“Pop-Up Bathroom” For Exhibitionists Only
February 7, 2013
Pop-up bathrooms are trending, apparently. (The things you learn!) That important information comes to you from the Association of the German Sanitation Industry and the Messe Frankfurt, the co-sponsors behind “Pop up my Bathroom,” what promises to be the most exciting thing to hit bathroom design in 2013/14. Most interesting about the campaign is the “Bathroom Bubble,” the inflatable mobile pavilion that will tour from place to place espousing the virtues of the pop-up lavatory. Continue.
With the Bathroom Bubble, the campaign’s organizers hope to convey the “freedom” that comes with the smartly designed water closet. After polling groups of people about their “dream bathroom,” the committee found that many pollsters had cited a wish for a porcelain throne with a view or access to a balcony or garden. The bubble realizes their dream by creating a thin, transparent membrane that creates a portable living room-bathroom with views in all directions. Whether placed among trees or on the roof of a building, the pop-up structure makes uses “feel a little closer to nature.” The reticent need not apply.
