It’s very seldom that we get to take a peek into the mind of a design genius, so imagine the delight of architects and designers across South Africa on finding out that they would have the chance to interact with Roberto Palomba of Palomba Serafini Associati.

It is thanks to the longstanding, successful business relationship between Italtile and Laufen that Italtile was able to host three intimate events across South Africa. The cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban each played host to an exclusive evening where guests, local architects, interior designers and media discovered the inspiration behind the superlative designer range of bathroom ware, Kartell by Laufen.

This revolutionary, cutting edge design and technology was moulded in the minds of Italian power couple Ludovica+Roberto Palomba for years before they combined forces with master manufacturers Kartell and Laufen. The result is a super sleek, strong and modern sanitary ware and accessory range, also taking into account dedication to the sustainability and eco-friendly focus of the range that will change the way you have always thought of this private bathroom space.

Guests had a chance to interact with Roberto Palomba on a personal level to unveil, perhaps not just what was behind the Kartell range, but also the general thought patterns that result in the ingenious designs for modern living.

The event was well attended by many esteemed guests of the industry, among them architectural firms Boogertman and Partners, PGA Architects, Square Design, Olala Interiors, GAPP Architects, TV3 Architects, Macgregorforsyth, Driftwood Interiors, Studio 3, WMS Venter and Black Chilli Design.
