Creating better experiences for people by improving the performance of water delivery and efficiency is a competitive advantage for Kohler. The following product innovations will be highlighted, among others, at the Kohler CES booth (#5921):
— Anthem Smart Showering Valves and Controls simultaneously deliver
different temperatures, pressures, and spray settings for each water
outlet with the touch of a button. Rinsing with warm and cool water at
the same time offers hydrotherapy benefits and creates a spa-like
experience at home. Anthem digital smart showering systems control up
to six water outlets and display how much water was used after each
shower to help inform people about their consumption.
— Statement VES (Variable Eco-Spray) Showerhead and Handshower use up to
40 percent less water than the typical 2.5gpm showerhead. Statement
VES’s low-flow spray is optimized to provide strong rinsing coverage
while maintaining warmth – addressing two key shower experience needs.
The Statement collection includes Kohler’s Katalyst air-induction
technology that infuses air into the water droplets to make them feel
larger and retain heat longer for a more luxurious soak while using
less water. Statement showerheads are compatible with existing pipes
for an easy upgrade.
— H2Wise Smart Water Monitoring Systems, powered by Phyn monitors and
tracks all household water usage, alerts users to leaks, and provides
pre-freeze warnings. H2Wise(TM)+ features remote shutoff functionality
in the case of a catastrophic leak. A new frozen pipe mitigation smart
feature coming in Q2 2023, detects if pipes begin to freeze and
instructs a KOHLER Konnect water fixture to briefly relieve pressure
and minimize potential damage.
— Eir Smart Toilet offers convenient features such as heated seat,
personal cleansing, auto open and close lid, dual flush, and smart
automatic flush capabilities that meet the EPA’s WaterSense criteria.
The sleek design and multiple finish options expand the range of
Kohler’s smart toilet portfolio.
— Sprig is Kohler’s new lifestyle brand, consisting of sleek shower
infusion systems with natural shower infusion pods, versatile body and
linen mists, and premium bath bombs that provide a peaceful escape
through aromatherapy. Sprig infusion systems easily retrofit to an
existing shower to diffuse aromatherapy into water, making it simple
for people to elevate a daily routine into a moment of escape to
— Alo tile by ANN SACKS, a Kohler company, is made from 50-70 percent
recycled glass from discarded TV and PC screens and will be on display
As a 2023 CES Innovation Award honoree, Kohler’s Stillness Infinity Experience bath will make its on-site debut this year for attendees to see, smell, hear, and feel the multi-sensory smart bathing experience that transforms the bathroom into a sanctuary for relaxation and comfort.
Kohler is introducing Remote Diagnostics to provide the highest level of customer care for trouble shooting products using the KOHLER Konnect mobile app. It offers immediate feedback on the status of devices, step-by-step instructions to diagnose and remedy issues, or the ability to transfer data and connect people directly with a customer service representative for personalized support. Remote Diagnostics is available now for Anthem smart showering and PerfectFill smart bath filler, a 2022 CES Innovation Award honoree, and will be an option for future KOHLER Konnect enabled products.
