The Taylor Howes room set is holistic in design and crafted using the finest materials. The freestanding basin and bath taps are from our exclusive Spillo range in a brushed black chrome finish, and the shower system is from the innovative SWITCH collection, designed to offer another dimension of bathroom well-being.

The striking freestanding basin from Italy, aptly named Tosca, is finished in a rich Brunito Terracotta, perfectly complemented by the Yoku S Shelf 45 Sauna in heat-treated Aspen.

“Inherently progressive in nature, we relish the opportunity to bring something new and innovative to the market through our designs. In our collaboration with C.P. Hart, we wanted to create an inviting spa-like sanctuary that sparks curiosity through design, to engage and invite the consumer to immerse themselves in our creation. We wanted to completely reimagine bathroom design and challenge the way people think about and use a bathroom.”

The room’s curved, polished plaster wall echoes the Japanese art of rock stacking, and flashes of brass trim mirror the ancient art of Kintsukuroi, lending a dynamic contrast to the organic curves of the architecture, as do the Tura robe rails in gunmetal. A central bonsai tree is complemented by a smaller tree and directly symbolises harmony, balance, and order; a reflective mirror within the ceiling coffer parallels the appearance of a shimmering lake.

To create a soothing atmosphere within the space, Taylor Howes incorporated soft, recessed lighting that lends warmth and comfort and inspires the act of Onsen. This Japanese bathing experience encourages a meditative appreciation of the body.
