Hi-tech bathrooms for UK's home-tech testing hub

Hi-tech bathrooms for UK’s home-tech testing hub

The Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI), located in London’s Soho, provides a state-of-the-art testing facility where the latest homeware appliances are put through their paces. As part of a recent upgrade, high-tech Geberit sanitaryware products were chosen for the bathrooms, including ‘shower toilet’ Geberit AquaClean, sleek Geberit Sigma and Omega flush plates and concealed cisterns, which ensure a modern and stylish look.

Part of GHI’s remit was to choose leading brands in each field, to create a state-of-the-art space equipped with the latest technology. Geberit is a leading bathroom manufacturer, with its products at the forefront of washroom innovation.

The Geberit AquaClean range (Sela and 8000plus Care are featured at the GHI) present the latest in WC functionality. Combining the convenience of a warm water wash and warm-air dryer, alongside other enhancing features, AquaClean WC’s are easy to operate and virtually touch-free. The 8000plus Care range is specifically designed for less mobile users, allowing independence in the bathroom for longer and Sela disguises its clever features by looking like a normal wall-hung toilet, winning an iF Product Design Award at ISH in 2013.


Geberit Sigma and Omega flush plates and concealed cisterns are ideal for a modern bathroom, with only the flush plate visible, providing a clean, sleek finish, complete with dual flush functionality to prevent water wastage.

The uniquely multi-purpose GHI, has allowed Good Housekeeping to expand its range and depth of testing dramatically, encompassing nursery, beauty and tech products. In addition to testing, the building includes a cookery school where consumers are offered the chance to experience in person the renowned triple tested recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation.

Good Housekeeping’s Editorial Director, Lindsay Nicholson, said: “I’m delighted to partner with some of the most trusted and forward-thinking brands in the business. They have enabled us to create a state of the art multi-purpose venue, like no other in the UK, and allowed us to rethink the value we can provide our readers.”
