EDITOR’S COMMENT VIVE LA


DIFFÉRENCE!


o mark International Women’s Day this month [March 8] we decided to make this issue a celebration of the women helping to shape this sector.


This focus isn’t about pitting men and women against each other to fi nd who is better at selling or designing kitchens and bathrooms. It is about highlighting that, in the same way that men do, women bring different and valuable perspectives, ideas and approaches. And, thefore, how a more diverse workforce at all levels could increase the


success of not only individual companies and brands, but the entire industry. The joint founder of Bathroom Origins and kbbreview Retail & Design


Awards judge Sofi a Charalambous takes the opportunity to celebrate how far women have come in the industry (page 14). While designer Nikita Pearce (page 16) is urging us to be more inclusive in order to encourage more women to view the industry as a genuine career path. We talk with Franciska Wülker from bathroom brand Duravit, who is


fl ying the fl ag for women in engineering and product development roles in the industry. We also hear from more of the sector’s infl uential women to get their perspectives on the industry (pages 23-34). Continuing with the theme of empowering women, we’re highlighting two successful retail businesses – both of which just happen to be run by all-female teams.


First up is Scottish Bulthaup dealership, Cameron Interiors (pages 50-52). We talk to managing director Kirsten Robeson about the business and why she decided to hand over ownership of the business to her teamnas she looks to take a step back from the company. Our second retail visit takes us to Pontyclun in Wales, where we catch up with the all-female team at bathroom specialist The Tap End. Despite having only been open since 2017, it’s been a fi nalist at the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards two years running. Joint owner Justine Bullock explains its impressive journey (pages 54-56).
