During Milan Design Week 2024 Salvatori unveils the brand’s first bathroom collection developed in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola.

Meet The Makers - Royston Wilson - The Kitchen and Bathroom Blog 07/04/2024

Today we meet Royston Wilson from Royston Wilson Design. A heavyweight in the design industry, Royston is also known for his connection to KBDi – first as a founding member then as a board member and President, and most recently as the (now retired) Executive Director – as well as his time spent on the HIA (Vic) Kitchen & Bathroom Committee and his impressive swag of local, national and international awards.

Royston’s journey into the design world was not straightforward; his career has spanned such diverse industries as butchery, hairdressing and painting. Eventually, though, he discovered interior design and soon thereafter started winning awards and making a name for himself on the local and international scene.
