Design & Form appoints new director
British bath manufacturer Design & Form has announced the appointment of Jason Pontin to its board as a non-executive director. Experienced in internet marketing and working with customer groups worldwide, he will be supporting both Design & Form and its luxury retail brand, Cabuchon Bathforms.
Jason gained much of his experience in the United States. In 2004, he joined M.I.T. Technology Review, the world's oldest technology publication, as publisher and editor-in-chief.
Two years later, he became its chief executive officer. Prior to joining the magazine, he was the editor of Red Herring magazine. He has written for The New York Times, The Economist, Wired and various international publications. He is also chair of the M.I.T. Enterprise Forum.
Born in London and raised in California, he is a graduate of Oxford University and has served on a number of boards including The Children's Tumor Foundation.
Design & Form is a leading British manufacturer of bespoke, hand-crafted baths. Established in 1983, it makes all its products in the UK and exports throughout the world. Its Cabuchon range is aimed at the retail market and includes free-standing and built-in baths, together with uniquely tailored hydrotherapy systems.
For 25 years, Cabuchon has also pioneered the development of the modern deep soaking tub, introducing the UK's first space-saving ofuro-style bath back in 1991. Today, its market-leading deep soaking range is sold to clients worldwide, including customers from Japan.
