Kos

March 2021

Kos decides to open a new chapter in its history, presenting two brand new collections: Beam, designed by US based Visibility and Rise, signed by the Italian studio Zaven.

For the first time after many years of collaboration with a single design studio, Kos has begun new international partnerships to answer current lifestyle needs, effectively interpreting the brand’s new orientation.

Beam, signed by the US based studio Visibility, curiously combines archetypes of product design and architecture, in a contemporary idiom redefining the idea of the bathroom. The collection includes a countertop basin made of Biobased Cristalplant®, available in three different colours (in addition to the classic white, the warm new finishes terracotta and dove grey), with a container shelf, in natural wood, available in two sizes and two colours.

“Beam is a collection that aims to complete domestic environments to give personality and style to an object that will become part of people’s everyday life” say Joseph Guerra and Sina Sohrab, soul of Visibility, studio known for the ability and originality it brings to forming objects for ordinary everyday living, including items for the kitchen and bathroom.

In the design of the washbasin, Visibility evokes the image of a bowl or basin: ancestors of today’s washbasins recalling simple acts associated with nourishment and self-care, inspiring Beam’s simple, familiar shape. The basin is characterized by the presence of an internal ledge, meant to give more space to accessories or taps, with a functional and empathic language.
