Living in Art
Beauty spoken through Lupi's designs
Bathrooms are highly considered to be as one of, if not the most sacred place in one’s abode. No matter how big, small, lavish or shabby-looking a bathroom is, it is ultimately designed for a unified purpose – to serve as a private haven where one could strip off his daily inhibitions, be it literally and figuratively.
The Tile Gallery, a leading purveyor of bathroom fixtures in the Metro in collaboration with Antonio Lupi – a top-of-the-line Italian company heralded for its exquisite bathroom furniture designs – had its exclusive launching of the brand’s collection last November 5th at The Tile Gallery’s Makati showroom.

It was an evening filled with cocktails and good ole camaraderie as the invited architects and friends from the press gazed on the Italian brand’s collection renowned for its detail-oriented designs and finishes. Among the materials used in crafting the furniture were marble, ceramic, wood and other eclectic pieces.

The modestly intimate setting provided by the neighboring cocktail tables were filled with delectable hors d’oeuvres – from bite-sized pieces of the country’s very own Adobo Profiteroles to the symbolic Italian Bruschetta. Adding harmony to the cozy ambiance of the event was the carefully curated jazz playlist which served as the backdrop to the melodious laughter of the guests conversing with each other over good wine.

As a celebration of one of the collection’s innovative features – lighted sinks and mirrors – guests were also treated to a visual feast by the stationed technicolored LED Par lights inside and outside the venue.
In culmination of the event’s rationale, Mr. Kenneth Hing, The Tile Gallery’s general manager welcomed and thanked everyone for taking the time out of their busy schedules to take part of this promising venture. Also showing gratitude to the tremendous support given by everyone was the driving force behind Antonio Lupi himself; Mr. Andrea Lupi, the CEO and the son of the late founder Antonio Lupi. After countless exchanges of praise for each other’s work, then came the final toast to end the night on a high note.
