Reflections of the Extraordinary…
The rich selection of colours and textures in our PVD range provides a deep offering of fully coordinated bathroom elements. The result is a designer’s dream: an extraordinary range of colours that can transform tapware into bathroom stars.
Purist Tall Basin Mixers in brushed finishes
Innovation begins from within…
Vibrant® PVD Finishes are produced using state- of-the-art Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) technology to achieve these elegant finishes. Fundamentally PVD is a vapourisng coating technique involving the transfer of material at an atomic level.
During this process, vapourised chemicals condense on the substrate forming a thin film resulting in a colour finish.
Every one of our finishes exceeds the industry durability standards two times over. Adding a nickel undercoating enhances the strength and color integrity and gives KOHLER faucets a rich lustre that resists scratching, tarnishing and corrosion.

Referencing vintage hand pumps and precious metals PURIST, from global tapware specialist Kohler, is the essence of simplicity and authenticity. PVD Brushed Bronze, Rose Gold, Polished Gold and Brushed Nickel are the beautiful finishes set to steal the limelight in a bathroom or powder room near you!
Hero of the range is the single lever basin mixer in both standard and tall – a single column topped with a slender cylindrical lever it is the epitome of intuitive functionality. Simply lift and turn the lever to adjust flow and temperature.
The design taps into our ever-growing love for unadorned simplicity and effortless use, without the obsessive need to over-design and innovate.
Other models within the tapware range, offering choice in terms of handle design (while maintaining the same mantra of purism and integrity), are the three-piece basin mixer sets with lever handles plus a wall-mounted option.
All basin taps are five star WELS rated using less than 6 litres of water a minute. There are also bath spouts and bath/shower mixers with and without diverter.
All of the Kohler tapware ‘precious’ metal finishes – Brushed Bronze, Polished Gold, Rose Gold and Brushed Nickel – are achieved by virtue of PVD technology (Physical Vapour Deposition). This is a customised finish system that vaporises the finish and molecularly bonds it to the chrome surface. This produces a finish that is both tarnish and corrosion resistant – in fact all Kohler finishes twice exceed the industry standard and carry a 15-year warranty.
About the PVD process
The Kohler patented Physical Vapour Deposition process was introduced to allow Kohler to add variety to their line of finishes, as well as improve the durability of those finishes. PVD results in a mechanically strong finish that is ceramic in nature, and resists the tarnishing, scratching and corrosion that can occur over time from repetitive use in the bathroom.
PVD is an environmentally friendly process as it minimises the volume of water required and creates zero waste as harmful chemicals are not used.
And while the Purist collection offers a complete set of tapware for the bathroom – basin, shower and bath – there will also be matching accessories available shortly which will include towel bars and ring, soap dish, tumbler and holder, robe hook and toilet tissue holder. Basin accessories including wastes and bottle traps in PVD will also be available to complement this stunning range of tapware.
Conveying strength and style with an attitude, the new KOHLER® Vibrant Titanium finish is a stunning addition to any modern
With deeper, richer tones than polished chrome it retains the shine and reflection of chrome while providing the perfect foil for other favourite finishes for the bathing space such as timber, stone and ceramics.

Typical of the look is the bathroom pictured, showing Kohler’s new- release Composed Titanium tapware teamed with pared-back stone benchtop, timeless penny round ceramic wall tiles and convincingly realistic timber ceramic tiles. The result is timeless, covetable style in the bathroom!
This beachside home’s bathroom features the Composed tapware in new Titanium finish.
Composed is Kohler’s award-winning basin and showering tapware in the new Titanium PVD finish (International Red Dot Design Award). PVD technology – Physical Vapour Deposition – enables luxury metal finishes to be applied to solid brass tapware by vapourising the finish and then molecularly bonding it to the chrome surface. The result is a tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant finish that exceeds industry standards and carries a 15-year warranty.
The Composed basin mixer range in Titanium PVD
Other fittings in the bathroom include the Kohler Parliament benchtop basin and the Rain Duet Shower column, with Katalyst technology that delivers a luxurious and drenching rainshower experience while using less than 9 litres of water a minute. Katalyst technology is a revolutionary air induction system that injects 2.2 litres of air into every 9.4 litres of water, creating larger, fuller water droplets, which retain heat for longer, creating a full, enveloping shower experience.
The Parliament countertop basin’s square lines pair perfectly with the Composed tapware design aesthetic.
A space-saving essential for compact spaces, is Kohler’s Panache wall-faced toilet suite. By concealing the cistern within the wall space the perception of spaciousness can be achieved.
The Panache Wall Faced Toilet Suite is a space-saving winner in both form and function.
The Panache Wall Faced Toilet comes with bevel or oval chrome flushplate options.
To complete the look, and maintain the design aesthetic, Kohler’s Singulier bathroom accessories have been used throughout.
