Clean Matte Vessel Lavatory

Kiwami Asymmetrical Vessel Lavatory
Graceful and refined, TOTO’s new Kiwami Asymmetrical Vessel Lavatory’s deliberately off-balance design celebrates the sculptural beauty and subtle grace of Nature’s elliptical shapes, inspiring an authenticity and connection to the essence of understated design. Reminiscent of hand-thrown Japanese pottery, this uniquely shaped minimalist vessel lavatory’s freeform design will enhance any bath.

Although eye-catchingly thin-walled, the new Kiwami’s vessel’s asymmetrical design is extremely strong. Along the thinnest part of the lavatory’s frame, the LINEARCERAM is approximately half the thickness of a conventional basin wall. At the same time, however, this unique TOTO material has almost twice the tensile strength of fireclay. The new Kiwami vessel features CEFIONTECT glaze, TOTO's proprietary technology for preventing debris from sticking to surfaces and ensuring easy cleaning. CEFIONTECT technology also offers superior durability for long-term use.

The new Kiwami Asymmetrical Vessel Lavatory also offers TOTO new CLEAN MATTE surface finishing technology, which creates an elegant, silky light texture that consumers will want to touch and makes it extremely easy to clean.

New Faucet Finishes
In addition to Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel and Polished Nickel, TOTO’s new faucet families are available in two new finishes to add rich accents to the sophisticated design statements in any bath space – Polished French Gold and Polished Bronze. Select faucets and tub fillers models may also be ordered with a split finish design that combines polished and brushed finishes.
