Sottini's new design-led collection defined by craft and creativity
Sottini relaunched at 100% Design this week with a confident and elegant collection of new design-led bathroom products that are based on a foundation of quality and innovation.
The company has collaborated with internationally-renowned and award-winning product designers from around the world to realise the innovative new collection of bathroom products.
Each piece has been developed individually with high design specifications and precision engineering, ensuring each basin, bath and WC is a unique piece: a work of art and a design statement.
The collection includes a series of elegantly-crafted individual items. Rather than being defined by product ranges, Sottini says it has created groupings of inspirational products that can be curated in a multitude of combinations. The new Sottini vision invites customers to simply imagine their own unique bathroom space.
While the products aren't related or presented in prescriptive collections, Sottini has identified four common creative themes that connect products by their essential stylistic character: Precision Lines, Minimal Elegance, Organic Forms and Crafted Creativity. The products in each category have been designed to work in harmony with each other, enabling customers to design their perfect bathroom and to form an emotional connection with their surroundings.
* Precision Lines: A collection of products defined by a precise and pure approach to design, giving a seamless and effortless look. Square lines, clean angles and pure shapes give complete confidence through boldness of form.
* Minimal Elegance: Sottini has developed a collection of products defined by their simplicity, revealing the essence of creative vision, quality of materials and perfect functionality. Design is pared back to simple balanced forms to achieve understated elegance.
* Organic Forms: Inspired by the natural world, this collection of products demonstrates symmetry, geometry and purity as well as the exquisite, the sensual and the tactile.
* Crafted Creativity: Imaginative, inspired and unconventional, this collection is playful with form to create unique pieces while never compromising on function.
Over 300 new products are being unveiled this month and Sottini will continue to expand and introduce products from new designers to ensure the collection constantly innovates and evolves, while retaining an uncompromising attitude to quality and the artistry of craft.
Designed to support Sottini products, Ippari is a modular furniture system, and the extensive range includes consoles, basin units, side units, base units and column units. Every piece is made from high-quality materials and is available in a choice of six contemporary finishes: soft, neutral greys; harmonising tones of light brown, textural natural wood veneers; and a sophisticated dark blue. Continuing the streamlined theme, handles have been replaced by push-to-open, soft-close drawers.
Brassware is where Sottini began when it was founded as a metal fabrication company by Antonio and Giuseppe Sottini in Piemonte in 1939. Sottini's range of brassware includes basin and bath mixers and shower systems with advanced technology that facilitates elegant and seamless performance.
Sottini products will be sold through an exclusive distribution network of retailers that share Sottini's philosophy for design and inspiration.
