Introducing the Kohler Design Forum in Singapore



Following the KOHLER Design Forum series’ success in China, Kohler Co. is partnering with leading

international hotel design magazine Sleeper to bring the Forum to Singapore.

The event is hosted by Sleeper Magazine Editor-at-Large Guy Dittrich, and based on the theme of

‘Delivering Sustainability as Standard’.

From the architecture and landscaping of hotels to their interiors, attendees will gain expert insight

and advice on how to maximise design impact with the minimum of intervention.

World-renowned designers Bill Bensley and Duangrit Bunnag will present award-winning projects

from across the Asia Pacific region which show how world-class design can be delivered in a

sustainable, environmentally aware way.

Kohler’s Director of New Product Development, Mark Bikerstaffe will give additional input on key

market trends to be considered whilst delivering sustainability as standard.

Following these presentations, Guy Heywood, COO of Commune Hotels (whose Alila brand is one

of the region’s leading sustainable hotel companies) will join Bill, Duangrit and Mark for a panel

discussion to further explore this important topic.
