The Reece Report: Bringing vanity back


Reece Australia teams up with award-winning design brand Zuster to introduce ISSY Z1 Ballerina and Z8 Butterfly — two luxury hotel-inspired furniture collections set to transform the bathroom

In an exciting collaboration, Reece has teamed up with Australian design brand Zuster, which has expanded its design empire with a bespoke furniture collection for the bathroom. Bringing the Zuster signature style into the bathing space, the ISSY by Zuster collection offers users a fresh and inspired approach to beauty, style and luxury.

ISSY by Zuster encompasses two designs: the Z1 Ballerina vanity and Z8 Butterfly bathroom collection. Conceived by the famed Zuster sisters Wilhelmina McCarroll and Fleur Sibbel, Z1 Ballerina and Z8 Butterfly feature a dream list of bathroom luxuries designed especially for beauty and personal grooming.
According to Reece Bathrooms business manager Daniela Santilli, ISSY by Zuster is a breakthrough for the bathroom.

“It is a collection that has been designed by women for women and addresses all those special details we love about indulgent hotel bathrooms and crave for our own living space,” she says.

“Zuster brings those added touches of luxury into the home bathroom with beautiful, bespoke elements and high-quality finishes.”

ISSY by Zuster is also designed for comfort and convenience. The range addresses all the essential functions of a bathroom while elevating it beyond the everyday with a series of cleverly integrated features.



Marrying ISSY’s commitment to personalisation with Zuster’s bespoke signature style, ISSY by Zuster enables consumers to customise their bathroom furniture right down to the millimetre to suit their space and individual requirements.

“Zuster’s quality manufacture also means that every last detail is carefully considered and beautifully finished — from the bevelled edges on Z8 Butterfly’s tallboy to the luxurious inner lining of the shaving cabinet and concealed make-up drawers,” says Zuster managing director Fleur Sibbel.

“For ISSY by Zuster, we’ve really taken the Zuster DNA and brought it into the bathroom.”


The Z8 Butterfly

The Z8 Butterfly is named for its signature butterfly handle, a custom joinery detail that has been handed down over three generations of Zuster craftspeople.

This homage to traditional cabinetry forms a beautiful counterpoint to Zuster’s very contemporary vision for the bathroom. This comes to life through the addition of cleverly integrated luxuries, such as a dresser bench for sitting, a dedicated shaving cabinet and a tallboy that incorporates a laundry basket.

A set of secret drawers for make-up and accessories are cleverly concealed within the Z8 Butterfly’s adjoining tallboy and slide open with a single touch. A unique and innovative feature is the Z8 Butterfly’s mirrors that, like a pair of wings, open and turn to give a full, round-vision view of your hair and make-up.

“In designing ISSY by Zuster, we really thought about that feeling of hotel luxury and the idea that your home bathroom is your sanctuary,” says Fleur.

“There is also the important element of convenience, the comfort of sitting and the ease of being able to open a drawer for your make-up, hairdryer and laundry. The Z8 Butterfly genuinely solves a frustration we’ve had in the bathroom.”


The Z1 Ballerina

With its beautifully graceful lines and long, tapered legs that appear like a dancer en pointe, the Z1 Ballerina vanity brings new elegance to the bathroom. Made from American oak, the vanity’s lustrous timber grain exudes luxury, quality and contemporary European style. Borrowing from Dutch design influences, the vanity can be paired with a choice of an oval or round mirror for stunning effect.
