Junit – a framework for freedom

The new collection from bathroom furniture specialist burgbad speaks a young, puristic design language that makes it the ideal choice for open and individualistic interiors
Junit – a framework for freedom (lifePR) (Bad Fredeburg, ) Junit is burgbad’s answer to the growing need for individual bathrooms in urban settings that combine a young, clear-cut design with quality and lifestyle. Its modular construction principle makes Junit the perfect choice for the kind of loosely structured architecture that is compatible with open-plan layouts. And thanks to a design that plays with volumes, asymmetry and open spaces, Junit can be used to create a feeling of spaciousness and freedom in small and medium-sized bathrooms as well.

Junit – everything you need for a stylish start
The new console collection consists of a vanity unit in three sizes (width: 765, 900 or 1200mm, depth: 500mm, height: 530mm) with either a rectangular ceramic basin or a round sit-on basin made of mineral cast, as well as mirror cabinets in four sizes (width: 500, 700, 900 or 1200mm, depth: 210mm, height: 675mm), an illuminated mirror (width: 500mm, height: 1225mm), three tall cabinet variants and a mid-height cabinet (width: 350mm, depth: 320mm, height: 1760 or 960mm) with various interior fittings and a wall shelf that can be positioned as required (width: 500mm, depth and height: 150mm). Despite this moderate number of individual elements, the range is extremely versatile and permits a wide range of combinations, making the Junit collection ideally suited to the requirements of anyone setting out to create a modern and sophisticated bathroom in their first home. What’s more, as part of the Sys10 Quick Ship range, Junit is straightforward, designed for easy planning and available quickly.
As its name suggests, Junit stands for a unit consisting of different elements that perform several functions: open and closed, graphic and characterised by smooth, uninterrupted surfaces, Junit is both washbasin and furniture, mirror and light, storage space and display ledge, towel holder, rail, shelf and dressing table, all rolled into one.

A modularly structured vanity unit that leaves scope for individual tastes
The vanity consists of a slender metal frame made of black anodised aluminium combined with what looks like a perfectly fitting drawer: a slightly smaller cabinet that does not fill the entire width of the frame and thus leaves space for storage on the sides – a choice of one or two open compartments depending on the width of the frame. The lines of the frame thus define an additional space that is accentuated by integrated spotlights. But that’s not all: the frame performs other functions as well, doubling as a towel holder or rail. The sit-on basins add a cuboid or sphere to the defined volume, leaving plenty of free space at the sides for accessories and utensils.
All the Junit elements are designed to not quite fill the space outlined by the frame, defining the free areas as space for the user instead. Only in their entirety do they form a unit. It is the sum of the individual elements that creates added value.

Open design – hidden interior
Developed in collaboration with the team from nexus product design, Junit speaks a distinctly modern design language that echoes the trend towards exposed structures in the furniture world. The elements’ open construction and slightly off-centre arrangement creates a highly variable look that invites individual interpretations. The interplay of surfaces and lines and closed and open volumes breaks with traditional typologies, looks very authentic and, thanks to the sometimes asymmetric overall effect, almost mobile.
Despite its open character, the vanity cabinet has plenty of closed storage space for toiletries and a drawer for keeping smaller utensils neat and tidy. The waste trap is also hidden from view.

Two sit-on basins – one architectural, one sculptural
The geometric basic shapes of the sit-on basins go well with the simple, architectural design language of the vanity unit. The ceramic basin, which features a thin-walled rim all the way round and is 530mm wide, combines a cubic exterior silhouette with a soft, cloth-like interior shape, while the spherical mineral cast basin (diameter: 360mm) tilts towards the user and features totally new proportions. Its sculptural character is further accentuated by different finishes: glossy at the top and matt at the bottom.
The extras: top-quality mirror cabinets, self-healing countertop, five finishes – and an edgy wall shelf that can be positioned as required
The mirror cabinets in the Junit collection are made to burgbad’s usual high standard, with horizontal, energy-saving LED lighting at the top, optional LED basin lighting, double-sided mirror doors, a carcass with mirrored outside walls and a charcoal-grey interior, glass shelves, sockets and various other features. The illuminated mirror in portrait format (width: 500mm, height: 1225mm) is sized to match the width of the ceramic washbasin and creates an attractive vertical accent.

The matt-white countertop of the vanity is made of a high-tech material that combines new thermoplastic resins and nanotechnology to create a “self-healing” finish. Although unusually matt and soft, it is also resistant to scuffing, scratches and cleaning agents. What’s more, scratches can even be heat treated and quite literally ironed out.
Various finishes are available for the Junit cabinet fronts (acrylic fronts in white and grey high gloss, wood-effect melamine fronts in Cashmere Oak, Flannel Oak and Marone Truffle), enabling customers to create a variety of looks ranging from puristic all the way to cosy. But the overall effect is always the same: in combination with the striking dark metal frame, the unobtrusive cabinet finishes create a sense of order and clarity.

The cubic wall ledge is another particularly attractive element of the Junit collection and can be positioned as required to bring a playful, airy feel to the bathroom design. The slender metal-framed ledge fits into virtually any corner, adds an extremely graphic and decorative touch and, when combined with the illuminated wall mirror, doubles as an understated dressing table.
The bottom line: maximum added value per (J)unit

Junit adds a modern, lifestyle-oriented style option to burgbad’s entry-level segment and Sys10 Quick Ship range, offering excellent value for money in the form of a vanity unit with sit-on basin. With its striking metal frame, clear-cut design language and simple yet welcoming look, the design aims to appeal to a younger, trend-savvy target group. Junit is a quality bathroom furniture collection with an unconventional, puristic character. For all its openness, it is highly functional and designed to bring order to the bathroom: order that leaves plenty of scope for individual freedom.
