Chelsea: vintage modernism in bathroom design

La colección Chelsea de Noken, firma de equipamiento de baños de PORCELANOSA, ofrece soluciones de lavabo, bañera y ducha que aúnan el encanto de lo retro.

Noken takes a retrospective view of the past so that vintage style blends into modernism in a sophisticated and elegant bathroom design. With this aim in mind, the firm has developed the Chelsea bathroom collection, a series inspired by both the Belle Époque and the golden 19th century.

The Chelsea collection from Noken, PORCELANOSA Grupo’s bathroom equipment  firm, offers solutions for the basins, bathtubs and showers which gather the allure of retro together with the timelessness of simple conventional lines.

It is worth highlighting the new taps from the Chelsea series because of their pure and simple shapes, thus providing the bathroom with not only a feeling of luxury and character, but charm as well.

Curving lines and hexagon-shaped taps

The hexagon is the connecting element among all the items of the Chelsea bathroom equipment. It goes perfectly in line with the continuous curved lines of the collection.

As a solution for the basin, Noken has designed a round front in a white gloss colour, with the aim of representing the simplicity of the past, and furthermore, it is fitted with a white oakwood drawer with push handle opening, which provides a higher storage capacity, and at the same time, becomes more functional. The wall-hung option for the Chelsea basin conveys a modernist touch, thus, providing more character. With regard to the taps, one can find simple lines combined with hexagonal shapes on the base, together with gold colour finishes, which together recall that exclusive touch from the Belle Époque.

The imperial style shower with a stainless steel gold hexagonal rain shower, offers several combinations regarding customizing, according to the needs of each space. To get a unique shower experience, Chelsea allows us to opt for SmartBox technology or Project Line internal body, through which the equipment is integrated on the wall, and this, at the same time, enhances the combination. Additionally, all the bathroom fittings are available in a shiny chrome colour, which is combined with a steel and polished mirror finish.

The Chelsea freestanding bathtub successfully combines the minimalism of the modern era with the retro design characteristic of the collection. It can be installed in any bathroom area since it is accessible from anywhere, and it includes finishes without visible joints, which achieve even further integration in the space. Its plain shaped overflow facilitates the filling and its side shelf increases functionality. Floor mounted taps, also in a gold finish and its Tri-Control equipment integrated with SmartBox and flow rate regulator, complete a unique bathtub.

All the Chelsea collection equipment includes a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition), an ecological design from Noken which provides their products with further durability.

Take yourself back to the golden age and enjoy the Belle Epoque by Chelsea.
