KOHLER, Wis. (February 13, 2008) – Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, unveiled a new tall spout faucet and thermostatic, volume and three-way transfer trim and valves to its One collection of sophisticated bath products and accessories at the 2008 International Builders Show in Orlando, Fla. Modern in its design approach, One offers a versatile range of options and components for almost every conceivable bathroom plumbing configurations.

The latest to join this innovative line is the One Tall Spout Deck Mount Bath Set. Following the same design aesthetic of the One Low Spout, the newly introduced, One Tall Spout, completes the collection's basin set and bath filler options. This new spout gives the homeowner more vertical space for washing, and is ideal for powder rooms and bathrooms that feature above the counter basins.

For the shower, One rounds out it's showering offering with thermostatic, volume control and a three-way transfer trim. These new showering components, coupled with Kallista's new Kohler-technology driven valves, allow homeowners to customize their shower environment making the master bath the favorite room in the house.

Recognizing the value of timeless designs, Kallista continues to explore new avenues in bath design to reach out to a larger audience with products that translate effectively into residential and commercial applications. “The functional performance of this line is second to none, incorporating Kohler's latest valve technology,” said John Hart, chief merchandising officer - ANN SACKS & Kallista. “Although minimal in design, the forms avoid being cold or clinical thanks to careful attention to proportion and thoughtfully forged handles.”

Offered in Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel, and Polished Chrome, One offers complete bath and showering systems. Featuring high or low spout faucet options, the basin sets can be deck installed or wall mounted and matched with cross or lever handles. For the bath, One offers wall and deck bath spouts, single and multi-function hand showers, a wall-mounted showerhead, an optional 12-inch raindome, and complementing wall valves fitted with cross or lever handles.
