After spending three intensive days with the Brizo team in product sessions, I know this: They work within an industry which on the outside might seem dull or limiting, but this team has taken every spare inch of creativity to produce the most interesting and innovative products for your kitchen and bath out there. And no, I’m not just saying this because Brizo brought me to New York to spend time with them and help them with their product research. I was among 19 other bloggers/designers and throughout every conversation afterwards, this opinion was unanimous.
They live design, they implement it on a daily basis and fear no boundaries in it either. For me, a company that allows their designers to use travel as a form of inspiration can do nothing but succeed and excel in their respective games. Brizo opens all avenues for creativity to flow and seeing what they’ve produced for their upcoming 2011-2012 lines, it’s certainly making the magic happen for them.
Since they believe all forms of high-style can be achieved in the home, on the runway and all around, they felt that fashion has always had a heavy influence on them and in what they do hence the relationship that they built with Jason Wu from even before his stardom as a successful fashion designer. We were giddy and excited to have been whisked away to his fashion show and what a highlight it was for me.
Here’s the video I took of the final turn at the fashion show
So many amazing new friends were made while we experienced the Brizo whirlwind together like Raina, Nick, Arne, Lori, Jennifer and Leslie among others. I couldn’t have asked for a better trip, heck, we were even put to the designer test with an Apprentice-like challenge which, winning the 2nd place out of 5 teams, was just the icing on the Brizo cake.
Thank you again Veronika for allowing me the chance to live this all with your nomination. Thank you to the Brizo team for inspiring me to look beyond just the medium and push the limits of design regardless and thank you to the MSL Group for helping orchestrate this design extravaganza I won’t ever forget.
