The Australian bathroom industry has received an injection of sophisticated cool with the launch of Formed, a local manufacturer of luxury bathroom products. Formed’s flagship product is the Bento Bath – a freestanding piece that exudes elegant simplicity.
The Bento has a distinctive design that gives the modern bathroom a luxurious touch. Its strong lines are tempered by the subtle curves on the corners, and its remarkable depth creates an indulgent sense of space.
“As its name suggests, the design of the Bento Bath was inspired by a recent trip to Japan, where a modern Japanese bento box caught my eye. The elegant design of this everyday container struck me as the perfect inspiration for our flagship bath,” said Stephen Royce, Product Designer, Formed.
The genius of the Bento, aside from its breathtaking design, lies in its adaptability. There are three standard sizes and a range of colours to choose from. What’s more, given that it is designed and made to order in Australia, it can be completely customised to fit any bathroom design.
Built using the finest Corian® stone, the Bento is one of the best baths on the market for heat retention and strength. The Corian® stone has been environmentally certified with GREENGUARD® and NSF International.

Formed’s luxury bathroom products are designed and made in Australia using the very best materials. The introductory range of distinctive freestanding baths, shower bases and shower screens are both useful and aesthetically striking.
“We plan to refresh our product range at least every quarter, to stay at the forefront of contemporary bathroom design, so it is very much a matter of ‘watch this space’,” said Royce.
Formed was created by Royce when he identified a gap in the local market. “We aim to be the very best luxury bathroom furniture company in Australia, one that both designs and manufactures our products locally,” he said.
Royce draws on an extensive background in the bathroom and design industries, having previously worked for Reece, Showerline and Frik Design (Oslo).
