New Collections and Modern Updates Highlight Duravit’s Ability to Maximize Square Footage without Compromising Design
“Our latest releases embody Duravit’s mission of bringing the highest material quality and top-tier design into any and every bathroom,” explains Duravit USA President Tim Schroeder. “We recognized a market need for compact pieces complemented with a bold look, and sought to expand our offerings and options for guest bathrooms, city apartments, hotel rooms, and more.”
Scaling down a classic, Duravit has expanded its iconic Cape Cod collection by Philippe Starck with Cape Cod Guest - a line of brand-new, compact designs that can accommodate any bathroom. Cape Cod Guest exudes the same aesthetic as its predecessor but is now available with a narrower furniture vanity and mirror, bringing larger-than-life design into smaller spaces.
Philippe Starck originally crafted the Cape Cod bathroom range in 2015 with the relaxed elegance of New England in mind. Cape Cod Guest preserves this same sense of refinement with the vanity’s high-gloss white top, chrome feet, and a proportionate above-counter basin (27 ½” x 19”). Made with expertly crafted DuraCeram®, the washbasin is available in Glossy White and a new White Satin Matt. Cape Cod Guest rounds out its 2019 offerings with a narrower mirror option (17 ¾” x 1 ¾”) available with optional LED lighting. Matching Cape Cod’s original modern look, the new mirror pairs seamlessly with the furniture.
The Viu/XViu collections optimize square footage with vertical storage units, thoughtful shelving, and savvy dimensions. Launched in 2019, XViu’s storage cabinets maximize unused space with their tall units in varying depths (9 ½” or 14”). XViu models are equally eye-catching and space-saving with their glass shelving and a semi-transparent, smoked glass door. For the furniture vanities, XViu is offered in compact dimensions as floorstanding (17” x 12”) or the even narrower wall-mounted (16” x 11”).
Duravit also offers numerous toilets with a shorter depth, ideal for smaller bathrooms. Models from the 2019 Viu series, or the fan-favorite ME by Starck, can provide a way to accommodate tinier spaces. For an extra element of luxury, shower-toilet seats - like the new SensoWash® Slim model for Viu - add a variety of wellness benefits without compromising any additional space.
In keeping bathroom design compact and minimal, Duravit’s Starck Slimline shower trays require limited space and offer a low rim height for an uninterrupted look (the rim height has been reduced to 3/4") and the tray is available in a smaller size of 35 ⅜" x 31 ½”.
