Kohler Co., a leader in the design and manufacture of kitchen and bath products, has launched a new retail concept — the KOHLER Experience Center (KEC) — at 6 West 22nd Street in New York City
The Center houses fully-functioning displays of Kohler’s product line available across the world — a first for both the industry and for the KOHLER brand.
This will enable trade professionals to test and source KOHLER products.
Fully-functioning products, including showers, tubs, sinks and toilets will enable all customers to experience the differences in performance and design.
“Our Kohler Experience Centers build upon the success of our Signature Stores and will uniquely provide a deeper immersion into our product offerings for trade professionals sourcing and selecting the best products for any project, wherever it may be in the world,” said David Kohler, president and chief executive officer of Kohler Co.
At the New York City flagship in the Flatiron District, each touch point of the 10,000 s/f space – from more than 20 kitchen and bath vignettes and the Artist Editions Gallery, to the art displayed in the storefront window – is designed to connect and inspire.
The Experience Center within the KEC is the only private bathing space in New York City where guests can exclusively experience Kohler’s most offering of products.
KEC will also offer a new KOHLER global specification service, which will for the first time allow professional architects and designers working on international projects to have instant, hands-on access to all products across the entire KOHLER global portfolio.
A Kohler team of experts will be stationed on-site to help resolve complex plumbing projects in the US and around the world.
