Design Rules!

Is the work triangle still relevant?

Even the novice has heard of the work triangle in connection with kitchen design.  It’s the imaginary line between the sink, range and refrigerator. These items need to be thoughtfully placed for efficient use of the space.

Is the work triangle only relevant for small kitchens?

Can we throw out the rule if an island is involved?

Blue is not a good color for the kitchen!

Do you agree with this statement?

Color “psychology” has taught us that not only is blue an appetite suppressant but  food does not look good against it. Does this translate to the kitchen?

Do you have pictures that prove this wrong?

Bathroom sink cabinets should be 34″ high.

This has long been a standard but is changing.  Tall clients often want taller counter heights in their bathrooms but is this a good idea?

We will be discussing these “rules” and more on Wednesday, May 15, 2013.  Join our Twitter discussion by adding #kbtribechat to your tweets between two and three pm eastern time. We look forward to your input!

Here is the transcript for this kbtribechat.

Poggenpohl at KBIS in Chicago!

 

 

Join guest host, Mark Johnson FAIA, on Wednesday, April 25, 2012,  for #kbtribechat LIVE from the Poggenpohl booth, #1825, at the 2012 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). We’ll be talking with Janine Flamer, Vice President, Marketing & Public Relations at Poggenpohl U.S. (@PoggenpohlUS).

Janine will be sharing the new +ARTESIO® kitchen, a concept developed jointly by celebrated architect Hadi Teherani and Poggenpohl. Going far beyond the fitted kitchens typically found in the industry, it provides an all-embracing solution in an architectural melting pot fusing furniture design, wall, floor and ceiling integrating ventilation, lighting and sound. +ARTESIO® is a comprehensive concept in which the aspects of building, architecture, home living, cooking and kitchen all coalesce, continuing the Bauhaus philosophy of “form follows function.”

We’ll also be touring the Poggenpohl booth along with several of the #kbtribechat members attending KBIS. You can expect to see lots of pictures shared by the ‘tribe.’

Don’t miss this exciting Twitter chat from KBIS, our K&B industry show! It promises to be a fun and informative hour for all. For those visiting Chicago, the +ARTESIO® kitchen will also be unveiled at the Poggenpohl Showroom (suite 138) in Chicago’s LuxeHome (@LuxeHome_Chi) at the Merchandise Mart during KBIS.

Here is the transcript for this chat.
