Last day and another full programme at the ISH lecture forum
Pop up my Bathroom Atelier: once again we take a look at the planning of
barrier-free bathrooms from different angles. In addition, the forum will deal
with different types of rainwater utilisation and show how emotionality is
expressed in bathroom design. A round-table discussion with representatives
from the trade, crafts and industry will look at the future of the bathroom
before Stefan Seitz (Director ISH) concludes the programme with a summary of
ISH 2023 and an outlook for ISH 2025.
11:00-11:30 h: The 10 most important trends in the bathroom
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: From 8 to eighty: planning and building barrier-free bathrooms
Speaker: Martin Schäpermeier (Kaldewei)
bathrooms are subject to special demands. They should be practical, facilitate
the workflow of the care staff, and meet special ergonomic requirements for
carers and those being cared for. Often the bathroom is used by several
generations in one house. The feel-good effect often falls by the wayside
compared to safety, handling or cleaning aspects. But: design and function do
not have to be a contradiction. In his lecture, Martin Schäpermeier
demonstrates his motto: care, safety and hygiene – all this can be beautiful.
11:30-12:00 h: Rainwater harvesting
Speaker: Carsten Stremmel (Wilo)
More information to follow.
12:15-13:00 h: Industry talk: Barrier-free accessibility in the bathroom
Host: Daniela Heinemann (ABB)
A barrier-free bathroom is the key to a self-determined life for as long as possible. The only problem is that only 1.5 percent of all homes in Germany are nearly barrier-free and the gap between demand and supply will widen considerably in the coming years due to demographic change. It is therefore high time to build more barrier-free bathrooms. The panel discussion aims to show that an accessible bathroom is profitable for users of all ages. Intelligently and foresightedly planned, equipped with multifunctional products and harmoniously designed, it can be a chic oasis of well-being at the same time. In addition to the planning approaches, the topics of subsidies and free advice and support services will also be the focus of the discussion.
13:15-13:45 h: Emotional bathroom design: an aesthetic oasis for the soul
Speaker: Torsten Müller (TM Designbad)
Atmosphere and experience in the modern bathroom, trends and innovations in luxurious bathroom furnishings, innovative technologies for emotional bathroom experiences: In his lecture, Torsten Müller will look at the bathroom as a place of pure harmony and a source of relaxation and regeneration. The bathroom planner will explain how design expertise and innovative technology can help turn the bathroom into an oasis that envelops all the senses. His outlook on the future of the bathroom will show that the concept of "emotional design" is becoming increasingly important and what the bathroom as a place of relaxation and regeneration has to offer.
14:00-14:45 h: The future of the bathroom: the Trades, Dealers and Industry 4.0
Host: Jens J. Wischmann (VDS)
The final talk of the lecture programme at ISH 2023
deals with the changes that all sales levels will face in the future when it
comes to bathrooms. A high demand for renovation, especially for bathrooms for
the older generation, considerably higher prices for industry, trade and
craftsmen, which place numerous restrictions on consumers' renovation
intentions and, in addition, ecological requirements and the desire for
comfort-oriented individual bathrooms.
15:00-15:15 h: Conclusion and Outlook, Welcome ISH 2025
ISH talk with Stefan Seitz (Messe Frankfurt) and Jens J. Wischmann (VDS)
