The modern Statement shower collection from global brand Kohler brings a range of unique shapes and various sizes to the shower, breathing new, contemporary life into well-loved standards and marrying the latest in technology with enduring craftsmanship. Innovative sprays elevate the showering experience, and universal compatibility means the system works wherever in the world it is installed. Inspired by iconic furniture and home goods, and defined by soft, approachable designs, the collection carries an underlying familiarity while creating striking aesthetics within the space.
“Showering re-envisioned at the most basic level,” is how the brand is describing it. An oblong showerhead results in more enveloping water coverage for the whole body, and seven immersive spray experiences offered within the collection include a ‘deep massage’ spray composed of twisting jets that knead sore muscles and a cloud spray that swathes the body in a warm mist. Other spray options include a full coverage rain, a dense, wide sweep, and ribbon massage that cascades in an angled stream. Additionally, the collection offers an infinity spray – interlaced water streams create three experience zones in a single spray – the droplets closest to the nozzle rinse, while the middle zone massages, and the farthest stream provides coverage. Many components also make use of the gamechanging Kohler Katalyst technology, which enhances every droplet with air for a warm, luxurious cloak of water.
“Showering is so much more than just getting clean. It is a chance to feel rejuvenated, a moment to focus on self-care,” said Lun Cheak Tan, Kohler Vice President of Industrial Design. “A shower should provide a rich experience – through design-forward craftsmanship, meaningful functionality and un-compromised focus on the user.”
The global Statement Collection includes a showerhead, four styles of handshowers, four unique rainheads, and two bodysprays, all available in a range of sizes and shapes to best suit the décor and design environment. Finishes include polished chrome, brushed nickel, matte black, and brushed moderne brass (finish options may vary by region); all are aesthetically arresting and created to yield a natural interplay with other accessories and design elements.
To add to Statement’s overall ease of use and provide peace of mind to designers and specifiers, the components were designed to be universally compatible. The collection is designed – from thread size to flow rate – to work globally, no matter how different the local codes and standards may be.
Statement represents an evolution in modern showering, one that engages all the senses and elevates the everyday. Its handsome forms are matched by exceptional function that results in an indulgent, customised showering experience.
