A walk inside KISH isn’t just a walk in the newly revamped showroom of award-winning furniture designer and renowned visual storyteller Ito Kish; it’s also a tour showcasing the world’s best in home, lifestyle, and fashion.
What is news is that it just opened the doors of its exclusive Ito Kish showroom to the public. It’s a move that not only benefits local clients but also customers from abroad who visit the Philippines to view Ito’s collection. On the second floor of the 90-sqm showroom is the former office space that is now devoted to Ito’s three collections: Basilisa, Baluster, and Rosario. The star of the Baluster collection and the iconic piece that famously “started it all,” the Gregoria, is a tribute to Ito’s mother. He narrates, “I named my very first piece after my mother, and I guess it’s my way of paying respect. I did not know the Gregoria will garner any award when it was first released in March 2012 at Manila FAME, so in a way, it sort of immortalized my respect for my mother.”
