“Rethinking the Bathroom” is inspired by the 6th annual Bathroom Blogfest. “Climbing Out” is the theme of the blogfest, which brings together bloggers from around the globe to write about the importance of bathrooms in the customer experience. Their posts come from a wide range of perspectives that include sociology, marketing, research, psychology, environmental, customer experience, and design. The 2011 theme reacts to unimaginative inward thinking and dismal global news, while celebrating breakthrough challenges such as Bill Gates’ challenge to rethink the toilet. It challenges participants to ‘climb out’ and embrace collaborative problem-thinking while focusing on bathrooms and bathroom experiences where creativity and innovation break down before reaching the stall door.

Hosted by Christine B. [C.B.] Whittemore and Professor Toilet, we invite #KBTribeChat participants to lend their expertise to brainstorm ideas for reinventing the bathroom experience in homes and buildings while considering intuitive, user-focused design solutions and collaborative problem-solving.
