New La Dolce Vita range from Ideal Standard

Bathroom manufacturer Ideal Standard has unveiled its new La Dolce Vita range – the latest addition to its design-led Atelier Collections. The new range has been designed by chief design officer Roberto Palomba and has been inspired by its famous namesake expression – the sweet life.

Aesthetically, La Dolce Vita features a balance between geometric shapes and forms inspired by the natural environment. The accompanying vanities are available in 6 different sizes, including standout asymmetric models that offer a practical storage surface. As a statement piece, the freestanding bathtub commands the space in any bathroom, but still echoes the understated elegance of a relaxed Italian lifestyle.

Speaking about the new La Dolce Vita range from Ideal Standard, Chief design officer of Ideal Standard Roberto Palomba said: “With this new range, I aimed to reinterpret La Dolce Vita. The phrase conjures a lifestyle where there is time to savour the beauty in small things; in the everyday. La Dolce Vita creates a tactile, expressive space whose sensuality sparks inspiration and dreams, where new ideas are born. It was important to me to capture this essence and bring it to life in every detail of this collection.”

Fittings and accessories follow the same lead, with basin mixers, vessel mixers, wall-mounted models, bath and shower mixers sharing the same design DNA. The shower system options offer an elegant stem-like design too, with a minimalist arch. All of the fittings are available in Classic Chrome or Ideal Standard’s durable PVD colours: Brushed Gold, Magnetic Grey and Silver Storm. WCs feature AquaBlade technology (or RimLS+ on wall-hung bowls) for flushing performance and improved hygiene, while the FirmaFlow ceramic cartridges in the taps ensure durability.

The new La Dolce Vita range from Ideal Standard features solutions for the entire bathroom, from vanities and vessels, toilets, bidets and bathtubs to mixer taps, shower products and accessories. What’s more, the new range is compatible with Ideal Standard’s wider product portfolio, thanks to the company’s Singular philosophy, meaning designers and customers can indulge in whatever suits their vision. 

Launching alongside La Dolce Vita, Ideal Standard’s Finesse furniture series perfectly complements the range but is also compatible with many other collections, offering endless possibilities to homeowners and designers alike. Finesse features a modern design with subtle, recessed handles and a choice of four matt colours and two wood finishes, with one, two or four-drawer options, open shelving, and a variety of depths to fit different room sizes and ceramic collections. Sustainability was a crucial consideration during development, which is why the entire range is crafted from Chain of Custody-certified wood sourced from sustainably managed forests.
