We may not pay attention to our bathrooms very often, but the truth is they’re the little alcoves we spend a substantial amount of our time in, carrying out our personal activities. It’s probably the only time we’re ever truly alone, and bathrooms are like our own personal zones. Hence amping up our bathroom with the correct fixtures is quite important. These fixtures can make a huge difference in our everyday bathroom experience. And one such collection of fixtures I recently came across was the Face à face bathroom collection.
Designer: Agape x Jean Nouvel
Italian bathroom brand Agape teamed up with French architect Jean Nouvel to create this beautiful collection of sinks and baths. The name Face à face is derived from the dual meaning of the word ‘face’ in French. In French, the name translates to ‘surface’, and ‘human face’. The name intends to convey the materiality of the products, as well as their functionality in the process of bathing. Quite interesting, no?
The collection essentially consists of a stunning sink and a bathtub. Both products have a pretty angular feel to them and are highlighted by upright slabs of marble, as well as a tilted backrest in the tub. The slanted backrest was featured to give the impression that both sides of the bathtub are standing like separate pieces, rather than being connected. Crafted from flat sheets of marble, the collection truly celebrates the beauty of the material. It artfully showcases the detail, veining, and sheer simplicity of the stone. The products are available in two color options – black and white. So, you can go for either a lighter-themed bathroom or a darker one.
The basin also comes in various versions – countertop, wall-mounted and freestanding, along with the option of towel bars or storage elements. The Face à face collection is an elegant set of fixtures that can truly elevate your bathroom, and transform it into a sophisticated space in your home.
