The circular Piatto shower base (150cmx6cm) from Kaldewei is absolutely striking. It appears of be floating on the floor. And how about that gorgeous, luxurious shower curtain. It's all so dreamy. Hang on a minute...alarm bells are ringing. Shower bases and shower curtains are rarely described as luxurious. I do have faint memories of a dull, scratched shower base and mouldy shower curtain from many many years ago. Here's what they say: The shower plate is made of Kaldewei steel enamel. You can't scratch it if you tried. And the curtain is Teflon-coated taffeta with concealed magnets in the hem. This ensures the curtain falls straight and flush with the shower edge. It comes in 3 colours - bordeaux red, anthracite and chamois beige. And if still one requires more, the Superplans can be embellished with 24-karat gold plating on your request. Make it all mine...I mean yours! Keep an eye on this page for the Australian release.

I'm a big Jamie Hayon fan. His sense of fun really appeals to me. The multi leg Showtime collection brings it all together, functional, whimsical and beautifully designed. Here are two others designers who meet that criteria too.

"Jaime Hayon is the most intriguing figure in new Spanish design. He has energy, talent and a style of his own, which are all distilled into the Showtime collection. The multileg single or double credenza is a modular system allowing usage of multiple leg styles. Modules can be single or stacked 2 high". Excerpt from Design Farm.
Image via Interstudio"The 'Vissy' credenza is finished in high gloss two-pac polyurethane. It has changeable sliding doors (timber or fabric covered), enabling adaptability to changing seasons and environments. Drawing upon the antiquated furniture making technique of marquetry, Vissy's timber sliding doors is a reinterpretation of this into the contemporary format of a geometric circular pattern. The circles come alive as you move around the room, the light catches them similar to the way dandelions subtly grab your attention as they sway in the breeze. The fruit bowl morphing into the surface is a logical progression of enhancing the shininess, typifying the forms seen in ceramics, and creating an interesting dialogue between the surfaces." Excerpt from Woodmark.
"Designed by Jason Bird, the Radii buffet is ideally made to complement the Nick table series. Locally produced with a combination of 2-pack lacquer to cupboard facings and oak veneer carcass surround which can be colour stained to match preferred finishes". Excerpt from Interstudio.

I'm digging this clock design from Top 3 by Design. The Mantel Dome is a modern interpretation of an old world carriage clock. Beautiful aren't they. It is a product of a collaboration between Cédric Ragot, of creative trio “designedbyitem”, and Innermost. Image via Top 3.
