KALLISTA® INTRODUCES NEW ADDITIONS TO ITS ONE™ COLLECTION

KOHLER, Wis. (April 24, 2012) – Adding to its successful One collection, Kallista unveiled four new products for the bath at the 2012 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Chicago. A freestanding bathtub, a freestanding bath faucet, a single control lavatory faucet and a wall-mounted single control faucet all share the same clean, minimalist design aesthetic as other well-received One products.

The One Freestanding Bath combines strict exterior lines and subtle interior curves to create a shape that is inviting and elegant in its simplicity. The proportions are substantial without being overwhelming and the design is thoughtful, taking all of a bather's needs into consideration. There is a slotted overflow that allows for a deep soaking experience, and the bath's generous size – 72" x 40" – and centered side drain allow for two bathers to relax comfortably. It is available with either Stucco White or Linen finish.

An ideal accompaniment for the One Bath is the ONE Freestanding Bath Filler, which shares the same crisp lines and refinement as rest of the One line. With a floor mount installation, straightforward 11 7/8" spout and coordinating hand shower with separate bracket, everything bathers could need is at their fingertips. Solid brass construction ensures long-term durability and reliability. The One Bath Filler is available in Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel, and Gunmetal Kallista Living Finishes, a trademark finish designed to patina over time and wear naturally, giving each piece its own unique warmth and character.

Inspired by forms found in nature, the new One Single Control Faucet has scaled-back, feminine proportions and curves. Because part of the natural world's appeal lies in its charming dissimilarities, the design has a deliberately imperfect flair at the faucet mouth. The handle is straightforward to use and feels good in the hand. With its high arched spout, clean-lined handle, and seamless design, the faucet's simplicity feels fresh and of the moment.

A modern and inspired choice for a master bath, bar or powder room, the One Single Control Faucet is available in four Kallista living finishes: Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel and Gunmetal. It is also WaterSense listed with a maximum flow rate of 1.5 gpm, making it an ecologically considerate choice. The solid brass construction means that the One Single Control Faucet will stand the test of time wherever it is installed.

The final new addition to the One Collection is the ingenious One Wall-Mounted Single Control Basin Set. Its seamless 8 5/8" brass spout is accompanied by a single control in the form of a joystick valve, a one-piece, self-contained ceramic disk valve that controls both temperature and volume. This inspired design is intuitive to use but includes red and blue temperature indicator markings for visual reminders. It is the ultimate in sleek, original design and it shares the same solid brass construction as other pieces in the One line, ensuring that no matter how much the usage, it will perform beautifully every time.

Also in line with the other new pieces, the One Wall-Mounted Single Control Basin Set is available in the same four living finishes: Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel and Gunmetal. It is also WaterSense listed with a maximum flow rate of 1.5 gpm.
