Concept.
The design concept is based on the "naked bathroom" idea. Elements that are usually concealed, such as toilets, ceramics, reservoirs, piping, fittings, valves, and accessories are left exposed. This manner of presentation highlights the ceramic sanitary ware. The lighting emphasizes their shine, and, in the background, the chosen finishes are matte, textured, or rugged, such as wood, concrete, stone. The objects on display in the showroom also include functional toilets.
A distinct area is the one dedicated to the “product of the year”, where all the innovative Geberit products are displayed.

The office area offers flexibility and the possibility to expand the team as needed. The dining area is connected to the office one and it opens into a terrace with a panoramic view towards the Cotroceni neighborhood. The meeting rooms in the office area are destined for teamwork and receiving guests.
