“It’s personal. We are committed to our clients on an emotional level.”
Born in Cape Town, Colin completed his B.Comm degree at UCT and qualified as a Chartered Accountant, working for Ernst & Young in Cape Town and then in the UK. In 2000, after 5 years as a senior finance manager for Canada Life Assurance Company in London, he embarked on a spectacular international operatic singing career, becoming only the third South African tenor in history to achieve the “Grand Slam” in opera – to have sung in all of the 5 major opera houses in the world. Now, after 20 years abroad, Colin has returned to South Africa to merge his financial and creative skills to bring the finest brands in the world to Africa with Domum.
“A space evokes an emotion. It is more than the sum of its parts. Our purpose is to use design to make you feel something.”
Originally from Barcelona, Ramón has 25 years’ of experience in designing bulthaup kitchens around the world and his enthusiasm and passion for bulthaup has only grown over time. For Ramón it’s been very exciting in South Africa where he’s been designing open, magnificent kitchens that are so in tune with the lifestyle. While design in London or Europe tends to be much more constrained by space, here there is the possibility to create absolutely spectacular kitchens on a grand scale. Ramón is excited and inspired to also now bring Rimadesio, Dinesen and Carl Hansen and Søn’s incredible products to his clients and to the African Continent with Domum.
“Our brands are like tools for an artist. They give our designers the freedom to create something unique and go beyond the basic functional aspects of design.”
Born and raised in the UK, Gurmat’s passion for design was nurtured and mentored at the Winchester School of Art, and The Nottingham Trent University, where he studied for his BA (Hons) in Furniture & Product Design.
Engaged in the high-end design sector since 2000, Gurmat joined bulthaup, Mayfair in London during 2008. He has worked with prestigious brands, and with many influential architects and firms including Sir Norman Foster, Candy & Candy, Kelly Hoppen and Grimshaw & Partners.
As the Director of the Cape Town showroom and its creative team, he played a key role in the design and build of Domum’s stunning new showroom at the V&A Waterfront. “I believe we have created a space which is truly inspirational and aligned to our core design values, its intention is to facilitate every individual client’s vision to make their dream home a reality and uniquely their own”
“Domum is about a lifestyle, a desire for perfection, and a focus on quality and functionality. The home is absolutely personal. It must reflect you!”
It was at bulthaup in London that Lisl first found her love for kitchen design. After several years designing kitchens in London, Lisl returned to South Africa. With over 11 years of design experience, she has the ability to guide and support her clients throughout their kitchen journey, ensuring that she achieves a design that exceeds their expectations on every possible level. When it comes to your home, Lisl believes that it should reflect your personality, your lifestyle and how you use the space every day. At Domum, Lisl brings her passion for Innovation to every project, whilst creating a classic look that will remain current for years to come.
“As an architect, I appreciate the precision, the craftsmanship and quality that our portfolio of products delivers, while my design side revels in the flexibility I have to create spectacular kitchens and living spaces that are true showpieces.”
A Londoner by birth, Veena worked as an architect before joining the bulthaup family. She was drawn in by bulthaup’s unwavering passion to combine seamless detailing of the very highest quality with a real-world practicality. Veena believes in the cliché that the kitchen is the heart of the home (although she likes to add that it is probably also its stomach.) But it’s this ethos that drives her to create stunning spaces for family gatherings, large-scale entertaining or anything in between at Domum. Every home should reflect the unique needs and personality of each client and, with the Domum range of iconic products, Veena has the flexibility to create a bespoke design for each client.
“The perfect space is created by finding that unique balance between functionality, style and originality. You are an individual and your home should reflect that”
Michelle was born and raised in Johannesburg. She began her career by attending Inscape Design College where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Enjoying the more technical side of her studies, she realized that the kitchen was at the heart of all great interiors and was where her passion lay. Before joining Domum, Michelle accumulated a wealth of experience with local kitchen companies. She has a keen eye for detail and always strives for perfection. Domum’s meticulous precision and attention to detail above and beyond its stunning designs were a natural fit for Michelle and her passion for creating exquisite, unique kitchens and interiors.
“I have an enthusiasm for good design and strive to understand the client’s own vision, creating a space which is practical, beautiful and timeless. To me it’s about being ahead of the market, without compromising the quality of the finished product.”
