The minimalist Vault drop in sink has replaced two highly styled stainless predecessors.
Drop in sinks are generally out of favor for high-end kitchens because their borders sit on the counter rather than under it. And resistance to the price of two stylish drop in sinks have led Kohler to discontinue them. Those “fancy” drop ins — – Kohler’s Verve and Verity — were the original subject of this post because they were good, if expensive, options for wood and laminate counters.
The newest look for drop in sinks is the ultra minimalist Kohler Vault. It’s zero-radius to be exact — meaning square edges and a square bowl. Designed to be used as a modern option in a traditional kitchen as well as in kitchens with a more modern aesthetic, it’s a handsome sink with a substantial flat rim and space for an integral faucet in back. It’s also flexible as it can be mounted under the counter as well.
I disagree with the choice of faucets shown with the Vault sink (above). I would prefer something more contemporary such as the popular Karbon.
The classic Purist faucet also would look great with a sink like the Vault. Even very traditional kitchens are now mixing ultra modern fixtures — the Vault looks like it would fit that niche.
Kohler’s sculptural Verve had been was used in a House Beautiful kitchen of the year.
The Verity had a deep collar that gave it the look of a shallow vessel sink with an integral faucet.
