The Design For Life Tour

A Special Edition KBtribechat
Live from the show floor at Dwell on Design
Friday, June 20th
11am to noon

We are excited to announce that Miele, DXV and Mr. Steam are sponsoring our KBtribechat progressive event at Dwell in Los Angeles. This three stop tour will embrace things that make for better living. Mark your calendars and plan to start the show meeting up with your KBtribe friends!




The first stop on the tour is Miele, Booth 1301, where Miele will unveil “Design for Life” and its newest generation of built-in appliances, including ovens, steam ovens, combi-ovens and coffee systems. The new series is the most significant Miele product launch in the United States. Setting benchmarks in design, technology and innovation, Miele ensures unprecedented convenience, performance and elegance. Experience the series with live culinary demonstrations in the Miele space and see how each appliance flawlessly complements another in form, function and materials – elevating the culinary experience.


Question #1

Why is it important for manufacturers to develop appliances that are “Designed for Life” as opposed to just functionality?

Question #2

How do you see Truffle Brown finding its way into the design scene?



The second stop on the tour is American Standard – booth #1201

As American Standard Brands enters its fifteenth decade of business, it proudly launches DXV by American Standard, a flagship portfolio of luxury bath and kitchen products celebrating the company’s distinguished 140-plus-year heritage.

DXV by American Standard comprises a premium selection of meticulously crafted fixture and faucet collections curated into four broad movements from the last 140 years: Classic (1880 – 1920), Golden Era (1920 – 1950), Modern (1950 – 1990), and Contemporary (1990 – today). More than reproductions, these exquisite products blend the artisanal character of the past with the aesthetic and performance sensibilities of today.

The portfolio also includes a collection of kitchen sinks and fittings, as well as the AT Series, a state-of-the-art smart toilet recently profiled in the Los Angeles Times.

In a unique move, DXV established an online and print community for designers, architects and creative individuals to discuss their experience with the products in the real world and spark inspiration among their peers. To start the conversation, meet the inaugural DXV Design Panel  and see the six highly individual spaces they created drawing on the DXV portfolio of products


Question #1

To Bidet or Not to Bidet: Is America ready? Will smart toilets gain acceptance?

Question #2

What could bath manufacturers offer to help you bring wellness to home bathrooms?

The third stop on our tour is Mr. Steam – booth #917

Your work as design professionals makes life better for your clients. The colors they see and the textures they feel create the emotional response they have every time they walk into their home.

Perhaps no space in the home makes this connection more than the bathroom, where your expertise touches the most personal aspects of your clients’ lives.

A home steam shower from Mr. Steam, the Feel Good company, can be the difference between creating a beautiful bathroom and designing a complete in-home wellness experience. Regular steam sessions can benefit respiratory health, nourish and hydrate skin, and promote restful sleep, just to name a few of the 44 benefits of steam showers. Steam showers are the sustainable luxury, using no more than two gallons of water for a 20-minute steam.

Help educate your clients with the Steam Showers Buying Guide from Mr. Steam.

Life is better when you feel good. Mr. Steam is Feel Good, Inc.



Question #1

Ask Mrs Steam: Tweet questions to Martha Orellana about specifying and installing residential steam showers. #askMrsSteam

Question #2

What do you think are the top 10 benefits of steam?
