Bath products manufacturer Wetstyle has unveiled three new collections that the company says “raise the bar on bathroom comfort and elegance.”

A collaboration between designer Pierre Bélanger and the Wetstyle Design Lab, the products include two tubs, a floor-mount vanity, and a drop-in sink. The pieces, the company says, embody the essence of freshness and purity.

“Wetstyle is focused on contemporary product design that favors simplicity of forms and relevance to trending fashions,” says Bélanger. “The result is the creation of timeless collections that adhere to our motto of ‘durability, finesse, and quality’.”

The first product in the collection is the Mood soaking tub, featuring an elliptical design and a side rim storage shelf that blends into the tub’s design. “Conceived in response to growing consumer demand for Zen-like relaxation, Mood infuses a spa-like feel into home bathroom environments,” Wetstyle says.

Made from Wetmar BiO, a non-slip composite material, the tub has natural heat-insulating property that allows water to stay warmer longer, the company says. It incorporates dual backrests with two inclination settings.

Wetstyle says the unit has a versatile design that blends seamlessly with either contemporary or traditional interiors. It’s available in a choice of matte or glossy finishes, with metal overflow trim available in satin brass, matte black, brushed nickel, or polished chrome.

The company also introduced a series of soaking tubs and washbasins under the Lab Collection. Also made from Wetmar BiO, the the pieces incorporate finely beveled details and subtle curves.

Available in two models, the soaking tubs feature a deeper design to prevent overflow, while a 45-degree aesthetic design refinement contributes to the collection’s sleek, thinner look. The smaller Lab-1 measures 59.5 by 31.5 by 24 inches and fits within a 60-inch alcove. The tub features a backrest and spacious back ledge designed to accommodate a deck-mounted faucet. The slightly larger Lab-2 measures 65.87 by 30 by 24 inches and features a wide side storage ledge, with beveled edges that define a clutter-free deck. Both models also offer soft toe-touch drains.

“The inspiration behind the collection was a desire to create a product to accommodate space restraints, but without sacrificing on comfort and functionality,” says Bélanger. “By creating an angle on the periphery, we were able to maintain a finesse in the edges that makes the product appear more delicate, thin, and refined.”

Available in both freestanding and wall-adjacent models, the Lab collection was designed to meet the space requirements of any bathroom. The freestanding option serves as a focal point of the room, while the Lab -1 model also addresses an industry shortfall with convenient trap access for faucet servicing. The wall-adjacent model reduces the tub’s physical footprint and optimizes space for additional amenities.

The collection also features six washbasins, available in Lab Round and Lab Square models designed for a variety of environments. Lab Round sinks echo those of the collection’s soaking tubs, while Lab Square sinks symmetrically and aesthetically integrate with Wettyle’s Stellé collection of pedestals.

Designed to accept the Lab drop-in sinks, the Stellé collection introduces floor-mount vanities that fit easily into any size of powder room or bathroom. The collection was “designed for simplicity and finesse in conjunction with our Lab collection washbasins,” Bélanger explains. “Whether selected for a powder room, or as a grander statement for larger bathrooms, Stellé exudes the richness of its woods in the form of a timeless monolith.”

Made from responsibly sourced hardwoods such as oak, walnut, Mozambique, and torrified eucalyptus, the pieces feature a marine-grade finish, providing moisture resistance and durability, the company says.

Stellé vanities are available in a variety of sizes and colors, and with or without doors. With-door models feature shelves and fully finished interiors, as well as soft-closing Blum hinges and matte black powder-coated solid stainless steel handles.

Wetstyle says the Mood and Lab collections are designed to work with the company’s Plug & Bathe overflow and plumbing connection system, which provides an integrated connectivity between tub walls and drains, simplifying the installation and servicing of freestanding tubs.
