The Starting Point
Early success can be attributed to Pontin and Bell's unwavering commitment to "the best." Meaning, only the most skilled craftsmen were represented by KALLISTA. And with its first showroom in San Francisco, a reputation for custom finishes and materials grew. Eventually, its product innovations would revolutionize bath design as it was universally known.
A Growing Portfolio
Acquired by Kohler Co. in the late 1980's, KALLISTA and its diverse luxury portfolio began to flourish. Instant icons like the solid copper Archeo® tub and the cast iron Circe™ tub symbolized the brand's timeless appeal. KALLISTA gained even more prominence by collaborating with independent artists and luxury brands for exclusive collections.
