If you’ve been considering new bathroom shelves, now is the time to take a look. You don’t just want something that stores all your toiletries. You also want something that blends in with the overall design and makes you feel at home.

The Burgbad shelving system: Breathe colour into everyday life

At the imm Cologne 2020, the German bathroom furniture manufacturer Burgbad presented the colourful rgb series, which had already won a German Design Award. The open, modular shelving system by Stefan Diez can be supplemented with doors, drawers, baskets and worktops. It can also be combined with selected washbasins. The semi-transparent, tinted glass panels on aluminium rails make it appear especially light.

For those who prefer a less colourful bathroom, the Junit wall shelf from Burgbad is an equally practical solution in purist industrial design. The black aluminium frame serves as a towel rail and creates an elegant contrast to the white shelf surface on which you can place accessories and care products.
