Kohler - Mark Bickerstaffe

MODERNISM:

  • modern character or quality of thought, expression, or technique

  • a style or movement in the arts that aims to break with classical and traditional forms


At Kohler, modernism means fresh thinking, which is evident in their modern installation during Salone del Mobile 2018. The installation centered on innovation and modernity, which encompasses the spectrum of minimalism to maximalism, with a focus on expression. While in Milan, Design Milk spoke with Kohler Director of New Product Development, Mark Bickerstaffe.

Brizo articulating kitchen faucet

The Brizo Articulating Kitchen Faucet is not only beautiful but also makes it easy to put your faucet exactly where you need it!

Inspired in part by a series of interviews conducted with high-profile chefs (including Jamie Bissonnette, Paul Qui and George Mendes), the articulating arm offers a larger range of movement than a traditional pull-down faucet—letting you perfectly position the faucet for any task at hand.

Kohler Artifact with BerrySoft

Delta SprayShield Technology

So excited about the new spray shield technology from Delta. Never will you soak yourself again when using your kitchen faucet sprayer.

Delta® ShieldSpray Technology delivers a simple yet practical means to clean with laser-like precision while containing mess and splatter. A concentrated jet of water powers stubborn messes away as an innovative water shield simultaneously contains splatter and clears off the mess. Together, these actions decrease the time spent soaking, scrubbing and even shirt swapping based on splatter.

How did you get into interior design?

Being an artist I have always worked in the creative industry after graduating from Art College. It was through my love for real estate and investing that the door for renovations, interior design and decorating opened up for me.

What is your favorite thing about working on a project?

This would have to be the brainstorming process. I love it when anything is still possible and we are developing ideas to present to a client. The final unveil is great too but that is also scary at the same time!

How long have you been working with the Ensuite Showroom?

My relationship with the Ensuite Showroom is brand new. I started by working with them helping to design their Mississauga showroom. Since then, I am in there all the time now sourcing!

Do you have a favorite brand you like to use?

I have lots of favorites to be honest. What works/fits for a client makes me excited. Kohler is fantastic and Wet Style, Zucchetti and Hansgrohe all have style and quality that makes my job easier.

Do you have a favorite brand you like to use?

When you have a product that is well designed and of a high quality then your client will appreciate and enjoy using it for years after you are finished and that is very important for me to know and associate myself with.

What is a favorite project you have worked on?

Just one!?! I did a very large basement with 3 washrooms. It was fun creating different looks but with a cohesive feel in one space. Also an open concept master ensuite where I was able to push the envelope with tile layout and bathroom flow.

What inspires you?

Creating something new! A passionate client who wants me to dig deep and surprise them. Seeing a cleanly designed space with a hit of something unexpected integrated smartly into it.

When you have a product that is well designed and of a high quality then your client will appreciate and enjoy using it for years after you are finished.

What do you think is going to be the hottest trend in bathrooms in 2018?

I am trying to push tile layouts that are more than just laid the way they have been manufactured! Soon people will catch on… I hope...ha ha! But right now I see the push to more matte finished fixtures being tops on the request list.

What is your go to thing that you think no bathroom should be without?

There is no one thing really, but I do like to create a bathroom that can accommodate my clients mood. Not everyday do you want water to fall onto your head. Sometimes a gentle back massage is in order after a long week. A well designed bathroom should feel good no matter how long you want to spend in there.

What is the best advice you would give a client when doing a renovation?

Plan, plan and plan! Then be open to alter that plan!

What is the best advice you ever received?

The less you worry about pleasing people and just let your creative juices flow, the more people will be pleased by what you can do.
