Kohler was looking for a new way to really re-brand themselves and make a product that showed off the companies “out of the box” thinking. That’s where the slogan came from: New. Life. Form. Karbon. Utilizing silver carbon fiber, Kohler came out with a really sexy, innovative, and functional sink faucet that’s called Karbon.
The Karbon features a stainless steel and silver carbon fiber design. The unique design also offers 3 pivoting points that literally allow you to point the faucet in whichever direction you’d like. A separate piece to the faucet allows you to change the water from regular to spray.
Kohler also had a really amazing looking commercial created which turns spouts of water into the actual faucet, allowing you to see the anatomy of how it all works. See for yourself:
There are a few more videos like the introduction and people using it. Check them out for yourself:
I couldn’t embed this video, but if you’re thinking about buying one, watch this one.
From what I’ve seen, the cost of the faucet is about $800 or so. In the introduction video, the Kohler executive stated that we should expect more carbon fiber to be used in the future. I’m hoping we can expect a “Karbon” line. Either way, the future of carbon fiber is an exciting one.
