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.
