BAGNO DESIGN and SANIPEX
Tell us about your company.
Sanipex was established in 1995 to provide highquality bathroom and plumbing products to the Middle East, complemented by professional support and service. Twenty years on, we still have the same business philosophy, albeit to a global marketplace, as the breadth of the Sanipex brand expands across Europe, Asia and Africa while strengthening its position as the market leader in its core markets.
What are your latest product lines?
Within our BagnoDesign brand we recently launched the Art furniture collection, which offers a new take on classically styled bathroom design. With a quality that is unmistakably Italian, Art captures the interior design trends of the moment in a timeless way. Our brassware offering also enjoys strong sales within the hotel market; the BagnoDesign M-Line mixers, which launched last year, are popular among specifiers due to the variety of finishes available that they cannot get
elsewhere. The range is available in chrome, brushed nickel, matte black, matte white and brushed copper. From an aesthetic point of view, the range gives designers the freedom to customise bathrooms with an individual, high-end finish.
What trends and technology are influencing bathroom design?
Basins as statement pieces are a key trend in the hotel bathroom, particularly those crafted from unusual materials such as metal or stone. Echoing this, there is a move away from chrome brassware towards
coloured finishes such as brushed nickel, copper and gold. Hoteliers now have more choice and colour is being seen more throughout the hotel bathroom, driven partly by the increased options on brassware finishes and also by the variety of furniture now available in bold colour ways.
How do your products differ from those on offer elsewhere?
Sanipex offers quality products for every area of a bathroom’s design, and in styles and price points to suit all requirements, bringing together trusted brand names to offer complete bathroom solution.
What major markets do you serve?
The international breadth of the Sanipex brand expands across Europe, Asia and Africa while strengthening its position as the market leader in its traditional Middle East markets.
