The Kohler Design Center is a three-level showcase of innovative
product design and technology, creative achievement and American
history. A fusion of old and new, the space offers a comprehensive

A source of inspiration for more than 150,000 consumers, builders,
architects and designers each year, the Kohler Design Center, with its
three levels, is a curious mix of past, present and future.
The building was originally used as a recreation hall for residents
of the Village of Kohler. In 1985 it was transformed into a
36,000-square-foot showcase for the extensive array of quality products
offered by the Kohler family of businesses. Every detail is presented
with energy and innovation to reinforce the company's image as a leader
in technology, color and style.
