GROHE X Opening Keynote

Power of water

On the summit’s final day the “Caring for water” overall theme is given a twist as we look at how water cares for us. Jonas will delve further into the intangible benefits of water as we enquire into the kinds of architecture that can soothe our tired bodies and anxious souls. Of course water has always played a part in spaces dedicated to spiritual and physical renewal, so how might it do so in the future? Jonas will reveal our new sub-brand that encompasses products that we’ve developed to enhance users’ wellbeing and sense of self, as the home bathroom is transformed into the all-round me-space. 

Customised and personalised home spas and bathrooms, and the products that will make them work, are already a focus of our business and will continue to grow in importance in line with the increasing health and wellbeing trend. And of course the themes of how we care for ourselves, our built environment and the natural world are all connected to water.
