Flowing shapes in steel/enamel – now also in oval
Bette presents the oval version of the BetteLux concept in three variants
Free-standing baths are a highlight in the bathroom and create a very personal wellness and relaxation zone. The oval shape lends its own new character to this successful bath – it comes across as a little less puristic, yet at the same time toned-down modern. The roundness saves some space and makes the body of the bath more sleek in appearance. Bette has created three oval variants l in collaboration with the designer Dominik Tesseraux: The free-standing BetteLux Silhouette, the BetteLux Highline for semi-recessed installation and the built-in variant.
The oval is available in three variants
These jointless Silhouette-models are made by Bette in the Westphalian town of Delbrück and reveal the manufacturer's high level of production competence. The bath is created from two pieces. A thin welded seam, created by skilled hands in the special workshop, invisibly joins the bath core to its skin. It is then fused and meticulously finished, before the glass-like enamel coating permanently refines the surface to create a perfect bathroom product. State-of-the-art computer-controlled production systems are supplemented by hand craftsmanship where this would benefit the customer.
Bette first realised this concept of a jointless steel/enamel bath a few years ago, and went on to further perfect it. The material and the workmanship ensure that the bath will remain stable and won't warp when used for either bathing or showering. The ergonomics and the feel deliver what the appearance promises. Besides the interior, one outstanding design feature of the free-standing BetteLux versions is the outer rim and the defined transitions between the bath rim and the vertical.
Bette has given the name Highline to those baths that were developed specially for installation in plinths, thereby opening up new design possibilities for the bath. Approximately half of the bath is built into the plinth. This gives the bath rim a height of just 28 cm. The built-in variant of the BetteLux Oval almost no longer has a bath rim: The folded rim is only eight mm in height and creates a whole new bath installation effect. As company boss Thilo C. Pahl says: "The product continues to surprise even ourselves with its versatility."
To match the BetteLux, Bette offers an extensive range of washbasins in the same design. These are of course also made from steel/enamel. BetteLux is available from the high-tech manufacturer Bette in Delbrück in white and in many other colours.

Free-standing steel monoliths: These jointless free-standing Silhouette-baths are made by Bette in the Westphalian town of Delbrück partly using hand craftsmanship, and reveal the manufacturer's high level of production competence: The bath is created from two pieces. It is then fused and meticulously finished before the glass-like enamel coating permanently refines the surface to create a perfect bathroom product.
Flowing shapes in steel/enamel on the washbasin too. Here are the counter top washbasins for BetteLux Oval combined with the new bathroom furniture series BetteModules. The minimalistic design of the built-in washbasin is perfectly complemented by the undermounted modules with handle-free drawers and push-to-open fittings.
