Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom furniture manufacturer Symphony is set to launch Freedom, a multi-generational and accessible kitchen, at the Occupational Therapy Show at the NEC on November 21-22.
Freedom addresses the recommendations from the Approved Doc M 2015 (ADM) and Wheelchair Housing Design Guide 2018 (WHDG) and has been developed with Adam Thomas, expert in accessible kitchen design.
It will on display to the show’s visitors who are occupational therapists and managers who work alongside them.
Head of marketing at Symphony Group Robert Newton said: “Symphony is launching Freedom in conjunction with The Kitchen Bureau, Cardiff, at The Occupational Therapy (OT) Show this year.
“Both companies will be on hand to give advice and guidance on how to create a kitchen design that is right for everyone.”
Director at Adam Thomas Consultancy, Adam Thomas said: “Launching the Freedom brand at this year’s OT Show is perfect for us.
“Not only do we get to present it to the people who are best placed to utilise the kitchens and implement best practice, but we’re also running an on-going clinic at the event to review existing projects and advise OTs on how to improve their kitchen designs.”
Managing director of The Kitchen Bureau Kathy Annadale added: “Freedom means now having to strain or worry about using the kitchen you have.
“Freedom is having a kitchen that adapts and helps people regain their independence and improve quality of life.
“Freedom by Symphony will help OTs improve the quality of life in homes around the country.”
