Philip Watts Design launches its first bathroom range at this year’s 100% Design. The range incorporates five sinks and a bath, all made of metal rather than traditional ceramic. The use of metal has allowed the group to ‘be subversive with a sink’s traditional geometric form’, says Philip Watts Design founder Philip Watts. Sonk (left), the first product in the range, is made of stoveenamelled cast aluminium. 100% Design is at Earls Court 2 from 25-28 September.
