Kohler and UAE bathroom supplier Al Hashimya have opened a boutique showroom in Abu Dhabi stocking artisan-style sinks and faucets.
The collection includes the Artist Editions product line of decorative sinks made from natural materials, US kitchen and bathroom product manufacturer Kohler said.
Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi on Sheikh Rashed Bin Saeed Street, Kohler and Al Hashimya claim the showroom is the “first of its kind” in the Middle East.
It stocks a wide range of high-end lines, such as the Artist Editions Kamala Collection that draws inspiration from Asian tribal rain drums.
Kohler’s regional president, Salil Sadanandan, told Commercial Interior Design the showroom’s concept is based on experiential luxury and added that more showrooms will be opened in the GCC soon.
“We are optimistic that the UAE and Abu Dhabi, in particular, have a huge potential as one of the strategic growth markets in the Middle East region,” he said. “Also, the home owners in this market are in constant search for bold and rich design styles that expresses their taste, and our boutique showroom will answer these needs with Kohler beautiful and luxurious bathroom products.”
The design style of upcoming projects means the Middle East is “a strategic area” for Kohler, he added. “We are always looking at expanding and increasing our market shares, and we have new showrooms opening in UAE and Kuwait in the near future.”
