The bathroom has been the site arguably most influenced by the rapid acceleration of technology, as Geberit’s products show so well. The incursion of technology in this space has radically transformed not only the visual appearance of private and public bathrooms, but also the breadth of functionalities they can now support. Integrated technology through cistern and plumbing systems has made significant strides in the sustainable consumption of water for ablution needs; while elsewhere, technology powering washbasins and hand-dryers gives end users an unparalleled degree of sanitary control.

Geberit was among the earliest brands in pushing the innovation of electronic wall-mounted taps, and with its new modular approach, Geberit provides an inspired solution to the common touchless tapware conundrum. Having developed an impressive system that ensures the preservation of electronic componentry from moisture within the washbasin function box, as well as offering a new streamlined and safe approach to installation, Geberit’s wall-mounted touchless tapware ranges guarantee that end-users can enjoy a safe, hygienic and durable washbasin system for any public and semi-public bathroom.

To this end, the brand has brought this design thinking to its other product typologies, with durability and hygiene also characterising Geberit’s recently developed floor-even showers and drainage. By demonstrating supreme convenience of cleaning and hydraulically optimised outlet technology, drains are configured to the side to ensure maximal space without backwater. This streamlined design also leaves no areas where dirt can collect or bacteria can cultivate.

Setaplano and CleanLines from Geberit

Available in the brand’s proprietary Setaplano shower surface – a non-porous, high-quality solid surface material that is warm and smooth to the touch – or their stylish CleanLines series, Geberit’s floor-even shower systems give more control back to designers and architects in the visual, experiential and functional aspects of their schemes. Extending this commitment, the brand has recently introduced an elegant behind-the-wall drainage option to preserve a barrier-free and consistent design from floor to ceiling.

This is precisely where Geberit continues to innovate well into its 144th year. Understanding both the design goals and duty of care that designers and architects must bring to each brief, Geberit stands strong in its support of a more empowered design community for 144 more years to come.
