If there’s one area of a building that’s been getting more attention than usual of late, it’s undoubtedly the bathroom. With our heightened awareness of hygiene, bacteria and, ultimately, the spread of coronavirus, many building owners, interior designers and bathroom manufacturers are having to factor in new design ideas. We’re all feeling vulnerable to the potential effects of COVID-19; however, toilets inevitably still need to be used.
Of course, home use and sanitation are easily controlled, but when you’re looking at public WCs that are used by hundreds of people day in, day out; it’s an entirely different ballpark. This month, we have talked to leading bathroom manufacturer Geberit about what the future holds for the bathroom post-lockdown. Geberit’s Channel Marketing Manager, Sophie Weston, discusses why a new era of bathroom design could be on the horizon – and how existing product design and innovation can help shape the future for interior designers and architects.
Elsewhere, while many of us aren’t comfortable travelling and with more quarantine restrictions coming into play, we head to the skies and uncover a recent scheme by Interior Designer, Rodney Lawrence. At approximately 27m², a Gulfstream G550 jet aircraft has received a complete makeover thanks to Rodney and the team.
