GROHE is participating in London’s first-ever Planted event taking place at London King’s Cross this weekend.

Patrick Speck, Leader LIXIL Global Design EMENA and responsible for the GROHE brand is guest panellist on headline talk on ‘Age of Waste’.

The three-day event – which started on 23rd September – seeks to reconnect people and spaces with nature, and ignite positive change in behaviours across the design 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.”
