We are very excited to announce our partnership with Design Milk for the launch, curation and promotion of KBIS EDIT, an exclusive invitation-only space which focuses on small batch production, international luxury brands, bespoke manufacturers and artisans in and around the kitchen and bath. At the center of EDIT, the Design Milk X Modenus Talks Lounge and wine bar sponsored by Signature Kitchen Suite with hourly talks on everything from design business, technology, trends, sustainability and more. Below, you’ll find thoughts about the importance of the new space from our CEO Veronika Miller as well as an introduction to brands you’ll be able to explore at KBIS EDIT.
“Modenus has been a very proud media partner of KBIS since KBIS New Orleans in 2013 and each year the show has gone from strength-to-strength. KBIS remains at once a barometer and a locomotive for our industry as it reflects a strong economy through growing exhibitor and visitor numbers and leads the way to suggest changing trends and important shifts in how we do business. For this alone, KBIS is the place to be but there’s another very important factor about KBIS – it truly is an all industry show, an aspect that becomes more evident every year. From corporate brands, showrooms and distributors to individual designers, builders, remodelers and artisan, custom, luxury or small production manufacturers and makers, KBIS now reflects everything we need to work profitably AND creatively, empowered to push ourselves, our work and our industry forward.
The addition of KBIS EDIT to the show is, to me, a very important message to design forward brands and design professionals that did not feel that KBIS “was for them” . Now it is – and we are very proud to, once again, be working with Jaime Derringer from Design Milk in expanding our Design Milk X Modenus Talks Lounge into KBIS Edit and help support the entire space through added coverage from our Designhounds network and through Design Milk’s powerful platforms. Being part of something big is what makes us get up in morning and we’d love your help in building KBIS EDIT. Please get in touch with brands you’d like to see and additional talks/events you feel would be important at the Design Milk X Modenus Talks Lounge. We’re listening!”
