Kohler plans to wow visitors to its stand at the “K & B Essentials” feature of Index 2011 next week, with the Middle East launch of its Numi “smart” toilet.
It will also exhibit products showcasing the latest in technology, sustainability and conservation from its Artist Editions range, as well as faucets, showers, fixtures and furniture.
Making its international debut in April this year, the WaterSense and CALGreen-certified Numi will throw the spotlight on minimalist, futuristic design including an interactive LCD touch screen interface, auto-open and -close lid, music system, heated seat, foot warmer, deodoriser, bidet, and dual flush.
“The Numi is truly an innovative product that makes a bold design statement, and where better to make that statement than at the Middle East’s only dedicated exhibition for kitchen and bathroom suppliers,” said Mohamed Nada, regional marketing manager, Kohler.
“Kohler envisioned a toilet that creates a category in a calibre of its own. Numi packs technology into a compact toilet and is controlled by an advanced and intuitive interface. It’s an astounding example of modern industrial design where form and function go hand in hand, and is sure to delight Index visitors, industry experts and consumers alike.”
Adopting legendary architect Mies van der Rohe’s “Less is more” mantra, the Kohler design team took a minimalist approach to Numi’s creation, arranging complex technological functions internally within a limited space, all while presenting extreme simplicity externally.
The Numi will be displayed on Kohler stand E307 in Hall 7 at Index 2011, Dubai World Trade Centre from October 22-25, and will be available through the Kohler Middle East distributor.
