Introduction of Diamatec technology

Ideal Standard, one of the leading providers of innovative bathroom solutions operating across Europe, Middle East and Africa, is proudly introducing Ipalyss – an exceptional range of vessels. The high-end, ultra-thin design product range was made possible through the creation of an extremely durable ceramic material, Diamatec.

Drawing on over 100 years of ceramic expertise, combined with an unsurpassed quality in craftsmanship, inspired by Bernard de Palissy, the famous 16th Century French ceramicist who relentlessly pursued the secrets of very fine ceramics, designers at Ideal Standard investigated. The result of their research and development was a new material, Diamatec, whose exceptional robustness allows designers to achieve the near impossible: Extremely thin, straight edges that are extremely robust and durable—a highly challenging and complex combination. 

Diamatec was developed using a unique blend of specially refined materials. Thorough research and development was conducted to reach the ideal combination of finely ground alumina— a versatile ceramic material known for its strength— pre-fired clays, and the perfect blend of sodium and potassium. The result: Unprecedented strength and durability, even in the most thin and precise designs. A new glazing system was developed to complement this innovation, ensuring its tight radius was maintained. Diamatec was born.

The Ipalyss range of vessels is supplied in three configurations: a vessel without overflow, which maximizes internal volume; a vessel with overflow, and one with overflow & a deck. The overflow in these vessels has been thoughtfully integrated into the design. The result is a discreet, slotted design that does not compromise the clean lines and minimalism of the piece.

‘Light design’ is an important influence in fields as varied as architecture, manufacturing, and fashion. Products in the Ipalyss range are especially well suited for demanding environments, such as hotels, where an effective combination of aesthetics and durability is of paramount importance. The design maximizes available vessel space resulting in an enhanced user experience. The striking aesthetics of our Ipalyss range were developed in collaboration with the award-winning British designer, Robin Levien and his design studio, who have been designing for Ideal Standard for 30 years.
