Portraits, stories and interviews
Kristina Zanic is a prominent figure in the Interior Design industry in Asia and the Middle East.
She is an internationally recognised interior designer who won a multitude of interior design awards for her projects in the field of hospitality. Being the co-founder and owner of dwp, Kristina spent over 20 years in Thailand, and since 2012 she is based in Dubai where she started her own name sake firm Kristina Zanic Consultants. She is world-traveller and getting her inspiration from the places she is visiting: inspired by her desire to travel and to explore foreign cultures, Kristina’s design inspiration is a result of the fusion of elements and detail from her travels.
We met her at her office and had a chat about her work, good design and one of her latest projects.
Showroom opening in the heart of Istanbul
Despite the difficult situation worldwide we could celebrate a showroom opening on the European side of Istanbul in Mecidiyeköy. The Geberit dealer Yılmazlar Banyo Merkezi opened a Geberit showroom. Maybe nothing special at first sight, but when you look at it a bit closer you realise that we got a gem in the heart of one of the biggest cities in Turkey.
