Design, engineering and pure ingenuity come together in a new faucet finish from Kohler: Vintage nickel.
The company made the announcement on their LinkedIn page and offered a sneak peek of what a faucet will look like when products hit the market.
“We’re adding a new finish to our KOHLER faucet line this summer, and here’s a sneak peek. Introducing Vintage Nickel, with an antique vibe thanks to a unique development and production process by our innovative industrial designers and process engineers,” the post reads.
Vintage nickel is made possible by taking nickel-plated pieces and running them through a machine that Kohler describes as a “blender with rocks” to create the worn, textured finish you see in the photo.
“The complexity of this finish is what makes it unique—a combination of mechanical finishing, chemical and powder coating,” engineer Mohammad Omari is quoted as saying.
Stay tuned for when the Kohler vintage nickel finish is available on eFaucets.com.
