Tulum represents Philippe Starck’s second tap series for Duravit.
The taps are extremely adaptable, and slot into a variety of bathroom interiors, harmonising with numerous ceramic series. Positioned in the mid-price range, the tap series is guaranteed by Duravit for five years.
Iconic and timeless design
For Philippe Starck, means longevity of objects, today this is one of the most important parameters when designing, not only on a material level but a cultural and emotional one to. He employs this concept within the design of Tulum via a successful symbiosis of minimalism and elegance. The slim, rectangular geometries of the spout and handle emerge from the conical body in an exact parallel. The combination of round and angular elements means that the taps can be matched with organically shaped or angular sanitary objects. The flat spout is the same width as the long, lever-style handle. It guarantees that water volume and temperature can be set easily and precisely. Available in two finishes – Chrome and Matt Black – Tulum synchronises with the Starck T accessories series, itself designed by Philippe Starck.
Broad program for individual solutions
From the compact washbasin taps for the small guest bathroom through to the extra-high models that can be combined with wash bowls, Tulum by Starck offers the perfect solution. The washbasin mixers are available in a range of heights: S, M, and XL. The range can be installed in other areas of the bathroom – bidet, shower, and bathtub: from exposed to concealed installation through to the freestanding bathtub mixer. The showerhead portfolio includes matching hand showers and showerheads in a range of sizes and design variants, from round to rectangular or as a stick shower.
Impressive quality and functionality
Tulum makes a durable impression in both visual and tactile terms and holds its own in terms of quality with long-lasting ceramic cartridges and perfectly finished surfaces that are easy to clean. The integrated aerator enriches the water jet with air and generates a gentle spray pattern. The flow rate is just 5 l/min.
The washbasin mixers with the energy-saving FreshStart function are available in sizes S and M. Initially, only cold-water flows in the central position. Hot water is only added when the user deliberately moves the handle to the left. The Duravit BlueBox, a universal installation system for a range of tap designs (lever mixers or thermostats), is used for concealed installation. This allows the design decision to be taken even after the basic set has been installed.
