Due to lack lack of interest from exhibitors the two London based bathroom exhibitions KBB London and KBB Review EXPO with dates for May have both been cancelled, I was surprised that there were going to be two shows so close together especially as the last show at the Excel was not terribly exciting two years ago.
KBB at the NEC has always been the premier bathroom and kitchen show which is due in March 2010 and to be honest I for one am pleased that there will not be one in London after the last show.
As for the KBB Industry awards 2009 they will still be held in London this May 11th.
Duravit VeroÂ in a new colour finish Teak dÃ©cor is complemented by the classic clean lines of the Duravit Vero washbasin, This was shown at 100% Design exhibition in London last week The classic rectangular Vero washbasin has made a name for itself amongst lovers of design and architecture, In addition to the 60cm wide washbasin,Â They are now introducing three new models measuring 50, 80 and an imposing 100cm wash basin. There were many more additions launched at 100% design, I will be digesting all the best information over the coming weeks and giving you the best of the best.
If you want to find reasons to go for a long weekend in Italy Bologna to be precise, look no further than Cersaie 2008 the Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, In fashion we have had New York – London – Milan, well following Milan why not Bologna its the Gastronomic capital of Italy, The city of red tiled roofs, walk ways, markets and beautiful people, so lets takeÂ a sneak preview to whet your lips.
Verso By Catalano have long since been involved in the bathroom supply market in the UK first through Bathstore but have since moved away to independent retail outlets and there quality and design has always been outstanding, bathstore in a cutting costs excercise no longer deal with the sanitary giants and I feel have now lost the edge in bringing in lesser quality products, this new range is another step forward for Catolano and is a huge range that is bound to be a show stopper.
Cut by Tre Emme Rubinetterie is certainly different, This year we have had square spout round bodyÂ round spout square body, Well the Cut monoblocÂ basin mixerÂ is just different from all the others and is designed with the young in mind, Designer Giancarlo Vegni has really extended himself this time and I am sure this range if it gets to the UK shores will be a big hit.
Cangas washbasin by Ceramica Tecla this double basin will fit into a smaller bathroomÂ it is only 120cm wide and has aÂ projection of 45.5cm compact and neat,Â With the Wenge cabinet is just right for that his and hers modern bathroom,Â This basin is an addition to the existing range and is not yet available in the UK, I would not be surprised to see this in a bathroom shop soon.
Cesaie 2008 Bologna…..well worth a visit. “Ciao for now”
