Jonathan Adler & Kohler Explore How Color Can Transform A Room [NY Design Week 2012]
The Interior designer and appliance brand team-up to create a fun new take on the brand's classic cast iron sinks.
Celebrity designer Jonathan Adler recently teamed up with Wisconsin-based home appliance brand, Kohler, to introduce a new line of colorful sinks for the kitchen and bathroom. The collection, which made its debut at the 2012 International Contemporary Furniture Fair, explores the question of the impact color can have amidst the white, ‘sterile’ space that traditionally defines a bathroom and kitchen.
Adler, known for his use of bright colors in his own designs, was intent on bringing color back to the kitchen and bathroom, spaces where he saw a general lack of bold options and experimentation. He wanted to take a risk, making the spaces where ‘safe options’ usually ruled, fun and striking. The sinks, made from Kohler’s signature cast iron material, come in six different styles and four punchy colors like ‘Piccadilly Yellow’ and ‘Greenwich Green.’ The striking hues of the sinks are grounded by a modest white faucet that connects the appliance back to the other objects in the kitchen or bathroom.
