Matrix launches 3xe Cardio Line

design/design-001.jpg The 3xe line of cardio gym equipment from Matrix comprises treadmills, elliptical and ascent trainers, recumbent, hybrid and upright cycles as well as a Climbmill and a Stepper – all said to ‘redefine the exercise experience’.

Each of the machines has a console offering users a large, touchscreen display with FitTouch Technology for effortless interaction, as well as an intuitive app interface that realises a variety of entertainment through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.

Users can also instantly access their own fitness data with an xID single sign-on, and their personal preferences will automatically load every time they log in to a machine.

Gharieni offers a unique perspective on treatment beds

design/design-002.jpg Billed as offering a ‘unique new perspective on treatment beds’, the multi-purpose and elegant MLW Transform from Gharieni combines a sofa with a massage table and would be suitable for a range of spa and wellbeing locations including spa suites.

Transformed in three easy steps, the sofa’s integrated castors can be extracted electronically via the control panel before the seat is pulled out and the headrest is inserted.

The table is electronically adjustable in height as well as having an integrated heating system and, thanks to an in-built battery, it can be fully operational without any power connection. The inclination and height of the table’s U-shaped headrest can also be adjusted.

The MLW Transform can be supplied in a variety of vinyl upholstery options and it is also possible to incorporate customer-supplied materials including leather.

VitaJuwel unveils ERA decanter

The Austrian brand’s gemstone vials sit within the hand-crafted decanter, which is easy to use and dishwasher-safe. A maximum of 1.3 litres can be held in the new vessel, the lid of which doesn’t need to be removed during pouring.

Popular at spas including Six Senses, Mandarin Oriental and Ritz-Carlton, VitaJuwel’s gemwater concept offers vials with a range of health-enhancing compositions including blends to aid ‘Vitality’, ‘Wellness’ and ‘Balance’.

Elegant treatment table from Oakworks

design/design-004.jpg The Talise treatment table from leading manufacturer Oakworks is said to be ‘elegant, yet masculine’ with its curved panels and contemporary lines.

The bed is a generous 190.5cm in length and 78.7cm wide, and can be supplied with either square or round corners.

A hand-controlled electric lift system powers its four-section bed and a storage option is also available in the shape of an in-table cabinet featuring overlapping sliding doors with a 49.5cm opening for easy access.

The Talise joins the Icon and Maia tables as part of Oakworks’ new Masters’ Collection. All the tables are compatible with STUDIO, the company’s interactive online tool that enables its clients to fully customise and design their products, with thousands of finish, material and colourway options available to choose from.

Grohe adds luxury to the showering experience

More than one metre long and in excess of 75cm wide, the new shower head offers up to 12 different spray patterns as well as lighting to affect moods ranging from ‘relaxing’ to ‘energising’.

Digital controls and interfaces enable easy personalisation of the shower experience and sonic features, while AquaSymphony also features the anti-lime system SpeedClean and Grohe’s DreamSpray to deliver a perfect spray pattern.

KEDRY's KE Protezioni Solari

design/design-006.jpg Created to enable year-round enjoyment of the outdoors, regardless of the weather, KEDRY’s elegant, waterproof blade structure is resistant to rain, wind and snow.

The structure’s aluminium roof is comprised of adjustable swinging blades that allow it to be open, partially open, or completely closed on the sunniest of days.

The sides of the shelter can be secured with zip screens or windows and KEDRY’s modular configuration means it is suitable for covering a range of outdoor spaces including patios or terraces.

It is also available in two further versions; the KEDRY A, with a leaning roof; and the KEDRY T, featuring just the bladed roof.

Technogym debuts Excite Climb

design/design-007.jpg Wellness company Technogym says its compact new stair climber, Excite Climb, is ideal for both first-time and more advanced users.

With the option to choose programmes of varying intensity according to specific fitness objectives, Excite Climb also features patent-pending Split Step technology, which guarantees that at least three steps are always available during exercise.

Like all other products in the Excite line, the climber integrates with Technogym’s ‘mywellness’ cloud, automatically saving training data to the users’ cloud-based profile, which can then be viewed from UNITY 3.0 consoles and any personal devices.

Kettal's striking Cala armchair

design/design-008.jpg Inspired by the iconic film ‘Emanuelle’, the high-backed Cala armchair by Doshi Levien offers a majestic spatial presence with transparent and light surfaces.

The seat frame is made from coated aluminium sections and knitted rope, with an open weave providing a latticed window for visual privacy while maintaining a connection to the natural elements.

A range of coatings, rope colours and cushion fabrics offer options for spas to individually tailor the chair to suit their existing interior or exterior décor.

Suitable for outdoor and interior use, the chair is available in two options of teak legs or an aluminium pedestal base.

Florence Roby debuts new collections

design/design-009.jpg Leading uniform designer Florence Roby has unveiled a chic new colourway and a number of fresh styles to its collections.

As well as its uniform portfolio now being available in Taupe, two new tunic styles – Pathos and Amalfi – have been launched along with a new trouser design called the Ankle Grazer.

With more than 40 years of experience in the spa, hair and beauty industries, Florence Roby is a family-run business that offers an extensive range of uniforms made from ethically sourced fabric from UK mills.

The brand’s design trademarks include a selection of flattering cuts that aim to provide optimal comfort and freedom of movement.

MSW Group completes Mineral Steam Bath installation

design/design-010.jpg Recently installed at the luxury spa within the Dachsteinkönig hotel and resort in Gosau, Austria, the Mineral Steam Bath from thermal specialist MSW Group captures the latest technology to provide a truly memorable wellbeing space.

The steam bath utilises three different minerals known for their health-enhancing properties; magnesium chloride to support the skin’s recovery, iodine selenium to strengthen the immune system, and Lithium to aid vitality. Each mineral is individually infused into the steam bath to encourage a deep sense of relaxation.

The cabin walls are made from a durable, double-layered foam panel with a glass-reinforced plastic outer layer that is resistant to bacteria and easy to clean. Highly comfortable, bacteria-resistant seats complete the offering along with a sensor-driven ventilation and steam-generation system that ensures up to nine guests can enjoy a bespoke steam bathing experience.

Dornbracht launches a new way of LifeSpa

design/design-011.jpg Premium bathroom specialist Dornbracht has unveiled its innovative LifeSpa series of products that are perfect for private spa suites.

Focused on promoting a health-conscious lifestyle through the use of water-based activities such as showering, affusions and bathing, the LifeSpa concept is a modular offering with the flexibility to adapt to individual guest needs. Products available can be combined to create a Kneipp effusion zone or a beauty wash-place zone with an affusion pipe and a luxury experience shower.

According to Dornbracht’s CEO Andreas Dornbracht, LifeSpa is a concept that could be easily integrated into spas to provide a new dimension to the guest experience. “LifeSpa draws on centuries of knowledge in Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Kneipp health philosophy,” he explains.

“When a spa’s focus is on administering treatments, it can be easy to overlook the transformative effect of water on our health and wellbeing. Treatments such as affusions, contrast showers, relaxing baths or water massages can contribute to improving wellbeing and boosting energy.

“The pursuit of health increasingly permeates all areas of life and has gone beyond the concepts of a healthy diet and exercise. Spas can ensure they remain relevant to guests by embracing water applications to create a space for health.”
