Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the cultural life alive! As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.

AnA Munich 04 – On September 12, 2019, Architects, not Architecture took place in Munich for the fourth time. Three very special Architects shared their fascinating life stories. Christoph Mäckler, Peter Haimerl and Christiane Thalgott.
This talk is presented with the support of Bette.
In his talk, Christoph Mäckler speaks about important people and places that have been influencing the way he creates architecture. With a broad range of colours and dimensions, Bette creates a carefully designed environment which makes it possible for people to experience themselves in entirely new ways.
Eye-catching contrast or effect colours present individual bathroom elements as coloured eye-catchers which shimmer in an exciting way depending on the light incidence. They focus on current bathroom interiors, materials, colours, shapes and finishes. However, colour in the bathroom does not automatically mean brightly coloured. Timeless, discreet shades and pastel colours are in fashion. More than 40 percent of Bette customers now choose coloured floor-level shower surfaces made from glazed titanium steel.
