Roca returned to KBB this year with a new collection of sanitaryware and furniture, which follows Roca’s ethos of “style with substance, form with function”.
Making their first appearance in the UK, products on display included brand new suites, basins, brassware, furniture, shower enclosures and bathroom accessories. The updated Veranda series and Thesis brassware, which generated a lot of interest at 100% Design last year, were also present at this year’s show.
One of the highlights of the new 2008 collection is the Khroma suite and furniture series. Designed by Roca’s in-house team Khroma combines vitreous china with elements of polyurethane foam upholstery in four distinctive hues.
These are passion red, oxygen blue, street grey and silver grey – all chosen by Vincent Grégoire from Nelly Rodi. The series injects personality and colour to an ordinary bathroom, and the colour co-ordinated furniture comes in high gloss or natural oak and wenge wood finishes.
It comprises a drawer unit with casters, and a one-piece base unit with mirror and light, available for installation with wall-hung or over-countertop basins.
