Kohler's CES lineup includes a $6,235 ceiling faucet

Home
Speaker 1: It's CES and Kohl's got weird faucets and stuff. Cuz of course they do including a kitchen faucet that hangs from your ceiling for some reason. And we're talking about that and everything else they announced right now. Speaker 1: So I'm gonna venture a guest that Kohler just kind of gets CES. This is the second year in a row that they've introduced something [00:00:30] that is ridiculous, but cool. And then they use that to bring attention to their products while they roll out less exciting, but actually functional stuff. The ordinary stuff this year includes a touchless bathroom faucet that actually has a reasonable price. They're actually rolling out their perfect filled bathtub. It's expensive, but seems kind of useful. We'll talk about their cool new shower fixtures. They're actually rolling out the stillness [00:01:00] bath from year. And of course the headliner for this year, a kitchen faucet that hangs from the ceiling and costs $6,000. Speaker 1: So let's talk about that purest kitchen faucet. It costs between roughly 4,000 and roughly 6,000, depending on what finish you go with. And did I mention it hangs from the ceiling? Why I, I honestly have no idea [00:01:30] from the design. It reminds me of those restaurant kitchens, you know, the industrial ones that have the overhead spray handle to spray down the dishes. And this one does come with a fancy looking puck. You can use to turn the faucet on and off. And then on the faucet itself, you can turn it off. You can control the pressure. You can change the spray pattern, but again, why in theory, if you're gonna get this $6,000, there is a basin, obviously [00:02:00] see, you won't have to change some of the plumbing, but I really doubt that price tag also includes the water line necessary that you're going to have to run to your kitchen ceiling for a faucet to hang from it. Is it raining in here or is that just my sink? Speaker 1: I don't understand this one. I don't get how it's going to be helpful or even particularly stylish aside from the fact that it's unique, the handle will be weighted. So it won't waiver around [00:02:30] while it's spraying water. Thank goodness. And supposedly you can change the height and it will stay where you last put it. So they're putting some thought into functionality still. Don't get it on the act useful side of things. They're rolling out a $200 touchless bathroom faucet. They've had touchless kitchen faucets for a while. They've promised touchless bathroom faucets. They're rolling it out. And it's reasonably priced. We sort of [00:03:00] have a love, hate relationship with the kitchen version of this same product. So approach with caution, but at least this one won't break the bank. And I actually understand the cool use case. Speaker 1: Next up the perfect filled bathtub is finally launch. This one is expensive $2,700, but at least it doesn't have to hang from your ceiling. Maybe they're gonna roll that one out next year. This is an ordinary [00:03:30] bathtub. It installs. And then what it'll do is remotely with an app or a voice command. You can tell it to fill a certain depth and at a certain temperature. And it'll do that for you perfectly in theory, going by the name. So again expensive, but it does seem useful to be able to get your bath ready while you're still cleaning up from dinner and then be able to relax and chill for the evening. Otherwise they've [00:04:00] got new shower heads called the statement collection along with fancy valves to control your shower called Anthem. They partnered with a company called Roburn on a digital lockbox that you can use for a fancy medicine cabinet. Speaker 1: Oh, and the stillness bath is coming to market too. I mentioned that Kohler likes to show off ridiculous things at CES. Here was their headliner from last year. It's a square bathtub modeled after the practice of [00:04:30] Japanese forest bathing that's that is a real sentence. That's what they actually did here. And it does look fancy there's colored lights. You can do an infinity hub thing where it overflows into wood grading beneath the tub. It fills up from the bottom. It's got all the smarts. It comes in multiple configurations ranging from six to $16,000. So again, my goodness, if you want to forgo that used [00:05:00] car, how a bathtub, but at least with this one, I understand the style and the luxury of it. So it's expensive, but I get it more than I get ceiling fossil. We've got more details on it in our video from last year, you can find that link right up here. Speaker 1: The important thing to know now is that you're going to be able to buy the stillness bath this year if you want it, but does anyone actually want it? That's my question. Is anyone [00:05:30] actually going to buy a ceiling faucet or a $16,000 bathtub? Again, I actually appreciate Kohler's strategy here. They're introducing these things as, as inspirational items, drawing our attention and then showing up, oh, while you're here, maybe a reasonable $200 touchless bathroom faucet that wouldn't be exciting or noteworthy otherwise, but that you might actually use. So I get it. I get what they're doing, but [00:06:00] I am curious if anyone's actually going to get any of these crazy items. Are you going to run your water line up to the ceiling for that kitchen faucet? Do you want to pay that much? Just to have a nice luxury bathtub? If so, please comment below and let me know that, but then you have to follow through once it's actually out there. Tweet me. Here's my handle. I wanna see a picture. I want to know that you actually do this and have this in your home. I will be suitably [00:06:30] impressed. Thank you very much for watching. Please hit that thumbs up button and subscribe to that's YouTube channel for more luxury, crazy items from CES, maybe more useful stuff too. We'll find out.
