Like fashion, bathroom trends come and go. Its safe to say no one expected the brightly-coloured loos of the seventies to be making a comeback, but that's just what has happened (see The Bold Bathroom Company and its sister company). The iconic brand, Kohler, who first popularised coloured bathrooms way back when, has never stopped innovating. At last week's Milan Design Week, the company gave attendee's an inside look at the future of personalised avant garde bathrooms by partnering with an international roster of female artists - Ananda Nahú from Brazil, Ziling Wang from China, Pushpa Kumari from India and Elle from the USA - on four unique bathroom sets.
Their collection, 'The Creator's Journey', transforms the traditionally blank slate whiteness of sanitary ware into colourful artistic objects from Kohler's Brazn and Numi product range, and has been spearheaded by Laura Kohler, its Chief Sustainability and Diversity Officer. Ms. Kohler reaffirmed that her business , "is dedicated to creating a space for the cross-section of artistry and craftsmanship in our industry.” We have to admit, we love the idea of the bathroom as not only an artistic space, but the bath itself as a work of art? We're all in.
