Bold colours in the shower and bathroom: new drain covers in metallic design
The trend is towards colour accents in showers and bathrooms. Stylish details have a transformational effect on bathrooms. Inspired by the latest brassware trends, wedi takes its drain covers to the next level by introducing three new colours: metallic black, metallic rose gold, and metallic gold. At BAU 2023, which starts today in Munich, the wet room specialist will present them together with other new products.
New shower wall module: full of technology, free of water
Always at the forefront of innovation, wedi brings a new, ready-to-install shower wall solution to the market that - with its factory-integrated, hot and cold-water pipes, Hansgrohe iBox and reinforcements for the shower outlets - cuts back on labour and interactions between different trades on the construction site. It is not only 100% waterproof, but also saves a great amount of time and hence allows for a faster and safer project completion.
Simple, fast and safe - from the drain of the shower to the surface of the wall - wedi designs bathrooms of a monastery
The Trappist Monastery, an ancient building in Chimay, Belgium, has been a place of prayer and work for the monks of Scourmount since 1862. For visitors who want to share the peace of the monks, a wing of the venerable building, known as the "hostel", is always open. Each of the 60 rooms has a private bathroom, of which 20 have recently been refurbished. The monks decided with a complete, all-round renovation in order to prevent water damage from the old, worn-out drains and pipes. In addition to the new technology, an another, very important aspect needed to be taken into account: the ambience of this very special building had to be preserved. The wooden substructure in the bathrooms had to be protected from moisture with insulation ensured so that the accommodation, like the rest of the monastery, became a place of peace and quiet.
wedi wins awards for shower elements and design surfaces
The system provider wedi is an innovation driver in the construction industry for bathrooms and wet rooms and has repeatedly been receiving awards for its products. For the proven wedi Fundo shower system, wedi has been awarded the 'brand of the century' and is on the list of winners alongside big and well-known brands such as Ritter Sport, Miele and Persil. Almost at the same time, the ready-to-install surfaces of the wedi Top Line also won two recognised design awards: "All three awards are great feedback for our company!", said Stephan Wedi and Fabian Rechlin, managing director of wedi GmbH.
The age of a bathroom can often be seen at first glance: a bathtub with dated tiling that is visibly aged. It can however be brought back to life quickly and easily without the need for a complex renovation. With wedi solutions, old bathrooms shine in a new light within no time at all, making them not only visually more appealing, but also more comfortable; for example, by turning an old bathtub into a functional, floor-level shower with elegant design surfaces that enhance the bathroom.
