At the recent Cersaie show, Glass Idromassaggio, the dynamic wellbeing producer from Italy, presented Naked, a highly original collection of baths designed by Giopato & Coombes.
Versatile and colourful, the Naked baths are furniture objects which can be interpreted and tailored to one's personal taste. Central to the design is a tempered glass top in 26 contemporary colours, supported by an aesthetic, exposed frame in signal white, iron grey or silk grey finish.
Unlike conventional frames which are generally concealed and serve only to support the bath, the Naked frame is a key, visible element of the design and can be accessorised with several modules.
There is a towel bar module, a shelves module, a fabric storage module and a deck module which transforms the bath into a handy top that exploits the space to the utmost degree, blending beauty with practicality.
The acrylic bath tub has generous dimensions of 1800 x 880mm and, to facilitate varied interior design preferences, is available in gloss white, matt white and striking matt black. Expressing its innovative character in a versatile way, the bath combines with the frame in three alternative versions: overtop - where the bath rim sits proud of the glass top, undertop - where the glass top sits onto the bath rim and a panelled model which encloses the bath while still making a feature of the exposed frame.
The wide range of colours and finishes available for the glass top and the panelling ranging from chocolate brown to cobalt blue and olive green to eastern red, combined with the three aesthetic frame colours and gently tapering bath tub, also with three colour options, makes it possible to achieve original combinations that can be harmoniously integrated in many contexts. Depending on the combinations chosen, Naked can either fit discreetly into the room, enrich it with eye-catching touches of colour or warm it up with pleasant natural shades.
Naked is available as a free-standing, corner or back-to-wall version.
