Ideal Standard’s Singular™ logo — a new approach that was developed by the company to deliver tailored solutions and meet the needs of any project. Design, experience and performance are the cornerstones of a history spanning more than a century.
In its broadest sense, hospitality means creating space for others to feel comfortable and be themselves. Providing excellent hospitality is therefore an interesting and far-reaching topic, that can be examined from several different angles as we are discovering in this edition of the Together magazine. Looking firstly through the lens of design and architecture, we caught up with Ola Gustafsson, director and architect at Gehl - an urban planning and research consultancy that focuses on creating human-centered designs and public spaces that are beneficial for everyone, from car drivers to pedestrians.
Our feature about The Tokyo Toilet Project further discusses the need for cities and public facilities to transform, to ensure they are not only more inviting but also meet the demands of contemporary living.
Hospitality is of course also one of the most important components in the hotel industry.
Against the backdrop of ever-evolving customer expectations, our feature around Spaces for living well shows how Ideal Standard can provide a wide range of innovative and aesthetically striking solutions that create inviting, comfortable and truly inspiring spaces. Our extensive portfolio from a complete range of product categories offers endless possibilities to bring such spaces to life. And to help our partners choosing the best solution for their project we recently introduced Ideal Standard Singular™ - a completely new approach to specification bringing together our deep product knowledge, project expertise and design services. Ideal Standard Singular™ represents an exciting development for Ideal Standard and there is much more to discover in the upcoming months. Until then we sincerely hope you enjoy reading this issue.
