GROHE will showcase selected pieces of its premium sub-brand GROHE SPA at the world’s biggest annual design event from 16th – 21st April. Crafting a sanctuary of well-being in the heart of Milan, the immersive experience based on “Aquatectures” fuses water and architecture to bring the GROHE SPA “Health through Water” concept to life. The installation at the prestigious Palazzo Reale is paying tribute to the history of the former royal palace’s courtyard garden.

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, a leading global brand for complete bathroom solutions and kitchen fittings, is returning this year with a new 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 GROHE SPA’s celebration of the revitalising power of water.

“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.

GROHE - Milan Design Week 2023

From 16th-21st April, the courtyard of the Palazzo Reale itself will undergo a metamorphosis 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” concept.

“Inspired by the former courtyard garden and in line with the motto of the Fuorisalone ‘Materia Natura’, we are aiming to blend nature and architecture to create a sensory journey focusing on the element of water. Visitors will be taken through our innovative concept of ‘Aquatecture’ spaces, experiencing the essence of our brand and our carefully curated bathroom solutions. We intend to elevate 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 customisable solution utilising 3D metal-printing to create bespoke designs, to luxury material collaborations and trend setting colours, materials and finishes,” explains Patrick Speck, Leader, LIXIL Global Design EMENA.

This year’s edition of the Workspace Design Show (27 – 28 February 2024, Business Design Centre, London), presents an impressive array of features. These bring together some of the industry’s leading designers, architects and built environment partners and range from an immersive forest stage to an interactive lighting installation. Altogether, 2024’s features represent an incredible spectacle for attendees of the Show, which has become a must-visit event for office interiors professionals since its inception in 2021.

Design Talks Lounge by Gensler

Curated by Gensler, the design concept for the Design Talks Lounge at the Workspace Design Show 2024 delves into the overarching theme, ‘Bloom – Exploring the Thriving Ecosystem of Work Life’. This engaging experience aims to shed light on and draw inspiration from nature, encouraging a positive perspective on the evolving worlds of work and life. Established and independent furniture consultants, Hunters, have partnered with sustainably-focussed firms to help bring this feature to life. Office plant suppliers Exubia plays a central role with eye-capturing biophilic design, seamlessly merging live planting with innovative moss elements. This is complemented by a 66-metre custom printed fabric backdrop provided by Kvadrat, featuring a forest design and crafted by the incredibly skilled seamstresses at Waverley. The flooring, supplied by Material Hangout and Mogu, known for its bio-based solutions, reinforces the Design Talks Lounge’s environmental ethos, with the furniture carefully selected from Andreu World, a firm renowned for its commitment to sustainability, with products made from biodegradable and compostable properties. To extend the life cycle and impact of the design of the feature, post-event will see the redistribution of the plants and furniture featured, while the fabric finds a second life in charity projects, ensuring a sustainable and waste-free approach.

Entrance by tp bennett

Entrance by tp bennett

Architectural, design and planning practice tp bennett is responsible for the design of the feature at the entrance to Workspace Design Show 2024. A series of elegant columns is arranged in a conceptual maze, serving as a symbolic representation of the intricate ecosystem of work life. Each column embodies the essence of ‘Bloom’ – another nod to the event’s theme. They stand tall and varied, representing the diversity of experiences and challenges often experienced in life and at the same time, the structures symbolize the growth, development and resilience of trees in a garden. As you navigate through the varied paths, you encounter different sculptural pieces created by Aectual, each one illustrating a delicate bloom, composed of recycled sustainable materials and textured 3D printed surfaces with accompanying organic biophilia provided by Vantage Spaces and Planteria, both experts in biophilic design & office planting. Vantage Spaces are using preserved foliage, which is harvested sustainably using natural dyes to preserve the stems and ensure they are VOC free, 100% natural & biodegradable. Overall, this conceptual maze invites contemplation on the organic nature of career progression, encouraging individuals to appreciate the beauty and resilience inherent in their professional journey. The feature is finished with a captivating modular, linear lighting system, subtly integrated by iGuzzini with contemporary textiles from Kvadrat and specialist plant lighting from Soltech.

Occupiers Forum Lounge

Insights Lounge by BDP

Both the Occupiers Forum and the Sustainability Works sessions will be held in the Insights Lounge, designed exclusively by Lisa Pasi, graduate interior designer with international architects practice BDP. Also addressing the theme of, ‘Bloom’, Pasi’s concept will focus on the symbiotic relationship between man and nature. Hunters once again play a key role in terms of sourcing sustainable partners. Pasi’s vision promotes the purpose and validity of using natural materials within the workplace environment. To this end, wood and stone are not only aesthetically pleasing and foster a sense of warmth but also positively influence mood and well-being. Says Lisa Pasi, “Despite being constantly reminded of our connection to nature through our senses, this association tends to diminish when we find ourselves indoors, surrounded by artificial light and synthetic materials. Therefore, by adhering to biophilic design principles, the inclusion of natural materials will establish a connection to nature, bolstering concentration, creativity, and job satisfaction.” The sustainable credentials of flooring firms Mogu, Material Hangout and Ege carpets also underpin the concept. Overall, visitors to the Insights Lounge can enjoy a tactile experience and encounter the customisable options and unique qualities of natural materials, which are sure to enrich the overall comfort and engagement of individuals in the workplace.

