As an architect, he is internationally successful. He designed the Federation Tower in Moscow, the highest skyscraper in Europe and also the AquaDom in Berlin, the largest free-standing aquarium in the world. Sergei Tchoban has now designed a bathroom range for Duravit: Esplanade – luxurious, spacious and visually impressive. Tchoban deliberately plays with the splendour of times gone by paired with a touch of irony. So it is no coincidence that the fl oorstanding toilet resembles an ancient chair, the washbasin a chest of drawers and the bathtub a chaise longue. The Esplanade furniture is available in two completely different styles. Either in exquisite silk or comfortable oak wood panelling, blending the bathroom beautifully with the living area.
