With TitanCeram, Villeroy & Boch has created a new kind of ceramic material, which combines delicate forms with unusually stability. The secret is the fusion of ceramic materials and titanium dioxide. The material now was used for the new bathroom collection Finion. The design of this collection is made by Patrick Frey, who is renowned for his unusual yet useful combinations of form and function in his works. In the interview, Patrick Frey talks the work with the material ceramic and the new collection.
Health is one of the current mega-trends and as it has begun to spread into all areas of our lives, it has a growing impact on people and their behaviour. However, â€śbeing healthyâ€ť does not just mean being free of illness; it also means feeling good in your body and having a healthy work-life-balance. In her lecture Martina BrĂĽĂźel introduces a mega-trend, that influences private, individual living areas and the associated architecture and design â€“ in particular, bathroom design.
Whether it is for singles, families, or seniors â€“ the modern bathroom should meet everyoneâ€™s needs. It should be a stylish oasis of wellbeing, a childproof experimental space, and a safe haven all in one. In addition, we want to adapt it to our various needs. Trend researchers say that, in the future, variable floor plans and modern installation systems could enhance the bathroomâ€™s versatility so much that it will be more easily adaptable to the lives of its users â€“ provided, of course, that there are opportunities and adequate space for renovation.
