GROHE SPA crafts water sanctuary during milan design week 2024

grohe spa’s Aquatectures INSTALLATION for milan design week 2024

 

With over 30,000 visitors, the Red Dot ‘Best of the Best’ awarded GROHE SPA installation at the Pinacoteca di Brera left a lasting impression on Milan Design Week 2023. Building on this success, GROHE is returning for Milan Design Week 2024 with an immersive experience in one of Milan’s most prestigious locations: the Palazzo Reale. The former royal palace near the Duomo serves as a cultural nexus and is home to international art exhibitions – the ideal scenery for its premium sub-brand GROHE SPA and the celebration of the revitalizing power of water.

From April 16-21, the courtyard of Milan’s historic Palazzo Reale will undergo a transformation into an exhibition space. Conceived by the in-house LIXIL Global Design and Brand Identity team, the installation pays tribute to the history of the building by evoking its past and interweaving it with the contemporary GROHE SPA ‘Salus per aquam’ (Latin for ‘Health through Water’) concept.

 

‘We are proud to be a part of Milan Design Week once again. This occasion offers us an ideal platform for meaningful engagement and exchange with architects and designers, fostering mutual inspiration. Our objective transcends a mere product presentation; rather, we aspire to cultivate a holistic experience that underlines the essence of GROHE SPA: the belief that water is the source of vital energy,’ says Karl Lennon, Leader GROHE SPA, LIXIL EMENA.

a sanctuary at the heart of milan

 

Crafting a sanctuary of well-being in the heart of Milan, the immersive experience based on ‘Aquatectures’ fuses water and architecture. The visitors will be taken through four spaces embodying the essence of the sub-brand and its carefully curated bathroom solutions. The experience should underscore the significance and importance of water in architecture and the health and well-being benefits this infusion can bring.

 

‘Each ‘Aquatecture’ represents one of the four tiers that bring GROHE SPA to life. From tier one the most exclusive and customizable solution utilizing 3D metal-printing to create bespoke 1 of 1 designs, to luxury material collaborations and trend setting colors, materials and finishes,’ explains Patrick Speck, Leader, LIXIL Global Design EMENA.
