Body & Soul: Peter Ippolito about the bathroom as a material-oriented world of experience


Future bathrooms suggest a lot of connectivity in a place where we usually spend time by ourselves. Digitization is changing our view of things, but in our perception, the bathroom remains a calming retreat from the always-accessible life, a place that fulfils the yearning for oneself. As a material-oriented world of experience, the bathroom thus continues to be the perfect place to harmonize body and soul.

Peter Ippolito studied architecture in Stuttgart and Chicago. During this period, he was employed as the assistant to Prof. Ben Nicholson (Chicago) and gathered practical experience in the Studio Daniel Libeskind (Berlin). In 2002, he founded the Ippolito Fleitz Group together with Gunter Fleitz. The multidisciplinary design studio achieved an international name with interior design, communications and product design projects. In 2015, Peter Ippolito and Gunter Fleitz were accepted as the first German designers from the field of interior design into the 'Interior Design Hall of Fame'. In addition to his design work, Ippolito was active repeatedly as a teacher and is in demand as a speaker or jury member. Peter Ippolito is a member of the German Designer Club.
