Connect Air: Light, refined design from Ideal Standard
Planning a new bathroom? Ideal Standard’s Connect Air collection builds on the design philosophy of the ever-popular Connect collection with beautifully refined edges and a feather-like form.
For over a century, Ideal Standard has been a trailblazer for bathroom design trends. Combining effortless design and innovative technology to create stunning, customisable spaces. The Connect Air range is no exception, featuring an elegant range of basins, baths, showers and toilets.
Designed in collaboration with the renowned Studio Levien, the delicate yet robust collection takes its inspiration from silhouettes commonly found in nature. Available in 2 distinct choices of shape: feather-light Connect Air Arc or the bolder Air Cube, the collection’s signature fine edges and tapered profile bring an almost weightless beauty to the ceramics.

Connect Air also features 4 basin options to choose from—including pedestal, vanity, vessel and semi countertop—allowing you to mix and match from the wide selection of vanities, furniture and matching toilets, all from the same range, for a complete bathroom solution.
The choice of accompanying furniture has also been designed to suit any shape or size of space, while an open module solution provides quick and easy access to towels and toiletries. With a choice of white, light grey or premium silk black finish and handle-free fronts, Connect Air is bound to match your chosen colour scheme.

Studio Echo: Heritage design reimagined by Ideal Standard
Looking for a bathroom range that combines rich design heritage with the precision of modern manufacturing techniques? The Studio Echo collection from Ideal Standard does just that.
Ideal Standard has a long and rich history of working with leading designers to create inspiring, high quality collections by making the most of innovative technology and design expertise. Studio Echo maintains these values for a flexible range that will easily blend with a diverse selection of interior styles.
A re-imagining of the original Studio collection, the range takes its inspiration from mid-19th century design and features a variety of sleek toilets, semi countertop and pedestal basins in a traditional white finish with thin, refined lines throughout.
Designed in partnership with the award-winning team at Studio Levien, Studio Echo brings its namesake into the modern age, with the latest manufacturing techniques used to create an understated, carefully crafted range.
For both storage and sophistication, look no further than the range of full bathroom suites from the Ideal Standard Studio Echo collection
The Studio Echo collection features a wide variety of washbasins including pedestal basins, hand rinse basins, semi-countertop basins and corner basins, with units ranging from 450mm to 550mm. The versatile nature of the collection means there’s a solution for any bathroom configuration—whether you’re looking to fill a spacious family bathroom or squeeze every last inch out of a small guest bathroom.
The toilets from the Studio Echo collection further enhance the flexibility of the collection, with both back-to-wall and close coupled toilets available. Short projection options are also on offer, perfect for making the most of space in smaller rooms. All toilets within the range come with a dual flush system, which uses the latest water-saving technology to reduce water consumption to only 4/2.6 litres of water each flush, helping you lower your costs.
A winning combination: Create your perfect ensuite with any of the stylish toilet and basin suites from the Ideal Standard Echo Collection
