Duravit had a special mention at the 2018 German Design Awards from Brioso bathroom furniture range and three winner accolades for the XSquare, Shower&Bath and Dura System series.
The special mention recognises works with designs demonstrating particularly successful details or solutions. This award honours the commitment of both companies and designers.
Designer Christian Werner has created a range of furniture, with Duravit, that represents relaxation for contemporary bathroom interiors. Its features include a precise geometry produced by slender cabinet frames that form the edge of the furniture, mirrors and mirror cabinets.
Duravit created the XSquare furniture range with Kurt Merki Jr. to match the style of the DuraSquare washbasins. The quadrant-shaped chrome profile which edges the furniture emphasises the striking design. While on the floor-standing model the chrome profile accentuates the frame of both variants.
The Shower&Bath unites a contemporary idea with creative use of space: the design by EOOS features a walk-in shower and bathtub, whilst the integrated glass door turns the bathtub quickly and easily into an open shower with straightforward access.
With the DuraSystem installation frames, Duravit offers and entire range of bathroom fittings, in front of and behind the wall, from a single source. The electronic ‘A2’ sensor plate in white glass permits contract-free operation.
The German Design Award is an international prize given by the Rat für Formgebung (Council for Design). Submissions in product and communication design are recognised each year and judged on its own way a pioneer in the international design landscape.
