In particular interest to Hong Kong-homeowners, the panel also talked about space saving and intelligent bathroom design. Bickerstaffe is confident that Kohler is offering the most modern solutions in terms of space manipulation. "We recognise in a small space you can't move very fast, and it's all about putting layers and layers of storage and functionality into it."

In terms of modern design, homeowners are often looking for high tech features in their bathrooms. "The idea now of intelligence is to make technology invisible, unnoticeable," explains Ed. The basic thing is to make all the intelligent functions invisible once people step in the room. Ed says, "Imagine when you step in the room, the lighting is right, the temperature is right, the water temperature is just right at your fingertips. You should not recognize where technology is, but it is actually there. Invisibility and intuitiveness are the big words."
