As a brand with decades of history behind it, when designing a new shower control unit for Kohler, it is best to look back on what was successful about their classic designs and update them for modern tastes.
Many of the concept forms created at Deap were organic, requiring complex 3D modeling in SolidWorks to achieve a more natural look while still being manufacturable.
Drying rack v1
Originally a simple drying rack concept, my addition of a simple swinging arm allows for optimized and secure drying of wine glasses.
Drying rack v2
Redesigned based on feedback from Kohler to simplify the form of the first drying rack concept, while keeping the unique wine glass element.

THE FOREST SINK
The Forest Sink concept takes direct inspiration from natural elements of the American north: majestic trees with weathered bark, babbling brooks, cascading waterfalls... a meeting of the rough and smooth sides of the forest.
The form of the Leaf sink is driven by its intended location: outside. Leaf would reside near greenhouses, garden hoses, sheds, and back entrances to homes where a quick cleaning is needed.
