Kohler is coming to 100% Design at Decorex Joburg on 8 August and will be showcasing the much anticipated winning bathroom design from the Dream in Kohler competition. Having been selected out of three finalists, winner Wilh van der Merwe’s inspired bathroom will become reality for the duration of the show.
The challenge put to Dream in Kohler contestants was to conceptualise their dream bathroom, drawing from Kohler’s state of the art products, while reflecting their own signature design aesthetic as well as a South African look and feel too.
For Wilh, this meant taking nature as his cue and incorporating natural materials into his design which boasts an easy flow, warmth and carefully conceived lighting. From Kohler’s broad, award-winning range of sanitary ware and fittings, Wilh chose to incorporate two of the brand’s most exciting releases from their elegant Veil range.
The Veil wall hung toilet is the ultimate in intelligent sanitary ware, fusing remote control operated smart technology with a sophisticated, contemporary design aesthetic. This clever toilet boasts self-cleaning capabilities, an automatic open and close function, integrated bidet and more, offering beauty and brains in one package.
Wilh’s second choice was the statement-making Veil freestanding bath, made from Kohler’s own Lithocast Gloss silky smooth cast resin. The bath’s generous, enveloping form and elegant design – inspired by the gentle flowing curves of a bridal veil offers users the ultimate in luxury and style for the bathroom.
For Wilh, having his dream bathroom realized at this prestigious design show has affirmed his work as a designer, bringing meaning to his passion.
Kohler invites you to come and view Wilh’s winning bathroom design at their stand D23 in Hall 1 from 8 till 12 August.
