DESIGN POD

Ep. 1 Choosing Your Lane

Season 1, Ep. 1

In association with Bathroom Brands Group, and to kickstart our DESIGN POD journey, editor Hamish Kilburn and co-host Harriet Forde explore the topic of ‘choosing your lane’ in architecture and design. Whether you are working for a brand, independently or are about to embark in a new journey, choosing your lane – your style, if you like – is an integral and pivotal moment of any design/architecture process. In order put some personality into this topic, Kilburn interviews special guest interior designer Constanina Tsoutsikou, the former Creative Director of HBA London, to understand the process and challenges that came with launching her new design studio, Studio LOST.
