Let’s play. We’re out to build  

virtual spaces for the bathroom of tomorrow. 

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.

We gather information, discuss tendencies, allow ideas to take experimental shape. With a realistic background, but with no real barriers.

Interview Andreas Dornbracht - Part 1:"Barrier-free is a term, that doesn’t whet people’s appetite"

Andreas Dornbracht is regarded as one of the most progressive thinkers in his industry. For a fittings and accessories manufacturer, the family company of the same name that he co-runs has provided an unusual amount of impetus for an integral approach to bathroom design.
