Downtown Design, a key element of Dubai Design Week, returns from November 14-17, showcasing the very best of original design in Dubai with a carefully edited roster of established and emerging brands across a range of product categories including furniture, lighting, bathrooms, kitchens, textiles and accessories. THG, the French family-owned and run luxury design house, will be showcasing four new bathroom collections transforming sanitary ware into pieces of art, at the event in Dubai Design District.
Since 1956, THG Paris has been designing luxury fittings from Béthencourt-sur-mer in Picardy. Recognized for its know-how, this family business supplies prestigious houses such as Baccarat, Lalique, Christofle, and Daum and offers exceptional products and symbols of luxury French-style. THG’s luxurious bathroom fittings are available in the UAE solely through Al Hashimya General Trading.
Thanks to its policy of constant innovation, for the first time since its creation, THG presents a health collection composed of baths, wash basins and shower trays. The French company sublimates the art of bathing with a collection synonymous of quality and refinement, two values that reflect the core principles of the brand.
Daughter of one of the founding partners and Marketing & Communications Director for THG Anne Sophie will also be in attendance at Dubai Design Week, offering journalists a rare insight into the company’s 61-year history, and exquisite new Galatee, Harmonie, Monceau, and Fillmore collections.
The Galatee collection was conceived by award-winning designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, who has worked with brands like the Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, and created restaurant environments for some of the world’s most innovative chefs. His overflow bath design combines elegance and comfort with an ergonomic design and an aesthetic bias that juxtaposes geometrical lines and structure to create an astounding central bathroom piece.
The Harmonie collection’s luxurious monobloc bathtub classically styled and accented with black and gold-coated shower fittings and faucets. The Monceau collection modern curves has a rim to install the tap. A rare feature on free standing bathtubs. The Fillmore washbasin with a timeless design allows the installation of the fitting directly on the rim. THG is known worldwide for the rarity of its unique materials, often incorporating crystal, porcelain, onyx, optical glass, leather, precious stones and natural marble into their exquisite pieces, and with the ability to fully customise each for their clients, they have become synonymous with quality in the industry. Elevating everyday objects into pieces of art, the company’s collections provide clients with an experience rather than an item, with intricate detailing and unique craftsmanship, a fact that is evident throughout each of the new collections. In its 60-year history THG has cultivated a reputation as the brand for high-end bathroom fittings and accessories and through working with internationally renowned designers THG Paris represents resolutely timeless luxury and the art of living.
