Kohler launches ME-inspired collection
Dubai, September 14, 2011
Kohler, a leading manufacturer of kitchen and bath products, has launched two new lavatory patterns inspired by Middle Eastern designs.
The new designs Persia and Nepal evoke images of caravans making their way along the legendary Silk Road trading route, a statement said.
Available in gold and platinum on Kohler’s Caxton undercounter Lavatory and Conical Bell Vessel, the Caravan designs are expected to appeal to the region’s regal tastes, and give the products a rich, adorned style, it added.
“Kohler has built a reputation as a pioneer in the creation of advanced bathroom technology and sophisticated designs that resonate well with our Middle Eastern customers,” said Mohamed Nada, regional marketing manager at Kohler.
“Historically, the Middle East has a proud culture and unmistakable identity that has remained at the core of regional design to this day. The new Caravan patterns stay true to that philosophy by evoking the imagery of the region’s ancestral silk trading pioneers, and are sure to appeal to the sophisticated tastes for modern products inspired by regional design.”
With geometric patterns juxtaposed with sweeping curves, the Persia pattern has a distinct look influenced by Middle Eastern architecture and Moorish style, he added.
Gold and white - traditionally favoured in Persian design - has been applied to Kohler’s Persia pattern, where the white background enhances the gilded line work, allowing the sink to match gracefully with other bathroom fixtures and accessories.
With soothing colours and intricate design, the Nepal pattern creates a calm artistic atmosphere, and is the product of unique craftsmanship inspired by the Henna ceremonies and textile techniques of Eastern India. The pattern is composed of delicate details and subtle hues rendered on a translucent blue base. – TradeArabia News Service
