Recently, I had a conversation with my boyfriend about the design world’s overreliance on the word “sexy.” Of course, there are perfectly legitimate uses for it, I just fear it’s becoming a too-convenient shorthand (like “pops of color”) to convey meaning. I’ve tried to limit it in my vocab, but how else to describe the Italian luxury house Bisazza’s new bathroom division, Bisazza Bagno? Because this collection is way sexy. That gleaming gold. Those clean lines. The jewel-like washbasins. Seriously.
The bathtubs have hidden storage compartments and some of those sinks even have lamps and magnifying mirrors built right into them. I swoon! Spanish designer Jaime Hayon is responsible for the collection’s sleek, sensual, ’30s-glam-meets-Scandinavian look (Glamdinavian?). Therefore, he is also responsible for turning me into a “sexy”-spouting hypocrite. (Thanks a lot, Jaime!)
