicity of a single sheet of curved glass floating beneath a waterfall faucet is clearly stunning.

Based on the Casa Codina house by A4 Estudio, the Winter House visualized by Black Haus is depicted in a perfect snow covered dream. The landscape was designed to create maximum contrast between the icy outdoors and the warmth of the lit interior. With the cognitive sensation of tingling noses and fingertips ignited, as our eyes reached the warm light box of color amidst the bleak landscape, we'd say they achieved their objective.
The actual Casa Codina house is situated in the city of Mendoza, Argentina, where the inhabitants enjoy a typically continental climate. In fact, the Latin American house was designed to utilize good weather conditions for a greener way of living. The courtyard that forms the centre of the structure was designed for environmental benefits in the interior spaces of the house that surround the garden perimeter. With all of this in mind, placing a home of this style onto a stark snowy landscape somehow just works. Imagine turning those lights down low, warming your hands around a mug of cocoa and watching the snow fall… bliss.
