to be presented at the ISH trade fair in frankfurt from the 12th to 16th of march, 2013 is a pop-up bathroom concept, developed as part of a
trending forecast from the association of the german sanitation industry and the messe frankfurt. the campaign sees the fabrication of an inflatable
mobile pavilion that will tour from place to place promoting the benefits of a temporary, mobile bathroom.

 

the ‘bathroom bubble’ intends to represent freedom, an idea that was generated after surveying groups of people about what they see as their ‘dream bathroom’.
the committee found that many pollsters desired they’re porcelain throne to have a view of or access to a balcony or garden.
through implementing a thin, transparent membrane, the structure creates a portable living room-bathroom with a panoramic vista.
the pod can be placed among trees or on the roof of a building, nurturing a feeling of being ‘closer to nature’.

 

jens j. wischmann, managing director of the VDS, explains the focus of ‘pop up my bathroom’:

 

‘we believe they answer consumers’ need for more cosiness and relaxation, for environmentally aware behaviour and sensuous experiences,
as well as for a straightforward, self-determined way of life well into old age.’

  • There is something comedic about the presence of a sink.

  • This is very tired. Inflatables; the 1960’s. Transparent membranes as enclosures for homes; done in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles in the early 1960’s – the more imaginative and livable Geodesic Dome House as featured on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Home Magazine.
    This is not only absurd and lacking in fulfillment, it is vapid.

  • yes, we would all like a view while on the throne, but we do not want to BE THE VIEW! This is ridiculous!!!!!

  • One welcomes fresh ideas, even oddball ideas somewhere far out on the arc of implausibility, if only to dislodge an inert industry, but if this was the charge, the consumer insight —

    consumers’ need for more cosiness and relaxation, for environmentally aware behaviour and sensuous experiences,
    as well as for a straightforward, self-determined way of life well into old age —

    a bubble is a bizarre outcome. A bubble implies being isolated from reality, not freedom. And being exposed and on view, which most people would find the opposite from relaxing or cozy. On the other hand, this would be a great place to view a thunderstorm — and you might need a porcelain bowl if a thunderbolt burst nearby.

  • garbage like this is why we are not going to make it as a species, where is the water coming from in this “portable ” concept? sceptic,design has the potential to re invent the world, or destroy it…
