Bette launches BetteCraft Washbasin and Wins Design Plus Award at ISH
An artistic ‘shell’ washbasin
The new BetteCraft is a circular, concave washbasin, in a beautiful shell-inspired shape. BetteCraft combines the best of two worlds – the sculptural aesthetics of the finest porcelain shells, and the perfect material for the bathroom: glazed titanium steel. This beautifully-shaped washbasin received the Design Plus Award 2019 at ISH, the world's leading trade fair for the bathroom.
The delicate design language and brilliant surface of the BetteCraft are so flawless and artistic that it instantly creates the impression of Chinese porcelain. The German design offices of Tesseraux + Partner created the design which turned Bette's glazed titanium steel into a rounded shape that tapers towards the top and bottom.
This kind of shape is unusual in the extremely strong and hard glazed titanium-steel and is usually associated with soft clay and moulding hands at the potter's wheel. To achieve the design every BetteCraft basin is individually made by hand, then glazed on both the inside and outside.
Ideal for exclusive bathroom architecture
BetteCraft is available in a choice of two sizes (350 or 450 mm diameter). In addition to elegant white, Bette also offers the shell in a range of colours, including exclusive matt shades and in the new effect colours such as sparkling Midnight, velvety Blue Satin or iridescent Forest.
Bette also demonstrates a true passion for detail in the waste outlet cover, which is available on request in an enamelled version, making it perfect for any bathroom where good design is of tremendous importance.
An oasis of tranquillity in bathroom design
No beginning and no end; no edges or corners: the circle is the most perfectly balanced figure in geometry. In the new baths BettePond and BettePond Silhouette, Bette combines this perfect form with the perfect material in the bathroom – glazed titanium steel. Just immerse yourself for complete relaxation.
The circular BettePond was designed by Dominik Tesseraux (Tesseraux + Partner, Potsdam) as a reminder of the original shape of the tub. With a generous 150cm diameter, the circle is the perfect place for quiet contemplation and slowing down in everyday life – and a genuine oasis of tranquillity in the bathroom.
"The circle is an original symbol of mankind, and represents harmony, infinity and oneness," explains Sven Rensinghoff, Marketing Director at Bette. "Which is an extremely apt description of enjoying a bath, because time almost seems to stand still when we relax in the warm water, enabling us to find our way back to ourselves."
Counterpoint or sparkling pool
Depending on the room architecture and place, BettePond can be chosen either as a free-standing or built-in version. The free-standing version has the word "Silhouette" after the name and can be used as a specific style tool in the bathroom.”
BettePond Silhouette attracts admiring glances simply by its sheer presence, the result of the volume of the cylindrical body, the elegant material and the flawless, brilliant surface.
For those who prefer a more subtle look, but still want to enjoy the comfort of a circular bath, BettePond can also be inset into a surface. With its slender rim of only 8 mm, the bath then looks like a sparkling pool that is perfect for a peaceful, contemplative bath – with plenty of storage all round for shampoo, towels and soaps. Adding a whirl system to BettePond will increase the well-being even further.
In BetteFloor, Bette has a flush-to-floor shower area in its range that, thanks to its aesthetic and functional advantages, benefits everyone, and that also appeal for its high planning and investment safety and low maintenance costs.
Flexible in design
Shower areas in glazed titanium-steel are very pleasant, clean and safe to stand on.
Therefor flush-to-floor showers from Bette ensure optimum hygiene in the bathroom.
Along with all the usual standard shapes and sizes, many other formats and special forms such as hexagon or quadrants provide maximum freedom in design. Furthermore, the surface of this robust and impervious material – which Bette guarantees for 30 years – is permanently lovely, seamless and germ-free. It is easier and more hygienic to clean that, for instance, a tiled floor with a shower groove, which helps to reduce costs for the time required for cleaning and in the consumption of cleaning materials. Furthermore, BetteFloor shower areas are available in a wide range of sanitary and matt colours.
Anti-slip surface for a high level of walking comfort
The anti-slip enamel surface BetteAnti-Slip Pro, which can be combined with classic white and matt colours, is recommended for additional safety in the hotel shower. Imperceptibly roughened, its greater slip resistance (slip resistance class R10 to DIN 51130) over the entire surface guarantees the optimum safety while standing and walking in the shower.
Built-in water-tightness, sound insulation and inspection freedom
Something else that contributes towards the high level of investment safety is that, thanks to the sophisticated BetteInstallation System Universal, installation of the flush-to-floor shower areas is fast, water-tight and permanent.Furthermore, the installation system to DIN 18534-1 offers effective protection against moisture damage and provides a high level of sound insulation. One of the key advantages of this installation system is the freedom it offers for inspection tasks.
