Kohler: Thai Sink


I was asked by Kohler to design graphics for an oval sink to commemorate an anniversary of some kind of their line in Thailand. So this was specifically for the Thai market. My first design was asymmetric and contained an elephant head, which is a special symbol to Thais.

This was the final design that made it to market. Sadly, I have never seen an actual one of these sinks or been able to locate one on the internet. These photos from Kohler are all that I’ve ever seen of the final product.
