The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree at Abacus Bathrooms. Much thought went into the design of the new facilities in its HQ in the spa town of Harrogate, and on the evidence of its ladies’ loos, it looks like either Hans Hollein or John Hejduk could have produced the achingly satisfying symmetry. White Marble Elements basins complement the White Gloss Marble Trex3 tiles, bouncing down natural reflected light. There are lovely features too; the Trend 2 designer press panels, the wall mounted taps in brushed bronze and the LED lit recessed storage. Taken together, they’re a perfectly good reason to ‘give it five minutes if I were you’.
