On the occasion of the 24th Global Architecture and Interior Design PORCELANOSA Grupo International Exhibition, Noken offered visitors and professionals an innovative showroom which worked as the perfect framework for the launch of its latest designs. After several months’ hard work, the bathroom equipment firm created a unique and cutting-edge exhibition room, where water played a major role in its signature spaces.
Noken has given importance to its collaborations with renowned designers once again, which has resulted in a series of high-technology bathrooms and magnificent designs in the most exclusive Premium bathrooms. Collections such as Vitae, Lounge or Tono all being clear examples of that balance between aesthetical excellence and advanced equipment, within the reach of the most luxurious worldwide projects.
Designers’ area: distinction in ‘branded’ designs
Noken’s showroom at the 24th edition of the Exhibition has stood out because of a designers’ area which brought together the most outstanding bathroom collections, done by internationally renowned professionals.
After having shone at its launch at Cersaie 2016, the Tono collection by Foster+Partners was also present in Noken’s showroom by offering each of its functional items for the bathroom: ranging from the bathtub and basins, to the taps, mirrors and sanitaryware. We are dealing with a collection that was hugely successful among the professional audience, not only because of its modularity and minimalist beauty, but also because of the use of fine materials such as natural stone, natural wood or the KRION Solid Surface.
Vitae was once again the star in the showroom, thanks to its elegance, sinuosity and future-inspired spirit. Everybody was amazed again by the latest bathroom collection by Zaha Hadid because of its uniqueness regarding the shapes, which are inspired by water movement. It was showcased in two spaces: the basin and mirror double unit, and the single unit.
One of the other outstanding signature spaces was Lounge, the collection by the Italian designer, Simone Micheli. In this atmosphere, visitors at the 24th Exhibition were able to see Premium copper finishes for all the tap pieces: THE single lever basin mixer, showerheads, floor-standing shower taps, etc. Additionally, an area with floor-standing basins and the Lounge Square bathtub was made available, as well as another area with sanitaryware, a bidet and the Diamonds furniture with countertop basins, apart from the anthracite furniture from the same collection.
The Noken area: the latest exclusive designs for modern bathrooms
Apart from the designers’ area, Noken showcased its latest bathroom designs in another area with different atmospheres and other collections from the firm, seeking to become an inspiration for architects and interior designers who visited the exhibition.
Arquitect, for instance, was one of the most successful collections, since it was extended and has become a high-end collection thanks to its new pieces in the high-quality Noken Ceramic. The basins, for their part, stood out in one of the atmospheres, by offering matte aesthetics and an elegant white colour in combination with the Round taps. In this very same atmosphere, one could find the new Arquitect furniture, soft to touch, with low light reflection and thermal repair among other characteristics; as well as the Arquitect bathtub in an acrylic and white matte finish, and wall-hung sanitaryware and bidets, also in white matte.
Some of the other latest news from Noken in this edition of the Exhibition, was the extension of the Pure Line collection. It is a series which was showcased in a spacious atmosphere with a bathtub, fine-edged basins, electronic taps and a mirror; as well as through the new Pure Line Glass basins with the smoked mirror front and the Pure Line mechanical taps.
Urbatek’s involvement was also present in other atmospheres in Noken’s showroom. It was possible to see its XLight in the space dedicated to the Forma collection, since it had been installed on the coverings in all the spaces. Furthermore, this area showcased sanitaryware and extra-flat shower packs.The XLight by Urbatek, however, was also innovatively showcased in one of the other atmospheres, where Tile is. A series of design bathroom furniture wall tiled in extra-slim porcelain tiles and Forma countertop basins. The last one of the spaces that is worth highlighting was the area of the Essence-C sanitaryware in a white matte finish, which was offered together with the new Project ceramic shower tray for an integral bathroom concept. In short, a showroom with spaces which inspire, and full of unusual corners.
