Inarc Design Hong Kong Limited 9/F Yu Yuet Lai Building

43-55 Wyndham Street, Hong Kong t: +852 2868 2348

  , Inarc Design Hong Kong is a quality-driven design consultancy specialising in both interiors and architecture. The company has won an impressive ten awards for its project ‘The Owners with Kids Box, STRC, The Hong Kong Jockey Club’. Ultimately, the client’s goal was to provide a ‘first of its kind’ dining venue at the racecourse specifically designed for horse owners’ children. The design challenges were both complex and numerous as the existing space had little natural daylight or external views. Hence, throughout the concept, Inarc focused on the suitability of materials, colours, lighting and shapes in order to enhance the overall experience. The new dining venue had to accommodate approximately 200 guests and include an open

as well as a semi-private dining environment, betting facilities, a large buffet area, a fully selfcontained kitchen and access to a new viewing terrace – all within a special child-friendly interior environment. Therefore, the vision for the interior design solution was inspired by the colours and shapes that generally evoke fun with children. Moreover, child-friendly curved shapes were applied to the decorative semiprivacy screens and special lighting fixtures. The kitchen design provides an ‘active’ food experience for patrons and their children with a number of standalone buffet counters and a large glass ‘picture’ window to observe the main food preparation area. Even the bathrooms have been created to exude a ‘magic forest’ appeal for children with onyx stone giving the illusion of height to the walls with its multi-coloured veins.

Boasting the mixed-use interior and office interior awards for its ASYA Sales Gallery design, the company can attribute its success to really understanding clients’ individual preferences. The company goes above and beyond to seek out the finest in quality and innovative solutions. This has equated to a fresh and unique style that transcends existing boundaries within the world of design. This strategy would not be as successful if it wasn’t for PTang’s incredibly dedicated teams, each of which is managed by experienced designer.

The energy that permeates throughout the business is the very reason why clients have had exceptional experiences. You’ll find the award-winning ASYA Sales Gallery by journeying to Cakung, East Jakarta in Indonesia. There you’ll see the project stretched across a beautiful 70-hectare area with integrated facilities and infrastructure. Located in one of Jakarta’s thriving locations, ASYA is close to shopping malls and is strategically positioned beside Jakarta’s Outer Ring Road Toll, making the location easily accessible. The foundation of the concept was formed based on the research and comprehension of resort lifestyle and a selection of feature materials captured from the natural

surroundings in Jakarta. The dedication in the research is therefore easy to see by way of the final design. Featuring a selection of houses, villas, apartments and low-rise commercial components, the ASYA project is family oriented meaning its central focus surrounds family ancestry. Using the family tree as a physical concept, various architectural elements, such as lighting and partition features were used to emulate the trickle and flow of the tree. Each space is structured with interconnecting components, warm lighting and soft textures to echo feelings of warmth and sentiment. These physical details weave and envelop the visitor within a comfortable

setting, reiterating the sense of familial protection and nurture. The Reception sculpture is a representation of a tree, simulating the concept of lineage, while openness to the exterior is maintained to enhance the transition from day to night of the interior and exterior space. The concept of nature is applied in the children’s playroom in a more figurative approach to create a playful space. The use of natural materials like stone and wood veneer not only feature the distinctive local Indonesian style, but they also create a cozy resort-looking atmosphere. Overall PTang Studio Limited has created a unique place to incorporate the very best for comfort and style.

The Arthouse Penthouse

19 Ringwood Road

D 2019-2020

 I  one of the leading design studios in the Asia Pacific region. Helmed by partners Nikki Hunt and Andrea Savage, the company’s work has garnered an international reputation for attention to detail, quality and creativity, winning numerous awards including the five latest accolades featured here. The property 19 Ringwood Road in Singapore belongs to a single mother with a teenage daughter and seven-year-old son. She wanted Design Intervention to build her a home that would grow with the family and provide a sanctuary and feeling of permanence. The design has been inspired by the client’s preference for modern neo-classical architecture and contemporary ranch style. However, the greatest influencing factor was the incorporation of the existing 1950’s art deco home which had become badly dilapidated. By adapting elements from these two styles, a successful fusion with the original property has been achieved.

