Jo Cole


In this instalment of Meet the Experts, we speak to Jo Cole, Assistant Product Group Manager for architectural hardware and assisted living at Häfele, who tells us about the latest trends and what to expect at kbb 2020.


Tell us about your role at Häfele

I’m responsible for architectural hardware at Häfele, as well as our assisted living range. I’ve worked in this area since July 2019, but I’ve been at Häfele for 20 years in total, previously supporting inventory and buying.”  


What can we expect to see in architectural ironmongery at kbb?

"We'll be displaying popular trends in terms of finishes and styles in handles and hinges. These include matt black, rose gold and copper, which are designed to complement the wider design trends in kitchen cabinetry. We will also be featuring popular styles like antique bronze and textured lever handles.”


“You’ll also find that Häfele is introducing these colourways into its sinks, taps, profiles and plinths too, so at kbb customers will be able to see how these different products come together to create an integrated and complementary look with key details and finishes.”
