Saving water in the swimming pool

Today, it cannot be emphasised enough: a well-constructed pool can retain water for several years, the enclosure minimises evaporation, and rainwater can also be used in pool operation.

The German Pool and Wellness Association (BSW) has created an animated video for you. Watch the video (in German) on 'Saving Water in the Pool' here:

Hofer Group and Dornbracht together again for the MY SECRET project

Hofer Group and Dornbracht renew their collaboration at FuoriSalone 2022 in Milan during Design Week from June 7 to 12 with a floating SPA project inspired by Japanese tranquility and contemplation.

Architect Michele Perlini's project for MY SECRET continues a series of explorations on living, such as NO.MADE, EDEN, and MY SENSES, award-winning installations at the ICONIC Awards in 2018, 2019, and 2020, respectively. NO.MADE was also a finalist at the New York Architizer in 2019.

Presented in Largo La Foppa, in the heart of Brera, MY SECRET develops an intriguing design concept with great potential for the Italian hotel industry. The freestanding plug-and-play module of 4.5 x 9 m, with an internal space of 2.5 x 6 m enclosed by shoji sliding walls, proposes a new way of thinking about well-being. The module can be placed anywhere: in a meadow, in a forest, or floating on a body of water. Customizable and not subject to specific design constraints, it is perfect for both facilities without a wellness area and those with existing spas. Therefore, MY SECRET is an ideal add-on for creating exclusive private SPAs.

Manfred Mölgg visits Hofer Group

Hosting Manfred Mölgg at our headquarters in Val Gardena was an immense pleasure. After visiting the 500 m² showroom, we exchanged many interesting ideas on the future of sports and wellness.

After skiing on the world's most challenging slopes, there's a desire for rejuvenation. For Manfred Mölgg, going to the sauna is the best way to restore physical and mental balance. A sauna session after sports makes you feel reborn.

We wish Manfred all the best and great success in the upcoming ski season!
