Showroom: Music to Bathe By

Tucked into Duravit's existing range of mirrored LED cabinets, the company's new Sound System brings a premium audio experience into the bathroom. Image courtesy Duravit.For the last decade or so, our music has easily traveled with us. In the car, at the office, around the house. There is something of a final frontier, though: the bathroom. Given its unique acoustics (and potential for unintentional dunkings), a typical system doesn’t make sense. Enter Duravit. The company has made a name for itself creating innovative products for the modern bath—think the SensoWash Starck shower toilets or the System Tubs that combined jets, LED illumination and a sound module that transforms the tub into an above and below water speaker. With the Duravit Sound System, the company is bringing high quality sound into the bathroom.

The Hackable Building: From Corporate to Cool for Tech Tenants

By Jack Skelley

While the commercial real estate market remains in the doldrums, with high vacancies and low rents, one submarket is on fire: Tech. Companies such as Google and YouTube are expanding into Southern California, for example, and gobbling up all the “cool” buildings. You know, old bow-truss warehouses turned into creative space that feels authentic, textured, scaled to the individual, and not “corporate” like most traditional office buildings.
