Bathroom supplier produces The Heritage film to celebrate silver anniversary

Italian bathroom brand Devon & Devon celebrated 25 years of business showcasing a short film, The Heritage, at its Notting Hill showroom in London.

Directed by Luca Lucini, The Heritage showcased the company’s motto of ‘Created in Florence. Inspired by the world’, featuring the company’s products against the backdrop of Florence where the firm was founded.

The company originates from a building materials supplier, founded in 1945 by Guilo Tanini, and which grew into a distributor of flooring materials, ceramic tiling and bathroom fixtures and fittings. This led to the formation of Devon & Devon, which was established in 1989 by the second generation of the family Gianni Tanini and Paola Ciarmatori Tanini.

With a turnover of 21million, Devon & Devon now has a global presence, in locations such as London, Singapore, Milan and Vienna, and has been specified for projects including Blakes Hotel in London, the Four Seasons in Istanbul and the Dolce & Gabbana shop in Rome.

Marketing manager Teresa Tanini commented at the 25th anniversary event : “We want to celebrate our 25th anniversary, 25 years of growth and changes for Devon & Devon. We are a family business and we are also here because over the past year we have changed our presence and we have presented this movie ‘The Heritage’ which tells the story, in a lateral way, of our family, [and]  the way we work. It is a different way of telling a story about our brand.”
