Interpretative Takes on 20th Century Design For Whole-Home Options
KOHLER, Wis., Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Unveiled as part of the 2022 KOHLER Lighting introductions are two contemporary collections – Kraga and Tone – each inspired by the understated, elegance and clean lines of Mid-Century Modern design. Kraga and Tone embrace the movement's principles of form, function, and scale, celebrating the revolutionary shift from the earlier, decorative ornamentation, and instead exploring the organic beauty of handcraft and the expressive, fluid art works this period in design brought to the world.
The Kohler Lighting portfolio presents a range of whole home solutions from traditional to contemporary in scope. The Tone and Kraga designs are no exception, offering customers an artful compilation of sconces, pendants, flush-mounts, and chandeliers. The Tone Lighting also incorporates many of the same design elements as the Kohler Tone Kitchen and Bathroom Faucet Collections, allowing customers to create cohesive, beautifully finish-matched interiors in a one-stop shopping experience.
The Kraga Collection
Kraga is a sophisticated collection that marries tailored line with geometric form, nodding to the works of such iconic 20th century Modern Italian designers as Achille Castiglioni, Gae Aulenti, and Joe Colombo. Sculptural, with a visual presence that is edgy and bold, the designs are intentionally devoid of unnecessary decorative elements, relying instead on the purity of pared down form and hand-selected materials. The Kraga collection includes a One-Light Flush-Mount, a One-Light Sconce, a One-LKohleright Pendant, a Five-Light Linear Chandelier, and a Five-Light Chandelier.
Crafted from smooth, cast metal frames fitted with glowing, cast-glass, creamy white globes, each Kraga lighting design have its own unique personality and individual flair. The straightforward metalwork frames effect the appropriate visual tension against the sleek, pearly surface of the glossy, translucent orbs, with the opaque glass emitting a warm glow that illuminates from within.
The Tone Collection
The Tone Collection features uncluttered shapes and clean lines, expertly crafted with multiple metal shade choices, including combination finishes, to complement surroundings, while also making thoughtful, effective use of space. Loosely referencing the sculptural works by Finnish-American architect, Eero Saarinen, whose revolutionary designs include the coveted Tulip Table, its teardrop form and graceful shape evoking a natural elegance that inspired the sculpted simplicity that is infused throughout the Tone designs.
The striking glass and brass Tone Collection is minimalistic in approach, evoking an unmistakable warmth and air of understated sophistication. The Tone Collection features a One-Light Sconce, a Two-Light Sconce, and a Three-Light Sconce, a One-Light Flush Mount, a One-Light Pendant, a Four-Light Chandelier, and an Eight-Light Linear Chandelier. Tone Lighting is available in a variety of colorways including two mixed metal finishes – Matte Black and Polished Chrome or Matte Black and Brushed Moderne Brass – to perfectly pair with Tone faucet designs, or any of the Kohler kitchen and bathroom modern or transitional collections.
All KOHLER Lighting designs are quality tested to ensure that each light fixture will remain beautiful even after years of repeated exposure to damp environments. There is also a simplicity thoughtfully designed into each, from easy installation and color-matched finishes to diffusers for soft, ambient light. The result is a compelling assortment of lighting to fit most lifestyles and budgets.

KOHLER Lighting can be purchased through KOHLER Signature Stores and KOHLER Experience Centers, and select KOHLER distributors, or online at http://www.us.kohler.com.
