At this year’s
leading trade shows, like here at the ISH, a trend towards a new and colourful
character in bathroom design is emerging. The leading manufacturers are going back to their
design roots and focusing on the classics again: snow white, dove grey,
cappuccino brown or greige – a colour that’s not as warm as beige but not as
cold as grey. The new shades stand for enduring
versatility and elegance.
As a result, the new
colourways are the ideal complement to the philosophy of modern bathroom
planning, which tailors the bathroom design to customers’ needs like a bespoke
suit – a distinctive and perfectly fitting second skin.
Paring down is
another trend. It’s based on the growing desire for peace
and relaxation in an increasingly digital world. Additional stimuli are blanked out, allowing body and
soul to recover and regenerate. That zeitgeist is also reflected in the
contemporary design language of today’s bathroom components, which permits
greater individuality than ever before.
As a result,
materials and their qualities are also playing a more prominent role in the
design. Upmarket wood, pure natural stone and the
finest ceramic are being used in an unadulterated way that shines a spotlight
on the authentic soul of the products. In addition, smart home technology is
bringing an abundance of new functions to bathroom design.
