That sinking feeling...

There’s much feeling and passion in Porcelanosa’s new high-end interchangeable bathroom range, Spirit, created by Spanish designer A-cero, whose founding partners Joaquin Torres and Rafael Llamazares launched the range at Porcelanosa’s Clerkenwell showroom last month. The firm, based in A Coruña, made its name with glamorous residential projects for Spain’s glitterati, and is not backward in coming forward – saying that marketing yourself in the right manner is as important as what you produce – hence its flashy website and constantly updating blog. In a similar vein its Spirit range is all about signature flourishes of angles and diagonals – an outrageously bold addition for any boutique hotel or flamboyant residential ensuite.
