Welcome to the latest issue of HoReCa from the team who bring you Tableware International.
This is our special Host issue, where we preview one of the most highly-anticipated events in the hospitality calendar. Held every two years, Host attracts quality suppliers and buyers – exhibitors such as Amefa, Costa Nova, Steelite, Sambonet, WMF, RAK, Narumi will all be there along with many other top-tier names. Turn to page 42 for our six-page preview of the event.
Wilmax take our cover this month and tell us about the versatile Monolith range on page 18 while on page 40, Cerve – who will also be at Host – tell us about their new launches for the Vidivi brand. Another company at Host will be Stölzle Lausitz and they have a lovely launch to talk about. Cocoon is a special one for them, it was imagined by Leopold Grupp, CEO of Stölzle Lausitz, who wanted to create a collection which would unify the most exceptional attributes of a wine glass into a singular, harmonious design. It’s well worth a visit to the Stölzle Lausitz stand at Host to check it out.
One of my favourite pieces in this month’s magazine is our interview with Charlie Martens from Studio Mattes. Charlie kindly did the interview during his holiday in Ibiza! A fantastic talent whose work was first introduced to me by talent spotter extraordinaire, our columnist Valda Goodfellow. Charlie is self-taught, deeply passionate and humble to boot. See more of his work on page 22.
