Kohler Uses Artisan Techniques to Create New Lavatories
Kohler Co., a global leader in kitchen and bath design and technology, continues to build on its selection of distinctive lavatories by introducing two new models at the 2010 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. These new lavatories exhibit a craftsman’s skill in the use of glass and bronze, resulting in fully functional and visually stunning works of art.
As the latest additions to KOHLER Nature’s Chemistry and Artist Editions collections, each of these bathroom sink styles offers its own distinct look, while embracing the raw, elemental qualities of natural materials, and beautifully capturing the exquisite interplay of light and water.
Kallos Glass Lavatory
The new Kallos spun glass lavatory is Kohler’s first in an undercounter style, creating a distinctive architectural pattern reminiscent of fine crystal. The lavatory’s design creates a stunning visual depth, while appropriately concealing the view of toiletries stored inside the vanity. Being available in a standard 14-inch diameter makes this lavatory ideal for new construction and remodeling projects.
Katagami Metal Lavatory
Cast in bronze and finished to a warm, dark patina, the Katagami wading pool lavatory highlights the movement of water. The generous 20-by-16 1/2-inch wading pool basin includes a distinctive, elevated drain cover featuring a subtle floral motif. The shallow texture from the floral pattern creates unique water patterns, and the drain cover’s elevation over the drain allows water to visually disappear into the sink. The lavatory’s cast bronze composition is a living finish that will patina over time, deepening the rich color.
