The art of achieving a beautifully sustainable bathroom is possible this 2020 with Kaldewei. With over 100 years’ experience across four generations, the brand is a pioneer of sustainable manufacturing with a vast portfolio of over 600 shower surfaces, washbasins and baths, and over 150 design awards, making it the preferred partner for sustainable bathroom design.
Notably, Kaldewei steel enamel bathroom solutions are not only 100% recyclable, but the brand carefully avoids the use of colour additives during the production process. As a highly sustainable material that contributes to conserving resources, steel enamel is ideal for sustainably designed buildings and projects. Recognised for their forward-thinking, Kaldewei not only won a Green Good Design Award in 2017 (one of the world’s most prestigious sustainability awards), but has been awarded an Environmental Product Declaration that complies with ISO 14025 and EN 15804. It is also a member of the US Green Building Council LEED.
Alongside this, Kaldewei’s superior steel enamel fuses steel and glass for exceptional durability and showcases a lasting, beautiful sheen that will turn the heads of even the most discerning and aesthetically-concerned designers. Built to last, the smooth surface of Kaldewei’s steel enamel works hard to show no scratches and has no place for dirt or bacteria to settle, despite frequent use, making the need for aggressive, ecologically harmful cleaning products redundant. Underlining this exceptional quality is the brand’s 30-year warranty, ensuring their bathroom solutions continue to look as beautiful as they did on the day of installation.
The brand’s approach to colour is also something they take very seriously, as they believe it is key for creating a sense of space. The Coordinated Colours Collection from Kaldewei not only covers all shower surfaces and washbasins, but selected baths too. Including a selection of natural matt shades, from earthy brown hues to greys, soft creams and elegant Lava Black, combined with Kaldewei’s material palette, these tones provide a harmoniously elegant effect within a home’s bathroom and aid the creation of individuality.
Kaldewei Miena washbasins, designed by Anke Salomon, should be considered too. Appearing fine edged and delicate, but constructed with a superior single layer of steel enamel, the Miena washbasin is available in both round and square models. Elegantly freestanding and conveniently not restricted to the dimensions of bathroom furniture, these designs will work seamlessly when paired with Kaldewei’s floor-level shower surface (try the multi award-winning Kaldewei Nexsys shower surface) and classic freestanding Meisterstück Classic Duo Oval bath.
Delivering on flexible design solutions that are built to last, Kaldewei’s ethical and ecological commitment to the environment, alongside their sustainable material choices mean their work supports the UK government’s carbon neutral 2050 target, something that here at enki we applaud.
