Is emotionally inspired home technology the future of interior design?

 
Hansgrohe AXOR Edge

Smart homes of the future past have largely painted a picture of automated domestic chores, robot assistants and instant entertainment.

Is saving time however a truly accurate prediction of what we seek from our homes spaces in a currently unstable world? What does the future of our homes actually look like?..

The evolution of home technology has changed the way in which we interact with our homes on a daily basis, in many ways for the better but as these technologies become increasingly intelligent it’s important to sustain a human connection to the elements of our interiors which bring joy or wellness to our lives.

Often we search for opportunities to streamline our hectic and busy lives but there are some aspects of our daily routine which should be cherished and appreciated, where we take time slow down, stop and rejuvenate.

Hansgrohe -  A new way of living

In a world that never stops our moments of pause, where we retreat and find inner peace, are few and far between however it is possible to combine our daily routines with elements which promote physical and mental well-being.

The future of connected devices is to us, utilising technology to address our physical and mental needs, creating regenerative experiences which relax and restore and improve our lives in valuable ways.

During our most recent inspiration trip to Frankfurts annual ISH exhibition, we discovered a bathroom company with a distinct difference;  Hangrohe, a brand whose values are centered around the emotional and sensory experience of bathing.


At hansgrohe, your needs take centre stage when it comes to product development: our aim is always to make showering and bathing more enjoyable, comfortable place to be. Our guiding principle in product innovation is to produce top quality design which outlasts short-lived fashion trends.

Hansgrohe designs are a luxury to be enjoyed every single day. Powder-Rain showers for example, where thousands of micro droplets are optimised to create a relaxing, spa-like experience in your own home, provide a meditative space as soft droplets with sound as a delicate as a whisper effortlessly encourage a positive and peaceful atmosphere to get lost within.

Utilising the latest innovations in technology Hansgrohe have expertly developed Raintunes, a shower scenario which treats all five senses, combining sounds, light, scent, touch and balance to create various experience’s - ranging from exercise recovery to relaxation after a long day at work. Due for release later this year, this particular sensuous design is one we’re following closely.



Gessi - The Private Wellness Company

Another company we’re eager to embrace within our schemes is designer brand, Gessi. Having manufactured high-end bathroom and kitchen fittings for over 20 years, Gessi are recognised worldwide as ‘ THE designer of water’, mixing H2O with air and light to create environments which provide customisable pleasure for a private and personal home-spa experience.

Gessi’s considered approach to private wellness stems from a clear acknowledgement of multi-sensory feelings and our relationship with water, the pleasure and sustenance it provides on a daily basis - where we renew and connect with our inner-self.


Gessi believes in innovation as a means of fulfilling dreams and anticipating needs. Not limiting itself to the invention of new stylistic solutions for luxury bathroom suites and well-being, Gessi stresses on respecting the environment, with new technologies, new production processes and new materials.

Elements such as bracing hydro massages, including delicate rain showers and waterfalls may be cleverly automatised for a streamlined experience but perhaps one of the brands most exciting developments derives from the concept of chromo-therapy - an alternative medicine or method, which utilises the use of light in the form of colour to balance ‘energy’ within the body, whether this be physical, emotional, spiritual or mental.


Hi-Fi  by Gessi unites design and technology in a contemporary and original collection, perfect for furnishing the bathroom as a room of wellness, beauty and living well.

The  Gessi Architectural Wellness project  is a new concept in design that makes the functions of “wellness of the five senses” modular and customisable, with significant technical advantages.  Binario , the system that inaugurates the new project, envisages the overhead installation of wall mounted tracks, similar to those used in the lighting sector.
