KOHLER, Wis. – Dec. 6, 2021 – Kohler Co., global leader in the design and innovation of kitchen and bathroom products, announces today that the much-anticipated limited edition 3D-printed Rock.01 sink will be available for purchase as of 12pm EST on Dec. 10 – sold exclusively through kohlercollective.com. The Rock.01 sink comes from the collaboration between Kohler and New York-based artist Daniel Arsham.
Kohler debuted Rock.01 this past week at Design Miami/ 2021, displayed within Arsham’s Stone Flow installation, a series of stone-like objects and forms that further explored his design process, which plays with organic forms found in nature.
Like much of Arsham’s work, Rock.01 is an homage to time. Comprised of 3D-printed vitreous china and hand-poured brass, the sink’s vessel blends modern-day technology with Kohler’s nearly 148-year manufacturing legacy into what can only be described as functional high art. The effects of time are reflected in the patina of the brass “rock” and achieved through a forced coercion process.
Kohler’s revolutionary method of 3D-printing vitreous china is at the forefront of innovation in the industry, and the technology itself is what made it possible to produce Daniel’s design which was too complex to produce using traditional methods.
Rock.01 is on display at both the KOHLER Experience Center NYC and LAX. For more information on Kohler x Arsham Rock.01 3D-Printed bathroom sink, please visit kohlercollective.com.
