Apaiser Bathware is unveiling a new work of art by Melbourne born and world acclaimed contemporary artist James Reka at its Richmond showroom on Wednesday 12th November.

Now based in Berlin, Reka is a leading figure in the contemporary art scene of Europe. Reka’s sensational artwork on an apaiser Sentosa bath was the hit of the Maison et Objet design show during Singapore Design Week earlier this year. The painting was commissioned by apaiser as the feature of their award-winning stand at the prestigious Maison et Objet Asia 2014, an anchor event of the Singapore Design Week. apaiser’s participation at Maison et Objet Asia 2014 was timed to coincide with the launch of a signature apaiser showroom in Singapore.

Reka was flown to Singapore to create this unique one-off piece of art and lend his inimitable style to apaiser’s design and bathware presentation. Signifying that bathing is ‘an art form’ rather than simply a function, the ‘Painted Lady’ artwork on the bath became the talking point of the show.

apaiser will be celebrating the arrival of this one-of-a-kind statement in bathware with an exclusive cocktail architect and designer evening on 12th November. The painted bath will be available for sale at apaiser’s Richmond showroom.

apaiser’s bathware redefines the traditional bathroom space by combining sculptural form with minimalist aesthetic. Designed in Melbourne, apaiser’s hand-sanded and hand-finished stone composite baths are manufactured using reclaimed sustainable ingredients with the unique hand-finishing process minimising carbon output during production, and ensuring low environmental impact.
