What Did We Learn From Habitus Kitchen & Bathroom LIVE?

In celebration of the annual Habitus Kitchen & Bathroom issue, Poliform, Australia, hosted Habitus for an exclusive panel on emerging trends and behaviours in these spaces.


Each year, we see the annual Habitus Kitchen & Bathroom issue as an opportunity not only to look at and revel in the beauty of some of the most stunning kitchens and bathrooms, but also report on the innovation in these spaces and the changing patterns and behaviours architects and designers are responding to.

These issues, insights, concerns and successes are explored in different ways throughout the magazine from the Design Hunters we profile; the regional projects we visit, and of course the feature articles investigated and authored by our returning Kitchen & Bathroom guest feature editor, Leanne Amodeo.

So it felt right that this year, to celebrate the issue, we bring these articles to life. Poliform, Australia, was our gracious host on Wednesday 10 July for a live discussion centred around the themes explored in Habitus #44.

Habitus editor Holly Cunneen was joined on stage by Andrew Benn, founder and director Benn+Penna Architecture; Jennifer McMaster, co-founder and co-director of TRIAS; and Meredith Ong, NSW Poliform state manager.

As a group we looked at Biophilia in the kitchen and bathroom and the comprehensive ways this can be achieved. This lead to a discussion about residents’ desire to be connected to the outdoors more than ever before and from where this stems. We explored the difference between a flexible kitchen and a malleable one – and what that difference can mean. We looked at ways to future-proof architecture and design and the rituals of these spaces; traditional and emerging.

It was a lively discussion with a lot of interesting points made.

Guests were offered 15 per cent off Poliform’s entire kitchen collection and left with a copy of the annual Habitus Kitchen & Bathroom issue and a gift from Leif.

Habitus would like to thank our panellists Andrew Benn, Jennifer McMaster and Meredith Ong for their time and insightful contributions. We would also like to thank our friends at Poliform, Australia, and Leif for their support.
