Geberit, a longstanding industry pioneer, has redefined the entire water path from cistern to water closet (WC) and drainage pipe over decades. The showroom’s innovative concept revolves around presenting Geberit’s dual product arms – the technology behind the wall and the products in front of the wall – creating a harmonious bathroom experience that seamlessly combines efficient water management with visually appealing bathroom décor.
Visitors can witness live demonstrations of Geberit’s cutting-edge technologies, including:
- The full range of behind-the-wall and in-front-of-the-wall cisterns

These products seamlessly blend elegant design with functionality, offering user-friendly installation and maintenance. Geberit’s offerings include space-saving solutions and comfort-enhancing technologies that elevate the user experience.
The showroom is thoughtfully divided into four zones:
1) An impressive entrance wall showcases Geberit’s Swiss Excellence.

3) The Technology Zone offers a glimpse of Geberit’s advanced technology with live demonstrations of its superior flushing systems.

Singapore’s reputation as an innovation hub made it the ideal location for Geberit’s flagship showroom. In a strategic partnership, Econflo Systems, a family business turned corporate entity specialised in supplying large private residential and government projects in Singapore, joins forces with Geberit as its local partner. The partnership leverages Econflo’s extensive expertise in the retail segment and Geberit’s strong reputation to enhance awareness and desirability for Geberit’s products.
Interior designer Henry Yew from Index Design led the showroom’s design, seamlessly incorporating Geberit’s brand identity and values into a minimalist interior that perfectly embodies the concept of “Design Meets Function.”
