Rewatch here found memories of inspiration from Yabu Pushelberg’s ethereal booth at Salone del Mobile.Milano to Samuel Ross’ bold architectural installation at Palazzo del Senato in April.

“Kohler Co. brands offer the most comprehensive range of designs, product categories and technologies to realize design visions through complete specification support.

We are thrilled to partner with Kohler Co., leaders in innovative design solutions at Salone del Mobile 2024 and debut our first booth design in Milan. We wanted to create a booth with presence and together, we designed a world where luxury meets purpose and innovation is harmonized with wellbeing”, says George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg, founding partners of Yabu Pushelberg.

Through advanced technologies, sophisticated designs, immersive experiences, and a rich tapestry of color, material, finish, and pattern, the brands of Kohler Co. enable architects and designers to create the spaces that define our world.


Much of the display emphasizes the links between technology, design, and wellness within the modern bathroom. The KOHLER Anthem + digital showering system, which allows users to control their showering experiences from water delivery and temperature to steam, alongside the Kohler x SR_A Formation 02 smart toilet, lead the way in technology solutions that enhance the bathroom experience.

Kohler also previews the concept product Numi 2.0 smart toilet with electronic-ink integration, empowering the surfaces of the toilet to showcase vibrant colors and customizable patterns, making the toilet more like an avant-garde dynamic art installation.

KLAFS, the world’s leading sauna manufacturer, displays a collaboration with Studio F. A. Porsche on its striking limited-edition S11 free-standing sauna with elegant metallic champagne-colored cladding and a traditional Japanese Washi paper wall creating an organic warm feeling of endless space.

Kohler introduces the Rista Vessel bathroom 3D printed sink, an innovative 3D printed basin that combines digital technology with traditional craftsmanship, setting a new standard in the industry. The vitreous china sinks are meticulously crafted in small batches by skilled artisans, ensuring high quality and uniqueness in each piece.

Two new faucet finishes, Brushed Graphite from Kohler, and Polished Graphite from Kallista, marry new industrialism with quiet luxury, offering a rich, dark, contemporary finish option on premium faucet collections for the bathroom and kitchen spaces. The new Kallista Guise faucet collection artfully merges bold, rectangular forms with detailed transitions for a distinctive, sculptural design and a spout cast from a single piece for no parting seams.

Kohler expanded its Heritage Colors collection with a new curated selection of three archival green hues making a grand reintroduction into stylish kitchen and bath spaces. Following the success of last year’s Heritage Colors release, Kohler is reviving nature-inspired greens including Fresh Green (1971), Aspen Green (1978), and Teal (1987) that will be available exclusively on some of Kohler’s most iconic designs.

The Kast Wave concrete wash basin collection offers a fresh take on bathroom design, drawing inspiration from Italian Radicalism and Postmodernism movements. Characterized by whimsical silhouettes and undulating forms, each basin serves as a vibrant centerpiece, infusing the bathroom with creative energy and delight. The Kast Holm sink design draws inspiration from the classic beauty of terrazzo, blending its speckled visuals with the tactile feel of concrete. With minimal and contemporary basin shapes, the design concept emphasizes understated elegance while highlighting the dynamic textures of the terrazzo inserts.

Kallista debuts the Bandeau Artistic Shower collection, drawing inspiration from women’s headbands in featuring a metal strap or a textured stone décor that gracefully wraps around the showerhead perimeter, creating a design detail that is both artistic and sculptural.

The Kohler WasteLAB transforms manufacturing waste materials into beautifully designed products, including the new WasteLAB Vox sink, the first sink in the portfolio, constructed of more than 70% recycled material contributing to a circular economy and Kohler’s goal of zero waste to landfill.
