Bathrooms for young and old


Stylish furnishing trends have no place in the bathroom. Really? Are sanitary facilities still technology-driven and, given the effort required to install them, should they be functional and long-lasting? However, why there are more and more design proposals interpreting the bathroom as a trend-oriented space for living whilst also responding to societal trends, like health consciousness and demographic developments. 


Unrestricted individuality:

Design for all! It is a claim that can be fulfilled with an architecture that adapts to changing needs and allows new possibilities. With its Vital products the Black Forrest based company Duravit wants to enable people with restricted mobility a nearly unrestricted individuality.

Functionality in the most restricted spaces


Guest bathrooms have become an established part of modern life. Nearly half of all German households have such a bathroom, and they are seen as essential when planning new homes.

Nowadays, about half of all the tubs, shower trays and washbasins that leave the factory are individual, made-to-order solutions. For both the bathroom planner and the end customer, this opens up totally new perspectives for bathroom design: a customised bathtub or cut-off corners that allow enough space for the bathroom door to swing open are just as feasible as an upstand that makes a silicone seal along the edge of the tub superfluous.

The wall unit that turns the bathroom into living space


Bathroom furniture specialist Burgbad has developed a new kind of bathroom furniture system in collaboration with designer Marc Sadler: Cconceptwall. Unlike conventional bathroom furniture collections, Cconceptwall is a modular “wall in front of the wall” system. The crucial product benefit Cconceptwall offers is however the, so the manufacturer says, almost infinite combinability of its elements. Similarly to a construction set, the washstands can be combined with deck-mounted or wall-mounted fittings, tall cabinets, mirrors and shelves in various sizes and top panels as required.
