A New Dimension in Bathing: Ceramica Flaminia’s new Leggera Bathtub
The new Leggera bathtub from Ceramica Flaminia is a design that will arouse curiosity in all who see it. Resembling a crisp white cloth held taut by four invisible hands, the Leggera stretches out invitingly… the vision of designer Gilda Borgnini. The lightness of the design, and the thin surfaces of the bathtub allows for a sense of freedom from the usual boundaries. The outside and inside of the bathtub are less marked, melting into one another with a sensation of airy relaxation. A stainless steel shower pole pierces through the porcelain effortlessly, as if it were indeed cloth. The tub’s shape and dimensions are ideal for reclining to your full length, undisturbed by the normal restrictions (even if you are very tall), and are likewise also perfect for containing any splashes from the shower. Soak and shower to your heart’s content in the new Leggera bathtub by Ceramica Flaminia.
Don’t have a cow, have a bath!
The already hugely popular Stone One bath collection has now been released in this cow ‘skin’ design. Stone One baths are made from a resin based composite material called Compolight and manufactured in Belgium, while the imitation cow skin is clad onto the bath and made from micronised leather. The mock leather is treated for water resistance and will not fade over time.
Designed by Paolo Chipiron and manufactured by Aquamass, the bath measures 1700mm in length by 870mm wide. The internal depth is 490mm with a water capacity of 200 litres. As well as the cow skin Stone One bath (shown) it is also available in an array of colours as well as many other mock leather skins and mosaic patterns too.
The sanitary ware is hand-made using sheets of natural acrylic stone from LG HI-MACS, and can be thermo-formed into almost any shape and joined seamlessly, permitting the ultra-modern designs, just like the EBB / shower bath basin combination seen above.

Linda Barker produce a stunning new range
Linda Barker is passionate about bathrooms, so when the opportunity came to work with a leading UK bathroom company like Bathroom Heaven she was delighted. Over the past few months she has worked together with Bathroom Heaven to produce a stunning, design driven range of bathroom accessories which should compliment any setting and decor. Speaking about the new range, Linda Barker said: “‘Design is integral to creating the perfect bathroom for your home. All too often our bathrooms are squeezed into tiny rooms or en suites off the bedroom and often this is when design needs to work its hardest.
“My bathroom range reflects what I would need from a great bathroom. The quality of the materials used is exceptional from the baths to the glass shower screens to the pillar taps and plugs. Bathrooms are intensely private places where we relax and find our sanctuary; I wanted the quality of this experience to be available for everybody, not just the privileged few. These products do just that, at a price that is competitive.”
Chinoiserie Beautifully handcrafted
The Chinoiserie series is the latest addition to the Fired Earth wall tile collection.
It takes it’s inspiration from the Chinoiserie wallpaper patterns of the early 19th century. Renowned ceramicist Alice Gibbons has worked with decorative artist Adam Calkin to create an extraordinary wall tile series.
The Chelsworth design is the first in the series to be launched. Individually handcrafted tiles, they work together to make an exquisite statement and, quite literally, transform a room.
The tiles for 4, 6, 12 and 36 tile panels which, when used together, make up the 72 tile master panel. This is turn, can be extended vertically and horizontally to form total ‘wallpaper’ arrangements.
On the company’s alliance with Linda, the CEO of Bathroom Heaven, Craig Dessoy said:
