Kos was established in 1998, manufacturing whirlpool baths and multi-function shower cabins. Since 2001, the company's attested technical expertise in the sector has been complemented by the design and strategic experience of Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, art directors and authors of the entire collection. An important alliance, which in just a few years has engendered a unique and unprecedented collection of small architectural wonders for bathrooms: bath tubs, multi-function shower boxes, shower trays, wash basins with sculptural aesthetics and cutting-edge ergonomics, with which to reinvent the style and shape of your bathroom.
In just a few years, the Kos collection has won acclaim as an icon of the contemporary bathroom.
Products, outfittings, graphics and communication projects are fashioned according to a unique and strategic vision that over the years has made Kos an immediately recognizable brand, a leader in the international panorama.
The contemporary users targeted by Kos are people who love to surround themselves with objects that express their own personality and world, combining different experiences of taste and cross-cultural contaminations.
Well-being and pleasure become a part of everyday domestic living. There's a demand today for a global physical and sensory experience. People want to touch, and to savour emotions that relate to their body, to the feel of things. Essential lines, construction proportions, attention to detail and accurate finishing: all this identifies the Kos touch, a unique sensory experience, for the body and for the mind.
In 2007 Kos becomes part of the Zucchetti group: two leading brands in the international panorama of bathroom design, whose merger translates into a sole concept: the desire to exploit all the new opportunities offered by the bathroom world, creating products of coordinated design and strong personality, meeting different demands in taste, and capable of personalizing and redesigning an environment, while transforming it into a veritable statement of lifestyle.
"The Kos collections stem from a vision that aims to bring together quality of life and design; the Zucchetti collections traditionally interpret the contemporaneous and complex spirit of international society. Today the Zucchetti.Kos Group proposes a new bathroom dimension: complete, innovative, unprecedented. A new iconography that suggests alluring cultural melting pots, sensitivity to different tastes, poetic metropolitan influences. The bathroom world: no longer a ritual, but an experience" - explains Elena Zucchetti, architect, CEO of Zucchetti.Kos - "Rooted in 80 years of culture and expertise of the Zucchetti brand, and in the strength and dynamism of the Kos brand, this vision fashions innovative and exclusive icons of contemporary style".
Kos is aimed at a high-end, design-oriented market. Kos customers love to choose, they want to create their own very personal domestic scene, their living landscape.