With a penchant for cooking, the client wanted the kitchen at Ringwood to be spacious, uncluttered and dramatic. The open plan space flows seamlessly from the rest of the house with clean lines complemented by glamorous elements for a luxurious ambience. A key part of the brief was to create a light, airy aesthetic as the kitchen has no windows. Achieving this goal, the space feels welcoming for the children while meeting the demands of a professional chef when required for frequent entertaining. The Arthouse Penthouse in Singapore is home to a well-travelled, cosmopolitan couple approaching retirement. They wanted a home with a warm and welcoming vibe, free from ostentation that resonated with homely comfort rather than ‘haute design’. Both avid collectors of paintings, wine and objet d’art, Design Intervention has succeeded in integrating the couple’s collections seamlessly into their new home, avoiding any showy displays.

A Mid-Century Revival

Twelve Cupcakes

Taking eight months to complete, the interior has captured the clients’ personal style while becoming an urban sanctuary for the family. The apartment is modern, timeless and equipped with all the comforts a home should possess combined with that essential spark of intrigue and excitement. The clients’ brief for A Mid-Century Revival in Perth, Australia, was to imbue the family home with colour and warmth. They also wanted to emphasise the clean lines and timeless quality of the architecture whilst including their impressive art collection. As blue proved the dominant colour in their artworks, they wished to weave this colour into the design. Incorporating a space and bar was of utmost importance as the enjoy entertaining and also host many business-related events at their home. Throughout the house, large sliding doors dispel the barrier between the interior and exterior and invite the outdoors inside. Mid-century motifs were featured in the

design to add drama and inject vibrant colour whilst still achieving a crisp visual appeal and facilitating a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors. Twelve Cupcakes is a Singaporean brand with a steady stream of shops around the City State. Its new retail store at Universal Studios Resorts World on Sentosa Island was to become the flagship outlet. The shopfront was not just for food but also to showcase the brand to an international audience as a springboard for expansion. The biggest challenge overcome by the design was accommodating the multitude of kitchen equipment, storage and display units as well as seating and serving patrons in just 378 square feet. Existing brick columns on the façade have been clad in a fun, bold graphic decal. This doubles as a pictorial menu and clearly conveys the message that ‘Twelve Cupcakes’ serves up far more than small cakes. A strong, geometric, asymmetric black and white pattern then flanks the clear glass doors.

As an awardwinner, the company focuses on vision, specific requirements and the desires of its clients. For this particular master bath project, the clients wanted a luxurious space for complete relaxation. Customised designs tailored to their daily activities were required, including grooming facilities, a beverage centre and cabinetry with smart integrated storage. A steam shower with chromotherapy, aromatherapy, and ergonomic seating was a must, not only for sheer pleasure but for health benefits, too. There was also a need for an adjoining shower with high-quality plumbing fixtures, which

was as a direct result of the clients sharing a love for health and wellness properties. Custom cabinetry featured trash pull-outs, along with internal drawers and a grooming appliance storage cabinet. The original closet was completely demolished, giving new life to a custom closet with an island and integrated shoe pull-out storage. A coffee bar with integrated sink, beverage centre and a pull-out k-cup holder helps the clients start off their day without ever leaving their master retreat. The bathroom features sleek sculptural lines and minimal aesthetic with neutral backgrounds.

    in 1996, ID21 continues to be instrumental in helping many different businesses identify and appreciate the transformational impact of integrating modern workplace strategies into corporate offices. Following an Asia Pacific 2018 Award win last year, the design and build firm pulls a hat trick of wins this year, adding to an impressive list of recognitions for its industry-leading workplace design. Two of the award wins are workplace designs for prominent global firms, which affirms the fast-growing Singapore firm’s position at the forefront of workplace design in the APAC region. The third is awarded to the design of ID21’s own office, a compelling example of the firm’s creativity and testament to its vision of transforming spaces that bring out the best in people.

