Bringing organic shapes, pure lines and warm colours to the fore, Roca’s new bathroom collection Ona is a celebration of the Mediterranean lifestyle.
In the Catalan language, “ona” has the meaning of “wave”. Such is the name of Roca’s new bathroom range, a collaboration between the Spanish sanitary product manufacturer and international studios Noa Design and Benedito Design. As befit the gentle ebb and flow of ocean waves, the Ona collection goes out of its way to imbue modern bathrooms with organic shapes, pure lines, natural materials and colours.
Why the Mediterranean you may ask? Roca first started out manufacturing cast iron radiators in Barcelona over a century ago, and the luxury bathroom fitting brand has since expanded out of its hometown, offering expertly engineered, beautiful appliances to customers worldwide by way of Spain, with far-flung footprints ranging from South America and Europe to Asia.
Consider the Ona Collection as the brand going back to their native in the Mediterranean, matching ultimate hygiene with innovative technology and gorgeous designs. It includes all the necessities to fit out the lavatory in any residential or commercial space: basins, furniture, faucets, complements, baths, toilets and bidets. Subtle, modest and soothing, all the fittings convey an aura of understated luxury.
Take the slim basin and the highly durable faucet: the cylindrical and slender body and a flat rectangular handle stand in perfect harmony with the spout shape, and the water closet has a hidden fixation that keeps the bathroom neat, clean and minimal.
User experience is also top of mind when Roca designs the Ona series. Think a thoughtful water closet height, a big flush button and a soft-close seat and water closet cover with a practical button for a quick release, and faucets in a variety of sizes to meet your needs.
It goes without saying that hygiene is a big concern in a bathroom, given how bacteria and germs can lurk in even the most spotless nook and corner. Roca approaches this with the design from the get go. The Ona toilet, for instance, is free of any angle or nook. What’s more, the Roca-exclusive Supraglaze® enamel waterproofs the toilet, protecting it against grime, helping water swirling and enabling easy cleaning. The integrated touchless features mean that users can control the flushing, faucets, and soap dispensers without direct contact with the gadgets.
Conscious of the role it plays in preserving the natural planet, environmental sustainability and energy savings are firmly ingrained into Roca’s DNA. In the Ona collection, the reduced 4.5/3L flush and faucets incorporate the Cold Start system and 5L/min flow limiters to save up water use. The same consciousness is part of the manufacturing process too: the patented Fineceramic® technology produces lighter basins that eventually limit the carbon footprint.
Given its many merits, the Ona Collection has garnered the prestigious iF Design Award 2022. To say the new bathroom range is the perfect merge of smart living, sustainability and beautiful functionality would be a gross understatement.
