Like much of Daniel’s work, Rock.01 is an homage to time. Comprised of 3D-printed vitreous china and hand-poured brass, the sink’s vessel blends modern-day technology with Kohler’s nearly 148-year manufacturing legacy into what can only be described as functional high art.

Kohler’s collaboration with contemporary artist Daniel Arsham and subsequent debut at Design Miami/ 2021 celebrates creative innovation and expert craftsmanship. The Kohler and Arsham Rock.01 is a one-of-a-kind limited-edition 3D-printed sink which debuted in a co-created space at the world famous design fair.

As part of the debut of Rock.01 in Kohler’s Design Miami/ space, New York based Arsham created a custom installation entitled ‘Stone Flow’, which featured a series of stone-like objects and forms to reflect the design process, inspired by organic forms found in nature.

Like much of Daniel’s work, Rock.01 is an homage to time. Comprised of 3D-printed vitreous china and hand-poured brass, the sink’s vessel blends modern-day technology with Kohler’s nearly 148-year manufacturing legacy into what can only be described as functional high art. The effects of time are reflected in the patina of the brass ‘rock’ and achieved through a forced coercion process.

Kohler’s revolutionary method of 3D printing vitreous china is at the forefront of innovation in the industry, and the technology itself is what made it possible to produce Daniel’s design which was too complex to produce using traditional methods. Kohler’s exploration into 3D-printed vitreous china challenges the traditional conforms widely accepted within bathroom design, and welcomes the discussions of the future of the bathroom and its relationship with functional art.

Arsham’s collaboration with Kohler reflects the company’s long-standing commitment to the arts. Since 1873, Kohler’s mission has been to contribute to gracious living through the highest level of design, craftmanship, and innovation.
