Distinguished Italian kitchen designer Strato (www.stratocucine.com) believes the bath serves both body and soul. With an exquisitely pure and essential collection of tiles and fittings, Strato-Bagno has turned the bathroom ritual into a profound, sensorial experience. The craftsmanship is sublime. Each piece is hand-crafted from rare stone, metal or wood. This double sink made of sandstone comes in colour options (including cappuccino and mocha), with stainless steel feet and a stainless steel drainage system (tailor-made sizes and finishing available). It sells for $173,000 (excluding taps). Next to the double sink are two shelf units made of palisander wood with crystal glass shelves ($32,100). The mirror by Strato is $25,200. Trays of palisander wood with titanium are $7,280 each. View the Strato range at Design and Distribution Link (tel: 2838 8299) or Design Link (tel: 3113 8728).
