Kohler had a lot to live up to as the winners of the coveted People’s Choice Award for Urbis Designday 2011. Embracing the pressure, the showroom wanted to create a fun, interactive and playful day so settled on circus as their Colour in Motion theme. With their exposed rafters draped with brightly coloured fabrics, spun candy floss and games, this was one circus that visitors became a part of, rather than just watched from the sidelines. 

Collaborating with Resene, models were painted as crazy caricatures and showmen. Colour was everywhere from the mural outside to the artworks by Art Associates. Everywhere you looked something interesting was happening from fairground games to invented machines that drew pictures on the wall. The vibe was lively and fun, and everyone was having a great time as they played around, got involved in painting a mural, or watched the models as they transformed.
