Meet the Winners – The Culture of Living: The Inspired Kitchen Contest

Posted on

For Gaggenau, The Inspired Kitchen is a contest that pays homage to the heart of the home by inspiring design that assures, entertains, and sparks conversation. Designers were invited to put their creativity and design philosophy to the test by creating a culinary space where luxury is expressed through emotion, materials, craftsmanship, and aesthetics. Each designer submitted 3-to-6 kitchen illustrations, renderings, or drawings, including three Gaggenau appliances, as well as a written narrative describing their design inspiration and appliance selection. And, in the spirit of giving back, for the first 20 entrants, Gaggenau donated $500 per submission to The James Beard Foundation—an organization whose mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders making America’s food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable.

The five winning designs were chosen based on creativity, originality, and functionality:

Meet Me @ The Altar share “Garden,” become your new favorite pop-punk band

Posted on

Who had Paramore down as the most influential band of their generation? Fifteen years on from the release of their debut album All We Know Is Falling, teenagers are still picking up guitars, getting in their feelings, and trying to emulate the Tennessee pop-punks. Not least the members of Meet Me @ The Altar — 19-year-old guitarist Téa Campbell, 21-year-old drummer Ada Juarez, and 19-year-old vocalist Edith Johnson — who all would have been infants when “Pressure” was making its way around torrent sites. Now they’re announcing that they’ve signed to emo bastion Fueled By Ramen, releasing a hugely satisfying new single called “Garden,” and setting themselves up as one of the most exciting young pop bands in the United States.

“Garden,” the video for which is premiering at the foot of the page, is a throwback in every sense: half-pace arpeggiated riffs, a massive chorus, chugging breakdowns thrown

Meet the Mumbai family that built a Rs 25 Cr business by bringing German luxury kitchen brands to India

Posted on

In 1998, while visiting Japan, Hamendra and Rati Sharma would walk to the train station every day and see a store by Poggenpohl, a leading German kitchen brand.

Captivated by the luxurious designs on display, inspired the couple to start a business that would bring luxury and modular kitchens to India.

The duo made this dream a reality in 1998 by starting SIS Imports in Mumbai, bringing Poggenpohl to the Indian market. In 2015, the business was rebranded to Plusch, and is responsible for introducing several German luxury kitchen, wardrobe and furniture brands to India.

Their daughter Sukriti Sharma, who is a partner at Plusch, tells SMBStory, “Not many people believed in my parents’ dream because no one felt there was a market for luxury kitchens [in India]. But we pioneered the movement and brought brands like Poggenpohl, Eggersmann, and Beckermann for kitchens; Interluebke and Schmalenbach
