The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2018 was held in sunny warm Orlando! We had the opportunity to go and resource new products for our interior design project kitchen and bath needs. The show was amazing and packed full of vendors showing their new and innovated products based around kitchens & baths. KBIS is one of the best shows to attend if you are a kitchen & bath designer. We feel like we need to attend to keep up with the trends and the cutting edge innovation that is out there in the market place.
Our mission during this KBIS show was to find the best of the best countertop / surfaces company. When we walked into COMPAC, The Surfaces Company’s booth at the show we were literally blown away by their cutting edge products & display of their products! We found the best one at COMPAC! COMPAC, Surfaces Company, is a quartz & marble company based out of Spain. The company was founded in 1975 & was the first Spanish company that specialized in quartz & marble surfaces. They have been around and have an outstanding track record in the industry with the best of the best materials & products to select from fro interior design projects.
COMPAC’s booth at KBIS was one of the sexiest most cutting edge booth designs we saw at the show – it was our favorite! First of all their marble and quartz that were on display were the main visuals that drew us into the booth. We learned that COMPAC partnered with two design studios based in Valencia Spain: Janfri & Ranchal and GG Architects. They created these amazing chic spaces and broke the booth up into three areas. Our favorite two areas were the center kitchen area where they showcased and featured one of our favorites ICE BLACK as a kitchen island with a built-in sink out of the same material. This ICE BLACK material is COMPAC’s premium collection of quartz. We clearly saw that there were no limits to creating any kind of surface with COMPAC’s materials.
Our second favorite area was the last area in their booth where COMPAC had designed walls made of their UNIQUE CALACATTA in quartz slabs with a latticework of star cutouts. It was truly the sexiest design we saw at the show! On top of these amazing walls in the center of the space was this fabulous custom made sculptural piece made out of COMPAC’s UNIQUE CALACATTA quartz - the inner part of the sculpture is made out of COMPAC’s UNIQUE MARQUINA quartz slabs. This custom sculptural piece looked like a modern take on a bath. It was over the top amazing. This piece really showcased the quality of COMPAC’s quartz products. It gave us a complete visual on just how far we can take the design with their product. It showed the durability of the quartz on the cuts and the seeming of the custom sculptural bath piece.
