Andrés Martínez manages to turn a prosaic and functional bathroom accessory into a stunning design statement for Barcelona's Nomon Home. Inspired by art gallery display pedestals, Towel Stand features a circular platform and matching base of precious marble in a choice of varieties, each with its own unique veined pattern. While the shelf holds bath-time necessities, rotating metal towel bars in polished brass or matte black complement the walnut or stained-ash structure.

One of Europe’s most vibrant design hives seems an apt point of origin for this standout collection of sleek furniture pieces and sybaritic accessories that reflect a marriage of superb craftsmanship and noble materials like luminous marble, solid woods and adroit metalwork.
Nomon Home unveiled its first collection in 2016, an offshoot of the striking modernist wall clock business founded 15 years earlier by José María Reina. The celebrated creative is part of the pioneering generation that brought the Spanish port city to the forefront as a vibrant design hive.
This “Home” arm is now under the design direction Andrés Martínez and Stefano Bigi. Cordoba-born Andrés hails from a family with a discerning jewelry tradition; Stefano is of French origin and educated in Italy. Their combined influences are reflected in the high standards of metal work and craftsmanship, and use of luxe materials. So, too, in the decided emphasis on living the good life—from valet stands and pedestal mirrors for a dressing area, to a bar station and standing Champagne bucket for entertaining.
