Numi 2.0 also features high-quality speakers, which can be paired with a user's devices, as well as a lighting system that can react to music.

The toilet also includes Amazon's Alexa home assistant built-in, offering voice control functionality. The toilet's technological features can also be personalised by using the Kohler Konnect iOS and Android app.

Kohler's Innate toilet includes adjustable bidet options, including water pressure and temperature control, and the toilet is designed to clean itself using UV light. It can also be controlled using a handheld remote and includes an automatic lid, automatic deodorisation and an automatic flush. The toilet also features a built-in nightlight, a warm air dryer and an emergency back-up flush.

The Veil toilet features a contemporary, unobtrusive ovoid design, incorporating Kohler's ergonomic French Curve toilet seat. Veil also includes a hands-free automatic seat and touchscreen remote and includes a multi-functional bidet with self-cleaning features.

The remote can adjust bidet comfort features, a heated seat, dryer, deodoriser, nightlight and flush control. Veil's dual jet flush system will save 6,000 gallons of water annually when compared to a standard 1.6-gallon toilet, according to Kohler.

"Kohler has been a leader in the development of bidets, intelligent toilets and cleansing seats for decades in the global marketplace," said Kohler Group President Larry Yuen.

"Utilizing our design and engineering talents from across the world, we are able to incorporate more meaningful and thoughtful functionality into our product line up and offer a more robust collection."

Founded in Wisconsin and now seeing over 50 manufacturing locations, Kohler specialises in bathroom and kitchen products.

The company also creates furniture, tiles, engines, and generators, and also operates luxury resorts and golf courses as part of its Destination Kohler brand.
