Contemporary Bathroom Furniture by Inbani

Arik Levy for Inbani

The Bowl Collection by Paris-based designer Arik Levy for Spanish manufacturer Inbani demonstrates a movement into contemporary and minimal bathroom furniture for modern living environments. Comprised primarily of standalone items, they can be arranged in various combinations, allowing for a flexible set-up depending on the space available.

Simple, geometric-inspired forms and frame-like structures provide open storage, adding an element of lightness to spaces. Versatile designs fulfil multiple functions – such as a mirror with hidden storage, or a storage basket that doubles as a stool and features a removable textile lining. Featuring a reduced graphic silhouette, the towel rack is a particular highlight – the unusual design turns a functional item into a piece of furniture.

Used in combination with marble and ceramic, rose-gold metalwork – devised specifically for this collection – adds an element of luxury while referencing traditional copper pipework.

With a focus on freestanding items and slim frames, bathroom furniture is moving closer to becoming more like conventional home furnishings – an approach seen during Milan 2014. This outlook fits with the wider shifting aesthetic of living environments as home sizes are reduced and boundaries are diffused, leading to a rise in multipurpose home products.
