Bathroom Trends

People's homes no longer just provide a roof over their head but have become a key expression of their quality of life and a reflection of their personality. This changed role has replaced the once rigid living and floor-plan concepts and set new focal points. Bathrooms too are presenting themselves from a new, self-assured perspective today: the purely functionally-oriented rooms of the past have been turned into living space. The Bathroom Trends section gives you an opportunity to see the latest developments from the industry leaders in a unique setting and derive inspiration for your next building project.

Kitchen Trends

In contemporary architecture, the kitchen has long since shed its image as a closed-off galley and has achieved its independence as a key element of the living environment. And this development is now being taken further in countless practical details associated with kitchen functions, fittings and design. In the Kitchen Trends section, our exhibitors provide you with an overview of their latest solutions and trends. To satisfy a whole range of requirements – whatever your taste.

Interior fittings have traditionally been one of the highlights at Swissbau. In cooperation with the team at Heller Enterprises, the Zurich cultural office of eminent exhibition creator, Martin Heller, Swissbau 2016 is launching a further exhibition concept of a special kind. All those who like to be surprised, pampered and inspired will find precisely what they are looking for in the «Raumwelten». Alongside classical stands, the visitor attractions include experimentation spaces («teasers») and food and relaxation zones located around the inner courtyard. Embark on a sensuous journey of discovery through this fascinating world of materials, colours, shapes and technologies.

Skilled Trades Meeting Point

With the 2016 edition of Swissbau, the building site + equipment section will be moving closer to Exhibition Square, the true epicentre of the trade fair. Alongside customary features, the «BauBeiz» tavern will provide a conducive atmosphere for visitors and exhibitors to engage in informal discussions of current industry issues. Or you can simply sit back and enjoy the live musical acts during the tavern's Happy Hour. The Skilled Trades Meeting Point will additionally be featuring the Baublatt Cup and the preliminary round of WorldSkills, the bricklayers' championship.
