Inspired by Manchester United’s three historic victories that forged the path to the iconic Treble title, Kohler Co., a global lifestyle brand, introduces a limited-edition vessel and faucet combination commemorating the achievements of the club’s 1998-1999 season. Coinciding with Manchester United’s legends match on the 20th anniversary of the club’s victory over FC Bayern, the Treble Collection celebrates a triumphant season with the ultimate expression of passion and support for Manchester United.
A statement of gracious living and success, the design of the Treble Collection was meticulously crafted in partnership with Thomas Lyte, Goldsmiths and Silversmiths to Her Majesty the Queen. Ideal for luxurious bathrooms and private bar spaces, the exclusive collection is forged from solid sterling silver and 24K gold plate, with each vessel and matching KOHLER Composed faucet hand-engraved with bespoke artwork and numbered for authenticity. Each collection is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Manchester United legends and members of the Treble team Andrew Cole, Dwight Yorke, Denis Irwin, as well as David Kohler.
“Creating unique products of quality and distinction is our passion,” said David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co. “We’re honored to celebrate such a tremendous moment in Manchester United’s history in a way that combines the spirit of competition, innovation, and craftsmanship.”
The front of the collection vessel displays the Manchester United team emblem engraved with the title “League Winners, 16 May 1999”. Continuing the exquisite detail and artistry, the sides of the vessel commemorate the European and FA Cup championships, respectively, and the total number of goals – 123 – for all three of Manchester United’s championships.
“Our partnership with Kohler allows us to engage with our fans through the lens of design and product innovation, and the launch of the Treble Collection is an exciting first step,” said Richard Arnold, group managing director of Manchester United.
In 2018, Manchester United and Kohler entered into a multi-year global partnership, with the KOHLER brand logo featured on the sleeve of the iconic shirts, for both the men’s and women’s teams. The partnership also includes joint participation on game day activities, innovative improvements to club facilities, global sustainability and social responsibility projects and other partner collaborations with Manchester United fans and Kohler customers and associates.
