With exotic feature surfaces of marble and an aged metal look finish, there's not really much point in detracting with fussy details. Push-to-open cabinets and integrated vanity function both play their part in this bathroom.

From the designer:

For this ensuite the owners wanted a contemporary look with a touch of lux. They also wanted no /or minimal surfaces to clean, ie glass or mirror.

The bathroom also had to tie into the house and relate to kitchen. Lastly they wanted no or few doors or to create an easy flow.

Overall, the space was to feel roomy and airy; simple and uncluttered.

To achieve this I used rich timber and gold Calacutta marble, mixed with aged brass elements.

The custom-cut gold Calacutta chevron-patterned marble feature wall is contrasted with large-format 2400x1200 gold Calacutta-look tiles in the shower area for easy cleaning.

We eliminated glass from the room by designing the space with a divider wall and walk-in shower and toilet area.

The timber floors in bedroom now flow into the bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. In another unifying move to meet the brief, the gold Calacutta is matched to the kitchen island stone.

Lastly, I made the dividing wall into a 2400h storage unit with a gold Calacutta marble surround on all four sides. The unit has Metalier aged-aged bronze, paneled push-to-open doors

The storage/dividing wall is home to towel storage, cosmetics, makeup, mirrors, powerpoints and towel hooks. So everything is easy access and the wall effectively works like a large vanity when opened. Naturally, this arrangement avoids on-show clutter in the room.

The simple basins in Oman stone stone match the bath and are presented as pieces of art, standing alone alone on a stained timber top.
