Just a couple of years ago, we only marginally participated in the Design House concept during the Design Week Mexico. Quickly the designers and we realized that there are wonderful opportunities and synergies to showcase our products more and to create beautiful spaces using them.
In this year’s event in October 2017, we supplied the products for 90% of the bathrooms in the Design House at Luis G. Urbina y Anatole France Street in Polanco, Mexico City.
You may say, we kind of Kohler-ized the whole building.And we were mighty busy with lots of activities surrounding the Design House – we collaborated with some of the finest and best-known designers in the industry, we held a few media conferences, showed our customers and friends from the media around, and introduced them to new trends, our company in general and Kohler Clarity water filters in particular.All of this was very well received. During the three weeks that the house was open to the public, more than 10,000 people took the opportunity to visit and marvel at the great designs and the latest installations.The four designers we worked with for the bathrooms were: SpAce, Sofia Aspe, Maad, and Salinas Lasheras. Each approached their design challenge differently and we were happy to comply with the products to complete their ideas and visions.
SpAce Arquitectura designed a charmingly beautiful bathroom in a contemporary style. Our Veil toilet and bathtub and the Composed faucet complement this well-lit space.
The bathroom created by Maad had a different atmosphere all together focusing on relaxation and rest. A combination of black touches and rose gold gave this bathroom a sophistication that was enhanced with the Purist faucet and accessories, a Ceric bathtub, and the Carillon sink.
This tiny space that Sofia Aspe designed was full of color and luxury as well as texture and patterns. The Abrazo bathtub and the Loure faucet calmed this mumble-jumble firework of Mexican design and ‘joie de vivre’ and created a perfect balance.
Salinas Lasheras choose a more classical, subdued, cooler approach by designing a more traditional bathroom with a contrast of warmth in deep, dark blue color and the coolness of stone for the countertops. The elegant Artifact faucets in Vibrant Brushed Bronze accented this space admiringly.
