Introducing Artifacts tapware… turning to the past for bathroom inspiration

Taking its cue from the world’s rapidly growing ‘love of vintage’, Kohler has introduced a range of bathroom tapware called Artifacts, referencing the form and ornamentation of the Edwardian period – and introduces new, deep, rich textures such as oil-rubbed and vibrant brushed bronze!

Kohler Artifacts Tapware Collection

Wishing to create a collection that is timeless and classic in its inspiration, the Kohler U.S. design studio turned to the past for inspiration, drawing on the overall aesthetic of turn-of-the-century designs reflecting the ingenuity of practical-minded craftsman who made do with the resources at hand.

Artifacts revives this pragmatic approach within the context a culture that embraces highly personalised design. The design team wanted each piece of the collection to be distinct in form and ornamental details, yet to feel part of a whole.

What they created is a standout range of tapware that features detailed turnings and finials, elegant spouts and and a unique ‘swing lever’ basin mixer handle design unlike any other on the market.

The Artifacts tapware range is available in a choice of three finishes – oil-rubbed bronze, vibrant brushed bronze and polished chrome.

Each piece in the collection is distinct in terms of form and ornamentation but, while the aesthetics are vintage, the range’s performance is full of innovation.

Basin taps are Five Star WELS rated, using less than six litres of water a minute; engineered ceramic discs resist deterioration and mineral build-up; and the polished chrome, oil-rubbed bronze and vibrant brushed bronze finishes feature the Kohler patented corrosion and tarnish-resistant surface.

The range comprises single and twin-handle basin sets, shower/bath mixers with and without diverter, two handle deck-mount bath set plus a wall mount bath spout – all in a choice of oil-rubbed bronze, vibrant brushed bronze and polished chrome.

 

Taking a Stance in bathroom design …

Kohler has recently released a SLIM version of its iconic Stance tapware collection.

Kohler Stance Slim Basin Mixer

The new Stance Slim Tall Basin Mixer – it’s streamlined good looks will complement any bathroom style.

A popular choice for those seeking bold design and contemporary architectural lines, the original version was favoured throughout Europe, USA and Australia by those seeking a statement piece for their bathroom. This new, slimmer version reflects current trends towards understated design that still showcases strong, modern design.

Stance Slim is primarily a cubic design with a simple, efficient top-mounted joy stick control. The under-surface of the spout is an extension of the main upright column, seemingly formed by the water flow that it contains and delivers.
