Kitchens and bathrooms in Indian homes started seeing huge design investment in India a decade and a half ago. When global brands and design entrepreneurs came knocking, the word ‘house proud’ stretched and became inclusive of the two neglected spaces. We focus this month on these two essential spaces. The book starts with the latest in global kitchen/bathroom accessories in the Design In Context section. It will give you a glimpse into what today’s marketplace looks like, how high the bar has been set, how exacting consumers have become and how dynamic designers are. We follow this up with exhaustive stories featuring kitchens and bathrooms from around the world. In my time editing the magazine, one thing has been apparent – bit-by-bit, country-by-country, people are exploring their identities - in what they are choosing to build, in the objects they surround themselves with and in the spaces they live in. So in the pages inside, you will see a reflection of that – experimentation, innovation but one that is customized. And the pièce de résistance? An interview with the iconic designer Marcel Wanders. A must read.
