Kohler has built upon its Artist Editions with two new pattern designs, Persia and Nepal, that evoke images of caravans making their way along the legendary Silk Road trading route.
Available in gold and platinum on Kohler’s Caxton undercounter Lavatory and Conical Bell Vessel, the Caravan designs are expected to appeal to the region’s regal tastes.
“Historically, the Middle East has a proud culture and unmistakable identity that has remained at the core of regional design to this day. The new Caravan patterns stay true to that philosophy by evoking the imagery of the region’s ancestral silk trading pioneers, and is sure to appeal to the sophisticated tastes for modern products inspired by regional design,” said Mohamed Nada, regional marketing manager, Kohler.
With geometric patterns juxtaposed with sweeping curves, the Persia pattern has a distinct look influenced by Middle Eastern architecture and Moorish style. Gold and white – traditionally favoured in Persian design – has been applied to Kohler’s Persia pattern, where the white background enhances the gilded line work, allowing the sink to match gracefully with other bathroom fixtures and accessories.
With soothing colours and intricate design, the Nepal pattern creates a calm artistic atmosphere, and is the product of craftsmanship inspired by the Henna ceremonies and textile techniques of Eastern India. The pattern is composed of delicate details and subtle hues rendered on a translucent blue base.
The Caravan collection is available across the Middle East through Kohler’s regional distributor network on the Conical Bell Vessel model measuring 40.3 x 16.1 cm; and the Caxton Lavatory measuring 43.2 x 35.6 cm.
