In 1998, Kos began producing whirlpool tubs and multifunctional shower cabins at its headquarters in Pordenone.To complement its proven technical skill in its sector, the company in 2001 decided to call upon the design talents and experience of internationally recognized designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba to design the company's entire collection of products and take charge of the art direction. They developed a project that can be called "total design"; that is, the products, exhibits, graphic and communication tools are developed in accordance with a single, specific vision. The productive, spirited relationship that developed between the company and the designers gave rise in only a few years to a inedited products collection which reinvented the bathroom setting in type and morphology . It did so with tubs that are large, but have a simple appearance which resemble a suspended sculpture; with modular shower cabins which look like small domestic architectural creations; with design washbasins and furniture elements... products that are universally recognized as icons of the contemporary bathroom.
