Kohler x Daniel Arsham, Milan Design Week, 2022

Kohler x Daniel Arsham: Divided Layers

Kohler, global lifestyle brand and leader in kitchen and bath products, returns to Milan Design Week, with the world premiere of an immersive art experience in partnership with artist-designer, Daniel Arsham. In the Palazzo del Senato, Kohler’s FuoriSalone exhibition, “Divided Layers,” is a site-specific installation that builds upon the duo’s release of Rock.01: a 3-D printed sink that Daniel Arsham designed in collaboration with Kohler in 2021. Viewers will discover a series of stacked panels combined to form a walkable tunnel. When developing Rock.01, Arsham was inspired to create “Divided Layers” to give guests the ability to move through the sink. Within the installation, a pond acts as a mirrored surface to double and reflect the opening of the cavernous volume. Arsham intends for visitors to contemplate the acceptance of space and its malleability, understanding the relationship between volumes. The cadence of the walls mimics the rhythm of the columns within the Palazzo, contributing to an entire atmosphere that represents movement and flow.

In honor of Milan Design Week, Kohler has made a donation to Water Mission’s WASH projects in Indonesia, helping to bring safe water and sanitation to up to 10,000 people through 15 projects in 2022. Through impactful products and inspiring partnerships, Kohler’s Believing in Better platform strives to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations through design, craftsmanship, and innovation.
