‘Still Climbing Out’: Bathroom Design After Cancer

“Still Climbing Out: Bathroom Design After Cancer,” the 2nd annual Bathroom Blogfest #kbtribechat, is inspired by a question Lisa M. Smith (Decor Girl) posed online seeking special shower ideas for a friend with advanced cancer. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, our chat will focus on the elements of bathroom design that can provide a safe, soothing and supportive environment to support people fighting this disease.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Still Climbing Out” is the theme of the 7th annual 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.

Hosted by Christine B. [C.B.] Whittemore and Nora DePalma, we invite #KBTribeChat participants to lend their expertise to brainstorm ideas for reinventing the bathroom experience in homes and buildings to bring new meaning to life for cancer survivors ‘still climbing out.’ This twitter chat will take place on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, from 2 to 3pm eastern time.

October 26, 2011 Topic: Rethinking the Bathroom

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“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. [See http://uxmag.com/articles/its-time-to-climb-out-and-rethink-the-user-experience for additional perspective].

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.
