Urbis looks back on the Designday® installations.

Taking out the People’s Choice text vote held on Designday®, the Kohler / Salasai installation was an ethereal interpretation of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire. Live models lounged in Salasai, dipping their fingertips into overflowing baths in the water area, picking the petals from flowers in the earth installation, surrounded by pink balloons in the air room, and lit with flickering candles in the fire area. 

Kirsha Whitcher, the designer and founder of Salasai, along with Kelly Watson and Dan Ahwa, put together the installtion. Running throughout the Kohler showroom, Designday® guests had something to look at at almost every turn. And while the gorgeous models did turn many heads, one of the most popular spots were the basins filled with lollies where guests could fill bags before heading off to the next showroom.

This was an innovative coming together of fashion and designer bathroomware.
