With its A&D Centre situated in the heart of Clerkenwell, Bagno Design was in the thick of the action throughout Design Week, and welcomed hundreds of guests through its doors for a special event on Tuesday 21 May. Architects, designers and specifiers from the UK and beyond turned out in style to help celebrate the manufacturer’s first involvement in Clerkenwell Design Week, with the A&D Centre in Pear Tree Street having now been established in the area for almost a year.
As the exclusive supplier of all the bathrooms in the world’s tallest hotel – the JW Marriott Marquis hotel in Dubai – the event had a spa theme, with guests invited to indulge luxury massages and to sample a tantalising Arabic Mezze Station. Over a glass of champagne visitors to the 4,200 square foot showroom also took the opportunity to browse the company’s wide portfolio of design-led bathroom solutions, which included two new ranges launched exclusively during Clerkenwell Design Week.
Turning heads was the new Urban collection, a range of sanitaryware, furniture and brassware that brings the very latest Italian styling to the modern bathroom. For the more traditionally styled bathroom, Bagno Design also launched the Bloomsbury Collection, which is inspired by late night Jazz parties, cocktails and the social rascals of London town.
In addition to Bagno Design’s own inspirational product range, guests were also able to browse the wide selection of complementary products from a selection of hand-picked strategic partners, including Apaiser, Aqata, Dyson, Geberit, Vado and Vogue.
Bagno Design MD, Daryl Barker, who flew in from Dubai in order to join in the celebrations, commented: “We’re delighted to be taking part in our first ever Clerkenwell Design Week and to do so by celebrating with our partners, suppliers and customers has been fantastic. Our Clerkenwell A&D Centre has been a great success since opening last summer, helping us fulfil our global strategy of becoming the project supplier of choice within Europe.
“As a design hub, Clerkenwell is an excellent location for Bagno Design in the UK and Design Week gives us the perfect reason to celebrate the success we have enjoyed here to date and to introduce some brand new product lines to our customers.”
