Methven, the global designer and manufacturer of premium showers and tapware, has announced the appointment of architect George Clarke as its first Brand Ambassador.

Television personality and architect George, has agreed a partnership with Methven after initially using one of its Satinjet showers while visiting family in New Zealand. He has since experienced the award-winning Aurajet Aio shower and been impressed with the New Zealand-based company’s dedication to design and innovation.

George is passionate about design and was particularly keen to learn more about Methven’s approach to new product development, use of materials and of course the water and energy saving benefits the products offer to consumers.

His first role as Brand Ambassador will be at the Sleep Hotel Design Event, at the London Business Design Centre, on Wednesday November 22nd where he will be on Methven’s stand (G34) all morning.

George said: “I’m really excited to be teaming up with Methven which is a fabulous brand and I’ve been more than impressed with the stunning products it brings to market. The business has stayed true to its New Zealand roots with a focus on the environment and on design and innovation – all of which makes them really stand out from the crowd. I’m really looking forward to meeting the team and working with them in the coming months.”

Martin Walker, CEO of Methven UK, said: “I’m delighted George shares our passion, he’s a perfect fit for our brand. At Methven we believe in delivering amazing experiences as well as stunning design and we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation. We wanted someone who supported our cause and is a passionate advocate for NZ design and innovation – and we have found that in George.”
