Current developments

The innovations are an expression of Alape’s material expertise in working with glazed steel for 125 years now. In addition to convincing designs for holistic washplace solutions, surfaces play an important role. For example, all white basins are now available with “ProShield” and offer effective protection against bacteria and fungi. New matt surfaces for selected basins bring originality to the bathroom with their colour and feel.

Innovations in detail


In times when hygiene is particularly demanded, we also recognise our social responsibility. Washstands made of glazed steel are already particularly hygienic, thanks to their sealed and non-porous surface. The long years of experience with antibacterial surfaces, which we have gained in sensitive environments such as hospitals or kindergartens, enable us to optimise the surface characteristics of our basins even further. Bacteria and fungi no longer stand a chance with the antibacterial “ProShield” glaze.

Matt black

Dark colours bring intimicy. Therefore, where does matt black fit better than in the bathroom? The colour of the extravagant, the mysterious, the unfathomable magically attracts us. As a special colour since years available, matt black will soon be available for selected basins in the standard programme.


»SONDO« makes the everyday ritual of washing to a sensual experience. Made of three millimetre glazed steel »SONDO« combines functionality, quality and purist design with aesthetic form. In the new basin size with a diameter of 400 mm, Sondo is now also available in various finishes for smaller washplaces.


The dish basin “Stream” meets the pulse of time: it features a classic shape, a comfortable depth, spacious proportions and a recess which is based on the modern design language of architecture and engineering. New finishes will soon be available: Powdery terra colours or velvety matt black.

Accesories in white

The shelf and design mirror will soon also be available in matt white. They thus perfectly round off the harmonious overall appearance at the washplace and blends harmoniously or consciously contrasts with various interiors.


“Steel19” brings the pragmatism of the classic bucket sink into the bathroom: the characteristic unit consisting of enamelled splashback and sink combined with the filigree steel frame sets industrial accents. Steel19 is available for the guest bathroom and in a large version for the main bathroom.


“Work.Frame” brings contrast into every bathroom and leaves plenty of room for individual interior design. This is achieved through a reduced and precise design language. The exact and high-quality execution has thereby been implemented down to the last detail.

Bucket sink bicolor

The two-tone nature of the Bicolor bucket sink transforms this classic into a trendsetter. The all-rounder for home and workrooms thereby receives a contemporary look which adapts to any interior.

Folio oak

The Alape washplaces in the Folio series radiate a unique lightness and with their timeless design, they integrate perfectly into any bathroom. The elegant washplace is now also available in a “brushed oak” finish. It is available for the main bathroom variants, the guest bathroom variants and for the new tall cupboard.
