Interior designers, decorators, consumers, and journalists are as diverse and unique as a group can be. The first interiors trends and insights event ‘Designed to be designed’ in London united this audience in a special location that is not widely known yet.
The Maslow’s Mortimer House, conveniently located between Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road in central London, was a reason by itself to check out this new event series organized by our UK team. The Art Deco building in Fitzrovia with six floors is a members-only club with a prominent mid-century design that is conducive for work and life balance.
The penthouse-style loft with large windows is light-flooded even on the gloomiest and greyest London day and offers views of the London skyline in the distance. The balcony is a great place to catch a few cool breaths before heading back in for presentations, workshops, and networking.
The guests at the ‘Designed to be designed’ event in the end of March, however, could hardly be pulled away from the big screen and Mark Bickerstaffe’s presentation on current trends and the influence of modernism in product design.
Our director of Design Global Faucets took the journalists and interior design bloggers on a journey into the world of Kohler and the design process that leads from minimalism to maximalism.
Later in 2019, the Components Faucet collection will be introduced in Europe and the United Kingdom. The design plays to the global trend of personalization where homeowners, architects, and developers can choose exactly the style, form, and color that fits their bathroom or kitchen design. The flexibility that the various spouts, handles, and PVD finishes give the designers adds freedom and fun to create the space that is completely individual.
At the event, a great product display of Artifacts® let guests marvel over the design process and finished products. The designs of these faucets add interesting accents to room designs and help customize the space in surprising and refreshing ways.
Guests appreciated the information and details shared about the design process and the latest product designs as well as the great location where they mingled with each other and the team.
