Villeroy & Boch – Architects

Villeroy & Boch - Architects

When François Boch founded a small ceramics business in Audun-le-Tiche in Lorraine in 1748, he could scarcely have imagined that his company would one day help to shape European cultural and industrial history. In 1836, when he joined forces with his former rival Nicolas Villeroy, who had gained considerable experience in décor and copperplate printing, they created a powerful company which would develop into a cornerstone of its industry – Villeroy & Boch.

Through the development of new materials and manufacturing processes, and a refined flair for design, Villeroy & Boch has been a leading pioneer in the industry from its earliest days. Both the Villeroy and Boch families continue to work actively for the company, now an international complete supplier of everything needed in the bathroom.

Villeroy & Boch - Architects

Back in 1852, Villeroy & Boch designed the first floor tiles in the world to combine wear-resistance with attractive design. Pioneering work has long been a tradition at Villeroy & Boch, and this innovative spirit is reflected in countless design and innovation prizes that have been awarded over the years. Their architectural achievements include use of their internationally acclaimed Merzig terracotta in a castle belonging to Louis II of Bavaria, as well as the facade of the Amsterdam RIjksmuseum, which is also decorated with Villeroy & Boch tiled paintings. The floor of the stunning Cologne Cathedral is also decorated with a 1,300m² Villeroy & Boch mosaic.

To bring you the best possible innovations in bathrooms nowadays, Villeroy & Boch works closely with reputable architects, taking advantage of their expertise to transform their designs into ceramic products. Olbrich, Behrens, and Van de Velde are just three of many architects that have worked with Villeroy & Boch for over 250 years. Their commitment to the highest design standards is further manifested in internationally renowned partners such as Marcel Wanders, Roberto Capucci, Sebastian Conran, Steve Leung, Frog Design, and Luigi Colani, the latter having created a completely new bathroom concept in 1975 that defined the bathroom as a living area for the first time.

Over the decades since, this new approach has exerted a major influence on the entire bathroom industry, and now Villeroy & Boch can offer new and exceptional ceramic products of the highest quality and durability over and over again.

New Villeroy & Boch Octagon Basin

One doesn’t usually expect to find a work of art taking pride of place in the bathroom, but this is precisely what the new octagon washbasin by Villeroy & Boch is. Pushing the boundaries of innovation, the washbasin takes bathroom design into an entirely new dimension. It makes time spent in the bathroom an experience of cleansing the mind as well as the body – refreshing jaded senses and renewing tired minds.

New-Octagon-Basin1

The spectacular octagonal washbasin demonstrates a completely fresh approach to the bathroom’s mundane traditional function. By transforming the practical to the sublime, it shows that the modern bathroom is no longer merely a place of purpose, but also a place of enjoyment.

A masterpiece of precision, both technologically and artistically speaking, the washbasin uses Villeroy & Boch’s state-of-the-art TitanCeram, a new ceramic material designed with hygiene and beauty in mind.

New-Octagon-Basin2

The octagon washbasin has a free-standing pedestal, and is offered in three different finishes to complement any high-quality bathroom design.

The natural textures of mocha leather, dark chestnut and smoky slate lend nature’s own exquisite forms to the finish of the pedestal. Encircled with a copper ring between the finish and the basin, the unit is a unique expression of all that nature intended – freshness, cleanliness and beauty.
To complete the picture of stylish elegance, the octagonal washbasin can be teamed with Villeroy & Boch Champagne tap fittings.

New Octagon Basin3

Individual and innovative, the octagonal shape of the basin reflects a beauty and precision not usually associated with health and wellness, resulting in elevating it to a whole new level.

Anti bacterial WC technology

Bringing a new meaning to bathroom hygiene, cleanliness and comfort Villeroy and Boch offer ground-breaking technology to take your well-being to a new and safer level.

vi-connect

Gone are the gremlins of dirt and mould, no longer hiding in dark corners …simply because there are no corners for them to hide in. Cleanliness is addressed with a triple approach and carefully thought out design. The WC bowl is rimless and therefore easier to clean, reducing the risk of bacterial growth and unsightly stains. This fact combined with a super- efficient, no splash flush, quietly cleanses the entire bowl.

