Re-thinking the home spa soaking bath, Kohler uses a clean architectural language, instead of a plumbing language, to describe its sok Overflowing Bath. This great soaker tub uses an effervescence water recirculation system, rather than pummeling water jets, to soothe the body.
"The architectural simplicity of this soaking tub belies its advanced technological concept. Human comfort and convenience is paramount without looking like a therapeutic device." -Niels Diffrient, FIDSA
An exciting design for the traditionally unexciting educational furniture market, the KI Einstein line improves student performance by providing comfort, proper support and functionality. Chairs and desks are made in four sizes for use from preschoolers to adults. The modular units can be easily moved to enhance learning and are made of super tough materials to last at least 15 years.
The construction process is advanced and the overall design shows a very clever construction technique, while the design language displays rugged comfort, ease-of-use and flexibility. The four-legged, stackable side chair from the Cachet line features a balanced action rocker mechanism, allowing individuals to gently recline as the seat flexes. The chair's reclining ability relieves pressure on back discs and sitting bones. Comfort without adjusting a mechanism makes for easy use, stacking and storage.
A unique example where function triumphed over form, the AkroClean Janitor cart is well thought out and its thoughtful features are extremely well organized. It offers building/mall cleaners and janitors a cart with more stability and comfort by putting the trash well in the middle and separating wet and dry areas. The cart's configuration is flexible and the storage area greater, maximizing cleaning output while minimizing cleaning time.
