We are thrilled to announce the launch of our visionary design competition Dream in Kohler. We are challenging designers to push the envelope of modern bathroom design with a call for fierce creativity. The brief is to design a 16m2 bathroom space that both expresses who they are and reflects our South African milieu.
One of Kohler's fundamental goals has always been to discover and invest in local talent wherever the brand has a presence in the world, actively doing its part to shape the design landscape. The Dream in Kohler platform allows them to elevate those designers who are on the verge of taking off and those needing a stage from which to showcase their exceptional skills.
For the entrants, winning could lead to recognition, wealth, esteem and bragging rights… essentially Dream in Kohler has the potential to transform their careers.
The brains behind the proposal that knocks Kohler's socks off will be rewarded with a paid contract to create their winning design at the prestigious 100% Design show at Decorex Joburg this August. The winner will also be promoted in a Global Kohler Design Trends video shoot.
The runner-up will receive the opportunity to recreate their design at the avant-garde Kohler Gallery in Johannesburg, an inspiring space that has redefined the definition of a showroom.
The cognoscenti of design and style in SA will be casting their trained eyes over the entries. The people to impress are TV-star and style shaper Maps Maponyane, interior designer Nthabi Taukobong of Ditau Interiors, decorista and SA Décor & Design founder Marcia Margolius, architect Greg Scott of Scott & Partners Architects and Greenside Design Centre's Head of Interior Design Jason Wiggin.