Jason Bruges Studio

Living Workplace lighting installation

Jason Bruges Studio presents two interactive lighting prototypes on the theme of ‘Living Workplace’. Each prototype is a 1:1 section of an existing, full-scale permanent artwork. The first prototype, called Energy Dynamics, originally developed for the Ukrainian energy company DTEK, uses technology for storytelling. The second prototype entitled The Experience Tunnel, was created for trading firm XTX Markets and introduces interaction to foster human connection and collaboration.

Recharge Lounge

Recharge Lounge

M Moser Associates has crafted a captivating oasis featuring the exquisite Pebble Rubble modular seating range from Italian furniture manufacturer Moroso that transports us to a serene forestscape. Amidst the lively atmosphere of the Workspace Design Show, visitors will have the opportunity to be immersed in nature-inspired surroundings, where tranquillity and rejuvenation seamlessly converge. As the name suggests, the Recharge Lounge offers an opportunity to reset, refuel, recharge with Electrosonic also partnering to provide an experience where architecture, storytelling and technology connect in this enchanting retreat.

Collectively, these features will form a key part of Workspace Design Show 2024 and promote meaningful discussions around the future of workplace, particularly in terms of best practice in sustainability. Register now to attend Workspace Design Show.

TECH EDEN, This Edition’s Inspiration Theme: Adapting Your Projects to Tomorrow’s Challenges

Contemporary aesthetics have no choice but to adapt to the challenges of tomorrow, and new projects give a special place to nature. New technologies, essential to their implementation, are driving ever greater creativity and innovation. The Show’s Trend Forum, orchestrated by Peclers Paris, analyses, and interprets these developments, reflecting this season’s theme, TECH EDEN. Immerse in the hospitality of the future through three escape capsules, where iconic hospitality venues are hybridised to create new, more virtuous, and ever more desirable ones: wellness cafés, sports stations, spa rooms… Innovative, sensory experiences, like an invitation to travel and disconnect, only to find yourself again. The ultimate intimate escape, on the edge of reality. “A unique and fully experiential space, combining creativity, nature and technology to provide a warm welcome and comfort for customers,” says Mélanie Leroy.

Hospitality Lab X Studio REV, a Multidimensional Experience

“We also wanted to give carte blanche to studio REV, the firm that won the Paris Shop & Design 2023 prize, to provide us with another creative version of hospitality,” explains SAFI director Mélanie Leroy. A mix of light and materials, a friendly, gourmet reception area brimming with joy and good spirits: the Hospitality Lab in the heart of Hall 6 puts on an inspiring, innovative show. A multifunctional experience created by studio REV, halfway between the physical and the virtual, with a gigantic table combining wood and glass as its central element, conducive to socialising, whether at a table or just passing through, thanks to the on-sale and take-away offerings. Once again, Maison&Objet demonstrates its keen understanding of the expectations of hospitality market customers. More than a simple visit, it’s a genuine immersion in the heart of a place marked by a strong visual, functional, symbolic, and even poetic identity. A place where the worlds of avant-garde hospitality and retail come together, with a host of exceptional products.

Outonomy, Mathieu Lehanneur’s Outdoor Inspired Installation on a New Form of Autonomy

“An ecosystem for living, both minimal and optimal”. This is how Mathieu Lehanneur imagined his Outonomy project for Maison&Objet. With this outdoor-inspired installation in line with the TECH EDEN season theme, the Designer of the Year had no other ambition than to bring nature into our contemporary society.

The design of this scenography points to the future and reveals the need for freedom. Doing better with less, dealing with our surroundings while respecting the environment, getting back to basics but not on basics… “Far from nostalgia or an attempt to retrace our steps, Outonomy attempts to answer the question: what do I really need?” says the designer.

Baccarat, the Epitome of Iconic French Heritage

As two quintessential French heritage maisons, Baccarat, renowned for its prestigious crystal craftsmanship, and Maison&Objet are marking their 260th and 30th anniversaries through an exclusive collaboration. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Maison Baccarat and be spellbound by the mesmerising allure of Baccarat’s crystal creations through an immersive experience on Maison&Objet in hall 7.
