Well-being – hotel bathrooms designed for relaxation
In an age of 24-hour digital communication, time-out is becoming a luxury item, and the desire to slow down is growing. This is a challenge, especially for hotels, where the desire for reachability and recreation, and for on- and off times is equally pronounced. Well-being is a keyword in the hotel industry. Guests should feel both at home and impressed, and architecture and design both contribute decisively to this.
In hotel bathrooms, the trend is even stronger towards small wellness temples with entertainment value. Villeroy & Boch offers a large variety of design colours and shapes, as well as customizable products. Collections such as Artis, Aveo New Generation, Loop&Friends, My Nature and Squaro Edge 12 provide architects and hotel planners with wide design scope thanks to innovative materials such as Quaryl® and TitanCeram as well as room-specific colours and decors.
Since many hotels are increasingly opting for a compact design, flexible bathroom solutions are in demand. Villeroy & Boch guarantees country-specific requirements – from a compact model to a comfortable XL version in the Architectura and Subway 2.0 collections.
But beautiful and functional bathroom products alone are not enough; they must also be comfortable and intelligent. Integrated technology, enabling, for example, room fixtures and fittings to be operated using a smartphone, enhance comfort. For this reason, Villeroy & Boch offers the innovative ViSound sound-system with its Quaryl® and acrylic bathtubs. It comprises four powerful structure-borne sound transducers that use the tub, whether empty or full, as a resonance chamber. In addition, there is a receiver that plays back multimedia files from Bluetooth-enabled devices. The result is an exceptional sound experience that is not only heard but also felt in the water.
