CELEBRATING ITS 145TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR, KOHLER HAS MADE BOLD STRIDES IN THE DESIGN AND INNOVATION OF ITS KITCHEN AND BATHROOM PRODUCTS
The first bathtub produced by Kohler was originally a simple horse trough—by coating it with enamel, its enterprising founder John Michael Kohler turned the farming implement into a new addition for the home. Founded in 1873, the Wisconsin-based company is now a global kitchen and bathroom group, and has grown its portfolio to include luxury resorts and spas; it has also acquired a dozen firms across specialities including showering systems, cabinetry and decorative fixtures. In Singapore, the Kohler Experience Centre (KEC) offers an interactive experience with bathroom fittings that combine elegant design with smart features and the latest technological advances. Here’s a look at some of the key products from its eponymous brand Kohler:
SENSE OF STYLE
The embodiment of streamlined design and innovation, the Sensis intelligent toilet features a movement-detecting sensor and automated functions for improved hygiene and effortless cleaning. Take for instance, the toilet built-in deodoriser which is immediately activated after use, while its E-water and UV light functions can be activated with an easy one-click button to clean the toilet bowl and wand. The metallic trimming adds to its stylish appeal, making the Sensis a perfect complement for modern interiors.
SUM OF ITS PARTS
The Components collection features interchangeable elements—mix and match the spout and handle to create a unique configuration for your bathroom. Available in four finishes including matte black and polished chrome, choose from three options for each faucet: the angular Row, the wavy Ribbon, or the timeless cylindrical style of the Tube. Then pair it with a choice of three handles: the sleek Rocker, the industrial-inspired Oyl or the modern Lever. High-quality engineering ensures that the faucets are made to last, while producing precise and smooth controls for water flow and temperature; a hidden aerator also contributes to its organic water flow.
