Kohler’s Perspective of the Year provides a design-centered framework for emerging ideas in the global marketplace. Through the Perspective of the Year, we seek to initiate a conversation about the relationship of architecture and design to developments within art, fashion, entertainment, business, lifestyles and other cultural touchstones.


Experiential Luxury

Experiential Luxury Defined

Experiential Luxury creates a rich and dynamic environment by indulging the senses on multiple levels, beckoning us toward an immersive experience, beautiful details and delightful sensations through the harmonious union of technology, color, pattern and material.

At its core, it is the combination of the right experience and the right expression. And only KOHLER® allows you to achieve one without sacrificing the other.

Experiential Luxury Delivered

Ours is a world in which the complexity of modern life often drives us toward the streamlined and simplified. Taken too far, the spaces we inhabit risk becoming sterile, lacking any personal expression. Experiential Luxury is our solution. It invites you to add an immersive experience to any environment.

Technology, pattern, material and color form the foundational elements through which Experiential Luxury is achieved. Together, through unexpected combinations and inspired expression, these elements not only captivate and delight but also reclaim our personal spaces as opportunities for experience — the ultimate luxury.

Experiential luxury is about layers of detail. It’s about layers of expression and bringing those together in a way that is charming, tasteful, expressive and personal.

_____Mark Bickerstaffe, Head of Design, Kohler Co.

The Perspective of the Year gives us an opportunity to connect with architects and designers. We look to them to inspire us, but we also look to ourselves to give them the tools to create those environments.
