The National Kitchen & Bath Association and Kitchen+Bath Designer magazine recently presented the Masterclass Conference: Perspectives on Design, an internationally-themed education conference.

The conference, sponsored by kitchen and bath software maker Planit, challenged and inspired designers through a series of seminars led by world-renowned designers. It included two days of keynote presentations and roundtables where NKBA members learned how to advance their design skills from experts such as Paolo Pininfarina, Jamie Drake, and Steven J. Livingston.

Members also gained hands-on experience working with the designers in problem-solving workshops. The next Masterclass Conference is scheduled for March 3–4, 2005, in San Francisco. For more information, visit or call 800.843.6522.
