In an update to last issue’s Compendium piece on their research findings surrounding washroom design, it transpires in the wash that while Justin and Fraser Lovell are 100% behind their new workplace washroom brand Splash Lab, just to clarify, they’re still actively involved with family washroom firm Lovair. Now that’s cleared up, we can draw your attention to their slinky, minimal range specified by architect ATELIERwest for the newly opened Bottles Italian wine bar in London’s Old Spitalfields Market. Stainless steel but bold as brass, the firm has big plans. In addition to a Clerkenwell showroom, it will be opening one in Los Angeles too.
