“WaterDream: The Art of Bathroom Design,” which runs June 26 through Sept. 24 at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA), takes viewers on a stimulating journey through the art and history of bathroom design from the 19th century to the present day. The exhibit explores how bathrooms have evolved from a simple, practical places dedicated to personal hygiene into palaces of peace, luxury and relaxation.
In addition to a timeline of historical bathroom design milestones, WaterDream also features work from influential interior and product designers like Philippe Starck. Axor by Hansgrohe, a European bathroom design company known for its water-conserving fixtures, challenged designers, such as Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Uriquiola, and Rowan and Erwan Bourollec, to create eco-friendly “bathrooms of the future,” which also are on display.
In conjunction with the WaterDream exhibit, every Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m., the museum will extend its hours for Drink in Design, a reception that features live music, screenings and demonstrations. Drink in Design will begin on Thursday, June 30.
Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and those in the military, and $5 for children aged 17 and under. For more information call 404-979-6455 or visit museumofdesign.org.
