Victoria + Albert is pleased to unveil a new category of washstand that is notable for its beautiful brass construction, gleaming Polished Chrome finish and ENGLISHCAST® basin top. With an open design and minimalist lines, the collection was created in collaboration with Italian designers Meneghello Paolelli Associati, known for their take on refining classic designs so pieces will work equally well in modern or traditional environments.

The Candella washstands are typified by the design of the legs, which feature elegantly shaped details. A towel bar and a storage shelf in toughened glass are practical yet well designed, lending a sense of hotel style to the bathroom. The Candella is available in two sizes; Candella 114 (45-1/8” W), which is topped with a sleek Mandello 114 Solo basin, or the Candella 100 (39-3/8” W), topped with a Victorian-inspired Lario 100 Solo basin.

The Metallo washstands are timeless design classics, with right angle tee joints that reference traditional bathroom pipework, looking equally at home in a more historic period bathroom or industrial-inspired scheme. Each washstand features a practical towel bar and a shelf for storage, finished in a tubular brass. The Metallo is available in two sizes; Metallo 114 (45-1/8” W), which is topped with a sleek Mandello 114 Solo basin, or the Metallo 100 (39-3/8” W), topped with a Victorian-inspired Lario 100 Solo basin.

The washstands are available with 0, 1 or 3 faucet holes so the designer or homeowner can choose faucets that best suits the bathroom’s design. The generous width of the basin tops means that there’s ample room for toiletries on the surface of the washstand, in addition to the storage shelf beneath. Each washstand also features an adjustable screw on the two legs for perfect levelling.

“We are proud to have developed a range of products that work in a wide range of contexts. Perfectly balanced between past and present, tradition and innovation, reinterpretation and modernity, the Candella and Metallo washstands represent a combination of classic shapes and contemporary design.” – Meneghello Paolelli Associati, 2018.

With their and chic silhouettes, Candella and Metallo are destined to be favorites among Victoria + Albert’s collection of bathroom furnishings. Learn more about these exceptional designs at vandabaths.com.
