New Product: Morphing by KOS

We are very excited to announce that Candana will be the exclusive Australian suppliers of the stunning Italian bathroom brand, KOS.

The Morphing range is currently on display at our Woollahra showroom and it is one of the most popular pieces we've had so far!

The range includes everything from freestanding baths (in many configurations) to accessories like freestanding towel holders and mirrors. They've very cleverly incorporated beautiful finishes such as Cristalplant and steel into the designs and feature some of the most detailed joinery we've come across.

 Designed by world renowned designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, the range is sculptural and sophisticated. 
Morphing embodies a blend of tradition and contemporary aesthetics, new materials and echoes of classic styles.

Visit our website for more information on the range.
