Dornbracht turns the bathroom into a LifeSpa

by Sieger Design

Dornbracht is turning the bathroom into a LifeSpa: Dornbracht’s LifeSpa vision has taken the idea of health- oriented bathroom design to a new level. The concept epitomises the holistic approach to bathroom planning and furnishing in the sense of a healthy and illness-preventive lifestyle – as much in the private bathroom or home spa as in an exclusive hotel and wellness environments. The focus is on integrating health-enhancing water applications in the context of a modular architecture in the bathroom that has the flexibility to adapt to individual needs.

After the launch evening last week West One Bathrooms, Dornbracht (Battersea) is now showcasing an example of a LifeSpa in the form of a private Small Size Premium Spa area, designed by Sieger Design using a holistic approach. Carefully curated matching products are presented from the Tara range in a matt black finish, and applications are arranged in a compact area that is entirely flexible.

The health megatrend is one of the most formative developments of recent times and will become even more relevant in the future. The general pursuit of health is increasingly being transformed into an extensive search for strength and energy – a search that permeates all areas of life, and has long since gone beyond the concepts of a healthy diet and exercise, as demonstrated by the increasing demand for self-optimisation apps and accessories. The bathroom also has an important role to play in this respect, and is increasingly becoming a private spa and a room for health.

“In the future, much preventive health care will take place in the home”, explains Managing Director Andreas Dornbracht. “Water applications can enhance a health-conscious lifestyle in a variety of ways – not just with regard to physical fitness, but also as far as mental performance and life energy are concerned.”

With LifeSpa, there are a variety of ways to integrate health-enhancing water applications into the bathroom or spa. Treatments such as affusions, contrast showers, relaxing baths or water massages augment the user’s personal health strategy and in the long term, make a relevant contribution to improving well-being and boosting energy.

Affusion pipe

The element of water always plays an important role in holistic health philosophies, whether Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or Kneipp therapy. This applies in particular to hydrotherapy, the central component of the Kneipp health philosophy which provides a wide range of water applications.

Awareness of the effect of water is also the starting point for product development at Dornbracht. Our water applications for bathroom and home spa are based on discoveries that are fundamental to Kneipp philosophy. We have been collaborating with Jochen Reisberger, one of the leading European experts in this field, for a number of years.

Regular, targeted applications of water can have a positive effect on body and mind, and the affusion pipe is a simple way to integrate the benefits of LifeSpa into any bathroom architecture.

What drives Dornbracht on is the vision that every bathroom has the potential to be a LifeSpa: a space giving pride of place not only to personal hygiene, but also to our health. With appropriate wellness solutions for the home, water applications can easily be integrated into everyday life to save time.

At home, the affusion pipe means it is easy to integrate water applications into your daily routine. You can coordinate this perfectly to meet your personal requirements, depending on how you feel at any given moment and your state of health. Choose between water applications that reconcile (Balancing), relax (De-Stressing) or revitalise (Energizing), and re-establish the perfect balance of your body and mind.

Aquapressure: the WaterFan

Vertical Shower combines special outlet points with different flow modes, sometimes gently surrounding the body in heavy water drops, sometimes massaging it with powerful streams. The different forms of presentation and pre-programmed signature treatments of Vertical Shower make it ideal for many health-enhancing and preventive applications – from an invigorating contrast shower to a relaxing water massage.

The WaterFan massage jets extend the range of health-enhancing applications in the bathroom. They have a new, fan-like flow mode which provides a targeted massage in the thoracic vertebrae (vertical WaterFan) or lumbar vertebrae (horizontal WaterFan) area, and helps to alleviate and prevent tension. The height of the massage jets can be adjusted, giving them the flexibility to adapt to any user’s height.

The new massage jets can therefore be used to stimulate specific pressure points and meridians. Dornbracht – inspired by the tried and tested methods of acupressure in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) – calls this application Aquapressure. “Aquapressure harmonises muscle tone and has a positive effect on the perception of pain”, explains Christoph Stumpe, experienced TCM therapist and head of the renowned Shen Men Institute,

who worked closely together with Dornbracht to develop the new massage jets. “Through Aquapressure, the flow of blood through the muscles intensifies, stimulating the flow of energy and aiding mobility. Tension and stress melt away and the body’s natural defences are activated.”

Massage & Steam: Horizontal ShowerATT & Effegibi

Horizontal Shower is a unique water massage to be enjoyed lying prone or supine, on a heated horizontal surface. Various flow modes, volumes of water and changing temperatures are combined into different signature treatments, each having a balancing, invigorating, or relaxing effect.
