Avid: The Sensuous Side of Simple

Evolving from a minimalist design ethos, the Avid faucet collection marries the art of simplicity with dynamic sensibility. Slender arcs, smooth planes and arresting angles bring emotional connection and sensitivity to minimalism without slipping into embellishment or cliché. Each element is an essential part of the whole. Avid brings clarity and comfort to modern interiors. Its purposeful design has an inviting and somewhat feminine form that pairs painstaking simplicity with sensory comfort. A faucet, accessory, showering and bathing collection, Avid delivers design flexibility and complements contemporary living spaces.

Composed: A harmonious balance of material and form

The Composed™ faucet collection by Kohler is designed for connoisseurs of modern art and architecture. Stripped of non-essential flourishes, Composed embodies simplicity. Clean, classic and quietly confident, it exemplifies refinement among KOHLER® products. Timeless and deliberate, the composed faucet is a nod to historic modernism and the design philosophy of Rowena Reed Kostellow, a professor at Brooklyn's famed Pratt Institute between 1939 and 1968. Kostellow showed her students how to transform basic shapes into visual poems that elicited an emotional response. The Composed faucet embodies Kostellow's theories in its spare and beautifully understated design.

Beitou: The nature of tranquility

The Beitou™ faucet collection from Kohler strikes a balance between architectural forms and the stunning displays of nature. The result is a peaceful interplay of invention and appeal that speaks to quiet moments of sanctuary. The calming movement of water lies at the heart of the Beitou™ faucet. The effortless flow of the design mimics the natural cascade of the water over the length of the spout and into the sink. Seen in this light, the faucet becomes a stage for water delivery whose shape and sound resembles a serene river.

Loure Extension: Water clad in metal

Geometric composition in interior architecture lies behind the design intent of Loure. Its form is linear, planar and almost two dimensional. Water is clad in metal that is seemingly laser-cut and formed from a single sheet. Its width is defined by the intended function; the water stream it provides is an extension of the spout itself. Every piece in the range refers back to this, to provide regimented coordination across the entire bathroom.

DTV+: When you take a shower, where does your shower take you?

Kohler brings water, sound, steam and light together like no one else for the most advanced showering system - The DTV+™ digital showering system. It is a digital thermostatic valve (DTV) system that controls four elements to give you a true multi-sensory showering experience. Every element of your showering experience is completely customizable to your needs and controlled by the touch-screen interface. Giving you a one of its kind heavenly experience, DTV+ stands apart like none other.
