is influenced by Victorian plumbing, kids’ drawings and pop art  VitrA The engineered quality and sturdy dependability of Victorian bathrooms inspired the new ‘Liquid’ bathroom range by VitrA andTom Dixon. ‘I like the feeling of permanence in Victorian bathrooms, with their big chunky taps and fat tubes,’ says Dixon. ‘It’s an aesthetic that’s closely connected to a whole tradition of British engineering, which influenced the development of the bathroom.’

Like much of Dixon’s recent work, the new collection – sanitaryware, furniture, taps, tiles, shower systems, and accessories, all designed to either work together or as stand-alone pieces – is aligned with his increasing use of round-edged and bulbous forms. The designs for ‘Liquid’, he explains, are influenced by elements of pop art, such as the work of Claes Oldenburg, Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dog, and Barbara Hepworth’s rounded, marble forms.

Whether it’s seeing an ex unexpectedly or having a mini crisis of confidence while fixing your outfit in the mirror, chances are that there’s a woman you’ve never met in any public bathroom who will inflate your ego, likely tell you to “dump him” and be the honest, frank reality check you need.
