A play on light and colors: Glass sets design trends

Glass is a unique material. When light meets the surface of glass, it reflects the color spectrum in a fascinating manner. In contemporary architecture, glass offers innovative opportunities to design spatial transitions and borders. Above all else, it permits the versatile application of light, which then becomes an independent element of the architecture.

High-tech meets luxury

With its new handles for CL.1, Dornbracht is applying the architectural relevance of glass to the bathroom. The smooth surfaces and ambitiously dynamic design of the fitting series are complemented by handles made of crystal, in both smooth and textured looks. The combination of the highest standards in manufacturing and the use of top-quality materials has produced a unique result – the innovative accentuation of contemporary bathroom fittings.

Crystal for an extravagant bathroom interior

CL.1 represents progressive individuality and is versatile thanks to its various surface finishes and handle types. The handles made of Swarovski® crystal convey an elegant and sculptured look inspired by architecture and fashion, making the bathroom ambiance especially extravagant. Their surface feel and appearance are as flawless as they are distinctive. Depending on the aspect and lighting, they give rise to infinitely exciting effects featuring multi-colored reflections of light. And through its interplay with the crystal, ambient light represents an additional design level.

The crystal handles are available in asymmetrical designs or with filigree fluting. The asymmetrical handles are available as a tri-colored variant, generating expressive light effects. In the translucent crystal variant, the handles convey a restrained elegance. A futuristic highlight is set by the filigree chartreuse fluted texture inspired by textile material.

The series is available in the surface finishes Chrome, Platinum matt, and the new Dark Platinum matt. Its lightly-brushed silk matte color appears warm, soft and down to earth, setting a slightly archaic tone in the bathroom, while the crystal handles lend an elegant touch to the overall appearance.
