Today we bring you what might be the most awaited discussion on the development of sensory experiences and their influence on bathroom design for the 21st century and its interior design ideas. In discussion – a focus on the way designers need to engage senses for the optimum design experience for emerging bathrooms.
Ready to see Kelly Hoppen bathroom interior design ideas?
At Maison & Objet Asia 2015, this discussion will explore the use of materials, and the senses in guiding designers for choices in design and formation. Meet Kelly Hoppen, Owner and Founder of Kelly Hoppen Interiors & Belinda Try, Founder and Executive Director of APAISER.
Celebrating 40 years at the forefront of the industry, Kelly Hoppen’s ever-evolving design philosophy is underpinned by a subtle, coordinated fusion of East meets West. Her clean lines and neutral tones are always blended with charming warmth and sumptuous opulence, keeping true to her core values of high quality, simplicity and timeless elegance.
Passionate about making her design ethos accessible to the masses, Hoppen has now written eight books. In addition, she is honoured to be the recipient of copious design awards and the proudest point in her career to date came in 2009, when she was made an MBE for her services to interior design. Recognised for the passion of empowering women in business, she was also awarded the NatWest Everywoman Ambassador award in December 2013.
A dedicated supporter of good causes and the championing and nurturing of younger and older British entrepreneurs, Kelly is an ambassador for the Princes Trust and the Princes Initiative for Mature Enterprise. Kelly is also a proud ambassador for the Government’s GREAT campaign and has worked with UK Trade & Investment mentoring small and medium sized businesses.
Belinda Try is an Australian entrepreneur, designer and founder of the apaiser group of companies. Born in Adelaide, Australia – Belinda was formally trained as a classical ballerina and danced with several of the world’s leading ballet companies before raising a family and moving into the business world. She established apaiser in 2000 after the conclusion of her dancing career and is both founder and Executive Director of the global apaiser group.
Seizing upon her belief that bathrooms were a neglected area of hospitality and residential design, Belinda’s natural entrepreneurial spirit drove her to create an alternative to the sterile and functional bathroom products that dominated the market.
Belinda’s original vision was for the creation of a bathware range focussing on the creation of luxurious ambience in the bathroom and thus she designed the apaiser material with optimum performance in mind. Now her vision is to open luxury flagship showrooms that will extend the footprint for apaiser – in London and New York in 2015 – to bring her brand to the Northern Hemisphere.
