Alape / Germany


With the innovative washplace «Folio» Alape fully exploits the possibilities, which the production of glazed steel washbasins has to offer. The exact geometry, the minimal radii and the even surfaces are the result of highly precise manufacturing. A 3 mm thick glazed steel cover wraps tightly around the washplace and encases it like a waferthin sheet. The optimised storage space with hidden drawer runners creates the required bathroom space.

Clean lines and balanced lightness with Alape's new Folio line


Folio bathroom by Alape

Folio bathroom by Alape


Folio is more than a simple washing table. By expanding the technological possibilities of glazed steel, Alape created an elegant, delicate solution that is characterized by a homogenous, stylized look. The idea, a design by Gerard Busalt, makes table and basin become one fluent entity, creating a modern, seamless look. Flat surfaces, a geometric base and a minimal radius are the result of precise handicraft. The glazed steel, with a thickness of 3 mm, folds around the washing table, covering it like a thin piece of paper. The lightness and functionality of the material allow Folio to create a balance in the bathroom, fit for everything a modern bathroom needs to be.
