SAN FRANCISCO, November 9, 2022 — Zephyr, the company that has transformed the kitchen through design, discovery, and customer care, hosted its seventh annual Zephyr Designer Retreat October 18th – 21st, 2022 in San Francisco and Napa. The retreat attracted leading designers and influencers from across the US to learn about Zephyr while experiencing the best design, food, wellness, and wine.
The retreat kicked off at the Zephyr Design & Experience Center: a 7,000-square-foot showroom in the heart of San Francisco’s Design District that features the entire collection of Zephyr range hoods and Presrv™ Wine & Beverage Coolers. The designers received a company and product overview by Zephyr VP of Marketing Sarah Wahl and VP of Product Jeremy Snider. Zephyr design partner Fu-Tung Cheng presented on his history, design philosophy, and recent projects. Zephyr also welcomed Architectural Digest’s global editorial director and US editor in chief, Amy Astley for a visit with the designers and product tour.
Zephyr hosted the designers at the 1 Hotel San Francisco — the city’s newest, most thoughtfully designed, eco-friendly hotel — and visited SF restaurants such as Tosca Café and Boulettes Larder. The retreat ended in Napa with the Bountiful Table wine and food journey at Joseph Phelps Vineyards and a curated wellness experience at Stanly Ranch resort.
