A ModernLife toilet approach to bathroom hygiene

The ModernLife multi-award winning toilet, produced by Kohler Co and recognised for its ‘discreet design and practical cleaning features’, has been released in the popular wall-faced configuration.

Kohler ModernLife Wall Faced Toilet Suite

Originally designed for public spaces, where understated design and exceptional hygiene are pre-requisites, Kohler’s ModernLife back-to-wall suite garnered two of the most prestigious international design awards – the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Design Award.

The key feature of this innovative toilet – now available in a wall-faced configuration – is its truly rimless bowl. The ground-breaking combination of the pan’s design and finish mean any liquid hitting the interior forms small beads of liquid that roll easily into the toilet bowl. The smooth, sleek interior means there are no ridges or channels in which germs or dirt can hide, while its dynamic flush flow ensures the bowl is rinsed thoroughly.

The timeless form of ModernLife’s design is the essence of simplicity with the slight overhang of the lid creating a seamless look. There is a choice of two comfortable, quiet-close seat designs – the low profile Slim and the sophisticated Elite model. The latter features a deodoriser, with a choice of fragrance packs, plus a battery operated LED night light.

Both seats feature a Vertical Quick Release hinge that enables the seat to be removed with just a gentle pull (when vertical) to enable fast and thorough cleaning.

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

In-wall cisterns are sold separately with a choice of flushplate shape – choose from Oval, Bevel, Lynk and Note.

Reach for the new generation compact toilet suite…

New generation toilets are ‘flush’ with style, shape and comfort together with higher levels of water efficiency and easy-clean features.

Kohler’s new Reach II back-to-wall toilet suite packs a lot of innovation into a compact design that shaves up to 70mm off the length (protrusion from the wall) of conventional models.

The new rimless Reach II Compact Back To Wall Toilet Suite

Designed for both new builds and renovations the Reach II’s 4 star WELS rating (4.5/3.5L) ensures it is well within new build codes while its 610mm projection from the wall makes it a preferred choice of back to wall toilet for more compact spaces.

Featuring contemporary flared straight skirt and clean lines, the Reach II has the highest hygiene credentials with the Kohler HygieneMax rimless pan technology delivering a robust, double wash-down with optimal coverage of the interior bowl.

There is a choice of two comfortable seat designs, the low profile Slim and the more seamless Wrap Over seat. Each seat is quiet close with vertical quick release operation – meaning the seat can be quickly detached with a ‘one-hand lift’ for fast and easy cleaning.

Take a seat on the latest design trend … we’re talking TOILETS!

French curve. Wrap. Slim. Elite. Are we talking dress shapes? Handbags? Well, toilet seats actually!

Kohler Veil Intelligent Toilet

Yes, there is a look. There is a shape. And there is a definite trend! Kohler Company, the global specialist in bathroom design, has released its latest take on the toilet seat styles that are trending in Australia today.

Shape – read aesthetics – is a key consideration, as is hygiene. Kohler’s latest offering places both of these demands at the top of its features list.

With models such as the Grande (in back to the wall and wall hung configurations) Kohler offers a choice of three toilet seat options – all of which fit the same toilet pan.

The Wrap, whereby the lid wraps over the seat, is a more conventional design, producing a seamless profile. The Slim is a very low profile seat and lid that is an inspired choice for the contemporary bathroom.

The third and most deluxe offering is the Elite – an identical profile to the Slim but with the added benefit of a concealed scent dispenser (activated when the user comes in contact with the seat) and a night light.

Kohler Elite Toilet Seat

The Elite seat comes with a fragrance trial pack. Just add AAA batteries to activate your motion sensing LED night light!

The comfort of the seat is a vital aspect of the seat design and Kohler opts for high quality, non-stain resin in a smooth, contoured shape that ensures a comfortable, ergonomic fit on posteriors of many sizes.

Veil is the brand’s flagship intelligent toilet – a self-cleaning bidet and toilet in one appliance – featuring the French curve heated seat with a gently dished shape to minimise the pressure points and create extra comfort. The seat is made from an antibacterial material to enhance hygiene levels while its deodorising carbon filter and LED night light provide extra convenience. Special mention should be made of the Veil’s balanced curves and sculpted form that inject a sense of beauty into any bathroom space.

Such is the importance of superior design in the humble toilet seat that ModernLife, Kohler’s most recent addition, has even won a prestigious international design award! Modern Life, the brand’s first truly rimless toilet, available in back to wall suite and wall faced configurations, received the Red Dot Design Award for discreet design and outstanding practical cleaning features.
Modern Life offers the choice of Slim or Elite seats for both pan configurations.

Toilet seats such as Kohler’s Grande, Reach, Modern Life and Parliament are quiet close with vertical quick release operation – the seat can be quickly detached with a ‘one-hand lift’ for fast and easy cleaning.

KOHLER ModernLife toilet suite 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 Australasian 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.

KOHLER's ModernLife Back To Wall Toilet Suite

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

Introducing the new Grande Rimless Toilet Suite

In a rare milestone in the history of the toilet, new engineering and design has produced a maximum hygiene/minimal-cleaning model that delivers real benefits and understated aesthetics.

Grande Rimless Back to Wall Suite

The new Grande Rimless Back to Wall Suite

Kohler’s new Grande Rimless Back to Wall Toilet Suite features a seamless smooth pan which has been produced through a custom process to deliver an industry leading straight skirted toilet with a flawless finish.

The Grande also features a rimless bowl with a smooth interior and ultra-efficient flush system – improvements that produce the most germ free, hygienic toilet ever and one that is far easier to clean!

The rim of traditional toilet bowls – originally designed to optimise the distribution of water needed to rinse the toilet interior – actually creates a safe haven for germs and bacteria and makes adequate cleaning quite tricky.

Grande Rimless Back to Wall Toilet Suite

Sleek, clean styling of the Grande Back To Wall Toilet Suite

The new rimless Grande, by Kohler, has no rim – just a very smooth interior that is rigorously cleaned by the toilet’s ultra-efficient flush system. Basically the flush propels the water, very powerfully, around the bowl but clever engineering and shaping ensures no splashback.

The compact, understated design of the Grande Back To Wall toilet suite means it will perform equally well in master bathrooms and ensuites and complement any interior design aesthetic. It projects just 650mm from the wall and is a mere 395mm wide.

Additional features include Quiet Close VQR (Vertical Quick Release) toilet seat – really easy removal for enhanced cleaning – and 4 star WELS rating (average flush of just 3.5 litres). It is suitable for both new builds as well as retrofit as it has back and side entry for water feed.