When ID21 decided to move to a duplex unit in the same office block, it was a conscious decision to raise the game on the company’s line of expertise: creating inspirational interiors that set the trends in workplace design. As design and build specialists with a strong team of in-house designers and project managers as well as engineering and construction experts, ID21 relished the challenge to reinvent and push the boundaries in designing and executing a visionary space that the team would be proud to call home. The challenge of this new space was to be radically different from ID21’s former premises, but the loftier, double-volume unit also presented an opportunity to give staff more generous and inspiring premises. The result is a grand departure from the bright, predominantly white scheme of the previous

office, a dimly-lit and curiously different space invites visitors to explore the space and, in turn, the company’s work. The entrance has a discreet logo which has been laser cut and folded in light relief, alluding to the origami concept seen in ID21’s branding. From the outside, a heavy sliding door in oxidised copper gives away little of what lies beyond. This element of surprise continues around every turn, heightened by the distinct experience of each area. The concept of the design contrasts was developed to create an inspiring and energising workspace. A rainforest-themed reception evokes tranquillity as visitors enter, before turning the corner to face a bright and vibrant office which stimulates the senses. In order to accommodate staff growth, the previous open-plan environment had to be

reconsidered to maintain the ideal balance of social interaction, collaboration and individual concentration. One industrial-themed section featuring an oversized neon sign bearing the playfully adapted slogan ‘Keep Calm & Rock On’ banishes workplace monotony and enhances team spirits, whilst another area evokes serenity with lush greenery built into the storage features. It’s a powerful example of ID21’s commitment to unlocking, nurturing and empowering the people in the spaces the company designs. From productivity, wellbeing to collaboration, the diverse needs of the company are able to converge seamlessly in a creative environment, whilst bringing out the firm’s core values of Accountability; Service; People First; Innovation; Respect; and Excellence.

  , WA International is a Dubai-based interior design studio which is renowned for creating exquisite interiors for the hospitality market. The company has established an enviable clientele with longstanding relationships reflecting its superlative performance and commitment to unique interiors. The two award-winning projects featured here are prime examples of WA International’s attention to detail and expertise. Jumeirah Royal Saray Bahrain is a highly luxurious five-star hotel offering 174 guestrooms, four Royal Residences, a spa, gym and restaurants. The exterior of the building was inspired by the Andalusian Moorish style of architecture, while its interiors embrace a contemporary Arabic design. They have

been designed to reflect both the abundant pearl diving waters of the Gulf as well as the stunning patterns seen in the vernacular architecture and its detailing. WA International’s greatest influence for this project was from Sheikh Isa Bin Ali Al Khalifa’s beautiful heritage home with its intricate Bahrani patterns. These wonderful layers of complex designs have been etched in rows in marble, wood, plaster and on glass. The overall colour scheme of the hotel features luminous marble and pearlescent specialist paint finishes. Almost white chenille fabrics have also been selected to further reference Bahrain’s lustrous pearling industry. Royal blue and purple accent cushions are then added to provide a pop of colour throughout the interiors to great effect.

ETHIOPIA

Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa

The new Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa is located off Meskel Square which is the centre of the city, connecting artery roads to the heart of the capital. Within walking distance of the United Nations Conference Centre, the Hyatt Regency offers something not seen before in Addis Ababa: luxury with a design rooted in history, nature and the people of Ethiopia. The property offers 188 keys including Regency Suites and Royal Suites, an all-day dining and speciality restaurant, wellness centre and state-of-the-art fitness centre, an outdoor heated swimming pool and exquisite landscaped areas. The client’s brief was to create a five-star hotel with modern amenities, contemporary in design with a sense of location and Ethiopian pride. Catering primarily for the delegates of the African

Union and other diplomatic summits, the hotel had to provide a unique experience. When translated, Addis Ababa means new flower and so WA International created a multifaceted concept with inspiration from nature. The lily, which is the national flower of Ethiopia, contrasting landscapes of the country’s vast highlands, valleys, rivers and the source of the Blue Nile have all helped to shape the design concept. Bird colours and characteristic feather markings also transcend conceptually into the interiors in a subtle and sophisticated approach. Last but not least, woven into the concept are beaded Ethiopian jewellery, indigenous body painting adornment and traditional Tibeb fabrics. The ensuing interiors have not only met all the necessary requirements but also created a truly exceptional guest experience.

