The Finion bathroom collection
Thanks to Patrick Frey's clear and coherent design, Finion radiates an aura that is both puristic and easy-going. He uses premium materials such as TitanCeram, customisable furniture and smart features to create a luxurious and relaxing atmosphere. In particular, the stylish contrast between clearly defined contours and smoothly flowing transitions conveys a feeling of warmth and security. Transforming the bathroom into a statement of high quality of life.
