In this new era of heightened cleanliness, many of us are spending a lot more time in the bathroom. Manufacturers are taking note, and—with new products and innovations in the fields of water and energy—making their best effort to ensure this is one room you might not want to leave. HVAC and water systems tradeshow ISH presented its first digital edition March 22-26. From unexpected new finishes that range from soothing matte to statement-worthy color to shower light shows and heightened design attention paid to the long-neglected radiator, here are 13 new bathroom products that captured our eye.
1. Afilo for Gessi
One way to kickstart wellbeing? A soothing light show in the shower. The Afilo shower system from Gessi sets the stage for your morning with dim white or colored light, while square, round, and rectangular geometry options permits the most suitable fit for your bathroom experience.
2. Max by Teresa Meister for Burgbad
The honey-hued warmth of genuine wood in the bathroom is achievable, with the Max collection of bathroom furniture by Teresa Meister for Burgbad. Paired with ceramic washbasins and featuring a mix of oak, veneer, and wickerwork inserts, cabinets and LED-illuminated mirrors are offered in a range sizes, while add-on accessories, such as a basket and a stool with built-in storage, complete the fit-out.
3. Lin20 from Burgbad
Also from Burgbad, color-blocking or the simplicity of monochrome is permitted in the wall-mounted and floor-standing solutions of the Lin20 bathroom collection. A variety of sizes and surfaces are available in the handle-free design.
4. White Tulip by Philippe Starck for Duravit
A blooming spring flower and the ambience of a country house gave rise to Philippe Starck’s first complete bathroom range. White Tulip for Duravit consists of bathtub, washbasins and furniture, toilets, and bidets. “My collaboration with Duravit always naturally leaned towards minimal and timeless designs,” says Starck. “Yet I realized that this perfection was perhaps missing a parameter, a feeling of positive nostalgia.”
5. D-Neo by Bertrand Lejoly for Duravit
Also from Duravit, An optional whirl function adds a luxurious spa experience to built-in tubs in the all-encompassing D-Neo bathroom collection by Bertrand Lejoly for Duravit. The same sleek esthetic carries over to low-flush rimless toilet, washbasins, mixers, and furniture—including a mirrored-cabinet—in 13 finishes.
6. Dark Platinum Matte by Sieger Design and Mike Meiré for Dornbracht
Shiny, once standard for bathroom fittings, is now a choice. Dark Platinum Matte is a new finish by Sieger Design and Mike Meiré for Dornbracht. It’s shown here on the manufacturer’s CL.1 tap.
7. Subway 3.0 from Villeroy & Boch
A patented controlled water vortex slashes water consumption with every flush of the Subway 3.0 rimless toilet from Villeroy & Boch. Washbasins, bidets, and furniture—with four wood options among available fronts—are also included in the collection.
8. Miena Washbasin from Kaldewei
Unexpected hues—think ‘sweet love,’ a dusty rose—among 17 available colors make for a statement washbasin with the hardy and easy-to-clean steel-enamel Miena by Anke Salomon for Kaldewei.
9. Royal Midas from Keuco
The more light shows the merrier. Light and water combine yet again in the Royal Midas shower experience from Keuco. Programmable to suit time of day and circadian rhythm, the adjustable shower light can be set or dimmed between 6500 kelvin (day light) and 2700 kelvin (warm white).
10. BetteSelect Duo tub from Bette
Double-up in a sculptural form crafted for two with the BetteSelect Duo tub from Bette.

This innovative material is also impact-, scratch-, and chemical-proof.
11. Zehnder Design Line from Zehnder
Chrome, white, or stainless steel: here sums up the (yawn) standard bathroom radiator. With a new range of colors in the Zehnder Design Line, Zehnder opens up a rainbow of opportunities for bathroom radiators—even down to selected valve sets, fittings, and thermostats for radiators already installed.
12. Leveo from Kermi
One way to mar a perfect interior: an ugly radiator. Kermi comes to the rescue with Leveo, a low-energy flat heat pump radiator with a fully-automatic integrated fan that slips into both new and existing buildings.
