On 13 August 2017 popular places in Bangkok, Singapore and Taipei were all of a sudden inundated with beautiful people clad in bathrobes. Their unusual dressing style stirred up a curious crowd who learned more about our newest Kohler Experience Centers (KECs).Yes, you heard right, we are going to bring the KECs to Asia. After New York City, London and New Delhi, the next KECs wanted to get a head start with a big bang and will open its doors all in the last week of August.
Taipei, Taiwan, China – Monday 28 August 2017
Bangkok, Thailand – Tuesday 29 August 2017
Singapore – Thursday 31 August 2017
Just ahead of the Design Forum in Taipei on Monday 28 August, the official opening event of the KEC Taipei will kick off in Taipei with around 350 invited guests and media. The KEC was designed by Shen Chih Chung Union Design Co., Ltd. and Ron Chih-chung Shen as the design director. The firm focused on global frontiers in interior design and created a veritable gateway to a life of elegance.
On Tuesday 29 August 2017, the KEC in the heart of Bangkok in its popular Thonglor neighborhood will welcome invited guests and media. P49, the designers, will explain their design concept that is a combination of art and design to the audience. A live music performance by a famous Thai actress and musician will underline the design concept.
The KEC Singapore is a totally different setting. The team in Singapore will welcome invited guests and media on Thursday 31 August 2017 to the conservation shop house on Peck Seah Street in Tanjong Pagar. LTW, an international studio specializing in luxury hospitality interiors, designed the interior of the heritage building that is a stone’s throw from the Red Dot museum and close to public transportation. LTW’s inspiration came from fashion, high-tech and family oriented spaces. The design team combined these with a classic atmosphere that was also influenced by the trend to use more black in public spaces.
