Who Are VitrA?
VitrA is a Turkish designer and manufacture of bathroom equipment. VitrA in one form or another can trace its heritage back to the early 1900s. Back then though it was producing bathing and fragrances for the famous Turkish Pharmacist üleyman Ferit Eczacibaşi; who started the company.
The Eczacibaşi family after many years successfully operating a growing pharmaceuticals business opened their first ceramic factory in 1958. The name Vitra originates from the word Vitrifying or a vitrified product, as in resembling the hardness and polish of glass; which ceramic is after all. VitrA is not to be confused with the Swiss design company of the same name. It can be a bit confusing but the bathroom manufacturer VitrA has a capital V & A, whereas the Swiss designer is all lower case: vitra.

The Vitra Designer Collection is the pinnacle of design. From the angular look of the T4 range to the smooth lines of the newly introduced Sento. These are the products from VitrA that will make a statement in your bathroom. They are more expensive (but not always, look at the Sento) but they are simply a treat to look at.
