This new bath furnishing collection from Drummonds includes the cast-iron Wandle bath, the Double Ladybower sink console, and the Leawood tap and shower collection, all designed as part of an ongoing collaboration with Swedish interior architect and product designer Martin Brudnizki.
The Leawood tap and shower collection features a hallmark flattened end on the lever controls, derived by careful observation of how tools were developed to comfortably fit the human hand. Available in polished brass, polished chrome, and polished nickel, the collection includes a floor-standing bath and shower mixer, shower controls, and wall-mounted and deck-mounted basin taps. The Double Ladybower sink console features white marble, contemporary lines, good storage space, and details such as the bent towel rail.
Finally, the Wandle tub was ergonomically designed around the human form, with the sloping end the same width from top to bottom in order to accomodate a bather’s shoulders and allow a bather’s head to rest comfortably. Wandle comes designed either with feet inspired by iron beams in a Victorian pump house, or a modern skirt which echoes the bulbous bow of a ship. Like all of Drummonds’ cast-iron baths, each Wandle is made in a traditional process involving casting the raw metal and then shot-blasting and enameling the material with a dry-frit process that gives a snow white, durable enamel surface. The exterior can be painted, primed, or polished to order.
