Nick Munro takes ‘his first foray into the bathroom industry’ with Waters Baths of Ashbourne

Bath specialist Waters Baths of Ashbourne has announced its newly-forged partnership with renowned British designer, Nick Munro. The creative collaboration will see Munro take ‘his first foray into the bathroom industry’ and craft a striking new range of freestanding baths and basins for Waters Baths of Ashbourne’s ever-growing portfolio.

Characterised by their ‘modern sculptural form and subtle, organic detailing,’ as said Waters Baths of Ahsbourne, the new statement baths and basins will seamlessly combine the brand’s technical expertise and manufacturing ability with Nick Munro’s signature British style – characterised by its elegance and poise. The new range will be comprised of stunning stone freestanding bath tubs and matching basins, each of which is to be crafted from Lucite acrylic or Waters’ DQ Cast material – a combination of crushed quartz and limestone with modern polymers and UV stabilisers and given a hand-polished matt white finish. The Waters Baths of Ashbourne-Nick Munro collection will officially launch in early 2019.

Waters Baths of Ashbourne’s Managing Director, Anthony Smith, commented on the news: “This is an exciting new development for Waters Baths of Ashbourne and we’re delighted to be working with Nick on this new statement range. Nick is a natural fit for Waters Baths of Ashbourne and he shares our vision to create beautiful, iconic baths of unrivalled comfort.”

Designer Nick Munro discussed his ideas for the project: “We’re looking to create something that is very contemporary, sculptural and artistic, something that is recognisably a Waters Baths of Ashbourne product. Artistically there is a real connection between Waters Baths of Ashbourne and myself in terms of the ambition of the project. From a quality, cultural, and precision point of view there’s a real synergy between us and these are all the right qualities you need to make a project successful.”
