Alape's "Folio" range now also includes solutions for very small bathrooms and guest bathrooms

In the past year, Alape successfully launched its innovative and puristic "Folio" washplace. The elegant design combines the washstand with matching furniture that adds extra storage space for bathroom accessories. It is the result of high-precision manufacturing with exact geometry, minimal radii and flat surfaces: A delicate 3 mm thick glazed steel cover wraps tightly around the washstand and encases it like a wafer-thin sheet. Thanks to a newly developed process technology, the possibilities of the material have been exploited to their fullest.

The concept, which was introduced last year, was extended by two new products with small dimensions for perfect integration into very small bathrooms and guest bathrooms – an area that forms part of Alape's key competencies, whereby the company strives to provide diverse and unique solutions.

Even the washplaces that have been developed specifically for guest bathrooms exude the same lightness of the entire product line and thanks to their timeless design, they integrate perfectly into any bathroom. A striking feature is their distinctive shape as an isosceles cube with a circular mould, which differs from that of the main bathroom solution.

The new products also offer specific advantages and optimum functionality: Thanks to a door system instead of a drawer and by fitting a space-saving siphon, the storage space is exploited to its fullest extent. The handle-less furniture is equipped with a door stop on the left and a push-to-open mechanism. Instead of conventional hinge systems, we have integrated elegant, titanium-coloured hinges flush into the frame to further emphasise the high quality of the washplace and for additional space optimisation.
The front of the frame is presented with a silk-matt varnish finish which is available in the five standard colour options of the Folio range. The two subtle brown tones - Moonstone and Shadow Earth - integrate perfectly into a quiet living ambiance, whereas the two vibrant tones - Grey Fossil and Aubergine - set accents in the bathroom. Classic White rounds off the colour palette.
Thanks to Alape's new small washplaces, you can now design and supplement the furnishing of all bathrooms in your home with a consistent "Folio" design.

The product is available as a rectangular washplace with or without tap hole, measuring 381 x 363 mm and with a height of 361 mm. The circular basin mould is placed centrally and has a drain valve with a white glazed cover.
