Bath Sculpture
In conjunction with Sieger Design, Dornbracht has developed a faucet line that resembles angular modern sculpture. The Supernova tub set is part of a luxury collection that includes a cascade bath spout, floor-mounted basin mixer and more. Available in polished chrome (pictured), platinum and champagne.www.dornbracht.com.

From Afar

After half a century of steam-bath innovation, ThermaSol has added a high-tech twist to the at-home spa experience. Easy Start Control lets users program the steam bath outside of the shower and up to 50 feet away from the steam generator, ushering in a new age of bathing empowerment. These barely visible digital dials are available in 14 finishes. www.thermasol.com.
Graphic Art
A modern sensibility and bold design combine with lustrous traditional Japanese glazes to create Ann Sacks’s line of Koi graphic ceramic tile. Its tone-on-tone surface has random striations; glazes are available in sharkskin (pictured), iron rod and brick.www.annsacks.com.
Fun Finishes
SONIA’s inventive Play Collection line of bath furnishings comes in a variety of creative finishes. For a palette of woods, choose Play Wood; for a color palette, opt for the satin-lacquered Play Color finishes. Or combine the two palettes with Play Concept (shown above in Sunny). The Touch option will give pieces a matte surface that’s water repellant and smudge free. www.sonia-sa.com.


All Aglow

Ideal for flanking either side of a vanity or bath area, Kallista’s sleek, lustrous Jeton Wall Sconce recalls early 20th-century Modernism. Its thermo-formed Optix shade resists impact and evenly defracts light to create a soft glow. Available in chrome, nickel silver (shown), brushed nickel, black nickel and matte gold. www.kallista.com.

Under Control
With GROHE’s new Essence High-Profile Lavatory Faucet, each cylindrical component calls to mind the graceful shape and flow of streaming water. A Teflon-covered cartridge inside the faucet controls flow level and noise, creating a soothing sound; the cartridge is fitted with ceramic alloy discs and constructed of heavy cast-brass. www.grohe.com.
In Hot Water
Customized water temperature is a handy new feature of JACLO’s Cylindrico 5 Shower Set with Lever Handles. In-wall limit stops, set during installation, protect children from skin-scalding water. A Thermostatic valve, which can be set once and left unchanged, controls the mix of hot and cold water, while a separate valve controls volume. www.jaclo.com.
First Choice 

KOHLER’s Flipside Handshower turns traditional showering on its head. Its dial allows bathers to choose among four types of water flow: Kotton’s soft and misty spray, Koverage’s conventional stream, Komotion’s stronger, rainier flow and Kurrent’s concentrated deluge. www.kohler.com.
