Dark Arts: Kitchen and Bath Trend

White fixtures and fittings lack the drama desired in most modern homes. Introducing darker colors in elements like sinks, tubs, and faucets can help a kitchen or bathroom flow into the rest of a home’s rooms while adding a modern element that is as sophisticated as it is mysterious. Take a look at how industrial designers are embracing the darker side:

villeroy & boch, lagor, sink, grey, kitchen, bath

LagorPure 50 by Villeroy & Boch: Available in two sizes, the new sink combines a circular basin and square drainer surface in black, allowing it to be a focal point for modern eat-in kitchens.

Kohler, Falling Water, faucet, black

Falling Water by Kohler: The wall-mount bathroom sink faucet, shown in satin black, has a 10 1/4-inch sweep spout designed for easy cleaning. A single-lever handle offers ergonomic operation.

Como, Ceramica Flaminia, toilet, bath, grey

Como by Ceramica Flaminia: Available in several shades of grey and black, the new Como line includes a toilet available in wall- and floor-mounted versions. The collection, which was designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, also includes three basins and a bidet.

Agape, Pear Cut, grey, bathtub, patricia-urquiola

Pear Cut by Agape: Patricia Urquiola’s Pear Cut bathtubs are available in white or in a combination of white and grey Cristalplant material. Tubs are available with feet, wraparound support elements, or in a built-in version that lies flush with the floor surface.

Aquatech, Kerasan

Aquatech by Kerasan: Available in white ceramic, contrasting black exterior and white interior, or shiny or matte all-black composition, the new collection includes monolithic and free-standing washbasins, floor-mounted and suspended bidets and bathtubs, and urinals for the contract design market.
