Imagine the Italian lifestyle: Indulge with La Dolce Vita® from Ideal Standard

Leading bathroom manufacturer, Ideal Standard, is launching its new La Dolce Vita® range, the latest addition to its design-led Atelier Collections. The range has been designed by Chief Design Officer Roberto Palomba and has been inspired by its famous namesake expression – the sweet life.  

Speaking about the collection, Roberto Palomba said: “With this new range, I aimed to reinterpret La Dolce Vita. The phrase conjures a lifestyle where there is time to savour the beauty in small things; in the everyday. La Dolce Vita® creates a tactile, expressive space whose sensuality sparks inspiration and dreams, where new ideas are born. It was important to me to capture this essence and bring it to life in every detail of this collection.”  

La Dolce Vita® features solutions for the entire bathroom, from vanities and vessels, toilets, bidets and bathtubs to mixer taps, shower products and accessories. What’s more, the new range is compatible with Ideal Standard’s wider product portfolio, thanks to the company’s Singular™ philosophy, meaning designers and customers can indulge in whatever suits their vision.  

Launching alongside La Dolce Vita®, Ideal Standard’s Finesse furniture series perfectly complements the range but is also compatible with many other collections, offering endless possibilities to homeowners and designers alike. Finesse features a modern design with subtle, recessed handles and a choice of four matt colours and two wood finishes, with one, two or four-drawer options, open shelving, and a variety of depths to fit different room sizes and ceramic collections. Sustainability was a crucial consideration during development, which is why the entire range is crafted from Chain of Custody-certified wood sourced from sustainably managed forests. 

Aesthetically, La Dolce Vita’s beauty is carefully balanced between geometric shapes and forms inspired by the natural environment. The tapered shape and curved edges of the ceramic vanities and toilets in the collection elegantly set them apart from the crowd, while the deep, flower-shaped vessel basins are instantly eye-catching in both square and round designs. The accompanying vanities are available in six different sizes, including standout asymmetric models that offer a practical storage surface. As a statement piece, the freestanding bathtub commands the space in any bathroom, but still echoes the understated elegance of a relaxed Italian lifestyle. 

Fittings and accessories follow the same lead, with basin mixers, vessel mixers, wall-mounted models, bath and shower mixers sharing the same design DNA. The shower system options offer an elegant stem-like design too, with a minimalist arch. All of the fittings are available in classic chrome or Ideal Standard’s sophisticated PVD colours: brushed gold, magnetic grey and silver storm.  

It isn’t just style where La Dolce Vita thrives: behind the elegant exterior lies innovative Ideal Standard technology. WCs feature either AquaBlade® technology or RimLS+® on wall-hung bowls, offering excellent flushing performance and improved hygiene. Moreover, the toilets are designed to flush efficiently with low water usage, only using 4.5L for a full flush. EcoFlow regulators in the taps and shower products further reduce water consumption, promoting a more sustainable use of water. Additionally, the FirmaFlow® ceramic cartridge in the taps ensures durability, while PVD technology makes the coloured fittings and accessories extremely hard-wearing and scratch-resistant.
