Editor Martin Allen-Smith looks forward to EuroCucina in April’s Designer magazine

From the editor…

Last month’s KBB show in Birmingham certainly provided plenty of talking points for us to get stuck into this month. It was the kind of exhibition we had all hoped for, with lots of positivity, ideas and brand-new products. Whether you made it along to the event or not, don’t miss our round-up of some of the key highlights in this issue, including a striking new industrial-style brassware range from Crosswater, and a bold bathroom collection by Patricia Urquiola for Laufen.

There’s much more innovation on the horizon too, with Eurocucina opening its doors once again in Milan from 17-22 April. The biennial kitchen showcase is Europe’s biggest, and we take a look ahead to what is one of the most important events in the global kitchen design calendar.

Elsewhere this month, we check out some of the very latest cooking appliances on the market, from sleek hobs to feature- packed ovens and powerful extractor hoods. We also find out about an innovative collaboration between several key brands looking to make a difference to the burgeoning self- build market, with insight from some of the major players on a part of the industry that has huge potential in years to come.

Enjoy the issue.
