Architect and TV presenter George Clarke has become the first brand ambassador for New Zealand premium shower and tapware manufacturer Methven.
In his first role as brand ambassador, Clarke (pictured) will be on the Methven stand all morning of the Sleep Hotel Design event at the London Business Design Centre on November 22.
Clarke agreed a partnership after initially using one of its Satinjet showers while visiting family in New Zealand.
Methven said he was particularly keen to learn more about the brands’ approach to new product development, use of materials and the water and energy saving benefits the product offers.
“I’m really excited to be teaming up with Methven which is a fabulous brand and I’ve been more than impressed with the stunning products it brings to market,” Clarke said. “The business has stayed true to its New Zealand roots with a focus on the environment and on design and innovation – all of which makes them really stand out from the crowd. I’m really looking forward to meeting the team and working with them in the coming months.”
Martin Walker, chief executive of Methven UK, commented: “I’m delighted George shares our passion, he’s a perfect fit for our brand. At Methven we believe in delivering amazing experiences as well as stunning design and we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation. We wanted someone who supported our cause and is a passionate advocate for NZ design and innovation – and we have found that in George.”
