KBIS 2020 Highlights: Luxury and Technology Steal the Show
KBIS was, as usual, a vision of the great places the kitchen and bath world is heading.
Year after year, we are blown away by the ingenuity and creativity that characterizes this industry.
In 2020, it’s clear that there are high expectations for both product and interior design. Quality materials, innovative processes and more technology in the consumer market were some of the top trends we noticed at the show.
Here are some of the highlights of our visit:
American Standard with their new exhibit design that clearly articulates their 3 different brands (brands (American Standard, DXV and Grohe)
The House of Rohl using new displays to bring a luxury element to their products, showing them off like jewellery to elevate product value.
Clarke using evocative images as backdrops for their products, like this display with a misty forest setting off their creamy white bathtubs.
Faucets that do the thinking for you from Moen: the U by Moen Smart Faucet is a smart fixture that can do everything from heat up the water and measure out amounts with a simple voice command. The novel faucet won a BIMsmith Best Award.
We also liked how Moen attracted our senses with INLY aromatherapy disks. These pucks attach to shower heads and the scents last for up to 15 minutes for an aromatherapy shower experience.
