For KOHLER, the bathroom and kitchen manufacturer, innovation and excellence are at the heart of all that the brand creates. Their presence at Design Joburg, included the KOHLER Theatre, a base for talks by industry leaders, and their exhibition stand, aimed at showcasing the very latest that the brand has to offer. Hinging on the notion of experiential luxury, KOHLER’s brand-new additions to the line boasts intuitive design and cutting-edge technology.
The new Verdera smart mirror is an intelligent mirror with lighting and Amazon Alexa built in. This groundbreaking mirror can provide you with the time, a weather update, your favourite music and it can adjust the amount of light emitted all by voice command. The smart mirror can communicate with other KOHLER Konnect products such as the DTV+ shower, enabling you to start running your shower to preset preferences without touching anything.
The DTV+ shower is the brand’s most advanced digital showering system yet. With an integrated touch screen that allows users to customise their shower temperature, length and experience. With the DTV+, manual control is a thing of the past.
The Ceric bath, with its clean-lined minimalism and gentle curvature, will be making an appearance too. Cast in one solid piece from Lithocast®, a gloss cast resin, the bath is lightweight and cleans with ease.
Streamlined and sleek, the new Eir toilet is another revolutionary new release from KOHLER. This intelligent toilet boasts automatic opening, flushing and closing, night light mode, seat warming, bowl sanitising and variable bidet options that use purified water.
With its asymmetric, organic form and etched detailing in honed marble, the new Kensho Trough Vessel is a Japanese and Italian inspired basin featuring sashiko kimono motifs. This basin will be featured alongside the Kensho Round Vessel (also a new release), which boasts the same artistic features but in pared-back rounded form.
Both of these basins will be paired with KOHLER’s Components taps, which offer consumers the freedom of individuality with different designs that can be combined to suit individual tastes. The new brushed bronze Composed mixer will also feature on the stand, speaking to devotees of minimalism with its extra tall tower faucet and stripped back form.
With more than a century in the seat, KOHLER has become an industry leader. Followed by architects, designers and building industry experts, the brand did not disappoint visitors at Design Joburg.
