We have featured Diesel Living on Warehouse Home before when we wrote about their collaboration on a range of tiles for Iris Ceramica. Now, the international lifestyle company has once again joined forces with Italian kitchen and bathroom manufacturer Scavolini to create an industrial style bathroom that offers the perfect blend of functionality and style.
Diesel Open Workshop personifies the current trend for industrial minimalism that is sweeping through home interiors at the moment. Warehouse Home was present at Living Kitchen in Cologne last week and industrial finishes were seen everywhere from cabinetry and surfacing right through to appliances.
The Open Workshop bathroom features ambitious design that incorporates warm hues, dark colours and matt materials alongside large mirrored surfaces and metallic volumes. There is a lot going on in this bathroom in terms of the contrasting visual stimuli that have been incorporated, however it all comes together to create a harmonious whole that is both attractive and highly functional.
The large copper-effect Stopsol mirror panels act like a backdrop to the bathroom cabinet and are a distinguishing trait of the Open Workshop collection. The washbasin base units, which are shown in the opening image in Slate Black matt lacquered finish, are accompanied by a tubular Stock Rack towel rail.
The Stock Rack system also features shelves with an aluminium frame, in a bronze-finish, and Smoky Glass surfaces. This wall system, which is designed by Diesel, allows various different configurations to be arranged either vertically or horizontally. The modular metallic structures made of iron tubing impart a distinctively industrial twist and offer a solution that embellishes the modularity of the Diesel Open Workshop bathroom furnishing system.
The collection features a range of materials and finishes that exude metropolitan style. From decorative melamine, aluminium, Bianco Carrara marble, Nero Marquinia marble, ribbed glass, and black mesh.
The Open Workshop bathroom has a strong industrial vibe combined with a surprising warmth. The bathroom is designed to be both intimate and social, and at the same time, full of personality. At the core is a remarkable attention to style, right down to the detailing, materials, and textures, to create simple but compelling forms for lovers of understated design.
Open Workshop is available from C.P. Hart in the UK.
