When it comes to colour, the industry
is awakening from the deep sleep it appeared to fall into following the
Bahama Beige and Moss Green trauma of the 1970s. After the 1980s, with its
glossy bathrooms in colours ranging from trendy to way-out, only white was
deemed acceptable. Over the last 20 years, cottage style, urban minimalism
and snug wood effects have gradually injected a bit more pep into the bathroom
again. Now the color choice in the bathroom is slowly becoming as individual as
the people who set it up.
Color is also an important design element of
the new rgb furniture system from burgbad. The designer Stefan Diez has
developed an innovative system that can be assembled from transparent, colored
glass elements. “Our rgb furniture system doesn’t
create order by shutting things away but by monochrome effects,” explains the
designer. In an interview with design
journalist Frank A. Reinhardt, Stefan Diez talks about the megatrend of colour
in the bathroom and the appeal of his design for Burgbad.
