Just one year ago, Kitchens & Beyond and we started this exciting journey in Nairobi, Kenya, where we are bringing outstanding products and services to architects and designers.To celebrate this successful venture into the East African markets, the Capital Club in Nairobi, Kenya, was a fitting location on 8 February 2018 to hold the first Kohler Bold. Art. event in Kenya. This kick-off art event is the beginning of a series of Bold. Art. events in the region that focus on African artists and musicians. The art pieces and performances under the overall theme of ‘multiculturalism’ are inspired by the region’s rich cultural heritage and the artists’ own experiences. At the same time, they reflect the growing urbanization, the spread of technology to the farthest corners of the world, and innovations that improve and change lives.The guests comprising of business partners, design leaders, industry talents, architects, and designers enjoyed a pleasant evening with a presentation by Salil Sadanandan, our President South Asia, Middle East and Sub Sahara Africa, sharing insights and pleasantries with each other, networking and meeting new people. At this first Bold. Art. in Africa event, we had the pleasure to have the live music act ‘Blue Motion Band’ in situ as the first artists who added great tunes to the atmosphere.
Our interest in arts extends beyond the patronage of local and emerging artists in the region and worldwide. For many years, a close collaboration of design, art, and manufacturing produces products that please the eye, are functional and state-of-the-art at the same time.
In Nairobi, ModernLife Collection including latest hygiene technology was presented in a curated installation at the event. On display were also bathroom fixtures and fittings that are especially suitable for the hotel industry. A new release in the market is also the Brushed Nickel vibrant finishes.The new products are not hidden to the general public and interested customers. All the new ranges are displayed at Kitchens and Beyond in the Ukay Centre, Westlands, Nairobi.
