Today I’m back with my second post in collaboration with Kohler, to share some more details about the new KOHLER Composed Bathroom Faucet. In case you missed the first post, I attended an event with the brand recently to celebrate the launch of their Composed Collection and learn more about the product line. It was cool to see the whole faucet range in person and the event itself was really well put-together and lovely (all of the cocktail waiters appeared to be male models, so that certainly didn’t hurt). I ran into my friend and fellow blogger Sarah Sarna, which was a nice surprise, and she introduced me to her friend, interior designer Harry Heissmann, whose work I had just seen at this year’s Kips Bay Show House. It was great to meet him after seeing his work (and he was kind of hilarious too).
One noteworthy thing I learned at the event about the Composed Faucet Collection is that it comes in varying iterations, allowing it to suit different needs and fit seamlessly into a variety of settings. The faucet varies in handle options, height, and finish.
There are two single handle options, one of which you can see above. At the event, Mark Bickerstaffe (Kohler’s Head of New Product Development) told me about how the single-lever options were made to appeal to the lover of design and architecture, as well as just anyone who wants a really clean, modern look. As an alternative, they made double lever designs for those who would want a more straightforward or classic design.
Above you can see the classic lever option.
Here, you can see the cross-handle version – a bit more traditional and classic as far as handle options go.
Here you can see the second version of the two single handle options. The designers took care to make the diameter of this handle perfectly match the diameter of the faucet itself.
You can also see how tall this version of the faucet is, which brings me to the next variation – Kohler made the faucet in three different heights. The shortest is perfect for New York City bathrooms, where low mounted medicine cabinets can necessitate a faucet of petite stature to fit underneath. And of course, the other variation is the two finish options, Polished Chrome and Vibrant Titanium, which you can see on the Kohler site.
Kohler created the Composed product line in such a way that with all of the different variations, it really is versatile enough to work in different contexts, such as residences, commercial spaces, and hotels. The handles were also made to be within ADA regulations, meaning minimal force is needed to operate them. The level of detail in the design is really amazing. I learned at the event that they made the top part of the faucet on a two degree slope upward, because if it were perfectly straight, our eye would perceive it as downward-sloping.
The Kohler Composed Bathroom faucet is modern and eye-catching, but also simple, clean, and classic. Hearing about all of the little details that went into the design, from the designers themselves, truly gave me a much deeper appreciation for the piece – an everyday object that the Kohler team made into a modern classic.
