Tube spout with Industrial handles in matte black
Introducing Components, a full bathroom and accessory collection for the contemporary bathroom that speaks to the many facets of modern design. Every element, from spouts and handles to the accessories that complete the space, is designed to feel like a minimalist piece of modern sculpture.
Designed to be designed
Based in Paris, the design team behind the Components collection sought inspiration for a new modern, modular faucet design in the Bauhaus movement and the minimalist aesthetic that dominates much of European architecture, art and design. The result is a modern take on faucets unlike anything else from KOHLER.
What is the KOHLER Components collection?
The collection invites you to design your own signature look by combining a faucet spout with your style of handles. The different spout and handle combinations possible within this curated collection allow you to infuse the room with your style.
Once you have found a combination that speaks to your taste, select a finish and bring the entire room together with Components showering designs and accessories. With different combinations creating distinct looks, Components is a versatile collection that was designed to be designed. By you.
What is “Designed to be designed”?
Designed to be designed means that the Components collection was made for designers and decorators who want to create personalised spaces. The versatility and personalisation of the Components collection enables it to be used in a wide range of looks and styles.
“With Components the client is the designer. They are part of the design process,” says Bruno Chenesseau, design studio director, Kohler Kitchen & Bath EMEA.
Components is a simple, three-step process to create one’s own, unique look:
For basin and bath, choose from three designs. ROW, monumental yet playful and featuring laminar flow for a smooth stream of water; RIBBON, slim, sinuous, sweeping architectural lines; and TUBE, a timeless, classic cylindrical profile.
Ribbon spout with Rocker handle in Titanium
For basins there is a choice of the sleek, single-control ROCKER inspired by the scrolling action on smart devices. ROCKER can be placed anywhere on the deck, within range. OYL, inspired by precision-tooled gauges and dials, is for widespread configurations. INDUSTRIAL is influenced by machine valves and factory pipes while LEVER is a slender, elegant take on classic design. For bath applications choose from OYL, INDUSTRIAL and LEVER.
The handles each have distinct looks that feature fluid and intuitive control.

Choose from POLISHED CHROME, MATTE BLACK, TITANIUM, BRUSHED NICKEL, and ROSE GOLD.

And if a simple single lever mixer is all that is required, the Components range includes a faucet in chrome with an easy roll pin lever handle plus an ingenuous back-lit temperature indicator.

To complete the range, an extensive range of accessories in matching finishes are available including hotelier, towel bars, robe hooks, towel rings and toilet tissue holders.

Kohler Co, a global leader in kitchen and bath design and innovation, will soon be adding additional products to its global range – the Veil Collection. The Veil Collection carries a modern, minimalist vibe with elements of warmth threaded throughout. The word “modern” conjures images of crisp, cool lines, but the Veil Collection gives modern bathroom design a new twist by featuring gentle lines and sculpted asymmetrical shapes in addition to intelligent features.
New additions to the range
Three new products will join the existing Veil Collection which includes the Veil Intelligent Wall Hung toilet and the Veil Intelligent Wall Faced toilet suite. With its clean, refined design lines and concealed tank, the Veil intelligent toilets offer smart toilet functionality with minimal aesthetic interruption to the overall bathroom space. The intelligent toilets include features such as automatic opening/closing lid and flushing to minimise touch points, easing user’s concerns about spreading germs in the bathroom. The Veil Intelligent toilets use cutting-edge technology to provide comfort features including seamless, integrated bidet functionality, packaging these personal hygiene considerations in a design that is both unassuming and approachable.
Veil Freestanding Lithocast Bath
The Veil Lithocast Freestanding bath features flowing and balanced curves to elicit a sculpted simplicity. This freestanding bath provides a way to make a front-and-centre statement of design and style within the bathroom space. The ergonomically-designed bath offers comfort and relaxation, allowing the bather to fully immerse and indulge.
Veil Essential Basins
The Veil Collection Essential Basins boast the signature Supramic technology thin walls, offering an elegant and visually delicate aesthetic. Kohler’s exclusive Supramic technology delivers thin-wall edges without compromising performance of the ceramic material – in fact, this innovative material technology provides thinner edges with improved durability. In addition, the basins include Kohler’s Cleancoat™ technology which prevents bacteria, mildew and mineral deposits from sticking to the ceramic, so the basin stays cleaner longer.
Veil’s flowing and immaculately balanced curves evoke a sculpted simplicity in tune with contemporary style. Enhanced by a high-gloss finish, the basin’s sleek, organic shape is easy to clean, and keep clean.
The Veil Collection is one of Kohler’s global offerings, featured in showrooms and Kohler Experience Centres around the world.
French curve. Wrap. Slim. Elite. Are we talking dress shapes? Handbags? Well, toilet seats actually!
Yes, there is a look. There is a shape. And there is a definite trend! Kohler Company, the global specialist in bathroom design, has released its latest take on the toilet seat styles that are trending in Australia today.
Shape – read aesthetics – is a key consideration, as is hygiene. Kohler’s latest offering places both of these demands at the top of its features list.
With models such as the Grande (in back to the wall and wall hung configurations) Kohler offers a choice of three toilet seat options – all of which fit the same toilet pan.
The Wrap, whereby the lid wraps over the seat, is a more conventional design, producing a seamless profile. The Slim is a very low profile seat and lid that is an inspired choice for the contemporary bathroom.
Kohler Grande Wall Hung Suites with either a slim, or wrap seat option.

