The characteristic of the ceramic container is that water is poured from the bottom of the bathtub, and then poured from the top into the surrounding cypress moat. The sound is soothing, while the overflowing water is reheated and reintroduced into the bathtub, so it maintains a constant temperature.
Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, is introduced through full-spectrum lighting that surrounds the bathtub. Kohler said at the press conference: “Then, the mist enveloped the surface of the still water bath, allowing the bather to immerse in a feeling of deep relaxation.”
An optional experience tower that can be installed on the side of the bathtub will release essential oils to further stimulate the senses. The bathtub can also be controlled by the Kohler Konnect application to customize settings and use voice control for contactless operation.
