GROHE is proud to participate in London’s first ever Planted event taking place at London King’s Cross this weekend. Planted is set to be an informative and inspiring three-day event, seeking to reconnect people and spaces with nature, and ignite positive change in behaviours across the design industry.
Launching Thursday 23rd September during London Design Festival, Planted will bring focus to the environment, nature and sustainability around design, product and architecture based on principles of biophilic design and the notion of connecting consumers and industry professionals wanting to bring lasting positive change to the industry.
As a sustainably driven brand leading the way in the production of eco-conscious bathroom and kitchen fittings, GROHE will participate in Planted’s debut live talks series, ‘Planted Unearthed’, set to highlight the challenges facing the design industry and explore the ways in which people, communities, cities, and buildings must adapt and evolve.
Patrick Speck, Leader LIXIL Global Design EMENA which includes the GROHE brand, will discuss these issues in the ‘Age of Waste’ talk chaired by Sam Peters, addressing the increasingly critical waste crisis and the shift towards circularity.
Ebru Bircan, GROHE Leader Marketing Activation UK, LIXIL, comments, “At GROHE, we are passionate about leading the bathroom and kitchen industry in transformative change to protect our planet. We are pleased that the topic of sustainability is pushing further up the agenda. Our attitudes to the way we live, work, and relax has changed dramatically in 18 months alongside how we view sustainability and climate issues such as waste.
We look forward to engaging in a dialogue with other industry leaders at Planted to dissect our volution to a circular economy.”
