The removal of unnecessary ornament was believed by the revolutionary Bauhaus movement of the 1920s to lead to a new functional beauty. Michelangelo had much the same idea four centuries earlier.
The continuation of form following function has been demonstrated throughout the Sottini collection by brilliant designers such as Robin Levien, Royal Designer for Industry, and internationally acclaimed Nilo Gioacchini and Franco Bertoli.
Each piece of Sottini porcelain has been carefully crafted and detailed to be as efficient as it is beautiful. The unique designs of the mixers and taps have been given the same consideration and are crafted from solid brass and plated in chromium.
A history of bathroom sculpture
The history of Sottini began in Italy with two brothers Antonio and Guiseppe Sottini, craftsmen who founded their business making fittings for bathrooms during the early twentieth century. Their dedication to traditional, handmade quality coupled with innovation made their business a success. Sottini products became renowned for their attention to detail and combined the best in classic design with the latest technology. Today Sottini is a company within the Ideal Standard family, catering for the specialist bathroom market. It has been available in the UK for 20 years. The Sottini collection continues to embody all the best features of design, quality and engineering, to bring Sottini customers products that will last and add value to their homes.
