Dezeen promotion: German bathroom brand Kaldewei has launched Superplan Zero, a shower surface that can be accessed from three sides but still integrates seamlessly with the surrounding floor.
Superplan Zero was developed by German designer Werner Aisslinger, to offer customers a more open-plan shower experience.
The product can be placed beside a single wall with no need for additional shower screens.
With concealed drainage and a very subtle slope to the surface, it can line up precisely with surrounding floor tiles, so there are no steps up or down to enter.
“Installed at floor level, the shower surface becomes the bathroom floor and, thanks to its very narrow edges, allows direct tiling with almost invisible joints.”
The surface is made from long-lasting and 100 per cent recyclable steel enamel. A glass surface is applied to the steel to give it a luxurious look.
The design comes in over 50 different dimensions, ranging from 70 to 180 centimetres, and is available in a wide range of colour and surface variations, so can be easily integrated into any tiling layout.
To make this integration even easier, the product is compatible with Kaldewei’s range of sealing sets, assembly systems and waste fittings.
The waste is located towards the rear of the surface, making it easier to stand and move around comfortably. Customers can also specify Secure Plus, an invisible anti-slip surface, to ensure stability.
Superplan Zero debuted at the Supersalone fair in Milan in September. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was also the first time the brand was able to present its steel enamel product to an international audience.
To mark the occasion, Kaldewei worked with Canadian musician and photographer Bryan Adams to create a unique photo series.
Superplan Zero surfaces became a stage for choreographer Eric Gauthier and dancers Arielle Martin, Tatiana Martinez and Federico Spallitta, and the photos capture their bodies in motion.
