Duravit wins two awards for its innovative products
The brand has won two sets of awards for the series Viu/XViu, D.1, SensoWash® Starck f and Starck T by two internationally renowned design juries – including Best of the Best award for Viu/XViu.
Duravit’s innovations shape the future of the bathroom. The products won over the independent international expert jury with their inventiveness and instinctive sense of design, quality and technology.
The Viu ceramic series and the associated XViu furniture program from Duravit and sieger design pave the way to the bathroom of the future. The interaction of soft, organic forms and precise geometry imbues a touch of post-industrial elegance with unrivalled levels of perfection. The series highlight is the c-bonded variant that seamlessly combines the ceramic basin and metal frame.
The design of the D.1 faucet range by Duravit in collaboration with Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez impresses with its unmistakable uniqueness and clear contours. With the D.1e electronic variant, state of the art technology has been integrated into the accentuated design for even greater operating comfort. The transition is dynamic and fluid, combining the basic cylindrical shape with the super-flat spout.
The new SensoWash® Starck f shower-toilets from Duravit and Philippe Starck feature impressively minimalistic design. The technology within all components has undergone further development and has been reorganised so that all technology is housed within the ceramic body. The flat seat with a height of just 40 mm and the white cover located behind it form a flush-mounted unit: contemporary design and comfort-enhancing technology in perfect harmony.
Starck T accessories epitomise the connection of functional rigour with organic forms. The stand-out design feature of the accessory series is the combination of the round base with the geometric “T-shape”, by means of which designer Philippe Starck evokes the branches of a tree. This iconic design element can be found on each of the 16 high-quality accessories.
