SIXPENNY X @AGUYNAMEDPATRICK - NYC

Sixpenny is an e-commerce home furnishings brand that launched in 2017, using digital media and social platforms to garner triple quarter over quarter growth. Through a strategic influencer outreach program, HHPR worked with Sixpenny and Patrick Janelle of @aguynamedpatrick to outfit his multi-disciplinary office in SoHo NYC. The goal: create an inspiring environment for Patrick and his team, one that combines the functional needs of a busy workplace with the charm and comfort of a home office. The end result: the coolest and comfiest office we have ever seen!

NO TASTE FOR BAD TASTE x SAKS FIFTH AVENUE - Nyc

In the summer of 2018, HHPR facilitated a partnership between Saks 5th Avenue and Le French Design’s No Taste For Bad Taste global traveling exhibit. The exhibit is a joint project of l’Institut Francais and VIA featuring iconic 21st-century French furnishings and art curated by eminent figures from the worlds of design, fashion, and architecture. For two weeks, viewers of the capsule exhibit at Saks were able to experience the cultural heritage and creativity that is French ‘art de vivre’ throughout colorful displays coupled with French fashion from Givenchy, Céline, Chloé, and Saint Laurent.

 
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!

GAGGENAU RESTAURANT 1683 - LOS ANGELES

Gaggenau, the world’s most elite-luxury kitchen appliance brand, partnered with Three-Michelin-Starred Chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park for its award-winning series of epicurean experiences, Restaurant 1683. The highly anticipated pop-up series debuted in New York City in 2016 and took downtown Los Angeles by storm in 2018. In an age where garnering coverage of an invite-only event can be challenging, HHPR created public buzz for the brand via strategic partnerships, press tours and social media activation all while keeping the guest list private to only top taste-makers, celebrities and industry VIPs.

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. Katharina & her team have not only become my trusted allies in the business of design, they have become critical partners in my success.
