Collaboration: Watch House
"As a company, it is important to us to form collaborative partnerships with suppliers who share our ethos. Quality, to us, is everything and this made KINTO an obvious choice. From our perspective, KINTO understands the importance of bringing the beautiful into everyday life. Of balancing the aesthetic with the useful. We didn’t want to simply create a vessel for keeping coffee hot and then slap our name on it. We wanted to provide our customers with a total sensory experience; first taking-in the beautifully sleek and simple design of the tumbler, feeling its weight and texture, before finally, of course, tasting the perfectly-prepared drink it contains. This made a collaboration between Watch House and KINTO an inevitability."
Watch House is a company with humble origins and grand ambitions. It started small, reviving a derelict but beautiful 19th Century building into its first House on London’s famous Bermondsey Street in 2014. Over the years, as they've opened more Houses, their aim evolved into driving the speciality coffee industry into a new era, one which they call Modern Coffee. Honouring the histories of the buildings and communities that home their Houses is an integral part of their ethos. Combining this with a design-first mentality, they've created spaces that are simultaneously familiar and unique. For Watch House, Modern Coffee is about providing great coffee and delicious food in beautifully bespoke environments.