The third and most deluxe offering is the Elite – an identical profile to the Slim but with the added benefit of a concealed scent dispenser (activated when the user comes in contact with the seat) and a night light.
The Elite seat comes with a fragrance trial pack. Just add AAA batteries to activate your motion sensing LED night light!
The comfort of the seat is a vital aspect of the seat design and Kohler opts for high quality, non-stain resin in a smooth, contoured shape that ensures a comfortable, ergonomic fit on posteriors of many sizes.
Veil is the brand’s flagship intelligent toilet – a self-cleaning bidet and toilet in one appliance – featuring the French curve heated seat with a gently dished shape to minimise the pressure points and create extra comfort. The seat is made from an antibacterial material to enhance hygiene levels while its deodorising carbon filter and LED night light provide extra convenience. Special mention should be made of the Veil’s balanced curves and sculpted form that inject a sense of beauty into any bathroom space.
The Veil Wall Hung Intelligent Toilet
Such is the importance of superior design in the humble toilet seat that ModernLife, Kohler’s most recent addition, has even won a prestigious international design award! Modern Life, the brand’s first truly rimless toilet, available in back to wall suite and wall faced configurations, received the Red Dot Design Award for discreet design and outstanding practical cleaning features.
Modern Life offers the choice of Slim or Elite seats for both pan configurations.
Toilet seats such as Kohler’s Grande, Reach, Modern Life and Parliament are quiet close with vertical quick release operation – the seat can be quickly detached with a ‘one-hand lift’ for fast and easy cleaning.
The Wall Hung and Wall Faced toilet configurations come with your choice of flushplate. Click here to see all Kohler flushplates.

New generation toilets are ‘flush’ with style, shape and comfort together with higher levels of water efficiency and easy-clean features.
Kohler’s new Reach II back-to-wall toilet suite packs a lot of innovation into a compact design that shaves up to 70mm off the length (protrusion from the wall) of conventional models.
The new rimless Reach II Compact Back To Wall Toilet Suite
Designed for both new builds and renovations the Reach II’s 4 star WELS rating (4.5/3.5L) ensures it is well within new build codes while its 610mm projection from the wall makes it a preferred choice of back to wall toilet for more compact spaces.
Featuring contemporary flared straight skirt and clean lines, the Reach II has the highest hygiene credentials with the Kohler HygieneMax rimless pan technology delivering a robust, double wash-down with optimal coverage of the interior bowl.
There is a choice of two comfortable seat designs, the low profile Slim and the more seamless Wrap Over seat. Each seat is quiet close with vertical quick release operation – meaning the seat can be quickly detached with a ‘one-hand lift’ for fast and easy cleaning.

For renovators the Reach II is truly versatile, with both P-trap and S-trap vario connection and side or top rear entry.
Home renovations continue to grow at a greater rate than new home construction according to HIA, with a bathroom renovation identified as one area that can add the most value to a home.
Bathroom renovations add great value
With the average cost of a bathroom renovation coming in at round $17,522 and 34 – 54 year olds spending the most, brands like Kohler are keen to flag the latest trends and technological updates to would-be renovators.
Bathrooms have evolved – and blossomed – into temples of personal care. Gone are the sterile, clinical white spaces – today’s bathroom exudes plush comfort and zen-like calm. Colour and texture are key players – in the form of terrazzo or concrete floors, lush foliage and ‘precious metals’ tapware. Statement basins are also high profile inclusions.
Key to the look is a perception of space; natural materials (stone, timber, vegetation and floral design elements); and spa-like technology. Kohler has recently introduced the Dutchmaster collection of artisanal basins that encapsulates the starring role nature and florals can play in a new bathroom. Inspired by the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, the entire surface of each basin – round or rectangular – is adorned with big, bold, lush florals dramatically enhanced by a deeply dark, moody background.
These basins are the perfect partner for one of Kohler’s wall mount or bench mount mixer taps in a luscious selection of precious metal finishes – from polished and rose gold to vibrant brushed bronze, titanium and brushed nickel. The classically elegant design of the Purist mixer taps or the more contemporary, angular form of Composed are popular choices.
Clever inclusions to increase the perception of space are wall-mounted fixtures such as wall-hung toilets and floating vanities. The more floor space that can be seen, the bigger the perception of space. Kohler’s Veil Wall-Hung Intelligent toilet integrates a toilet and bidet in one and has stand-out features such as touchless flushing, one touch remote control functionality, hygienic rimless bowl and built-in UV self-cleansing bidet. The Grande Wall-Hung suite meanwhile, features super hygienic rim-free technology and an ultra-efficient flush system.

Wall-hung or floating vanities, in a sleek, understated design of sparkling vitreous china and hardwood detailing are a perfect fit for the modern bathroom. Kohler’s Terrace collection comes in a range of four sizes to fit virtually any bathroom dimensions.

The choice of shower is pivotal to achieving the spa-like indulgence we all crave – and Kohler has a number of options. The Exhale showerhead fulfils two aspects of the modern bathroom brief – its beautiful soft white silicone spray-face was inspired by the delicate petals of a dahlia while its Katalyst air-induction showering technology infuses water with air to create a powerful, luxurious deluge much like a rain shower. In fact, there are four spray experiences on offer – full coverage, drenching rain, pulsating massage and silk spray.
The Exhale Showerhead offers 4 different shower spray options to suit your mood.
For those preferring an overhead shower there are the RainCan showerheads in square and round configurations, again with Katalyst technology – or, for a clever dual option the Converge is a truly multifunction showerhead. This beauty combines a wall mount shower that has an integrated hand shower that detaches from the exterior rim by virtue of a magnetic docking station.
Kohler’s key message to would-be renovators is to do the research first – there are so many new, beautiful and technologically advanced products for the modern bathroom that will beautify the space, elevate the luxury of the bathing experience and create the perception of additional space. And there are choices to fit any budget.
