Baths by Clay produces some fab Hi-Macs basins
In our ever-evolving homes, there is one room that maintains its purpose of form and function - the bathroom. This sanctuary of the soul is our retreat from the stresses and strains of everyday life; a place where we can escape to relax and unwind after a hard day.
It's also a room that needs to revive and energise as we begin each new day and in order to meet the demands of everyday family living, the design must be durable, hardwearing, practical and, above all else, aesthetically pleasing.
Baths by Clay is a Dutch company specialising in bathroom furniture design and production which epitomises the importance of a balanced bathroom environment and attest to the ethos that design should be made without compromise.
With this in mind, many of its bespoke basins are made from Hi-Macs Solid Surface. Strong, hardwearing and easy on the eye, this homogenous material is solid throughout. And whilst it is virtually scratchproof, even if it does retain the odd mark after years of daily use, it can
simply be refinished for a sleek, seamless surface.
Another benefit is that Hi-Macs is non-porous, making it easy to clean and resistant to stains, moisture and sunlight. The perfect material for bathroom design, it offers everything you could want for a clean, contemporary interior scheme.
The 2016 basin collection includes four stunning styles designed to take your bathroom to the next level. Edge is a new form, simple yet sophisticated and characterised by its minimalist rectangular appearance and thin 12mm edge.
Wave is also new and encapsulates smooth, gentle contours that seamlessly blend into the worktop in a natural motion. With clean lines and curvaceous appeal, it is available in three sizes to complement both classic and contemporary settings.
Also new is Level, named after its difference in levels with a raised surface for a basin-mounted tap and hand soap. Practical and beautiful, it has the option of positioning the plateau at the sides or back of the basin - a true design classic.
For free-flowing motion, the Timeless washbasin has a subtle oval shape that blends seamlessly into the countertop. All these basins can be free hanging, integrated, built on top of a cabinet or on a plateau - the options are endless.
Hi-Macs can be moulded into any shape and is widely used for architectural and interior applications in both residential and commercial projects. Made from a mix of acrylic, natural minerals and pigments, it creates a smooth, non-porous and visually seamless surface that meets the highest standards for aesthetics, fabrication, functionality and hygiene.
The most successful bathroom schemes are created with style, durability and longevity in mind. Design should be timeless with furniture and fittings adaptable to our ever-changing needs.
It is this philosophy that has led Baths by Clay towards its made to measure approach and the application of Hi-Macs within its cutting-edge designs.
Instead of a fixed size or a modular look, furniture can be seamlessly shaped into any design, offering the ultimate in flexibility and freedom for client, designer, architect and sanitaryware specialist.
