We are starting our Dwell on Design Progressive KBtribechat in the TOTO booth (#1446).

Modern, Livable Designs for All

TOTONeorest-Suite-Lowres

At TOTO, we understand the importance of the bathroom in people’s lives. After all, it’s the only room you rely on every day! By keeping this in mind, we design products that can make a mundane bathroom visit a meaningful and inspiring experience for everyone – regardless of age or physical ability. With our timeless styling and flawless, efficient performance, your bathroom will always be “trending.”

TOTO’s KBtribechat Questions:

Question 1:  Contemporary looks don’t stay that way for long. How can you give your bathroom a modern look without it becoming dated in the future?

Question 2:  With the drought in CA, water-efficiency is a priority. What are ways you can reduce your water use without sacrificing a luxury bathroom experience?

Question 3:  How can you achieve socially sustainable designs in the bathroom and avoid the drab “institutional” look?

Question 4:  Tiny homes are trending. What are ways you can save space in the bathroom without giving up style or functionality?

At 11:28 we will be walking over to the Miele USA booth (#1347).

Range and Dishwasher – No Better Complement

Balance requires flawless symmetry…in form, function and fit.  Miele’s Generation 6000 dishwashers are a natural extension of the culinary appliances, aligning perfectly in terms of design, functionality, and user interface. Dare to cook and clean differently when pairing the Miele Range with the new Miele Generation 6000 dishwasher series and be amazed by the results.

We are excited to host the progressive KBTribeChat at our booth (#1347) during this year’s DwellonDesign tradeshow. Please join us at 11:32 am PST on Friday, May 29th.

Question 2: Miele’s solution to a handless kitchen is a dishwasher that can open by knocking. How would the #K20 balance your or your clients’ kitchen?

Question 3: #G6000dishwashers have a consistent look with #TheMieleRange and Range Hoods. Can you identify elements of the harmonious design?
