“Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”
Preparations in Milan are running at full speed: EXPO Milano 2015 will take place in Italian's fashion capital from 1 May to 31 October 2015. Designer bathroom outfitter Duravit will be present and will set the bathrooms in the German Pavilion with sustainable products by Matteo Thun.

The central theme of EXPO Milano 2015 is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” and it offers answers to the future challenges of the global food supply. Designed as a “sustainable agro-food park”, the exhibition foregoes imposing monumental structures. The German Pavilion, called 'Fields of Ideas', is open, warm, friendly and whimsical, highlighting its motto ‘Be active!’ Visitors will gain an insight into innovative visions from Germany for the future of food.

DuraStyle Urinals
As a supplier with its own showroom in Milan, Duravit was involved in the planning from an early stage and, when equipping the bathrooms, is placing a particular focus on sustainable product ideas. One example is the DuraStyle Rimless toilet that offers perfect flushing of the inside surface, even with very small volumes of water.

DuraStyle rimless
The sustainable use of water is also top of the agenda in the DuraStyle urinals: the urinals only need 0.5 to 2.1 litres of water, depending on the flushing programme. The SensoWash shower-toilet seat complements the rimless technology, offering gentle cleansing after using the toilet for added personal comfort.