 V D was the result of Mexican based CIBRIAN Arquitectos, a contemporary design, construction and interiors specialist working alongside the company’s founder and architect, Fernando Cibrian to create him a very personalised and individual home. The brief was to develop something that embodied Cibrian’s aspirations, and sense of escapism through its architectural design and interiors. The resulting effect was a substantial, five-storey residence, nestled within the 20-metre deep cliffs. One of the outstanding features of the property is the fabulous views facing out towards a duo of volcanoes and lush green golf course. Exquisite finishes and an eclectic

art collection give this property its awardwinning characteristics. The company also scooped a second award for Casa Valencia, commissioned by Pueblas State University. The brief here was to create a property for its annual raffle to raise student funding. The challenge was to build and fully furnish the family residence, based in Mexico’s Puebla, within a tight schedule of just four months. In a fine balance of form and functionality, Cibrian came up with a design featuring large interconnecting shapes that create volume and something that maximised the potential of this corner plot. Nordic styling is reflected throughout the interiors using a blend of different wood tones and neutral colour palette.

The company has been successful in winning awards for the two following projects. Worker’s Cottage Cape Town is a newly renovated 100 year-old property with a large, seamless extension. The new owner wanted to make some small tweaks to elevate the final look and create a relaxed home that still retained a sense of style. Overall, the chosen interior design features grey shades offset by touches of black, white and teal. By using the same colours throughout the house, Jacket Interiors has provided a perfect backdrop for the client’s art collection. By updating

Jacket Interiors was also commissioned to redesign the interiors of an iconic hotel in Johannesburg when it changed ownership to become the Four Seasons Hotel – Westcliff. The brief was to give it a sense of place and tell a story of the city and of South Africa. Every area including all bedrooms and suites, the entrance lobby, new spa, ballroom building and new deli coffee shop were refurbished. Three elegantly contemporary room types were created exuding an essence of Africa. The restoration of existing pieces of furniture also gives a feeling of a home that is lived in resulting in colonial meets contemporary appearance.

 E A, an awardwinning interior designer based in Beirut, Lebanon, was commissioned to transform RN Residence, an apartment belonging to a couple with two young daughters. Her motto is: Our mission is to positively influence the lives of our customers by shaping their spaces with timeless designs and gracing their homes with the style, sophistication, elegance and warmth that capture the essence of their personalities. The brief was to create a timelessly stylish, luxurious and functional living area which would fully utilise the available space for both the family and entertaining on a large scale. Although the couple have very different style preferences, some commonalities emerged that helped the design process.

Drawing inspiration from their personalities and lifestyle, a concept of ‘where two opposites meet’ evolved. This emphasises contrast, intersection, interlocking connection, pairing and symmetry across all furniture, textiles and materials. Being a believer that an interior is the natural projection of the soul, the resultant design naturally features a graceful combination of interconnected spaces that progress seamlessly from the television area to the main entertaining area and finally to the dining area. Neutral tones have been used to allow the finer details of the furniture and metal elements to shine through while also enabling Mariam El Alaoui to be creative with textures and patterns. Light and bright walls also prove more reflective, making the space feel open and airy and maximising the natural light.

Believing that interiors are much more than being just about space, the design specialist uses a creative approach to accentuate client personality. The firm’s award-winning interior design for the General Secretariat of the Cabinet in Dubai is a design triumph, reflecting traditional local heritage and modern cultural diversity.

Commissioned patriarchal artworks customise the décor, whilst the use of industrial materials modernise the design. Exotic plants, strawberry shoots, colourful

fixtures and patterns add a sense of playfulness. An installation of a preserved tree with mirrors above and below, symbolising infinite reflection, sits as a central focal point, signifying the growth and development of the United Arab Emirates. All the while the design retains a corporate vibe throughout. The executive wing uses a rich mix of material finishes with opulent marbles, natural wood and clean lines to create comfortable Majlis lounges within the work space. On the other side of the building, general staff areas are contrasted with a more contemporary, industrial, playful design. The use of multi-coloured accents and zoning is combined to create an open and creative atmosphere, accentuated by a tropical lounge, surrounded by exotic plants.

To create the perfect solution, a mix of old and new furnishings were used across four floors.

Hand-painted ceilings, mahogany meeting tables, bespoke desks and storage units made to blend in with the interior of the walls are

The owl motif is part of the company brand and is creatively referenced in the interior design elements. Other features include a marble fireplace, a coffee bar as well as a cantine-bistro for employees and guests. The walls use soft colour hues to give a sense of calm and lightness, while the majestic front façade offers executive meeting rooms with an unbeatable garden view.

