Listen to Your Medicine Cabinet
Humanfactors helped Kohler elevate the utilitarian medicine cabinet from a mirrored repository of excess toothbrushes and old shaving cream cans into a modern, purpose-driven product, providing users with cold storage, digital media, and aesthetics befitting a proper lavatory. Conventional medicine cabinets were specially engineered to provide refrigeration for the ever-increasing organic bath-and-body market. Experimentation with the mirror surface itself allowed for an integrated LCD screen to provide users with the morning news. Task lighting was designed not only for usability and efficacy, but also to bathe the bathroom environment with style and elegance.
