Inspired by modern architecture and the recipient of two of the most prestigious international design awards, Kohler’s Torsion shower doors provide a sleek, streamlined solution for showering spaces.

Melding functionality with structural integrity and sophisticated design, the Kohler Torsion collection has received both the Red Dot international design award and the iF Product Design award in recognition of its fusing of art and engineering that is both beautiful and durable.
The doors, with anodised aluminium frames and 8mm toughened safety glass coated with Kohler’s premium Cleancoat™, feature hidden door mechanisms (for easy cleaning and ultra-sleek lines) and a choice of InSwing™, Hinged, Sliding and Alcove installation options.

Kohler Clarity water filtration system brings safe water to those in need…

Kohler Clarity water filtration system brings safe water to those in need…

According to UNICEF, in 2015, 1.8 billion people were using unsafe drinking water.

What the world needs is a solution to improve the water quality and consequently the lives that are affected by it. Kohler Associates worked together to figure out how to help build better lives and how to reduce the struggle to find clean water. The project resulted in the development of a ceramic water filtration system called Kohler Clarity.

Kohler Clarity

Designed by a Kohler team in the UK, engineered by a Kohler team in India and produced in a Kohler factory in the US, this truly trans-global project created a water filter that meets exceptionally high standards of quality and design. The filtration system, for example, is highly effective yet incredibly simple to use and maintain.

Kohler Clarity is an innovative ceramic water filtration system designed to offer 40 litres of safe water per day without using electricity. Each Kohler Clarity filters out more than 99% of bacteria and protozoa, providing up to 40 litres of safe water each day – enough clean drinking water for a family of four. Given the incidence of water-borne illnesses can be reduced by 45 per cent through safe drinking water – and safe storage – the Kohler Clarity is a life-changing development.

Kohler Clarity Filter Cartridge

The design of the Kohler Clarity meets World Health Organisation water quality standards. The appliance filters up to two litres of water an hour and has a total capacity of 23 litres – 11 litres of dirty water and 12 litres of clean water with safe storage.

Each filter can clean up to 5000 litres of water – and replacement filters are very low cost and readily available.

Even the packaging has been designed to fit more product into a standard box and therefore significantly reduce transport costs.

The Kohler Clarity has already helped countless numbers of people in developing countries.

Avid – a graceful new tapware design from Kohler

A simple, graceful bathing space – a retreat from the modern world – is at the heart of a new tapware design that has won the prestigious international Red Dot Design Award (2015).

Avid by Kohler

The graceful Avid tap – winner of the International Red Dot Design Award.

Avid, by Kohler, delivers sensuous simplicity to the everyday bathroom tap – and transforms it into a purposeful exercise in purity of form. The Avid tap is an inspired concept. Reminiscent of liquid metal its gentle, fluid form rises from the benchtop and is stretched to a slender, tapered spout. The lever control is an extension of the body of the tap – no harsh edges, sharp angles or unnecessary embellishment.

Avid by Kohler

The Avid basin mixer was created by the US design team as an elegant, modern and somewhat feminine form.

The collection of Avid tapware includes Standard, Tall and Super Tall basin mixers as well as a three-piece widespread model, a wall mount basin mixer and shower mixers. The basin tapware has a 5 star WELS rating, using six litres of water a minute.

Avid tapware by Kohler

The Avid basin mixer line-up: Standard, Tall and Super Tall.

Kohler has a reputation for durability and longevity – as with all other tapware its Avid model is finished in a corrosion and tarnish-resistant polished chrome and superior ceramic disc technology.

The basin mixers also feature an integrated aerator with angle adjustment to ensure optimum performance for all installations.

A full range of matching accessories has also been released.

 

Introducing the new Grande Rimless Toilet Suite

In a rare milestone in the history of the toilet, new engineering and design has produced a maximum hygiene/minimal-cleaning model that delivers real benefits and understated aesthetics.

Grande Rimless Back to Wall Suite

The new Grande Rimless Back to Wall Suite

Kohler’s new Grande Rimless Back to Wall Toilet Suite features a seamless smooth pan which has been produced through a custom process to deliver an industry leading straight skirted toilet with a flawless finish.

The Grande also features a rimless bowl with a smooth interior and ultra-efficient flush system – improvements that produce the most germ free, hygienic toilet ever and one that is far easier to clean!

The rim of traditional toilet bowls – originally designed to optimise the distribution of water needed to rinse the toilet interior – actually creates a safe haven for germs and bacteria and makes adequate cleaning quite tricky.

Grande Rimless Back to Wall Toilet Suite

Sleek, clean styling of the Grande Back To Wall Toilet Suite

The new rimless Grande, by Kohler, has no rim – just a very smooth interior that is rigorously cleaned by the toilet’s ultra-efficient flush system. Basically the flush propels the water, very powerfully, around the bowl but clever engineering and shaping ensures no splashback.

The compact, understated design of the Grande Back To Wall toilet suite means it will perform equally well in master bathrooms and ensuites and complement any interior design aesthetic. It projects just 650mm from the wall and is a mere 395mm wide.

Additional features include Quiet Close VQR (Vertical Quick Release) toilet seat – really easy removal for enhanced cleaning – and 4 star WELS rating (average flush of just 3.5 litres). It is suitable for both new builds as well as retrofit as it has back and side entry for water feed.
