Understated anodised alloy shower drains in five sleek colours

Standing in the shower in your birthday suit, the word ‘discreet’ might not immediately spring to mind, but keep looking down and if you’ve installed an Aquabocci Bläde shower drain, it might well apply. Sounds Italian, but Aquabocci is Australian and has set up in London, providing understated anodised alloy drains in five sleek colours – alloy because even stainless steel couldn’t handle the challengingly damp Aussie coast. Anyway, it must be a nice change for them to see metal bars set horizontally rather than vertically!
