Consumer Electronics Show, Shipping Container Case Study: In Case You Missed it (My January Newsletter)
By Diana Mosher
One year into COVID, most of my favorite events have successfully transitioned to a digital format until we can all safely be together in person again. The 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held January 11-14 featured pandemic-inspired “clean tech” that provide antimicrobial protection at home (see them here) as well as touchless kitchen and bath fixtures to help prevent the spread of germs.

Inspired by Japanese forest bathing (or “shinrin-yoku”), Kohler’s Stillness Bath combines water, light, fog and aroma therapy to create a spa-like environment. This “experiential bath” promises to remove—or at least postpone—pandemic-induced stress. If you need help with a bathroom remodel, contact me here to schedule a 30-minute free consultation. —Diana Mosher
