'The leitmotif of the collection is the cylindrical shape'

Salvatori's first bathroom collection in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola

The Small Hours, Salvatori's first bathroom collection in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola, is a complete offering that combines natural stone with a range of materials, reflecting meticulous attention to functionality, geometry, and colour.

The name itself refers to that special atmosphere that accompanies daybreak, that intimate moment of solitary reflection just before the world awakes to a new day. The collection captures this perfectly as Salvatori continues its exploration of the bathroom as a sophisticated yet calming haven—a place that restores the mind, body, and soul. This design ethos overlaps with that of a home's living zone.

The new collection features a host of elements designed to create striking, highly personal bathrooms that make a statement. It includes wall-hung, countertop, and freestanding washbasin variants, a top with backsplash, shelves, drawers, a shower tray, round bathtub, and a mosaic pattern. Accessories like round and rectangular mirrors in various sizes can be customized with the phrase 'Believe me or your eyes'. Rounding out the collection is a family of floating shelves made of steel, wood, and natural stone, and a stool in walnut wood, highlighting the evolution of the bathroom as a more holistic living space rather than purely functional.

The leitmotif of the collection is the cylindrical shape, imposing architectural rigor and bringing harmony to the elements. Simplified versions of the cylinder with pared-back, defined lines allow the stone to take centre stage, complemented by oak and walnut wood and steel accents.

On one hand, there are understated forms and the vivid touch of metal; on the other, the innate naturalness of stone. Urquiola envisions steel as a form of glue that defines volumes and fine surfaces while disrupting the single-material approach. This combination transforms the bathroom into a continuously evolving architecture of the senses, resulting in a powerful contrast between the solidity of stone and the smoothness of steel, generating both tactile and visual appeal.

Salvatori's mastery of natural stone is evident in The Small Hours, where different textures and tactile sensations converge, complemented by a variety of wood types. The collection introduces vibrant stone colors like Verde Guatemala and Verde Antico alongside Salvatori's emblematic neutral palette of Bianco Carrara, Crema d'Orcia, Silk Georgette®, and Pietra d'Avola, balancing understated luxury with Urquiola's distinctive style.

The Small Hours marks Salvatori's latest collaboration with leading Italian and international designers and the third with Patricia Urquiola. Following her Kore miniature houses for The Village and the Taula table series, the Spanish designer brings her intriguing vision to the bathroom space, offering a new perspective on the Salvatori universe.
