With a consistency rarely seen, the Lin20 collection brings a sense of linear clarity to bathroom design. Regardless of whether the furniture is mounted on the wall or stands on the floor, the emphatically simple, straightforward design of Lin20 is deliberately unobtrusive. And thanks to its modular structure and three staggered depths, it’s also extremely versatile and provides plenty of storage space.
A simple, handleless design and floor-standing cabinets with an integrated plinth – those are the hallmarks of the Lin20 design line. Developed in collaboration with nexus product design, the collection from the sys20 design line segment aims to provide maximum storage space in combination with a minimalist aesthetic. The reduced-depth cabinet and vanity options are particularly suitable for making maximum use of small spaces – with the goal of creating a bathroom that doesn’t just keep everything in order but looks neat and tidy too.
As a modularly structured range, Lin20 reinvents bathroom furnishings by adopting the principle of efficient and ergonomic storage space maximisation familiar from kitchen design. Using the same grid system that kitchen cabinets are based on, the vanity units and add-on cabinets can be used to create apparently seamless combinations of bathroom furnishings with a character similar to that of a built-in kitchen. This impression is reinforced by the emphatically horizontal lines and handleless fronts, which match up when the modules are combined and thus create a visual analogy with kitchen design as well.
Thanks to the wide range of products the collection contains, Lin20 is also ideal for furnishing even the most difficult of spaces. Lin20 provides compact, consistent solutions that create the impression of a seamless whole. As a result, it’s just as suitable for furnishing the long, narrow bathrooms typically found in urban housing as it is for sophisticated details like T-walls implemented with the aid of pre-wall elements. “Lin20 fills a gap when it comes to making the most of individual and often awkward spaces like narrow rooms or layouts with lots of corners,” says head of marketing Sabine Meissner of the new burgbad collection’s potential.
The vanity cabinets and matching add-on cabinets were deliberately designed without doors. Instead, they are available with an asymmetric arrangement of two or three pullouts, the bottom one of which is always higher to accommodate bulky utensils. The collection also includes a standalone sideboard with a single pullout.
By contrast, the tall cabinets – which are available in several versions – are all equipped with doors. The basic model comes with one fixed shelf and three glass shelves. The optional extras include shelves on the inside of the fronts, a laundry basket, interior drawers and interior LED lighting, as well as a mirror plus magnifying mirror and power socket. The apothecary cabinet is equipped for maximum convenience: its lower section contains a double power socket and hairdryer holder. A full-length mirror with a storage door puts the finishing touches to the Lin20 range and is available with and without lighting and a power socket.
The mirror cabinets, available in six widths ranging from 600 to 1,600mm, feature minimalist horizontal lighting based on a new lighting concept that emits glare-free, dimmable light and can be varied between warm and cold white. Besides illuminating the area in front of the cabinet, the light also shines inwards and upwards. As a result, a single LED light is all that’s needed to illuminate the interior and provide indirect uplighting. The cabinets are equipped with doors mirrored on both sides, a switch and plug, a magnifying mirror and glass shelves, and are also available with optional washbasin lighting.
The new circular wall mirror with all-round LED lighting, integrated heating and sensor-based controls is simple, elegant and right on trend. The rectangular version with integrated LED lighting is available in six widths and is also equipped with two USB ports. Like the mirror cabinet, it echoes the horizontal lines that characterise the design of the furniture.
The Lin20 vanity tops and sit-on basins are available in a choice of ceramic or mineral cast, as well as in various widths and depths. All the vanity tops have a simple, straightforward design with a softly rounded bowl, slender edges and convenient ledges. Depending on the width, customers can choose from centrally positioned bowls, asymmetric layouts with a wide ledge and double vanities with a single continuous basin or two separate bowls.
The reduced-depth sit-on variant (width: 630mm; depth: 370mm) is new and was specially developed for small urban bathrooms. Thanks to its unusually fine edges, it provides sufficient volume for everyday usage despite its small dimensions. The guest bathroom solution with a depth of just 270mm and a width of 420mm (mineral cast) or 430mm (ceramic) cuts a particularly slender figure.
The flexible options for combining the cabinet modules in melamine, acrylic and lacquer finishes open up a great deal of scope not just for simple, monochrome effects but for colour blocking with interesting combinations of colours and materials. Customers can choose from 11 standard colours, 12 trend colours (available in both matt and high gloss for the lacquer fronts) and 10 up-to-the minute wood-effect finishes.
Lin20 is also one of the collections for which burgbad offers customised production in RAL colours. The possibility of ordering the surfaces with an ultra matt finish is another special option. All the colours from the lacquer spectrum, including the trend and RAL colours, can be ordered with an up-to-the-minute ultra matt coating. Besides allowing the bathroom furnishings to be adapted to their context, this also means customers can design their bathroom in their favourite colour.
