Robern Introduces Two New Antique Mirror Finishes to the Profiles Collection
Bristol, Penn. – The Robern Profiles Collection is comprehensive assortment of medicine cabinets, vanities, mirrors, task lighting and wide range of finishes that afford trade professionals and consumers with a complete toolbox to customize any living space. Clean, modern styling and the latest in technology come together in an integrated approach to interior design that provide stylish solutions for every lifestyle.
Robern now adds to Profiles two new antique mirror finishes: Luna, a shimmering play of silver and smoke; and Arcobaleno, a gold field broken with silver. These illusionary finishes are handcrafted in Siena, a small town nestled in Tuscany, Italy. The gifted artisans marry 18th century mirror-making techniques with 21st century oxidation processes transforming the mirror into visually imaginative, decorated surfaces of depth and dimension. The antique mirrors are available in two sizes: a 30-inch wide powder room solution and a 60-inch wide master suite solution.
In the true spirit of avant-garde design, the Robern Profiles Collection started organically – inspired by clients and their individual expectations. Championed by longtime Robern studio head, Howard Katz, who after being with Robern for almost five decades, saw a pattern emerging after taking the lead on its custom Collaborative Design Services. Based upon this interactive partnership, Katz recognized a significant opportunity to differentiate Robern from other manufacturers, which ultimately became the catalyst behind Robern’s work to provide a program that could meet the unique needs faced when executing complex, multi-space projects for clients with discerning tastes.
Katz identified that these projects required more than a cookie cutter approach, instead calling for versatility and flexibility to adapt to the many spatial configurations that come naturally with the job. It was Katz’s passion and understanding of the Robern product portfolio coupled with Robern’s many years of custom project work that ultimately became the cornerstones upon which the Profiles Collection was conceptualized. Almost two years in the works, Robern now comes to the marketplace with the Profiles Collection, a one-stop-shop of product choices no matter the project or space requirements.
Inspired elements of Art Deco design are woven into pared down Cubist styling to create the Profiles Collection modular offerings and incorporate high-function features and technological advances developed by Robern for its clientele for 50 years. From lighting, mirrors and medicine cabinets that can be ganged in dramatic presentation to vanities that offer integrated nightlights, in-drawer electrical outlets, slow close, tip out drawers, slim drawer inserts and organization kits offered in a range of glass and metal finishes, Robern offers a personalized approach. The Profiles Collection high-functioning technology and depth and breadth of product provide almost limitless options to transform any space, blurring the lines of traditional and contemporary styling for a look that remains timeless.
Robern also offers a wide range of metal finishes including Chrome and Polished Nickel plated finishes and Matte Black and Matte Gold anodized finishes. Robern’s range of finish choices coordinate with sister brand, KALLISTA and KOHLER fixtures and fittings for even more options. The recent addition of the Robern anodized finishes again raises the bar. Known for its durability, color stability, ease of maintenance and chemically stable, non-toxic qualities, Robern unveiled Matte Black anodized finish in 2017 and is now following up with Matte Gold to coincide with its 50th anniversary and continue the pure custom story. The Archobaleno antique mirror finish is sold exclusively with the Matte Gold metal frame; the Luna antique mirror finish is sold exclusively with the Matte Black metal frame.
