Wallpapers, panels, fabrics and ceramic products clad the surfaces of bathrooms, adapting to any format and responding to specific functional requirements, such as waterproofing. But they do not overlook the matter of beauty, focusing on optical and 3D effects, lively patterns, games of reflection. In many cases, fine craftsmanship, artistic thinking, experimentation and technological prowess join forces in a single product.
Zambaiti Parati, in collaboration with Studio Fuksas, presents the new collection of wallpapers and wallcoverings. Five offerings involving experimentation with colors, graphics and decorations, rich in details and nuances, to interpret new trends in contemporary living. The Desert Rose wallpaper has been inspired by its namesake, with stitching like flower buds.
WET System is the wallcovering system patented by Wall&decò and designed for wet zones, since it is entirely waterproof. WET System prevents yellowing and stands up to impact and wear, as well as normal household detergents. It is a technical covering with a maximum thickness of 1.5 mm, composed of a fiberglass weave, a waterproofing primer and a system of transparent finishes, to guarantee excellent waterproofing. The surface is ideal for humid or wet areas such as bathrooms, shower cabins, gymnasiums and spas. In the image, Psyché, created by Paolo Badesco and Costantino Affuso, references Greek mythology, in which Psyche was often represented as a maiden with butterfly wings. And in fact ‘psyche’ means soul, vital spirit, but also butterfly.
Thanks to constant artistic and technical exploration (which leads to skillful use of materials and the finest printing techniques), WallPepper®/Group offers a vast range of products: besides the many graphic designs available in the catalogue, with personalized colors, it is possible to create entirely customized images, to respond to specific decorative requirements in projects. The wallpapers are only produced to measure, adapting each subject to the measurements of the wall to be ‘dressed,’ and they can be printed on all the materials of WallPepper®/Group (also suitable for places requiring antibacterial solutions). In the photo, Vinifera, designed by Alice Carmen Goga.
Decora is the collection of facings and floorings by Ragno with a sustainable spirit, utilizing 40% recycled material. The ceramic surfaces feature the innovative technological treatment CleanOut, providing active defense against germs and bacteria. Nature is the protagonist of the collection, through four different subjects capable of creating decorative patterns of great expressive force, to utilize to cover walls and floors. The extreme durability of porcelain stoneware with a thickness of 8.5 mm permits free alternation of backgrounds and decorative motifs.
Duscholux has expanded its PanElle collection of wallcoverings with five new patterns: PanElle Designs. The new decorations stand out for floral motifs and animalier prints. The patterns Palm, Blossom, Leafs (in the photo), Sea Life and Andalus bring nature into the bathroom.

The support material is a special polyurethane compound with 2 mm of vitreous acrylic on the surface.
