Edge off the orient

Anyone who’s experienced the deep cleaning properties of a Turkish bath will be aware of their famed abilities to get into all the corners – and maybe that was at the back of Ross Lovegrove’s mind when he came up with his Istanbul sanitaryware range. Designed for Turkish bathroom brand VitrA, the famously blobby designer naturally chose to do away with corners altogether. Originally launched at Milan’s Salon de Mobile in 2018, he’s been adding to the range over time, notably with a new vanity basin with its curious ceramic lip and fine, metallic legs and a fantastic looking loo brush that looks like a 21st century reimagining of the 1957 Russian Sputnik I satellite. But PiP’s still enjoying the look of his water-inspired floor-standing washbasin, despite the suitably eyewatering £1483 pricetag.
