Bathrooms: Marmoreal Collection by Max Lamb for Dzek at Design Miami/Basel


British designer, Max Lamb has added a fresh take on the monochrome trend with his engineered Marmoreal marble installation for Dzek, presented at Design Miami/Basel. Inspired by Eastern bathing rituals, Lamb created impact by repeating the material across the each surface. We recommend you do try this technique at home.


Marmoreal is available in a black or white marble background and an edited range of standard tile and slab dimensions.
