5 minutes with... Marc from Candana

For this segment, we normally interview the wonderful architects and designers we have the pleasure of working with. But today I thought I'd try something a little different and ask our very own managing director, Marc Reed to share his insights into design and bathrooms.

No one is more familiar with the workings of the bathroom industry than Marc who is the second generation owner of the store. He lives, breathes and sleeps design bathroomware and has gladly agreed to share a few of his thoughts. 

Describe your design aesthetic in 5 words…
Simplicity, convenient, consistant, practical, fun

Which bathroom brand are you most likely to specify for your clients?

Who are some international designers/architects that you admire?
If you could design anyone’s bathroom (past or present), whose would it be? And what would you do with it?
My son Charlie's bathroom: I would use the Encaustic tiles in the triangle pattern as my design base then run with a fun theme from there with colour, practicality and unique pieces.
