On the second day of the ISH, the
Pop up my Bathroom Atelier lecture forum will once again offer a full
programme. Today's focus is the Speed Briefing, where 10 exhibiting companies
will have the opportunity to present their ISH highlight in a short presentation.
The programme will also begin today with the 10 most important trends in the
bathroom. In the CEO Talks on Tuesday, the CEOs of hansgrohe and Duravit will
answer the questions of the SHK-TV presenters. The Trend Talks will focus on
wellbeing and colours in the bathroom, a topic that will also be treated as an
impulse lecture. A lecture on bathroom design in different cultures rounds off
the day's programme.

Speaker: Frank A. Reinhardt (FAR.consulting)
With the daily lecture on the 10 most important
trends in the bathroom, the Pop up my Bathroom Atelier starts its fifth
edition. Which trends influence the function and appearance of the bathroom?
Trend researcher and design journalist Frank A. Reinhardt describes the four
current ISH trends - Emotional, Sustainable, Wellbeing and Tiny Bathroom - and
identifies the developments that are relevant for the bathroom.
10:45-11:15 h: The latest colour trends in the bathroom
Speaker: Dr. Hildegard Kalthegener (Farbstudio Dr. K.)
Gentle, sweet and soft
or as strong as stone, playful and feminine or functional and minimalist,
mysterious and rich in atmosphere - the enormous potential of colour design in
the bathroom can be lived in an extremely versatile way. Dr. Hildegard
Kalthegener (Farbstudio Dr. K.) provides current insights into colour
developments for walls, objects and fittings: a basis on which the audience can
decide which trends suit them individually and which they can safely skip.
11:30-11:50 h: CEO Talk with Hans Jürgen Kalmbach (hansgrohe)
Host: Inga Wegemann (SHK-TV)

Celebrate Change, collaborations with renowned designers and his company's

12:00-12:30 h: Bathroom design in different cultures
Speaker: Erdem Akan (VitrA Bad)
Bathing culture can be traced back
to very early ages of human history. The inventions in the last two centuries
led us to the modern bathroom as we know it today. Bathroom design has been
shaped by many factors, mostly technical limitations. However, it is important
to take cultural aspects into consideration as well. Every country has its own traditions and take on
self-care. In his lecture, Erdem Akan takes a look at the different bathing cultures.
12:45-13:30 h: Trend talk: Colours in the bathroom
Host: Frank A. Reinhardt (FAR.consulting)
In 2019, the Colour
Selection at the ISH heralded a new colour era for the bathroom. Since then,
the industry has responded to the desire for individually designed bathrooms
with a growing variety of surfaces. In addition to wood, natural stone and new
types of metallic surfaces for fittings, furniture and accessories play a
particularly important role. But lacquer finishes in all RAL colours in matt or
high gloss are also quite common. In the Trend Talk Colours in the Bathroom, we
take a look at current developments and venture a glimpse into the colourful
future of the bathroom.

behind the wall, whether a new furniture collection, an innovative fitting or a
groundbreaking new material: the speed briefing offers a perfect overview of

15:45-16:05 h: CEO-Talk with Stephan Tahy (Duravit)

President and General Manager at Mattel Inc. The father of two was born and

16:15-17:00 h: Trend Talk: Wellbeing Bathroom
Host: Jens J. Wischmann (VDS).
Wellness has been a
keyword for years when it comes to turning one's own bathroom into a private
spa. However, if you look at the bathroom holistically, other components are
added to "wellness": mindfulness, taking time, being active, a tidy
home, healthy eating, simplicity. The panel discusses wellbeing as a lifestyle
trend that not only seeks relaxation but also promotes meaningful activities
and how the home bathroom can support this trend?
