KOHLER’s New Slim Trims gives wider choice

If there is one key trend for bathrooms in 2018 it would be CHOICE. While one person opts for sleek and white, another will crush on personality and patina. Global suppliers such as Kohler have seen the signs and are extending their ranges to ensure we can all stamp our style and character on our interiors.

Loure Slim Shower Trim

Just as Kohler was one of the forerunners in creating precious metal finishes to its tapware – rose gold, titanium and brushed nickel for example – it has also taken the lead in developing a choice of trims for bath and shower mixers.

With its introduction of new Slim Trims consumers can now choose between the traditional sized mixers to match their favourite tap and slimmer, sleeker versions. They also have the option of a shower mixer plate with or without diverter.

The new Cuff Slim Shower Trim – with and without diverter

The Slim Trims have been designed to match some of Kohler’s best- selling polished chrome tapware ranges – Purist, Loure, Aleo, Strayt, Toobi, Kumin and Cuff.

In most cases the width of the mixer plate, without diverter, has been reduced by at least 25 per cent – and in the case of the Purist and Cuff mixers these are now a neat 100mm diameter circle.

The aesthetic advantage of the Slim Trims is that the peripheral hardware no longer dominates – which allows the true heroes, such as the showerhead and surface finishes, to shine!

New ModernLife toilet by KOHLER wins international design award

Launched to great acclaim and garnering international accolades, Kohler’s ModernLife toilet suite has been recognised for its revolutionary approach to hygiene and ease of cleaning with the prestigious international Red Dot Design Award.

KOHLER's ModernLife Back To Wall Toilet Suite

The key feature of the ModernLife back to wall toilet is its truly rimless bowl – a first in the New Zealand market. In taking rimless technology to the next level, Kohler has introduced a beautifully engineered pan featuring a bevelled and chamfered edge. This bevelled edge is finished with Kohler’s patented CleanCoat™ technology.

The ground-breaking combination of the rim’s inward-sloping design and the finish of the edge means any liquid hitting this area will form small beads of liquid that will roll easily into the toilet bowl. In addition, the Vertical Quick Release seat means the seat can be removed with just a gentle pull (when vertical) making thorough cleaning both fast and easy.

It is these innovative features that create the new level of hygiene and easy cleaning that Kohler is introducing with the ModernLife collection.The smooth, sleek interior also means there are no ridges or channels in which germs or dirt can hide. And its 360˚ dynamic flush flow ensures the bowl is rinsed thoroughly.

In another first, Kohler has included an optional Elite Seat. This introduces new levels of comfort and convenience in the form of a subtle LED pinstripe light – to subtly light the seating area when dark, without creating too much light – and a fragrance sachet to gently perfume the air. Both are operated by two AAA, easily replaceable batteries. The ultra-streamlined Elite Seat has an easy fit invisible hinge (easy to install and quick to release for thorough cleaning) plus quiet close seat and lid.

The timeless form of ModernLife’s design is the essence of simplicity with the slight overhang of the lid creating a seamless look.

The ModernLife Back to Wall Toilet suite also features optimal water-saving technology with a mere 4.5/3L water consumption (4 star WELS rating).

The ModernLife toilet suite – with the option of the Elite Seat – is complemented by the ModernLife vessel basins (with and without tap hole) that emulate the simplicity of form and sleek profile of the toilet.

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.
