Everyone knows how much I love great bathrooms. I first heard about Kuysen when they opened their first showroom in Greenbelt in 1989 and I was invited to do a collaboration with them.
When we started building our house more than 15 years ago, I came back to Kuysen as a customer.
Kuysen Enterprises was founded by Kuysen Go, who started with Tyrolit, a brand of bonded abrasives. Later on, Kuysen also brought in German manufacturing brands Hansgrohe and Duravit, and it became one of the country’s foremost authorities in bathrooms and bathroom fixtures and accessories.
When Kuysen invited us to their newest showroom at The Eton Greenbelt Residences, Legaspi Street, Makati, we were excited to discover their new offerings, such as the Zanotta mirror and Vibia Cosmos lights at the entrance.
“Kuysen’s mandate is to bring uninterrupted elegance to the whole house,” said Kuysen Enterprises President Jensen Go.
The opening of the showroom also served as the start of Kuysen’s venture into furniture and lighting with international premium brands like Porro, Living Divani, Zanotta, Ceccotti, Baxter, Paolo Lenti and Vibia.
These bring the brands under Kuysen’s umbrella to over 30.
Kuysen’s great minds at the opening:
President Jensen Go, Design Director Marleen Go-Uyecio and Sanitec President Edison Go, together with Amelia Tagliabue, Davide Dal Bianco, Roberto Pozzoli, Marco Van Velsen, Patrick Ung, Carlo Ranieri and Gianluca Ceccotti to name a few.
Kuysen believes every item from its showroom is an investment.
Porro has an impressive selection of wood veneers for bedroom luxury and wardrobe systems. The Italian brand combines manual craftsmanship and state of the art manufacturing processes.
Living Divani has been producing sofas, armchairs, beds, bookcases, storage, carpet and outdoor furniture since the early 1970s. Its upholstery collection is what Living Divani is best known for.
Baxter, which is also an Italian brand, is popular for luxury leather furniture. The leather is skillfully processed and naturally treated (to retain and enhance its intrinsic qualities) by master tanners.
Paola Lenti, unlike the three other brands mentioned, is more colorful. The brand is known for outdoor furniture that are made from innovative materials and come in fun colors. Many pieces are made from a patented rope fashioned from special weaving techniques.
Vibia isn’t just about lighting; it’s about creating atmospheres. The Barcelona-based decorative and architectural lighting company allows its clients to customize lighting according to their needs and specifications. But the collaborative process is not mundane but more artsy. It’s a brand that is highly admired by artists, designers, design students and architects.
Zanotta tells the story of over 60 years of curiosity and experiments. With over 550 products manufactured since 1954, Zanotta has carved its own place in the extensive and discriminating world of design.
Next year, Kuysen will open its five-story showroom designed by renowned architect Ed Calma. It will be a design and experience center that will give new meaning to the words “user experience.”
