Heritage reimagined in a stunning bathware collection

September 19, 2017

apaiser is excited to unveil its latest and arguably most ground-breaking collection to date – SAMPAN – developed in collaboration with leading international design firm, WOHA.

The Sampan collection applies the strikingly unique tapered shapes of the traditional boats of the Singapore waterfront to a bathware collection of revolutionary design. Reflected in a series of baths and basins, as well as an innovative ‘shower bath’, these unique designs transform bathing into something more akin to a romantic journey!

Singapore is the home of WOHA, and also the Asia-Pacific base of Australian bathware company, apaiser. The WOHA studio, located in a conserved cluster of traditional ‘shophouses’ behind Boat Quay, is where the iconic sampan boats were once moored in great numbers on the Singapore. river These areas, steeped in colonial history, are at the heart of the story behind the Sampan collection.

Sampan – the Cantonese word meaning three boards – describes these uniquely designed but simple form of watercraft, fashioned by hand from a flat plank of wood as its base, with two angled planks making up the sides. Celebration of this vanishing heritage was the direct inspiration for this stunning new bathware collection. Like all apaiser designs, each piece is hand crafted using the innovative material exclusive to apaiser known as apaisermarble. Sampan comes in four elegant shades – Glacier, Diamond White, Starry Night and Luxe Grey – the five designs across baths and basins sized to suit a variety of interior applications, with the unique ‘shower bath’ a particularly clever innovation which responds to more limited spatial options given its dual purpose form. Sampan became part of WOHA’s dedicated submission for MAISON OBJET PARIS, 2017, and which has ultimately seen this forward-thinking firm selected as ‘Designer of the Year – Asia’, an award to be officially announced on September 08, 2017. The Sampan collection itself will be available immediately thereafter, via apaiser showrooms globally (or visit www.apaiser.com/sampan).

Jackalope hotel’s debut property has set out to create a new standard in luxury accommodation on Victoria’s Mornington Set on one of the region’s most pristine vineyards, this stunning hotel is unique in both destination and design catering for its discerning local and international clientele.

The luxury appeal of apaiser’s material and its stunning bath design, coupled with the hand-crafted finish, meant apaiser was uniquely placed to satisfy the vision of the designers and owner alike. The bathing experience is one of contemplation and indulgence in the immersive apaiser baths that dominate the space.

Jackalope’s developer, Louis Li. Li commissioned a suite of Melbourne creatives to bring Jackalope to life. The Carr Design Group and multi-disciplinary studio Fabio Ongarato Design came together to craft this daring and brave design. This stunning new hotel creates an immersive interplay between the ideal and the surreal, delivered through an avant-garde approach to art, design, dining and storytelling. apaisermarble® delivers a core component of the goal of the developer to set the bar high for luxury in Australian boutique properties.

Just one hour from Melbourne and on the doorstep of the Mornington Peninsula, Jackalope hotel is set amid Willow Creek’s 11-hectare vineyard and will highlight the ability of apaiser to create true luxury bathware solutions suitable to any environment.

apaiser bathware featured in Australias most expensive and exclusive hotel.

May 23, 2017

After one of the most ambitious construction projects in Australian hospitality ever attempted, the ultralavish Crown Towers Perth is now open. Boasting 500 spacious rooms, spread across 23 storeys, it is all about the detail as much as the vision that makes Crown Perth, Australia’s outstanding resort. In realizing this ambitious design Crown personally selected apaiser to create bespoke baths and vanities to amplify the luxury and timeless nature of the design intent.

Celebrating the Western Australia coastal lifestyle with its oversized pools and outdoor entertainment areas, the guestrooms are sympathetically decorated in soothing neutral tones, to continue this design aesthetic into the room. The large baths with rear plinths and double integrated vanities by apaiser were created to add to the luxurious guest experience, that Singapore’s interior architect Michael Fiebrich and Melbourne’s design firm Bates Smart, envisaged as a statement in sumptuous bathing and relaxation that is wholly attuned to the level of sophistication this remarkable project delivers!

Sheer indulgence in a truly inspiring location !
