Patrick Speck, LIXIL Vice President of Design and Consumer Experience, EMENA region, discusses the potential of GROHE’s touchless bathroom and kitchen products to enhance hygiene, at the recent Dezeen Virtual Design Festival.

With the increased demand for hygiene we’re having right now, we know that to minimise the risk of spreading germs and also cross-contamination, we need to reduce contact with any surface as much as we can.

GROHE has the proud achievement of being the first large sanitary-ware manufacturer to achieve carbon-neutral production. Its sustainability focus extends into the kitchen space with GROHE Blue, a kitchen faucet that gives you refreshing filtered chilled and sparkling water at home or in the office, to help reduce reliance on bottled water with disposable plastic.

I believe the combination of smart technology and water-efficient products can help us to tailor kitchen and bathroom experiences that are going to fulfil people’s needs and help us to save our planet’s resources in the future.
