Sternhagen launched a signature bathroom suite collection – Scherezade in collaboration with Farah Khan, who is not just a jewellery designer but also a visionary, an artist and a storyteller. Her creations are conceived in her zealous imagination that allows her the freedom to make the impossible possible. This fortuitous collaboration brings the sophisticated design sensibilities of Farah Khan in the form of exquisite luxury bathroom ware with the technological and cutting–edge manufacturing methodologies of Sternhagen. This magnificent collection has the FK brand monogram Aayat artistically imprinted on the products gracing the modish designs with the distinct emblem. The highlight of this event marked the unveiling of the Aayat faucet that is meticulously crafted in silver and studded with a total of 473 natural diamonds that weigh a total of 8.62 carats.
SCHEREZADE – Inspired from palatial arches and royal historic monuments from the Golden age of Indian architecture with roots deep seated in the awe-inspiring history of our country’s heritage. This collection is an ode to that glorious rich Indian culture. This exquisite collection has a bold design interpretation of the brand monogram Aayat, while some products have a subtler attribute. The chic modernity of the square FK logo engraved on the products are a sign of the elegant design aesthetic that is promised in every Farah Khan design, executed with the elaborate yet brilliant technology and manufacturing capacities of Sternhagen creating the perfect unison of exquisite, authentic design and practical functionality. The faucet and basin are sophisticatedly designed with soft organic curves and are delicately embellished in imperial gold with a subtle finesse. The grandiose of the towel holders and the tissue paper holder lies in the bold usage of the Aayat motif, that tends to instantaneously elevate the bathroom spaces. Adding final touches to the majestic style of this collection is a simplistic water bidet that has the brand motif softly and seamlessly imprinted along the edges.
Chirag Parekh, Chairman and Managing Director at Acrysil Limited said, “As a brand, every Sternhagen product is all about creating intricate designs with beautiful aesthetics and uncompromised quality along with practical functionality. This collaboration with Farah, is yet another manifestation of the perfect union of art and engineering. It enhances bathroom spaces with a luxurious touch while retaining a sense of Indian heritage. Scherzade is a testimony to our philosophy – where art and style meet technology and innovation for bathrooms.”
“A Bath suite is more than just a place to take a shower. It’s where one pauses to think of the day to begin or the day gone by. It is a time to reflect with yourself alone and time to prepare or even unwind for the day. With my first lifestyle brand association, I chose bathrooms because it involved use of ceramic, metal, and Quartz, all materials which I’m familiar working with in my line of jewellery. Also, the idea of collaborating with a luxury brand like Sternhagen, that prides itself for art with engineering made me want to align my design sensibilities with them,” says Farah Khan.
