There are only two guarantees in life: death and taxes. That’s what they say, right? You can’t predict the future definitively but there are certainly measures you can take to prepare yourself.
Enter Cosentino. Following the release and publication of The Global Kitchen Study, which they helped produce, they hosted a brunch in their Sydney showroom to unveil insights into global trends within the kitchen, emerging technology, usage habits, responsive design, and ultimately to predict the future of the kitchen and its role in the home.
Vanessa Feo, Global Head of Communications for Cosentino; Chef Felix Halter; and Jacqueline Symond, Director at the speciality colour consulting agency, The Colour Agency, each speaker shared a brief presentation before diving into an impassioned panel discussion.
Interestingly, a lot of the trends emerging globally – technology in the kitchen, open plan layouts, luxury appliances becoming common place, expansive design and plenty of clean storage – have already presented themselves in Australia.
