New mineral cast basins for VitrA Ecora Infinit furniture range for that millenial vibe
Smart, practical, and easy to care for, VitrA's successful Ecora furniture range now features a gloss mineral cast basin option which gives the range a cool new millennial vibe.
Ecora Infinit basin units are available in 60 and 90cm sizes with either two doors or one or two drawers. Vanity basins have a slim, narrow edge and a gently sloped bowl with a central waste. There is a roomy tap platform that will accommodate most brassware. Basin units are fitted with LED lighting.
In addition to the basin units, the Ecora Infinit range includes tall and small cupboards, a shelf and mirror cabinets. Furniture is available in high gloss white and oak.
Mineral cast is an increasingly popular material for basin manufacture. The material is made by mixing powdered marble and quartz with a polyester resin. The resulting mix is poured into a cast and finished with a coat of gel.
The material is also warm to the touch and thanks to its non-porous, hygienic surface; it is extremely easy to look after. All you need to clean it is a soft, damp cloth (not microfibre) with a little smooth liquid cleaner. And in the unlikely event that anything should happen to the virtually indestructible finish; scratches, minor damage, burn marks or everyday soiling caused by hair dye, nail varnish, coloured shoe-care products or coloured pens - can easily be removed and repaired by scouring or sanding and then polishing the affected area.
