Like much of Arsham’s work, Rock.01 pays homage to time. The basin is made of 3D-printed glass china and hand-cast brass and combines modern technology with Kohler’s almost 148-year manufacturing tradition to create what can only be described as functional high art. The effects of time are reflected in the patina of the “rock” made of brass and are achieved through a forced process.
Kohler’s revolutionary method of 3D printing vitreous porcelain is at the forefront of innovation in the industry, and the technology itself made it possible to produce Daniel’s design that was too complex to be made using traditional methods.
“Rock.01 combines the future of 3D printing technology with the most fundamental methods of manual brass casting. It is literally the new that rests on the old, and I find that incredibly poetic. Kohler was the ideal partner to create such a complex and futuristic one Bringing design to life, “said Arsham.
Arsham’s collaboration with Kohler reflects the company’s longstanding commitment to the arts. Since 1873, Kohler has made it his business to contribute to cultivated life through design, handicrafts and innovation at the highest level.
Arsham will join David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co., at the digital event Kohler Living on November 4th discuss how technology and digital media create new ways of expression and provide an overview of this collaboration.
