Few get the opportunity to live in a Zaha Hadid-designed luxury home. However, a new collection produced by Zaha Hadid Design and Spanish luxury ceramics specialist Porcelanosa offers those with deep pockets an opportunity to kit out their bathroom with the late architect's signature style.

Hadid created a large body of non-architectural work before her death, including 3D-printed shoes and a dining pavilion.

The Vitae line comprises nine high-end bathroom pieces which are meant to evoke water flow – a natural fit for Hadid's style. Each of the pieces showcase Hadid's signature curves and fluid lines, but the bathtub and mirror set really nail that look.

The handmade toilet and bidet are wall-mounted and connected by a shelf. The mirror unit is the most complex piece, and includes LED lighting, matching basins, vanity units, shelving, and towel rails.

The Vitae line was produced for Noken, which is part of the Porcelanosa Group and will be available for purchase soon. We've contacted the firms involved for a release date and price and await a response, but The Telegraph reports that the taps alone cost £3,000 (US$3,950), so we'd guess that it's going to be at least the price of a new car – maybe a lot more.

The taps alone? Why only quote that? Those sinks seem to go with it. I don't "do" tubs, so where is the shower?
