Daniel Arsham Juxtaposes Tech and Tradition for Kohler Rock.01 Sink

By Pearl Fontaine

November 12, 2021

Kohler recently revealed a collaboration with the artist Daniel Arsham, which officially debuts in December during Design Miami/. Arsham was invited to design a one-of-a-kind 3D-printed sink using the brand’s pioneering technology, which resulted in a limited 99-piece edition available for purchase later this year.

As the artist’s practice delves into the passing of time, so does his concept for the sink. Called “the Rock.01,” the fixture (created with Kohler’s partner The Art Lab Studio) was printed using a  method for 3D-printing vitreous china, complete with a section of hand-poured brass—a perfect juxtaposition of top-tier technology with traditional techniques.

“Rock.01 melds the future of 3D-printing technology with the most basic methods of hand-cast brass. It is literally the new resting on top of the old, and I find that incredibly poetic,” said Arsham.

The basin itself presents as a smooth white, rock-like form. It appears as though the running of water has eroded its surface to create a smooth, rippled finish over the course of many years. Outfitted with a sleek, streamlined faucet, the basin sits on a mound of brass, which has the bluish-green appearance of weathered rock, appearing as though its been mined from the Earth itself.

Said Arsham, ““Kohler was the ideal partner to bring such a complex and futuristic design to life.”
