I recently returned home from Memphis, where I attended a truly eye-opening design event. The Blogger19 Reunion, hosted by Brizo, was three full days of tours, projects, and a host of emotional experiences. I was part of a group of designers and bloggers who also attended Brizo’s New York Fashion Week, and what an amazing opportunity to reconnect with old friends… and to see behind-the-scenes of the Brizo factory and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their related Target House.
St. Jude might seem like an unusual destination for 80 designers and architects, even if it’s in the same city as a luxury faucet manufacturer, but Brizo is a proud Sponsor of the Hospital’s work and one of its big fundraising projects, the Dream Home Giveaway. Brizo not only invited us to see their factory, but also to witness first hand the philosophy and design concept of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Facility and the Target House, which provides housing for families of those children undergoing extensive long-term treatment.
Brizo’s work with St. Jude and the Dream Home Giveaway is an extension of their forward-thinking approach to their business. The brand is known for collaboration, not only with good causes like St. Jude but with fashion designer Jason Wu as well as with our group of bloggers. This collaborative approach allows Brizo to stay on the cutting edge of faucet design, delivering innovative styles that include the features that designers and homeowners crave. They are focused on increasingly sustainable designs as well as convenience and ease of use in the kitchen and bathroom. Even if I didn’t already love the aesthetic beauty of their faucets and shower systems, their commitment to making the world a better and more creative place would earn my loyalty to Brizo as a brand.
