The American kitchen and bath products brand was founded in 1873 and is headquartered in Kohler, Wisconsin.

Kohler Co. partnered with American artist  Daniel Arsham to conceive the commemorative 150th anniversary identity through logos and marks, typography, and lettering to meld the company’s storied heritage with its “leading boldly” approach to the future.

Kohler Co., founded in 1873 and headquartered in Kohler, Wisconsin, is one of America’s oldest and largest privately held companies comprised of more than 40,000 people with more than 50 manufacturing locations worldwide.

The KOHLER brand, known for its kitchen and bath products, is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a series of special events around the world, including limited-edition product releases, commemorative apparel, and storytelling through digital content – all captured under an anniversary theme of Come All Creators.

“Bold moves and an entrepreneurial spirit are in our DNA and have deep meaning within our organization – starting with our founder John Michael Kohler who formed our company in Wisconsin together with an immigrant workforce creating new and better lives for their families,” said Chair and CEO David Kohler in a media release. He is the fourth generation of Kohler family leadership, and only the ninth person to lead the company.
