Gold in New York Geberit movie wins award
The Geberit movie “Rely on us. And relax.” was awarded Gold at the New York Festivals 2022. It shows in a humorous way how important reliability is when it comes to choosing the right partner for your project.
Paul Bishop Bishop Design
Paul Bishop is the founder of the two companies Bishop Design and Rogue. Both are headquartered in Dubai. He is a multi-award winning designer and an icon in the world of interior design. In 1996, he seized the opportunity to move from England to Dubai, which was in the process of growing out of the desert. On the one hand a bold move, but also an opportunity for an aspiring designer to make an internationally recognised name for himself in this growing and promising metropolis. His success proves that he had made the right decision.
We welcomed him at our office in Dubai and were talking about design trends and innovation.

We had the opportunity to talk to him at his office and get a glimpse of his team and the projects they are working on. Joe Tabet was talking about the different types of projects, the challenges they are facing, and his view of the future.

Showroom opening In the heart of Istanbul
Despite the difficult situation worldwide we could celebrate a showroom opening on the European side of Istanbul in Mecidiyeköy. The Geberit dealer Yılmazlar Banyo Merkezi opened a Geberit showroom.
