the arch patterns found on the WasteLAB tile are both a culturally appropriate to a more traditional hammam setting and a metaphor for the process of waste material being reborn with new purpose. Some visitors may have experienced the three-room immersive installation primarily as a place of beauty and respite: some- where to pause amidst the Design Miami/ bustle. Others had the chance to dig deeper by attending a discussion with Debs, Laura Kohler, and Design Miami/ curatorial director MC Didero, who explored how such collabo- rations can address societal shifts and lead to more sustainable designs. “Having the opportunity to design a modern hammam at Design Miami/ truly embodies the sentiment that well-being transcends all culture,” says Nada Debs. “I am excited to offer such a unique experience to the industry.” To learn more about Kohler’s collabora- tions and presence at events such as Design Miami/, visit studiokohler.com. ■
