Azimut Yachts x Design Pavilion, NYCxDesign 2019

For Azimut Yachts 50th Anniversary, Azimut Benetti Group wanted to create a disruptive display to celebrate their landmark year in one of their biggest markets, the U.S. HHPR was asked to strategize the best placement and determined Design Pavilion in celebration of NYCxDesign, was the right partner for Azimut Benetti Group, creating a collaboration that would amplify the company’s pillars: innovation, disruption, and award-winning design. Azimut Benetti Group was able to work with New York City and Times Square Alliance to host a 60-foot yacht in Times Square, the largest boat the Plaza has ever held (word check)? The installation garnered over 240 million impressions world-wide and gained even more exposure through social media. In addition, HHPR brilliantly connected Azimut Benetti Group with Design Pavilion to build programming around the installation, such as a talk about sustainability on the water. HHPR also produced and secured participants for the tentpole DesignTalk, a conversation about Art & Design in Luxury Lifestyle, with industry leaders from Bonetti/Kozerski, Achille Salvagni, Friedman Benda, Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery and moderated by New York Magazine’s Wendy Goodman.

Dedar x T Magazine, Milan Design Week Celebration

In April 2019, Italian family-run textile house Dedar Milano and top-tier design publication T Magazine collaborated for T's renowned annual party at the Villa Necchi Campiglio during Milan Design Week. In December of 2018, HHPR brokered the connection between T Magazine and Dedar by coordinating Dedar’s Holiday Gift - custom and unique Dedar notebooks. What began as small gifts, with HHPR’s help and negotiation, became a broader partnership that was mutually beneficial for each party. Stars like Olafur Eliasson, Jonathan Anderson, and Raf Simons celebrated in the company of Dedar's Blazer, Antibes, and Iris fabrics which hung above the hors d’oeurves in a unique exhibition of design. Dedar’s presence at this spectacular annual event led to considerable in-person visibility and high-level exposure in the design world and beyond.

Having chosen to have Katharina take care of all of my PR has been most propitious, she and her office have always been most proactive, always responsive and always present. Katharina has become a great friend and an incredible support, her ideas have proven to be very beneficial on all levels! Katharina, contrary to most in her profession, is elegant, kind and respectful! I am, and will always be very grateful to Aamir Khandwala for having introduced Katharina to me. I wish her many many years of continued successes!

My relationship with Katharina Plath and her agency has provided me with timely and relevant press opportunities, as well as some of my most important business relationships. Head & Hand Pool of Brands not only works at the forefront of publicity and media relations, but also, and often more importantly, creatively making connections and expanding the potential of all of their clients.
