Renovated classic-styled bathrooms with the Lignage and Liem collections from Noken

The company from Porcelanosa Group banks on warm tones, soft shapes and harmonious combinations on a geometry basis.

The oval mirrors, copper and metallic finishes and the XTONE sintered mineral compact are some of the main designs from the company.

Inspired by 1930 industrial models, Noken, the bathroom company from PORCELANOSA Group, makes time fade away by renewing the vintage style in each of its collections. One of them is none other than Liem, the 120cm wide bathroom furniture, which is available in two versions: wall hung and floor standing; in grey matt and earth matt finishes.

With legs and mouldings made of walnut wood, this piece of furniture represents the “total design” and it includes XTONE in the Liem Grey Silk finish (grey matt version), the Ars Beige Nature finish (furniture in sand), and the mirror and countertop basin from the same collection. XTONE is a sintered mineral surface which is highly resistant, and it has easy-to-clean properties and very low maintenance.

A mirror of reality

Liem brings a minimalist oval-shaped mirror in walnut veneer. We are dealing with a piece which brings the latest techniques of modern design together with wood craftwork, while championing that methodology of handmade. One of the other standout pieces is the countertop basin, whose 7mm thin edge comes in two finishes: white gloss and white matt. The geometric design of this structure stands out because of its rounded edges, along with the natural shine that Premium Noken Ceramic gives off.

Lignage by Ramón Esteve: taps with their very own shine

The Valencian architect and designer, Ramón Esteve, goes back to Ancient Rome through his new Lignage taps. Exclusively designed for Noken, this collection reinterprets the old pipework from the Roman Empire through metallic colours and different formats: Single lever, three-piece battery and concealed three-piece battery.

Its three finishes: brushed copper, gloss gold and chrome; portray that duality between the ancient and the modern world, while offering a historical retrospective of design with original smooth and textured levers. “As a result of a severe formal synthesis which is rich in detail, Lignage not only fits in a contemporary space but also in a traditional atmosphere. The distinctive palette of finishes makes each application meet the style of the space it is in, and furthermore, it gives it a strong character which is enhanced by the unique design of the piece”, defined Ramón Esteve.

The IF Design Awards

The Lignage taps picked up the award for Best Design at the IF Design Awards 2019 in the category of Products/Bathrooms. The jury, made up of more than 60 designers and experts from this field, picked this collection from Noken out as being the most standout against the 6.400 designs that were originally submitted.
