Soema > Italian handcrafted technology is made available in the U.S. with electronic integrated washbasins and sleek European-styled glass cubicles, doors and lockers. Choose from CARVART’s dazzling array of colors and materials to fit your design aesthetic and desired functionality.
CARVART’s CEO, Edward Geyman, discovered Soema at a rest stop along a major Italian highway and immediately saw the potential for their sleek European styling in the U.S. market. The beautiful modern restroom had tempered glass cubicles and trough-type sinks that looked elegant but obviously withstood high traffic. Edward copied down the manufacturer’s name and immediately contacted them. That was the beginning of CARVART by SOEMA, a collaboration that brings the handcrafted technology of Italy-based Soema to the United States.
CARVART glassBOX offers bathroom cubicles in a dazzling array of standard colors as well as saturated white and black, neutrals and any RAL color upon request. The tempered laminated glass panels in smooth or satin finish appear light and delicate, yet resist scratches, atmospheric changes and the repeated abuse of high-traffic installations.
Ergonomically designed locks feature lever and stainless steel mechanisms and are fitted with a free/engaged privacy indicator. Anodized aluminum hardware has an adjustable hydraulic self-closing pivot that allows for the smooth opening of the large doors on discreet but heavy-duty pedestals. The system offers optional nano-technological treatment to resist fingerprints and repel pollutants and is easily washable to support a hygienic environment.
The cubicles project a high-end sophisticated look, yet are affordably priced. CARVART offers complete customization and turnkey project management from coordination with ADA codes through installation. We also offer coordinating glass doors and lockers, washbasins (with integrated electronic soap dispenser, faucet and hand dryer) and electronic toilet control systems.
glassBOX–T cubicles have vertical dividing panels that extend beyond the frontal plane, forming a visual of elegantly connected compartments with privacy trim, gender neutral.
glassBOX–F has a flush frontal plane that is secured to an overhead stabilization bar and decorative side panel, with anodized privacy trim between each door and divider panel, gender neutral.
stoneBOX fits perfectly in sanitary areas where a combination of functionality, hygiene and design elegance is required. stoneBOX combines colored glass with a marble or stone effect porcelain panel, creating a two-sided composition that is resistant to hard use in high traffic sanitary areas. The composition consists of matching 3/16" tempered glass, available in 26 standard colors or any RAL color upon request, with 3/16" porcelain which dominates the exterior perspective for an exceptionally natural and sophisticated look.
CARVART Compact High Pressure Phenolic Laminate (cHPL) cubicles have been carefully designed and manufactured in order to obtain a product with unique features and enhanced quality standards. Numerous innovative options have been devised to create and divide specific areas intended for bathrooms and changing rooms where hygiene is matched by a high aesthetic value. These gender neutral cubicles provide complete privacy.
Why cHPL Cubicles? One of the greatest strengths of CARVART cHPL cubicles lies on the fact that they are not only easy to assemble, aesthetically pleasing and functional but that they also allow easy access for maintaining purposes. On the contrary, brick or concrete structures are particularly difficult to remove when damage needs to be detected, they occupy more space and have to be integrated with other types of furnishings.
The new edition to our cHPL cubicle family, the Full Height floor-to-ceiling system brings all the benefits of the cHPL cubicles while creating a seamless and expansive gender neutral look. Providing better privacy, with its concealed invisible hardware, the cHPL Full Height takes cubicles to the next level. Available up to 10' high, as floor-to-ceiling or with legs at the bottom for easier cleaning or ADA code. Offered in multiple color or “woodgrain” choices.
Integra is a sleek Italian-designed integrated system of solid surface and glass washbasins, faucets and high-tech multiconsoles. Extremely functional, durable and practical, Integra has the look of a modern piece of furniture. The smooth, flowing basin shapes allude to the fluidity of water and juxtapose with the geometric lines and chromed surfaces of faucets and multiconsole dispenser units to create a harmonious contemporary visual.
The self-contained washbasins can be installed individually or in rows of two or three. All mechanical elements of the trough-type basin are recessed behind the backsplash and not under the basin for a streamlined appearance. The water spouts can be removed for ease of inspection and maintenance. Soap is easy to supply, as is the servicing for maintenance. The thoroughly modern materials and fluid styling make it a design focal point but Integra also offers important hygienic benefits in high-traffic public bathrooms because users don’t need to touch the hardware.
INTEGRA–B is a combination of the continuous trough-type solid surface washbasin with an attached backsplash that bears the sensors and electronic multiconsole. The multiconsole, constructed from a solid 1/2" chromed brass plate, integrates an electronic soap dispenser, water faucet and hand dryer into one unit. Stylish mirrors are fitted with backlit LED lights that shows users where to place their hands by illuminating the designations of “Soap,” “Water” and “Air.”

Stylish mirrors are fitted with backlit LED lights that shows users where to place their hands by illuminating the designations of “Soap,” “Water” and “Air.” A wall-mounted solid surface backsplash supports the multiconsole, a 1/2" thick chromed brass plate integrating a soap dispenser, water faucet and hand dryer into one unit. The multiconsole also serves as a shelf. Discreet sensors under the shelf direct the functionality.

Our glassDOOR product line provides a full range of colors in laminated, tempered glass that is resistant to scratches, cleaning detergents and atmospheric agents since all colored areas are between glass panels. The ecological approach is evident from the raw materials and ingredients used to create the structures, which will also contribute to make public sanitary areas more attractive and enjoyable.
The glassDOOR line is not just a passive product; they are a stylish and harmonious solution to match the glass environments we create. The hardware is in anodized aluminum with a protective finish. The benefits of the glassDOOR is they provide all necessities in any sanitary project, giving the possibility to the architect or designer to have spherical glass solutions from one source.
The glassLOCKER product line follows the total glass environment philosophy and offers the richness of glass for its true design aesthetic.
The series of lockers has been devised to furnish and embellish changing rooms by paying special attention to structural strength and elegant design styling. The structure in Compact High Pressure Phenolic Laminate (cHPL) provides durability, while the doors in 1/4" thick glass open to 180 degrees by means of self-lubricating hinges in anodized aluminum. The ledge profiles are equipped with rubber gaskets throughout the length of each door acting as shock absorbers. Locker bodies have built in slits to ensure adequate airflow for proper ventilation and drainage of any liquids.
The numbering on each door is laser printed on stainless steel plates or on special order, printed/etched on the glass doors. The lockers can be arranged either in sets of 1/2/3 columns or in a single column solution that has a modular configuration.
Further available options:
Particularly useful for changing rooms facilities, Compact High Pressure Phenolic Laminate (cHPL) lockers are available in a wide range of configurations, woodgrains and colors to suit customer needs. cHPL locker panels and doors are scratch-resistant with smoothed edges and rounded angles. Options have been devised in order to optimize space: with flat or sloping hood, with clean/dirty compartments, with forced air suction systems and with different types of inside compartments. The structure of the lockers is equipped with slits to ensure adequate airflow and/or drainage of liquids.
