1970s avocado bathrooms were on designer Bethan Laura Wood’s mind while designing her psychedelic bathroom collection for Kaldewei. Previewed during London Design Festival 2023, the collection features Kaldewei classics such as the Meisterstück Oyo Duo freestanding bath, Superplan Zero shower surface and Miena wash-stand.

“I wanted to reference the avocado bathroom I had in my personal dreams, using this shade as one of the signature colors of the three colors I produced,” she says. “Within the design, I used a range of color tones, so that when placed in different environments, they will have movement in the design of the dominant patterns and colours.” The aim is for the color to adapt to different tastes, interior styles and bathroom design ideas, mixed with bolder colors to bring out the full avocado effect, or mixed with softer neutrals for a more subdued visual effect.

The three enamelled color combinations are the result of the designer’s sensitivity to colour, with three swirling patterns: “Avocado Swirl”, defined by soft green tones, “Avocado Sea”, with blue and purple tones, and the expressive “Avocado Disco”. With contrasting colors that raise the level of graphic composition.

The collection is as much about color as it is about patterns, and Woods’ designs form a dialogue with the shapes of objects. “I decided to design a pattern that flowed and went around the curves of the bathtub,” she says. ‘I liked the idea of ​​using the delicate fabric of a silk robe that you can put on your body after a relaxing bath. I wanted to focus on the idea of ​​a luxurious bath where you spend time relaxing and dreaming.’
