Lighting is an underrated design element. It defines the mood, highlights specific bathroom accessories and lets others fade into the background. Lighting emphasises the bathroom design and allows the room to shine to its best advantage.
An iconic freestanding bath like MEISTERSTÜCK CONODUO is a bold design statement in itself. Adding a striking designer lamp like Circus 750 by Resident to the room transforms it into a work of art. A spotlight emphasises the bath, pushing other parts of the bathroom and the floor into the background, leaving a space that is dominated by two one-of-a-kind objects that correspond and make each other shine even brighter, like in an exhibition.
DESIGNER LAMP SUPERLOON by Flos makes this bathroom daylight bright. The LED lamp, created by Jasper Morrison, doesn’t just bring light to the room, it also adds shade. The unusually positioned light source dramatically highlights the contrasts in the room, brilliantly emphasising their contours, but without dazzling. The tripod base adds a touch of studio atmosphere, presenting the bathroom objects and the people who use the room as stars.
Bathroom lighting is a complicated subject. The area in front of the mirror calls for bright lights, while the lighting in the rest of the room needs to vary according to mood and function. A product series that offers a great solution for all of these needs is Mito by Occhio: it creates different light scenarios and can even be remotely controlled. Gentle light in the bathroom creates a relaxing setting, a higher setting provides the perfect brightness to read a book, and full intensity helps when cleaning the bathroom.
Use your favourite object as a design principle: a shower tray, washbasin and bathtub from a single range, made of the same material and featuring a common design language yet each with their own distinctive charm. They are variations on a design theme and they enhance each other, while at the same time bringing harmony to the bathroom because they match so perfectly.
