Dornbracht + Alape Showroom
New BCN headquarters
Renowned German sanitary wear manufacturers Dornbracht and Alape have jointly opened a new showroom in the uptown area of Barcelona (C / Folgueroles, 17-25). This change of location (the showroom was previously located on C/ Muntaner, corner of Bonanova) provides an opportunity to bring together in a single setting a space for design professionals, commercial offices and technical training. Situated within the much sought after Sarrià Sant Gervasi neighbourhood in a building designed by renowned architect Oscar Tusquets, the new showroom is easily accessible and well served by public transportation.
The showroom meaures 300 sq.m. and is organised over three floors with a spacious exhibition area for the existing range of products and new product launches. With direct access from the street for the public, the open plan offices are located on the first floor and the basement has been equipped with a space for technical training presentations, catering to trade and industry professionals. The building is entirely controlled by automated systems supplied by Gira (http://www.gira.com/es_ES/) and also includes Revox built-on speakers, two leading brands working in this sector which is also a key area for Dornbracht with their latest product launches.
Taking their inspiration from the revolutionary advances in mobile smartphones Dornbracht is moving towards incorporating digital technology within its sanitary and kitchen products, changing and improving our day to day habits. Everything tailored to individual needs.
The interior design is by Nuria Brun and Sergi Quilez (overlord design studio) who have managed to capture the 'brand philosophy' and includes all the iconic products synonymous with Dornbracht over the years, such as the legendary Tara, the MEM range of taps designed in collaboration with Sieger Design and Mike Meire. Dornbracht innovates by launching concepts and a philosophy rather than product lines as such: 'Ritual Architecture in the Bathroom', includes some of the most groundbreaking advances like the exclusive Sampling system, the sophisticated Cyprum finish as well as the innovative Footbath. Water Zones are on display in the area of the showroom dedicated to the kitchen while in the bathroom area includes the fully functioning ATT vertical showers with multiple panels fitted to the ceiling illustrating the unparalleled faucets. Sensor sky is exhibited in the front window, the model represents Dornbracht’s approach to the world of wellness. In addition, the product Alape corner shows the wide range of solutions to sink, as an ideal complement for Dornbracht creations.
The showroom is completed with a carefully selected range of furniture and lamp fittings including many local companies, such as Marset. The showroom is exclusively for design professionals and a previous appointment is advised.
