The ¨Meet the Designer¨ series by bathroom brand VitrA continues with a talk featuring Milan-based American designer Terri Pecora in discussion with the brand’s Design Director, Erdem Akan. The digital talk, hosted on VitrA’s YouTube channel, will be live-streamed tomorrow on Thursday, 2nd July at 7pm GMT+1.
The talk will revolve around Terri’s extensive career, from furniture design and bathroom products to stand design and retail interiors, and reflect on the present and future of the design industry, whilst exploring the designer’s collaboration with VitrA. Celebrating wellness and the joy of spending time in the bathroom, the award winning Plural range was inspired by the heritage of communal bathing spaces and rituals, introducing the bathroom as a social hub where people meet and reconnect with themselves, their close friends and family.
The talk will be moderated by the brand’s Design Director, Erdem Akan, who has overseen VitrA’s design initiatives, projects and conceptualisation since his appointment in 2014. Under his design lead, VitrA has been behind the collaborations with visionary designers including Arik Levy, Claudio Bellini and Sebastian Conran, who have created bathrooms collections that reflect a unique vision and distinctive aesthetic style.
Erdem Akan, Design Director of VitrA, comments: “We are delighted to continue our ‘Meet the Designer’ series with Terri Pecora. It’s essential for us to maintain a constructive, regular dialogue with the creative community to create new methodologies and solutions that respond to the recent evolution of the bathroom rituals in such extraordinary circumstances.¨
VitrA’s ¨Meet the Designer¨ series aims to create a platform for the global exchange of ideas by bringing together internationally renowned design voices. The first two instalments featuring Arik Levy and Terri Pecora will be followed with subsequent talks with Claudio Bellini and other acclaimed designers who have collaborated with the brand in recent years.
