Urbis looks back on the Designday® installations.

The designers from Make Something, Zoe Ikin and and John Shepherd, were inspired by the automotive gloss, sexiness and function of the Porsche kitchen, and decided to draw on this vision of technological and functional perfection by making the space a man cave.

Serving beer and sausages, and with small installations throughout the kitchen (and the Artesio kitchen) that elegantly added a workshop element to the man kitchens, this was a creative interpretation of an already slick showroom.

Powder-coated saws, axes and wrenches were all subtle plays, with a wrench delicately holding a lime, and a round saw blade perched next to a loaf of bread. The craftsmanship and execution of each element in this design was spectacular, and matched the artistry of the kitchens. Indeed, one almost felt they were in a contemporary art gallery looking at sculptures rather than a bustling Urbis Designday®.
