 I love just about everything architect and designer Patricia Urquiola has designed for the Haworth portfolio. She lives and works in Milan and you can see the Italian influences in her designs, like  Maari  that was launched at NeoCon 2018.

  MY PATH IS MY OWN.   I once owned and published an award-winning magazine; (i4design) that was focused on architecture, art and design that was for the A&D community in the Midwest, so I have always had a passion for architecture and design. I sat on the Board of Trustees and served as their President at Harrington College of Design which gave me a unique perspective on the importance of design and its future designers. I also am an international travel and have traversed the globe many times over. This has given me a unique world’s view on design and how it affects all aspects of our lives.  Design DOES Matter.

  PROUD TO CARRY THE KAYHAN FLAG.   The legacy for one, Kayhan’s reputation is Iconic and has done business internationally in over 28 countries worldwide. I’m proud of our preferred status as a Haworth dealer. Their CEO, Franco Bianchi is focused on design and technology and has acquired some wonderful lines such as Capellini, Poltrana Frau and Cassina all of which is exciting to have as an opportunity to work with here at Kayhan.

  WORKED WITH SOME AMAZING CLIENTS.   I’m particularly proud Kayhan’s work with Wight & Company who we worked with on the ACGME Headquarters. It won an AIA Design Excellence Award in Interior Architecture. This not-for-profit medical organization required a new workplace strategy in a four-floor space that fostered a solid, collaborative culture. This is a trend we are seeing more and more in the workplace.
