Ho Chi Minh City, December 2020 – Kohler Co., a global leader in the design and innovation of kitchen and bath products, launches the Manchester United Collection now available for purchase and at selected showroom locations in 16 markets in Asia (China, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan). The stunning new collection of bathroom products and accessories was developed in conjunction with the iconic football club and offers a high level of design, form and function for bathroom spaces.
The stylish new collection is inspired by Manchester United’s legacy of excellence, iconic aesthetic, and Kohler’s long history of leading-edge design and quality craftsmanship. Distinguishing product features include alternating layers of matte and glossy black surfaces that exude a fashion-forward appeal, grey tones, and tasteful touches of red emphasizing details like the signature Red Devils logo and other nuances at key points of user interactions. Developed for everyday use, the new products are well suited for those looking to incorporate the boldness of black, while also adding a level of texture and intrigue to their bathroom spaces.
“We collaborated with Manchester United on this new collection to celebrate our partnership with equal parts of sophistication, quality and expression that enhance interior design options for the bathroom,” said Larry Yuen, group president, kitchen and bath at Kohler Co. “The restrained yet confident collection uses black as the dominant theme reflecting strength and purpose, with touches of red details in key locations that are subtle,yet daring.”
The Manchester United Collection is “designed to be designed” with interchangeable products and accessories. The collection uses the KOHLER Components line as its creative and foundational base, which includes several faucet configuration options, handshowers, shower doors, a sleek chalice sink, and a Volute Freestanding bath. The Manchester United crest is included on select products, including drain covers and bathing accessories for additional detail to help create the desired experience. Rounding out the new offering is the KOHLER DTV Mode, which offers digital and manual showering functionality.
