Title: Design Speaks - Through “Feelings”

Name: Mai Ha Vo

School: Danang Architecture University

What is the inspiration for your design?
The bathroom design speaks - through feelings - as a space crafted for you, those seeking familiarity and warmth when away from home. Everything is meticulously tailored to your senses, akin to the love each family member shares under one roof. Here, you fully perceive the familiar emotions through your own senses.

How does the design fulfill the need of the target users?
Travelers often seek a comfortable place to stay, allowing them to rest after a tiring day of sightseeing or business travelers looking for a home-like environment to alleviate stress and fatigue from work. Couples often look for a comfortable and romantic space to enjoy their time together, or individuals seeking peace and refuge from noisy and busy environments, longing to relax amidst green spaces.

How does the design fulfill the design challenge?
Taking this year's theme "Home Away From Home" as my guiding light, I bring forth a bathroom design concept that focuses intensely on the "sensory experience" of the user. By creating a bathroom space that evokes comfort and familiarity, guests can enjoy an experience akin to being in their own homes while staying at the hotel.

How does the choice of products contribute to the purpose of the design?
The selected products are chosen based on criteria that not only provide a sense of comfort and safety for users but also seamlessly integrate modern interior elements into the classical space – contributing significantly to delicately touching the users' perceptions.
