Kohler x Jack Irving Collaborate at Clerkenwell Design Week
To celebrate the relaunch of its London Experience Center, Kohler is unveiling a collaboration with UK fashion designer Jack Irving during Clerkenwell Design Week.
Inspired by Kohler’s new digital showering collection Statement and Anthem, Irving’s window display is called Future Splash and reflects the beautiful, organic form of water when captured in slow motion or fused with technology. Future Splash celebrates immersive showering experiences and embodies the spectacular forms created when water is energized by technology.
Reflecting the chrome and matte black finishes of some of Kohler’s ranges, the installation is a hybrid of both art and fashion, combining static futuristic sculptures alongside a wearable tech statement piece, which will be demonstrated by one of Irving’s models.
The London KEC has been closed for a few months to allow for a full high spec refurbishment of the space, which offers a creative design hub for architects and specifiers across Europe and beyond. On Tuesday 24th May the KEC will be opening its doors to Clerkenwell Design Week visitors, allowing them a glimpse at the new showroom along with the spectacle of Jack Irving’s window display.
Jack Irving is a Central St Martins performance design alumnus, known for his theatre and production work. His fantastical creations span entertainment, having collaborated with productions such as Secret Cinema; high profile fashion, having designed pieces for Lady Gaga and the Spice Girls, as well as more recently presenting his first solo London Fashion Week Show in collaboration with On|Off. Irving has also worked with hospitality design through his ongoing relationship with the W Hotel.
The new Statement and Anthem showering collections elevate the showering routine to a next level sensory event, further expanding Kohler’s industry-leading approach to digital showering. This combination of advanced technology with unique shapes and an array of colour finishes breathes new life into well-loved standards. Statement and Anthem marry the latest in technology with enduring craftsmanship. Furthermore, universal compatibility means the system works wherever it is installed around the world.
The newly refurbished KEC will be open by appointment only. For further information on the events running at the KEC during Clerkenwell Design Week please contact [email protected]
