At its headquarters in Hornberg, Duravit unveiled 14 bathroom products, it is set to show at the ISH exhibition from March 15-17, under the theme 'it's magic'.
Created by six design houses, including the addition of Russian designers Sergei Tchoban and Matteo Thun, “We have never had so many designer products at the same time”, expressed Duravit CEO Franz Kook.
Tchoban reflected the trend for ‘New Opulence’ with the introduction of Esplanade, a bathroom suite with items designed to look like antique furniture. The WC had been designed to resemble an antique chair, while the bath took on the appearance of a chaise longue.
Created for commercial projects, Matteo Thun designed the Onto range, which had been created for quick assembly and to last for 15 years. It echoes his design philosophy of ‘high design and no use-by-date’.
There were updates to ranges too. Sieger Design returned to update its Darling suite, with the introduction of Darling New and Philippe Starck also revisited Starck 1, offering a variety of countertop basins, plus cylindrical and cuboid underpedestal cupboard to add to his barrel form. Eoos Design rethought the Paiora bath, originally designed eight years ago.
However, among the highlights of the launch was the Starck St Tropez steam shower, taking up just 1sqm of space and Open Space shower enclosure. Created by Eoos Design, the enclosure walls folded back to the walls to offer additional space in the background.
