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. 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.
This summer is a hot one. We’re desperate
to cool off – in the sea, a crystal-clear mountain lake or the sauna. Sauna? That’s right –
because if you want to cool down, there’s nothing like working up a sweat first.
Visit the Aigai Spa in São Paulo for an unforgettable spa experience in the midst of fascinating architecture that is both modern and in touch with nature. At its heart is the element of water, experienced in all its facets through Dornbracht shower applications and fittings.
With Bilbao, Repabad aims to transform the shower into an infrared cabin and encourage the private bathroom’s evolution into a “health room”.
The new Coco (burgbad) collection conjures up a sense of expressive lightness in small, urban bathrooms.
With S1 Klafs presents the world's first sauna to retract at the touch of a button – just like a zoom lens on a camera.
When summer temperatures begin to climb, there is nothing more enjoyable than dipping into a whirlpool. Blue Moon and Sundeck from Duravit feature refined details and purist design for tingling pleasure from head to foot.
When living relocates outdoors in summer, the daybed, easy chair and coffee table migrate to the patio. But there are other refreshing activities that can be pursued without a roof over your head too. According to the German Sanitary Industry Association (Vereinigung Deutsche Sanitärwirtschaft / VDS), sanitary manufacturers have developed home spa enjoyment in the form of whirlpools to such an extent that moving this particular water feature into the greenery has been no problem for some time now.
With two new variations of its single basins, Dornbracht extends the range of the usages for the Water Units in the kitchen. They supplement the synchronised complete packages of Dornbracht sinks and fittings.
When it's wet and cold outside, cosiness in our own four walls ranks high in the popularity stakes. Then a whirlpool bath is particularly agreeable. With its wide choice of whirlpool systems and bathtubs, Kaldewei enables customers to create their very own feel-good programme.
The days are gradually getting shorter and the Indian summer is just around the corner. Whereas summer is a time for active leisure pursuits, autumn is a good opportunity to withdraw to the cosy atmosphere of one’s own four walls again. Relaxation and regeneration are the order of the day. Wellness enthusiasts, for instance, are often big fans of floating, an activity familiar from hotels and thermal spas. Anyone who wants to let his worries float away at home can now enjoy this particularly relaxing experience in his own bathroom: the Bassino bathtub from Kaldewei is so big that you can actually float in the water.
We’d love to populate our bathroom with plants: flowering, fragrant, rampant plants glistening with beads of water. But seriously: whether we think back to our last holiday by the sea as we enjoy a relaxing bath or step out onto the patio after our morning shower to take a few deep breaths of fresh air – we rarely feel as in touch with nature during the course of our daily routine as we do in the bathroom.
