Steal This Look: A Conceptual Bathroom, German Design Edition

Yesterday we featured an exclusive look at the Washington, DC, remodel from interior architects and designers Lea Korzeczek and Matthias Hiller of Leipzig, Germany–based Studio Oink.

In the second-floor bathroom, the designers took a windowless, cubby-like bathroom and transformed it into a conceptual and serene space. The designers, as they say, strive for “balance between poetry and function, of simplicity and playfulness.” The bathroom is exactly that—packed with functional solutions and playful design details. Here’s how it all comes together.
