VitrA Bathrooms Now On Love That Design

Born and raised in the cultural motherland of ceramics and baths, a.k.a. the ‘hammams’ – VitrA is among only a few brands in the world that offers every component of the bathroom as well as an extensive range of ceramic and porcelain tiles. We are proud to have them on board Love That Design!

The flagship brand of the prominent Turkish Industrial Group Eczacıbaşı, VitrA is a leading manufacturer of high quality sanitaryware and bathroom accessories in over 75 countries across the world. The brand also produces innovative bathroom products which combine modern technology with world-class designs to meet the style, standards, and demands of the 21st Century.

A bit about the brand

Founded during World War II in 1942, the Eczacıbaşı Group started up as a ceramic workshop led by Dr. Nejat F. Eczacıbaşı, in Kartal, Istanbul. At its conception, the workshop only produced tableware and ornaments with eight working employees assisting the business. However, after the war ended, the brand grew rapidly in parallel with Turkey’s economic growth and urbanization. The consumers’ demand for bathroom products such as wash basins and toilets also increased, thus pushing the brand to open a bigger production facility in 1958, and in 1966 the brand eventually took its current name, VitrA.

Today, with a capacity to develop and manufacture all the products that may be needed in a bathroom, VitrA secures its position in the industry by giving priority to research and development, and working with leading international designers.

With its worldwide reach, the brand produces over 6 million pieces of sanitaryware each year, distributed to over 75 countries around the world.

Superior quality and reliable versatility are hallmarks of the VitrA brand firmly rooted in a long tradition of innovation. Coupled with a resolve to meet the challenges of urban living through constant multi-disciplinary investigations into needs, desires and choices, they serve as a fountainhead of ideas to release the true potential of bathroom design in modern urban architecture.

The brand also develops innovative products for unique bathroom experience and an extensive range of tiles for a world where needs and tastes are growing ever closer, and ever more singular at the same time, with an unshakable commitment to sustainability.

These are some of the main reasons for VitrA’s rising success as an exciting brand across the world.