Hygiene is further maintained by anti-bacterial technology. A new innovative glaze inhibits the growth of bacteria by 99.9%, whilst dirt repellent surfaces using a ceramic plus finish again inhibits the growth of bacteria. It is easy to clean and resistant to acids and alkalis. Indeed, a champion of hygiene is offered to take the modern bathroom to a new level of luxury, making it suitable for all high quality sustainable developments and private residences.

By bringing out the new Artis range of surface mounted washbasins for 2015/16, which are suitable for new high luxury developments, they have, once again, presented innovation combined with imagination to create bathrooms of stunning elegance and beauty. Practically speaking, Villeroy and Boch have taken the most advanced technology in ceramics and used it to create bathrooms not just designed for purpose, but also for pleasure.
The timeless aesthetics of the Artis collection offer a choice of four geometrical shapes of washbasin, allowing personal preference and expressions of taste to go hand in hand with practicality and style. Geometry is given a different voice, taking a basic shape and giving it fresh form and new sophistication without losing the purity of its line and precision. Crisp and decisive lines are used to create a round, square, oval or rectangular bowl. Deep and luxurious, the bowls are integral to the practicality of the bathroom….yet remaining an indulgent expression of necessity.

New Legato and Vivia bathroom collections

The search for a fresh purity and distinctiveness in bathroom design can come to rest in the expression of almost a basic straightforwardness found in the clear cut lines of the Legato bathroom. However, that would be under-stating the sophisticated expression of straight lines and the illusory simplicity which is so dominant in this collection. There is a boldness and almost an audacity in the way in which elegance is cradled in functionality. Suitable for high-end luxury, new developments, the Legato bathroom collection of 2015/16 is a Villeroy and Boch triumph, and an example of their long running contribution to homes of class and distinction.

legato

The washbasin tantalises, seeming to float above the vanity unit. At night the effect can be further enhanced by LED lighting. Appearing shallow, but in fact a deep basin, it is both practical and elegant, and can be fitted with or without a vanity unit beneath it.

Soaking in deep meditation or sharing the luxurious space of the matching acrylic bath is your choice. Complemented by the same bold angles the bath comes in a choice of four different sizes. The mood is up to you.
Our discreet and practical bidets and WCs can be either floor standing or wall mounted- without handles, fast cleaning and economical, in their own quiet way they contribute to the efficiency of the bathroom.

Furniture finish is your own personal statement, stamping your individuality on a masterpiece of creativity. From a choice of eight different finishes as well as the latest white wood finish, we are confident that the Villeroy and Boch Legato bathroom collection will satisfy your search for a bathroom of simplicity and refinement.

The Vivia bathroom collection

The Villeroy and Boch Vivia collection takes convenience a step further and addresses the individual’s needs and comfort in a modern bathroom, by adding ingenious extras. The need for more space is catered for with a deep washbasin, spacious shelf and console area which can be used seated. A pull out spray fitted on the tap makes shampooing hair easy, whilst the stool hides extra storage space. Shower use is simplified by the flush floor and the anti slip shower stool. Again, extra storage is hidden behind a door integrated in the shower panel.

Vivia

Although the Vivia collection is practical, style and luxury are not compromised.

New Classic Style Homage Range

Hommage1

Thankfully some things are history. Once bathrooms were cold, drab places where you didn’t linger any longer than was necessary. Even when they moved from the draughty privy to an upstairs room or a tin tub in front of the fire they were still places of relative torture and endurance. Even today many bathrooms can be spartan and uninviting..…but they don’t have to be.

There was another kind of bathroom in the 19th and early 20th century, which was characterised by grace and charm. Villeroy and Boch took the history and the innate elegance found in many stately homes and upper class houses and updated it to form the classic Hommage bathroom collection….. and now, yet again, in the new 2015/16 collection, they have extended the range to include more choice to offer you a bathroom of timeless, traditional beauty.
Offering a completely new look, all bathroom furniture is now also available in white matt lacquer and when teamed with the new black marble washbasin counter-tops they recreate the epitome of distinction and quality which was found in a bygone era.

hommage2

Updated with practical, yet traditionally styled fixtures using gleaming brass, rich wood, or marble, a bathroom echoing centuries of integrity and vintage appeal will enhance the modern high-end luxury new development, giving it a unique flavour which is also just at home in a more traditional home or refurbishment of the highest quality.

Somehow history seems to have an nostalgic and enduring appeal to the senses, which Villeroy and Boch have appreciated and used to grace the bathrooms of today. Modernity and tradition have been united to offer us bathrooms of practicality and style.