Clients can expect a truly five-star experience as they enter this office, which has been influenced by the surrounding external architecture. The bright and airy reception area emits a feeling of the modern combined with the classical from the stunning, modern reception desk to the wooden flooring and comfortable lounge area located next to the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the square and the city. A variety of workplace settings have been designed throughout the office to reflect the different methods of working within four

Having been delivered by its own expert occupier fit-out team, it’s a great example of CBRE practicing what they preach.

 W I is an established interior design firm based in Delhi that has catered to over a hundred residential, industrial and commercial interior projects. One such project is the award-winning Sattva House in Jor Bagh, New Delhi, created to the home owner’s exact specifications. The client sought to create an ambient space that would incorporate the philosophy of ‘Sattva,’ which in Sanskrit means light, goodness and purity. The 3-bedroom abode’s contemporary style is uncluttered and minimalistic, and following a holistic treatment, the client adopted lifestyle and postural changes for wellness. This is evident in his request for low level seating that would allow him to comfortably sit in the lotus position.

Owing to Delhi’s temperamental weather conditions, the design had to cater more-so to the hotter climate. Fortunately, the secondfloor apartment faces a garden that has shade giving trees, while energy-conserving air conditioners and ceiling fans are dotted across the interior. Beautifully handcrafted Oakwood furniture was carefully customised and strategically placed, freeing the central space for movement, while storage solutions were wall-stacked to allow for space continuity. In keeping with the minimalistic design, the palette chosen includes pastels and a variety of pared-back accented patterns and tones. Botticino flooring and sans rugs create a visual fluidity, while a teak wood door and window frames further accentuate the sense of being rooted to earth. Overall, the attention to detail makes this residence one for the books.

The company’s award-winning interior design project House at Deauville is a seaside property with two small gardens located at Ting Kau, New Territories, Hong Kong. Owned by a couple with a teenager and a live-in maid, their brief required a master suite, bedroom suite for their son and two guest bedrooms. The clients’ preference was for a modern contemporary design with lots of details and material combinations coupled with light colours and harmonious tones. In order to enhance the experience of the living/dining room, the space has been completely linked

with the back garden. Natural colours have been used on materials such as wood, metal, leather and marble to continue the theme of nature throughout. When the glass sliding doors are opened, the interior and exterior are completely converted into a spacious area which entirely enhances the area. An existing narrow staircase on the ground floor with a tall balustrade was disliked immensely by the clients as they found it much too oppressive. Therefore, KES Interior Design widened the staircase and rearranged the balustrade to make it appear far more transparent and spacious. The overall mood of the property, the enhancement of its views and the way the outside has been integrated with the interiors has surpassed the clients’ expectations.

The clients, a married couple with a teenage daughter, commissioned o2design to transform its interiors in a contemporary, yet elegant, way. The apartment’s planning can be described as simple and logical. It consists of three rooms with a large living room and a space that combines the kitchen with the dining room. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two dressing rooms and a laundry room. Two loggias with lounge areas were also added to

the living space next to the kitchen and one of the bedrooms. The neoclassical style and the colour white was chosen as the starting point. From there, white cornice mouldings created a beautiful contrast with colourful modern furniture. This added a certain cultural context resulting in an interior which could be found in any European capital. The apartment is full of designer’s inventions but also features many of the clients’ own ideas. They even visited iSaloni fair in Milan with the designer to choose specific furniture for the living and dining rooms and the master bedroom. Thus, the interior’s striking colour palette, stylish furniture and impressive contemporary artwork came to life.

The two following award-winning projects in São Paulo are prime examples. Groenlandia is a 740m² residence constructed around 1950 that has undergone a stunning retrofit led by Fernanda Marques. The project required a number of structural alterations in order to meet the growing requirements of the clients, a couple and their three children. Living spaces were optimised to enable the family’s many guests and enhanced by the use of a soft colour palette, natural materials and an abundance of lighting solutions. A new gourmet

area was created by moving the pool area to one side of the house, while ground floor openings were enlarged to form a better integration between the internal and external areas. Panorama was designed for a keen art collector and his wife and so the main goal was to house all the works of art harmoniously, allowing for the collection’s future growth. The owner also had an aspiration to include a swimming pool in the apartment. Building the pool presented the biggest challenge as Fernanda Marques decided to place it in pride of place in the living room. Thick glass was imported and specialised labour required to install the pool which has ultimately become yet another work of art within this superb two floor apartment.

