A universe in continuous growth and transformation, dictated by the vicissitudes of the pandemic, which have changed the way we experience the home and the bathroom, paying increasing attention to daily well-being, space-saving solutions and the latest trends… trends that we find in the post- Cersaie reportage – the highlight of the moment, which returned to the physical format, and of the issue -, where the top companies in the industry presented their vision of the bathroom, with new super-performing materials, new cuttingedge technologies and artisanal know-how. The bathroom becomes a ‘stage’ on which to dance like dancers do on the Superplan Zero shower tray by Kaldewei (in the photo), which entrusted Bryan Adams with the photo shoot for its launch on the international market. But not only products, even the projects presented show maximum attention to wellness areas, such as north of Lake Garda, where an ancient monastery dating back to the 17th century has been renovated and enlarged by a monumental project by noa*, or at the DEMO Hotel in Rimini, where each environment, including the bathrooms, has its own eclectic identity. We also heard from Ferruccio Laviani, who shared his vision of the world of ceramics in his close collaboration with Panariagroup. As for projects, we flew to London for an outstanding engineering work, Sky Pool, the first suspended swimming pool in the world that joins two skyscrapers like a transparent bridge, changing the skyline and inviting passers-by to look up, and then back to Milan where, during the Design Week, the dressing rooms and bathrooms of the Teatro Arcimboldi found new ‘tailor-made clothes’ designed for the occasion by 17 architectural firms. Last but not least, the cover is dedicated to the new Tessuto radiator by Cordivari Design, with its important aesthetic and functional value.
