KOHLER, Wis. – July 12, 2016 – Known for innovation and exceptional design, Kohler is launching both a modern faucet collection as well as a striking faucet finish. The Composed faucet collection by Kohler is a design unencumbered by nonessential flourishes.
“We set out looking at the opportunity to have a beautifully simple product. Something really refined and truly a masterpiece of design,” states Mark Bickerstaffe, director of New Product Development. “What I think we achieved is something that has brightness, purity and purpose. The name -Composed- in itself is exactly right for this product. It’s all about a composition of simple beautiful geometric forms.”
The classic, clean look of Composed embodies simplicity with quiet confidence, and the rich, deep tone of the Titanium finish adds an element of allure to the collection. Intended to delight in detail whatever its role within the interior, this collection is part of Kohler’s commitment to growing its global contemporary offering.
The Composed faucet collection is available with a single handle, dual lever handles and dual cross handles. The single handle designs favour a minimalist aesthetic for a timeless beauty with a surprisingly delicate touch. Its elements were repeatedly refined and reduced to achieve poise and purpose from the most compact form. A side-mounted control was introduced to maintain the visual balance while providing ease of water flow and temperature adjustment. Widespread models carry more conventional handles, but have the same disciplined attention to detail.
“Composed is the epitome of the absence of design – the exclusion of any extraneous influence or detail in order to embody purity,” says Bickerstaffe.
The Composed collection includes a complete line of faucets, showering trim and accessories designed with the intent of working seamlessly with the flux of interior expression in modern bathroom architecture. Composed is available in two finishes: Polished Chrome and Kohler’s new Vibrant Titanium.
Vibrant Titanium Faucet Finish
Conveying strength and style with attitude, the Kohler Vibrant Titanium finish is a stunning addition to any modern interior. Moodier and deeper in tone than polished nickel or chrome, it complements dark spaces as well as bright backdrops. Its nickel undercoating enhances the strength and integrity of the colour, while the durable PVD, Physical Vapor Deposition, results in a mechanically strong finish that resists tarnishing, scratching and corrosion. Like all Kohler finishes, Vibrant Titanium exceeds industry durability standards by more than two times.
“The smoky tones of titanium add finesse to your vision of the bathroom,” says Bickerstaffe. “Whether you’re seeking brooding bathroom noir, urban stealth or a darkly glamorous boudoir the soft grey tone makes your faucet an understated icon in the interior.”