With an aim to offer more luxury solutions for clients with higher standards, the creation of Elite Bath took centre stage. Following the success of this establishment, there was a clear need for expansion outside of Prague, so a bathroom and kitchen interiors showroom was opened in Slovakia. Inspired by the functionality, materials and visuals of its Prague premises, the Bratislava branch was fitted with additional mod cons to give clients a visually-appealing representation of the end result they could potentially have. Overall unity in style, tone and design was essential. Included in the design was a fully

functional spa, a Bulthaup kitchen with a large dining table, where company staff regularly meet for dinner with clients, architects and developers. Tilted platform podiums, each with a specific floor surface, function as presentation spots for a solitary product range. One initial problem was creating an intimate spa and separating it from the rest of the showroom. This was solved by using special electronic milk glass, which provides privacy only when it is needed. An electronically controlled vertical shower with sensors and three settings; aromatherapy, chromotherapy and water features increased the design standards. A table decked out in faucets allows clients to test more than 20 functioning faucets with multiple types, shapes and colours to choose from.

Inspired by the elements of nature such as earth, stone and wood, her award-winning project, Guest Space, is a 218m² building of metal construction in São Paulo. Dedicated to relaxation, it is perfect for gathering family and friends together. Guests are welcomed by a charming tropical garden square with a pair of hanging rope swings and potted jaboticaba trees to complement the overall relaxing atmosphere. Due to three large, fully glazed sliding doors, the living room with its fireplace and the gourmet kitchen are beautifully connected to the garden. An absolute synonym of comfort and coziness, wood is incorporated into both the wall panels

of the living room and the wide planks of souari nut in the gourmet area. Porcelain tiles adorn the floor, while other natural materials such as stone and brick bring a harmonic balance of nuances and textures present on surfaces and furniture. This palette has been intentionally selected in order to make the most of the client’s various works of art including sculptures and photographs by well-known artists. Acoustic comfort was a key concern due to the building’s 4.30 metre-high ceilings. Thus, an exclusive designer rug has been suspended between the walls to act as both an attractive tapestry and sound absorption element. Completing the project perfectly, lighting brings together external beacons and built-in dots creating a striking, contrasting effect.

   for creating timeless interiors for residential and commercial properties, Londonbased interior designer Ana Engelhorn uses her knowledge to design visually appealing spaces. Her creativity has won her an award for the Farmhouse Catalan in Spain. The farmhouse isn’t short on old-fashioned charm and historical facts as it comprises two towers dating back to the 16th century – both used to watch for pirates coming in from sea. The residence had previously undergone small renovations to create little rooms, a fake ceiling and two stairways, thus removing the elements that made it truly unique. Ana’s task was therefore to bring this building back to its former glory by removing the additional walls, ceiling and second staircase to give the family a three-bedroom house they could use as their summer residence.

The outcome included the restoration of traditional stone floors and the inclusion of antique oak boards upstairs. To accentuate the property’s high ceilings, large airy rooms were needed to coincide with the beautiful Spanish countryside. A large open-plan kitchen coupled with a dining room and two children’s bedrooms can be viewed on the southside of the building. On the north side, a brief wander through a walkway leads to a large living room, while the first floor houses a large open-plan master bedroom that includes a dressing room and bathroom designed with a freestanding cast-iron bath. The first floor allows access to the towers, with the west tower being used as a library and the east as a shoe closet. Overall, hints of pale colours adorn each room highlighting antique furniture and contemporary art.

The company has won a Bathroom Design award for its Sparkling Spa master bathroom remodelling project. Keith Miller was given the task of making considerable changes to his clients’ outdated bathroom as they journeyed towards transforming a secondary home into a primary family residence. The end result was a marrying of individual style, modern aesthetics and attention to detail without compromising on luxury.

To begin with, the true beauty of the shower room was masked with low-quality, outdated fixtures and furnishings. Storage was uncomfortable to access owing to the awkward corner vanity and there was a lack of ventilation due to poor planning. However, the one redeeming quality is the large window showcasing the beautiful Pacific Northwest view. A stroll into the renovated bathroom reveals cleaner architectural lines, opening up of enclosed spaces, high-quality fixtures, a customised Moroccan-style rug for visual interest, a frameless shower and the star of the show; a luxury freestanding tub transforming a mundane morning ritual into an appealing bathing experience.
