Let’s play. We’re out to build  

virtual spaces for the bathroom of tomorro w.  

The modern bathroom is a multifunctional place where elemental needs meet the desire for a little beauty in life, the desire for a sense of security and luxury. High-tech mingles with primordial naturalness, daily routines blend with cleansing rituals. United by design, materials, architecture. 

Pop up my Bathroom gives visions a place to unfold. A team of creatives, experts and trend researchers explores the possibilities that modern bathroom design holds for the bathroom culture of an individualistic society. We gather information, discuss tendencies, allow ideas to take experimental shape. With a realistic background, but with no real barriers.
