Safety Design: a 100% safe bathroom

Every place, whether public or private, has a bathroom: restaurants, nursing homes, hotels, homes, schools... for every context it is necessary to think of specific furnishing features for a space which is apparently very simple but in reality very delicate.

But while design choices are influenced by the destination (a bathroom in a nursing home cannot be designed in the same way as one in a restaurant), there are criteria to be met beforehand: accessibility, safety and inclusiveness. A bathroom should be barrier-free, it should be usable by everyone in the most comfortable way possible, and it should be safe, guaranteeing the right solutions to avoid falling, slipping and other types of risks. Ponte Giulio's Safety Design range was born from these requirements: to make the bathroom a place for everyone, to increase its comfort by making it a truly safe place. Even for the elderly or for those who suffer from motor difficulties, individuals who often, due to poor design of spaces, feel a sense of unease when using these environments. Antibacterial aids, taller sanitary fittings, ergonomic washbasins, solid supports and seats with high resistance... Safety Design contains all those products that have always been at the heart of Ponte Giulio, which has always been committed to finding new solutions to improve the liveability of these spaces, declining the concepts of safety and inclusiveness in all their forms.



Tailor-Made Bathroom solutions: healtcare and exclusive design

Designing a bathroom environment is a delicate task, which requires specific skills depending on the context: a hospital facility will not have the same features as a tourist resort, just as a private home cannot have the same requirements as a bar or restaurant.

It is precisely because of these differences that it is necessary, in certain areas, to follow the entire design process more closely in order to provide complete, all-round assistance in the creation of the bathroom environment. This is where
Ponte Giulio's project divisions come from, dedicated to the world of healthcare and hospitality. Two particular worlds, characterised by parallel demands and needs, which require assessments and tailor-made solutions. The experience gained during almost 50 years of history has allowed Ponte Giulio to study a wide offer for both sectors, developing products and commercial partnerships that allow the client or the designer to be assisted in the most comprehensive way possible. Focused on the medical and healthcare sector, the Healthcare division concentrates on the design of spaces for healthcare workers and patients with various degrees of motor problems, proposing solutions aimed at making the bathroom inclusive but above all safe, for the patient and for those who care for them. At the same time, the hotel contract division develops made-to-measure solutions for the design or renovation of bathroom environments dedicated to hospitality installations, developing an offer designed to be both functional and aesthetically satisfying, thanks to the use of refined materials (acrylic stone) and collaboration with first-class partners.

Kids Design: the bathroom as a place of fun

Like so many other spaces, schools are the centre of life in a community, the greenest of them all: that of the little ones. A school environment is the centre of most of the children's daily activities and Ponte Giulio must therefore meet all the requirements of accessibility and inclusiveness.

Designing a context of this kind therefore requires tailor-made solutions, furnishing elements that allow the spaces to be used by individuals, the children, who have different dimensions (height, weight, etc.) compared to the adult world. All this applies to the bathroom environment as well.
Kids Design brings together everything that can be considered indispensable for the configuration and design of a child-friendly environment. Accessories, WCs, washbasins, mirrors... all designed for the use of a community that must experience the bathroom with the sense of light-heartedness typical of childhood. All products are made by combining the culture of safety and inclusiveness typical of Ponte Giulio with the sense of fun that characterises these wonderful years. The adoption of references to the animal and plant worlds and the use of bright colours characterise products that aim to stimulate the imagination and playful expression typical of children in a balanced way.
All the materials chosen are crafted in such a way as to make the bathroom a pleasant and safe place, always with an eye to functionality: these are always public spaces, subject to massive use and discreet transit. The products must therefore also meet criteria of durability, resistance and practicality.

Life Caring Design: safety and style on the same line

Intimacy, relaxation, well-being. This is what a bathroom is all about, a place where you can go to after a hard day of work or, on the other hand, where you can recharge your batteries and get on with your routine, a place where you can devote time to yourself, a place where you feel protected and at ease.

Life Caring Design draws its inspiration from these themes, from the need to feel this space as our own, from the possibility of living it in harmony and complete peace, with pleasure and not with a sense of oppression.
With this range
Ponte Giulio wishes to claim the right to desire a comfortable, aesthetic bathroom, beautiful to see and to live in. A dream that age and disability can often shatter, favouring a search for the mere functionality of accessories. Hug collection, Solo Shower, Prestigio+ bars are the proof of a bathroom that can be safe and elegant at the same time, that doesn't need to sacrifice its own style in favour of functionality.
An effort, that of Ponte Giulio, aimed at demonstrating that, yes, accessibility and style can coexist. All the products of the collections are designed to meet the strictest safety standards, tested and certified for resistance to high weight loads and designed to protect against any kind of danger linked to a bathroom environment. All with a touch of design to soften the shapes and provide a pleasant environment from all points of view.
