Making its international debut in April this year, the WaterSense and CALGreen-certified Numi will up the ante for sophisticated living in the region with its minimalist, futuristic design and features that include a sleek, interactive LCD touch screen interface, intuitive auto-open and -close lid, music system, heated seat, foot warmer, deoderiser, bidet, and innovative dual flush technology. A distinctive, pared-down vision blended with personal technology will impress the most technologically-savvy user while the interface provides an easy-to-use experience for just about any member of the family.
“The Numi is truly an innovative product that makes a bold design statement, and where better to make that statement than at the Middle East’s only dedicated exhibition for kitchen and bathroom suppliers,” said Mohamed Nada, Regional Marketing Manager at Kohler Co. “Kohler envisioned a toilet that creates a category in a calibre of its own. Numi packs technology into a compact toilet and is controlled by an advanced and intuitive interface. It’s an astounding example of modern industrial design where form and function go hand in hand, and is sure to delight Index visitors, industry experts and consumers alike.”
Numi is a celebration of the most technologically inspired experience in personal convenience. Adopting legendary architect Mies van der Rohe’s “Less is more” mantra, the Kohler design team took a minimalist approach to Numi’s creation, arranging complex technological functions internally within a limited space, all while presenting extreme simplicity externally. The result: a figment of beauty and geometry with high attention to detail, featuring a series of intersecting planes.
Following Kohler’s successful 2005 launch of the Purist Hatbox toilet, whose tank-less silhouette redefined the bathroom category, Numi breaks the mould with its entirely new visual and technical language. Its design reflects a furniture aesthetic, creating an original toilet profile.
The Numi will be displayed on Kohler stand E307 in Hall 7 at Index 2011, Dubai World Trade Centre from the 22-25 October, and will be available through the Kohler Middle East distributor.
