Duravit wins plaudits at both the iF DESIGN AWARD 2020 and Red Dot Award – including Best of the Best for Viu/XViu
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 unrivaled levels of perfection. The series highlight is the c-bonded variant that seamlessly combines the ceramic basin and metal frame.
Available soon for North America: 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 reorganized 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 epitomize the connection of functional rigor 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.
