At TOTO, we understand the importance of the bathroom in people’s lives. After all, it’s the only room you rely on every day! By keeping this in mind, we design products that can make a mundane bathroom visit a meaningful and inspiring experience for everyone – regardless of age or physical ability. With our timeless styling and flawless, efficient performance, your bathroom will always be “trending.”

TOTO’s KBtribechat Questions:

Question 1:  Contemporary looks don’t stay that way for long. How can you give your bathroom a modern look without it becoming dated in the future?

Question 2:  With the drought in CA, water-efficiency is a priority. What are ways you can reduce your water use without sacrificing a luxury bathroom experience?

Question 3:  How can you achieve socially sustainable designs in the bathroom and avoid the drab “institutional” look?

Question 4:  Tiny homes are trending. What are ways you can save space in the bathroom without giving up style or functionality?

At 11:28 we will be walking over to the Miele USA booth (#1347).

Range and Dishwasher – No Better Complement

Balance requires flawless symmetry…in form, function and fit.  Miele’s Generation 6000 dishwashers are a natural extension of the culinary appliances, aligning perfectly in terms of design, functionality, and user interface. Dare to cook and clean differently when pairing the Miele Range with the new Miele Generation 6000 dishwasher series and be amazed by the results.

The first stop on the tour is Miele, Booth 1301, where Miele will unveil “Design for Life” and its newest generation of built-in appliances, including ovens, steam ovens, combi-ovens and coffee systems. The new series is the most significant Miele product launch in the United States. Setting benchmarks in design, technology and innovation, Miele ensures unprecedented convenience, performance and elegance.

The second stop on the tour is American Standard – booth #1201

As American Standard Brands enters its fifteenth decade of business, it proudly launches DXV by American Standard, a flagship portfolio of luxury bath and kitchen products celebrating the company’s distinguished 140-plus-year heritage.

DXV by American Standard comprises a premium selection of meticulously crafted fixture and faucet collections curated into four broad movements from the last 140 years: Classic (1880 – 1920), Golden Era (1920 – 1950), Modern (1950 – 1990), and Contemporary (1990 – today). More than reproductions, these exquisite products blend the artisanal character of the past with the aesthetic and performance sensibilities of today.

The portfolio also includes a collection of kitchen sinks and fittings, as well as the AT Series, a state-of-the-art smart toilet recently profiled in the Los Angeles Times.

In a unique move, DXV established an online and print community for designers, architects and creative individuals to discuss their experience with the products in the real world and spark inspiration among their peers. To start the conversation, meet the inaugural DXV Design Panel  and see the six highly individual spaces they created drawing on the DXV portfolio of products

Question #1

The third stop on our tour is Mr. Steam – booth #917

Your work as design professionals makes life better for your clients. The colors they see and the textures they feel create the emotional response they have every time they walk into their home.

Perhaps no space in the home makes this connection more than the bathroom, where your expertise touches the most personal aspects of your clients’ lives.

A home steam shower from Mr. Steam, the Feel Good company, can be the difference between creating a beautiful bathroom and designing a complete in-home wellness experience. Regular steam sessions can benefit respiratory health, nourish and hydrate skin, and promote restful sleep, just to name a few of the 44 benefits of steam showers. Steam showers are the sustainable luxury, using no more than two gallons of water for a 20-minute steam.

Help educate your clients with the Steam Showers Buying Guide from Mr. Steam.

Life is better when you feel good. Mr. Steam is Feel Good, Inc.
