The mega-trend of health has arrived in German bathrooms. More and more people are using their own bathroom for regeneration. The lecture of Martina Brüßel explains how these changes have an effect on future bathroom design.
Health is one of the current mega-trends and as it has begun to spread into all areas of our lives, it has a growing impact on people and their behaviour. However, “being healthy” does not just mean being free of illness; it also means feeling good in your body and having a healthy work-life-balance. In her lecture Martina Brüßel introduces a mega-trend, that influences private, individual living areas and the associated architecture and design – in particular, bathroom design.
To experience the desired regeneration of body, mind and spirit, more and more people are using their own bathroom. These changes to the importance of the bathroom, as we know it, are becoming more and more evident in its design and features. Water is fundamental to health and therefore makes the bathroom the ideal “health centre”, incorporating Kneipp sessions, sauna courses, steam baths. With a little clever planning, everything is possible in the domestic bathroom.
