United by their common heritage of sustainable brand values, craftsmanship and industry-leading design, global bathroom brand Grohe and Dutch tile manufacturer Mosa are partnering to celebrate the return of Clerkenwell Design Week after its two-year hiatus.
The two brands will be presenting a series of circular economy and sustainability events at Mosa’s St John’s Street showroom, with a programme that comprises talks, CPDs and gatherings. Both companies will also be celebrating the recent achievement of being Cradle to Cradle Certified at the Gold level for their respective products. An exclusive evening for architects and designers with Dr Michael Braungart, the pioneer of Cradle to Cradle design and a founder of Cradle to Cradle Certified is set to be a highlight of the week’s programme, which will also feature keynote talks from Mosa CEO Frank Spikker, and Grohe global design lead Patrick Speck.
Patrick Speck said: “With our Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold Level accredited products, we’re placing a higher focus on working towards a circular economy and increasing awareness around the global waste crisis. As a leading manufacturer, it’s imperative we drive the transformation and innovative practices needed to mobilise the whole industry in becoming more sustainable and circular. We are pleased that the topic of sustainability is pushing further up the agenda and look forward to engaging in a dialogue with other industry leaders at Clerkenwell design week alongside our partnerships Mosa.”
Frank Spikker said: “Sustainability and circular principles are taking on greater and greater significance across the building industry. We are delighted to use our return to London for Clerkenwell Design Week as an opportunity to showcase the ways in which suppliers like Mosa and Grohe can play a critical role in equipping architects, designers, and developers with the sustainable, circular products they need to create spaces that have a positive impact on people and planet now – and into the future.”
