Doors Dressed with Light

Dornbracht Launches Art-luxe Bathroom FittingsFor architects and interior designers, light has always been a crucial element in design, from the jewel-like stained glass of medieval cathedrals to the ultra-modern reflective glass towers of an urban skyline. Dornbracht’s new CL.1 series takes inspiration from architecture, as well as from fashion, to transform the bathroom door handle.

Dornbracht door handle CL.1, Made with Crystals from SwarovskiUnlike traditional door handles, where crystals might simply embellish, the CL.1 features a single, precision-cut, custom crystal as an integral part of the structure. Dornbracht brings together state-of-the-art technology, luxury, and uncompromising craftsmanship so that they speak as one in a pure design language.

One is transparent and the other is tri-colored, both designed so that the play of reflections and shadows enhance their form. The third model is a chic chartreuse-colored oblong crystal, its rippled surface reminiscent of pleated fabric.

The overall effect is as harmonious as it is visually arresting. Dress your bathroom with a touch of class.
