Formilia forms star in new bathroom collection.
June 15th, 2011
Drawing inspiration from the Bauhaus principle of three basic shapes, the brand new collection of basins and vanities from Kohler celebrates bold linear forms that can be mixed and matched to suit every conceivable bathroom space.
Called Formilia, the collection comprises four beautifully different yet undoubtedly linked ranges – Spherik, Rythmik, Rondik and Graphik. Each features a basin and vanity top in one piece – creating spacious planes of pure white vitreous china.
Spherik is a marriage of elemental forms with wide, shallow circular bowls juxtaposed by square or rectangular shapes of countertop for personal grooming items.
Rythmik evokes the visual image of the superbly balanced yin and yang – in this case, two halves of a whole create functional basin with generous counter space.
Rondik is a softly rounded rectangular shape that is especially functional – the counter space is a subtle extension of the basin with a raised edge that accommodates wet items without any risk of water spilling onto the floor.
Graphik, with its deeply geometric lines, completes the Formilia collection. Broad expanses of rectangular planes of white vitreous china are punctuated by deep, square bowls creating a visual focal point for any style of bathroom.
All of the basins in the Formilia collection can be wall mounted and are available in a number of different sizes.
Kohler is a global leader in bathroom product design and manufacture – its extensive range of taps, basins, baths, spas, showers and toilet suites is available from Tradelink and Mico Design showrooms nationally.

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
