As a principal partner of Manchester United, Kohler continues to be inspired by the team’s rich traditions and pursuit of perfection. Here’s a sneak peek at a bathroom design that finds its muse in the team’s home jerseys…


Colour Inspirations

Taking obvious clues from the team’s dynamic red and black colours, Kohler embraces the uniform’s vibrancy and energy while also embodying the calming and relaxing state that master bathrooms inherently strive for. Mahogany tiles paired with matte black faucets highlight the team’s iconic kit colours, creating an intense colour pairing. The faucets’ industrial-style handles, tube spouts and accessories simultaneously give a nod to Manchester’s industrial heritage.

Patterns And Shapes

Details like the star pattern and gold thread used in the kit’s iconic patch inspired small details that juxtapose the bathroom’s minimalism design with tactile warmth. To balance the strong vertical lines of the Reve freestanding bath and Numi intelligent toilet, choose a round light fixture and Vox® sink – the shape of which signifies the unity, harmony and commitment that the team exemplifies.

Play With Texture

Inspired by Kohler’s commitment to sustainability, and an idea that mirrors the perseverance required for every Manchester United win, the tile, using recycled materials from the Kohler WasteLAB, embraces this concept. Each hand-cut tile features a unique crackle pattern that leads into the organic patterns of the stone bath feature wall, the distressed metal window casing and the rough exposed concrete ceiling structure.

Include Tech

To create an oasis of relaxation, add elements of technology including a Verdera Voice lighted mirror, DTV+ shower controls and a Numi intelligent toilet. Technology’s ability to transform the routine into the magical highlights another connection between Kohler and Manchester United – two brands that are built on years of technical evolution.
