Grohe, a popular German brand for bathroom and kitchen needs unveils its second showroom on the fifth level of the Wilcon IT Hub in Makati City. As you enter the space, you'd be able to get a glimpse of Grohe’s glorious history of more than 80 years. Don’t expect, however, to find rows of water closets lined up on the wall that are usually seen in other showrooms.

The Grohe Spa Showroom is divided into five Aquazones–which follow the concept of the thousand-year-old Japanese bathing culture. Each zone represents an elaborative bathing experience which allows the customer to indulge in each ritual.

The first zone is the Contemplation zone, complete with sleek toilet that lets you experience comfort and hygiene of Grohe toilets. Next is the Preparation zone with the basin area as the center of your daily cleansing routine, where you wash your face, brush your teeth, put makeup on or shave. The third is the Rejuvenation zone where the showering experience is elevated to the next level–you can combine one or two head showers, a hand shower, a bank of body showers.

Fourth is the Relaxation zone which features a free standing bathtub from Jaxson. Finally, the Recreation zone which features a plush seat where you can sit back and read a book or wind down with a hot cup of tea. Also in this zone is the Grohe Blue, a set of basin mixers that comes complete with a filter so you can enjoy chilled sparkling water straight from the tap.

Grandera collections is one of the three design inspirations found in the showroom. This blends square and circular elements into one harmonious shape. Its smooth geometric lines and classic simplicity are created to combine effortlessly with a wide range of bathroom furnishings.

One of the remarkable spaces in the showroom is the lounge designed by Manny Samson and Associates. The geometric details serve as a backdrop for consultations as well as the occasional talks hosted here. “This is not just for customers but also for designers and architects. We conduct talks and forums here,” says Liza Cancino, marketing director of LIXIL Water Technology.

Another collection is the Allure Brilliant collection which is showcased in this vignette, the modern style of which was inspired by the Shanghai World Financial Center in China.

In the middle of the showroom is this interactive spot which allows the customers to try showerheads and basin mixers in different styles, these are ingeniously operated with the touch of a button.

RL Picks: Rainshower F-Series Multi-Spray; Eurodisc Joy Tap; Grandera Basin Mixer; Rainshower Icon 150, all prices available upon request.
