This product line met a critical market need for Kohler providing classic, refined, modern geometry that is demanded by architects, designers and consumers. Loure showcases Kohler’s first single control bath filler and introduced their new dry stem valve technology, UltraGlide™. The complete collection offers a design solution that provides a cleaner deck space, intuitive actuation and simplified installation for the plumber. A Rite Temp bath/shower trim fitting on a newly designed pressure balance valve with diverter actuation was designed to have an ergonomically correct push/pull mechanism for ease of use to the consumer.
Building a family of 18 products in a minimal aesthetic required a multitude of iterations and modifications of the form to meet the challenges of the internal mechanisms and waterways. Unique opportunities presented themselves such as integrating flipside technology into a shower arm and developing a gracious sheetflow water delivery befitting the Kohler Brand. The constant balance of forms manifested into a cohesive design family that result in a sleekly profiled faucet with enhanced utility for the consumer.
