There are hundreds of bathrooms on each cruise ship, both in its public areas and within cabins. Designing a bathroom for a cruise cabin is a particularly difficult challenge. Not only are these spaces limited in size, but other considerations, such as weight, IMO certifications, and increasingly, sustainability, also need to be thought of. Across the rest of the cruise ship, bathrooms for public spaces are less space restricted. However, cruise lines and suppliers also need to consider the weight, sustainability, certifications, and design of products used in these spaces. To make this easier, we have compiled some of the most innovative and established cruise ship bathroom suppliers who will be exhibiting at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas (CSI) 2022.

In this product focus series, we are featuring CSI exhibitors and their products that specialise in designing a particular interior space category on board a cruise ship. So far, we have shone the spotlight on our attractions and entertainment exhibitors, as well as our outdoor exhibitors. In our latest product focus, we are highlighting CSI’s best bathroom exhibitors. Check them out below!

Lightweight materials

Weight is an important consideration for cruise ship interior design. That’s why CSI exhibitor Eumar Design invented an exclusive formula for its award-winning GelCeramic Lightweight® composite stone material. This has allowed Eumar Design to reduce product weight by up to 50%. This means that within 10-15 years of cruise ship operation it significantly impacts cost savings and a reduced environmental impact. This therefore ensures it obtains the highest ROI for cruise ship owners.

CSI exhibitor Eumar Design is a European based bathroom interior manufacturer, specialising in cruise ship and land-based hospitality. They assist in creating the most beautiful and functional bathroom environment of the highest quality and for the best value. Eumar Design supplies lightweight composite stone washbasins, bathroom furniture, LED mirrors and shower enclosures while utilising a fully integrated design approach that minimises risk and maximises value. Meet Eumar Design on booth 737 at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas 2022.

Sustainable designs

Designing for longevity is another critical consideration when it comes to cruise interiors. From ethically sourcing materials and reducing emissions from producing and manufacturing products to designing for durability and reducing waste, there are a lot of ways in which suppliers can reduce their carbon footprint.

Oras SMART, developed by Oras, is a new generation of sanitary fittings with embedded Bluetooth technology. This range of solutions takes hygiene, comfort and safety to the next level – while reducing water and energy consumption by up to 50%. Oras’ brand new Hydractiva Digital hand shower combines style and sustainability. Bluetooth technology allows users to monitor and influence their shower time consumption of water and energy. Additionally, users can set targets, adjust and reach new goals. The Oras Hydractiva Digital hand shower can be installed in less than a minute and requires no batteries. Instead, it is self-powered by water. Check out this innovation when it debuts on the product launch route during day two of CSI.

CSI exhibitor Oras specializes in the production of high-quality and innovative sanitary fittings for both private and public use. Oras Group has over a hundred years’ heritage of providing safe, convenient and sustainable access to water, for everyone. Meet Oras on booth 569 at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas 2022.

Innovative solutions

Cruise ship bathroom suppliers are ever evolving, seeking new ways to help their clients save money, time, and water. Over the years, we have seen many new innovations, such as those introduced by CSI exhibitor Delta Faucet. This forward-thinking brand has brought technological magic with simple-solution innovations like Touch2O®, MagnaTite® Docking and H2Okinetic® Technologies. Delta® H2Okinetic Technology shapes Delta Faucet’s PowerDrench® and UltraSoak™ Sprays. It sculpts water into a unique pattern that feels like more water and more pressure than a standard showerhead. Allowing for maximum personalization of your shower experience, Delta Faucet’s PowerDrench Spray creates an invigorating, powerful shower while their UltraSoak Spray creates a soothing, saturating shower.

Delta Faucet is a leading innovator in changing how you use water every day. They pair thoughtful features, like being able to turn on your kitchen faucet with a tap of your elbow, with breathtaking designs and long lasting products. The Delta Faucet brand lives by three tenets: water has the power to transform the way people feel every day, there can be magic in simple solutions, and innovations flow from human insight. Meet Delta Faucet on booth 928 at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas 2022.

Seamless product designs

LOKI is a product line designed to complement surrounding architecture

Cruise ship interior spaces are often designed with a particular theme, mood, or style in mind. Therefore, it is important for designers to have access to products with a sleek, seamless design that suits their surroundings. DAN DRYER’s LOKI is an award winning product line of hand dryers, sanitising floor stands, soap dispensers and toilet roll dispensers. DAN DRYER designed these specifically to complement the surrounding architecture.

This innovative bathroom supplier has another award winning product line, BJÖRK.
