When Kohler wanted to redefine how customers approach kitchen renovations, they called on Envisa to create a configuration tool to allow prospective customers to plan their kitchen design including sink, faucet, countertop, wall color, and cabinet selections.  The initial project was deployed as an iPad-compatible solution for designers at the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show.

The Envisa Solution

Envisa designed and developed an iPad-optimized custom configuration tool that served as a centerpiece for the tradeshow showcase of Kohler products and possibilities. The architecture allowed a limitless number of unique scenes to be visualized while integrating with Kohler’s web store backend systems. See the Kohler Kitchen Planner in action.

Flexible Technical Architecture

The Kohler Kitchen Configurator solution optimized the ROI with a flexible, lightweight architecture that can be deployed on any of Kohler’s servers, and a configurator platform that can be used by other business lines in the future.
