Burgbad has brought a fresh look to bathrooms with the Mya range. Owned by VitrA, one of Burgbad is famed for its design ability.
Launched at the ISH show this year, and available now, Mya takes its inspiration from the wooden clothes horse of yesteryear, featuring light, open pieces in natural or dark oak veneer themed around hanging rails and practical drawers. The inspiration for the concept and design of Mya came from the tradition of Shaker furniture, the authentic aesthetics of which evolved from a combination of natural materials, craftsmanship and an appreciation of simplicity.
Designer Jeannette Altherr incorporated all of these aspects in her second collection for the German furniture specialist. The range includes a clothes rail with a hinged full-length mirror which can be used as a room divider or screen, a large freestanding towel rail roomy enough to take the biggest of bath sheets; a tall freestanding mirror with storage bags; vanities with storage boxes that fit neatly on the shelf below the basin; basins in a choice of sizes and round wall mirrors with illuminated frames.
Speaking of the launch Margaret Talbot of Burgbad says, “Mya is something genuinely different in bathroom furniture. Although it is a contemporary looking range, its inspiration harks back to the days when homeowners living in homes built without a bathroom used freestanding pieces around a fixed bath and basin to create a practical environment. Vanities are reminiscent of the Victorian washstand but brought right up to date with sleek modern lines and freestanding storage boxes fitted with soft leather pulls. The full-length mirror and clothes rail is a brilliant idea – few bathrooms have a place for clothes on hangers – just think of the convenience if you are getting dressed to go to work or out for the evening.”Burgbad | burgbad.com
