Designer pieces to make any bath a sanctuary

by Evan Monroe

Gessi’s commitment to creativity manifests itself in designs that place the body at center stage. Attention is paid not only to the shapes of objects, but also to the materials and textures that render its bathroom products pleasant to touch and feel. The Inciso Collection, designed by David Rockwell, marks Gessi’s first collaboration with an American designer. The line is warm and modern, with subtle and elegant industrial details. Sculpted contours are paired with smooth surfaces and textured patterns, and can be customized by mixing finishes and textured inserts for a variety of combinations. Made in Italy. $1,797

Perlato slim soft sink
This dramatic modern piece unites sleek and subtle, square and round, sharp and soft in one striking, extra-durable fireclay bathroom sink. It’s minimalism at its finest. Optional towel bars are available for the left, right, or both sides of the sink. Shown here in 24-inch width, but it’s available in four sizes (as well as the Slim Soft Mini, which is perfect for compact spaces). Made in Italy. $485

Perlato Geneva tub
A vision in symmetry, the freestanding Perlato Genova tub slopes dramatically at both ends to cradle its bather in comfort and sophistication. It has all the high-end volume glories of a claw foot tub (84-gallon capacity), but its modernist appeal and form meets function approach gives it the strength and balance of a stunning statement piece. The solid surface Eco-Lapistone material boasts a luxurious velvety finish, high durability, and superior heat retention properties. Shown with Soft Touch Matte Black exterior; also available with white exterior. Made in Italy. $5,135
