While guests were wowed by the historical setting, the real hero of each event was undeniably Kohler’s Real Rain Experience!
Recognised as one of the first grand expressions of Milanese Design the grounds and interiors of the Museo were the perfect setting for the stunning installations of Kohler’s new Real Rain Showering technology together with its latest basin innovation – the Shagreen (stingray hide) Artist Editions basins.
Kohler’s Real Rain showering panel perfectly replicates the sight, sound and feel of real raindrops – and a large display of working models was ceiling-mounted in the Museo’s Loggia. The sight and sound of the Real Rain free fall of water was truly enhanced by the beautiful outdoor space and festive lighting of the Museo.
Inside, the Museo’s Grand Salon was the stunning location for a wall-mounted display of the Shagreen basins. Rising from a vertical green garden, designed by Milan-based landscape architect Derek Castiglioni, the textured appearance of the basins’ pebbled leather finish in Ebony Pearl and Oyster Pearl blurred the beauty of sea life with that of manmade artistry.
Designers, architects and journalists from around the world attended the events, including Australia’s own James Treble, interior designer,
television presenter and journalist.
