Singapore, 16 August 2018 – Kohler Co., a global leader in the design and manufacture of kitchen and bath products, celebrates its first anniversary of the KOHLER Experience Center (KEC) in Singapore today. The celebration marks a special milestone for the kitchen and bathroom giant that came from humble beginnings.
Launched in Singapore last September, the flagship located along Peck Seah Street is a retail concept that showcases the full offering of Kohler’s products in an on-site immersive setup. With a total of seven KECs around the world, each KEC combines technology, hospitality and art to provide a unique set of experience for design professionals and consumers to explore Kohler’s global portfolio. Since its inception, KEC Singapore has supported numerous design projects and consumers from around the world, revolutionizing the retail experience in the kitchen and bath industry.
Having a strong belief in the concept of gracious living, KOHLER ensures that its products and services bring charm, good taste and generosity of spirit to the lives of its customers. Gracious living is also characterized by self-fulfilment and the enhancement of nature. With the KOHLER Experience Center in Singapore, Kohler hopes to continue inspiring and enhancing its customers’ sense of gracious living in the Asia Pacific region by reflecting this mission in its products and services.
In celebration of the first anniversary of KEC Singapore, Kohler launches fully functioning displays of the latest designs and product innovations such as the Sensis – KOHLER’s new intelligent toilet, KOHLER Konnect and KOHLER’s new Components line of interchangeable faucet elements.

Through the past 145 years, Kohler has been leading the way in design, innovation and craftsmanship. Recognized for its bold moves with colors, patterns and single level of quality above standards, Kohler remains a familiar name to architects, designers, tradespeople and consumers alike.
During the anniversary celebration, the KEC also displayed works from Kohler’s recent Charity Art Jamming event. Created by local architects, designers and two artists from Very Special Arts (VSA) Singapore, the official charity partner of Kohler, the masterpieces were sold exclusively to partners in the real estate industry from S$3,000 onwards for each art piece.
Overall, the full proceeds from the Charity Art Jamming Session will be used to support the special needs beneficiaries from VSA through the following initiatives:
• Weekly visual art programmes organized by VSA Singapore for the beneficiaries will be funded by Kohler.
• These programmes will last for a period of one year and will cost between S$1,500 to S$1,700 per year per beneficiary. This includes the cost of facilities, trainers and equipment, as well as teaching materials.
• Beneficiaries will be able to equip themselves with useful art skills such as learning the basics of drawing, color and composition, discovering the different mediums, and more.
