BetteBicolour: Of a seam that isn’t there
Perfect illusion: BetteBicolour – the seamlessness of freestanding baths with two-coloured enamelling
BetteBicolour describes two-colour masterpieces. The bath core is in traditional pure white, and has a calm, stabilising effect. There is a choice of matt or glossy black, the colour of sophisticated, strong, defining elegance, for the exterior. And for those who prefer something more colourful there is an inspiring violet. Whether white/black or white/violet, the result is a coloured contrast that has absolutely the right effect.
Bicolour supplies a visual phenomenon: the colour play of the enamel occurs right on the top edge of the bath-body, suggesting a seam that isn't actually there. Anyone who moves a finger along the transition to find the colour seam will seek in vain. There simply is no joint to feel! The baths are made in a combination of high-tech and individual manufacturing methods. The bath core and bath body are seamlessly welded together using skilled craftsmanship, and then finished with the bicolour layer of enamel, the BetteGlaze.
The obvious conceals the actual. "This bath flirts with an art that cannot be seen or felt," says Thilo Pahl, managing director of this family company. By deliberately placing the transition point between the two colour variants at an edge, BetteBicolour emphasises the nature of this bath category. There is a purely visual enhancement of the character of the components that are seamlessly joined together to create a single piece.
Playing with the perfect illusion: the colour separation of the exterior and interior emphasises the physical aspect of these baths. The effect of the monolithic sculpture in steel/enamel is shown at its most effective by the deep, penetrating black as the counterpart to the pure white interior. The unusual version in white/violet shows the bath as a three-dimensional object with additional spatial refinement, which adds exceptional accents in the bathroom. The accentuated seamlessness sharpens the observer's senses.
Enamelled, not lacquered
To repeat: we enamel; we don't lacquer! In enamel, defined colour changes such as this are a sign of skilled craftsmanship in the use of this process. Bette has set new standards for freestanding baths with the development of this finishing technique. "Now we're going one step further in the design," explains Pahl. "Motivated by the material's possibilities and inspired by the subject of colour change, we used the design playfully to add a new accent." All six baths in the Silhouette line and the BetteOne Highline can be finished in this highest form of the art of enamelling - and are available as BetteBicolour.
The ecological quality of the BetteBicolour range (and of all Bette's other products) is confirmed by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) from the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. This EPD complies with ISO 14025.
