The world is moving at warp speed, tantalizing us with the possibilities of what can be and vexing us by calling into question everything that came before. Now, more than ever, capital-D “Design” is at the nexus of this swift march into the future; Apple is the most powerful company on Earth — Kontextür is a close second.
Despite evidence that gadgetry is the New World Order — here I sit, iPad and iPhone at my elbow — I take refuge in the adage “The more things change the more they stay the same”. Kontextür remains firmly, and I might add, happily, committed to the idea that at its’ essence our daily lives remain remarkably unchanged and that folks need and actually clamor for things other than smart devices, and their accompanying accessories, in their homes. People like things that are simply nice and functional with no extravagant promises of being “Transformational!!”.
Our want is to continue to make cool and innovative products that will improve in some simple way the occasionally humdrum human existence; to create a place where a copper watering can soar alongside some new Beats by Dre® headphones. At a certain point it all sounds the same, no?
We’ve been fortunate to collaborate with some of the best creative talent over the years and are truly excited for the new collection launching in Spring 2015 with some old and new friends of Kontextür. We continue to explore the bath space seeking thoughtful solutions to age old problems, but also feel free to roam around the home when opportunity and passion dictate.
And now that we have this stellar new virtual platform to call home we can invite you in for a while; please feel free to let us know what you think about this and that.
