IL Bagno is the regional distributor for the world’s leading manufacturers of sanitary ware and bathroom fittings and accessories. We excel in the provision of total bathroom solutions, creating unique and innovative bathroom themes for both the domestic and commercial markets. Incorporated in Nigeria as a private limited liability company, under the name ‘Black Pelican Ltd’ on the 11th of November 2003, we commenced operations in May, 2004.
At IL Bagno, we believe that in addition to its utilitarian significance, the bathroom should provide a relaxing atmosphere, reflecting the taste, personality and lifestyle of our customers; hence our bathroom designs provide the mood and warmth that transform an anonymous interior into a place of elegance – a sanctuary. Before now, the discerning user had little choice in the selection of appropriate fittings to accommodate both functionality and elegance in the bathroom space. Today, IL Bagno, now about 35-man strong, with both technical and management level expatriate staff, presents this choice!
At IL Bagno, we constantly update our skills and processes to meet the needs and expectations of our increasingly discerning clients and stakeholders. This underscores the enormous and consistent customer confidence, loyalty and support we enjoy – the fulcrum of our leadership role on the design landscape.
