Susanne Brandherm talks about changes in interior design
In a current interview for the Digital Talks series by bathroom and kitchen brand Grohe, Susanne Brandherm talks about the changes in interior design. The conversation, conducted by Sabine Gotthardt, is part of a series on the global transformation of architecture and interior design. The Digital Talks series features both young and renowned designers with the aim of accompanying the development of design into the future. It explores how they navigate new conditions and assert their position as idea generators, innovators and setters of quality standards.
Whether it’s climate change, pandemics, resource scarcity, urbanisation or digitisation, all these changes require new solutions. In the interview, Susanne Brandherm talks about the role of interior designers today and their expertise in developing forward-thinking concepts. She also describes the current challenges faced by the discipline and the changes in work practices resulting from the pandemic. Another focus of the conversation revolves around the pressing issue of sustainability and how it is approached with clients and projects. As participants in the DGNB initiative Phase Sustainability, brandherm + krumrey sees significant potential for sustainable design in interior architecture. In line with the platform initiated by Grohe for the interview, the discussion also addresses the expectations for the bathroom of the future. The trend is moving towards multifunctional use as a personal hygiene, relaxation and spa area. “We find it exciting when products can be used in a variety of ways,” says Susanne Brandherm.
