The Effortless Hygiene of ModernLife

The ModernLife collection from Kohler raises the bar on the ease of maintenance while looking timeless and elegant.

The Effortless Hygiene of ModernLife


September 20th, 2017

How much time do you have to relax these days? If we have to guess – not enough? Life seems to move at a breakneck speed in the age of information. And when the weekend comes, domestic chores await at home. That’s why we celebrate designs that make our life easier.

The ModernLife Toilet range from Kohler addresses this need with clever, pared down features that make our busy modern lives more manageable. It features an easy-to-clean, invisible rim channel that leaves no place for germs and dirt to hide. The beveled rim slants towards the interior of the bowl, minimising excess liquid that might otherwise accumulate on its surface.

Some of the technologies built into ModernLife include the 360-degree dynamic flush flow that thoroughly covers and cleans the bowl’s interior, the patented CleanCoat stain-resistant coating, and a slim seat with a quick release and invisible hinge that facilitates ease of cleaning. Thanks to its stacked seat design, users can lift the seat over without touching the ceramic bowl.  

ModernLife also comes with optional features that turn your bathroom into a personal sanctuary. These optional features include a night light function that eliminates the need to turn on the bathroom lights (Kohler knows we’ve all groaned when we’ve turned on the bathroom light while we’re half asleep) in the middle of the night, and a deodorisation function.
