24 Savile Row in the heart of Mayfair houses the Italian luxury-clothing brand Dsquared2 on two floors of the office and retail tower. Designed by renowned architectural firm EPR, with a striking glazed façade created by ceramic artist Kate Malone, the building is a tribute to Savile Row’s tailoring heritage, clad in 10,000 hand-glazed ceramic tiles and positioned on a decorative sand-cast bronze plinth. Inside, the restroom features the customizable Monolith Basin from The Splash Lab.
The bathroom design is based around the concept of the “superloo”, a space-saving restroom module that brings a full suite of eliminating, cleaning, and grooming fixtures that any a normal restroom would feature into a single, contained unit. Because of the compactness of the superloo, EPR needed an innovative basin solution that could present an intuitive interface and help ensure that each unit presented a complete restroom experience. The monolith basin from The Splash Lab fit the bill and complied with the additional challenge of ensuring that the sense of artistry defining the building’s façade was carried on throughout the project.
The Splash Lab worked closely with architect Stephen Pey of EPR to further extend the custom capabilities of the Monolith Basin System made possible by the architect-informed design process at The Splash Lab. Each superloo was fitted with a single-user Monolith sink that had an adapted construction to fit an inset toilet paper holder. Each Monolith was CNC-machined and hand-finished to include the space-saving details, resulting in a cohesive and efficient restroom scheme.
