Duravit’s extended DuraSquare series represents the fusion of minimal design with subtly integrated storage space. New additions to the range include extra washbasin sizes, an asymmetric washbasin and a double washbasin, each of which can be combined with a vanity unit or metal console. Different combination options with the XSquare furniture range are testament to DuraSquare’s versatility and convenient storage possibilities.
Small floor plans do not mean you need to compromise on design freedom. With a creative layout and high-quality designer products, guest bathrooms and cloakrooms can be transformed into oases of luxury. Where floor space is at a premium, the focus is on products in compact dimensions and their arrangement within the room.
When the summer with all its vivid colors starts to fade, the color combination of black, white and gray provides a welcome contrast. This triad of complementary shades blends perfectly with the cool clarity of autumn and winter. Add selected accessories and matching materials and this wintry look becomes a timeless favorite. Light and reddish woods are an especially good match – a design option that fulfills the desire for warmth during the colder seasons.
Matt surfaces make a wide range of new design options possible in the bathroom. Their velvety finish exudes a sophisticated elegance and creates contrasts with glossy individual pieces or colored areas.
A quick freshen-up or soothing relaxation – a perfect shower area offers both. The trend in new buildings and modernizations is moving towards generously proportioned, preferably flush-fit walk-in shower areas that offer comfort and safety in equal measure. With the right planning and product selection, the shower zone can become the favorite part of the bathroom.
A comfortable bathroom doesn’t need a lot of space – what matters are creative ideas and the right products. There are numerous different ways to create additional storage space in the bathroom and find a home for everyday bathroom items both large and small.

Duravit contributes to an innovative toilet concept in the Black Forest. A new-style sanitary facility in the center of the popular resort of Titisee was opened in April by Hochschwarzwald Tourismus GmbH. The brainchild of Managing Director Thorsten Rudolph and fully fitted out with Duravit products, it offers state-of-the-art hygiene and convenience for the ever-growing number of international bus tourists that visit the town. With over 400,000 international guests in 2018 – several thousand visitors a day – a creative and future-proof solution was required.
She was a master of organic architecture and the first woman to be awarded the coveted Pritzker Prize, the Nobel Prize of architecture. Today, all over the world, Zaha Hadid's buildings spiral up into the sky, bridge rivers, streets and squares, or nestle into the edge of Russian mountain plateaus. Apparently weightless, her concrete constructions stack layer upon layer of projecting and set-back storeys, seamlessly link assembly line production with office work in Leipzig's BMW factory, and transform ski jumps and exhibition halls into studies on dynamics.
Som en, der drives mere af hjertet og mavefornemmelsen, er det vigtigt for Christian Werner at kombinere det rationelle med en sensuel kvalitet. I alle sine møbeldesign forsøger han at give følelserne sin egen form for at oversætte dem til materiale.
”Jeg beskæftiger mig med ting der giver mening for mig. Mit udgangspunkt er altid en klar forklaring, og det er her, hvor berettigelsen af mine kreationer kan findes. Funktion er vigtig, og hvis jeg ikke kan formulere en god grund til at skabe et nyt produkt, er det bedre at lade være. ” - Cecilie Manz
When Philippe Starck and Duravit carried out their first joint project in 1994, it was love at first sight, but neither realised how successful this cooperation would be. The breakthrough came with the famous "Starck barrel", which to this day is one of Duravit’s best sellers. "I always said that the bathroom has to become a wet living room. But no one understood me. Apart from Duravit. That's why I love Duravit!"
Duravit still influences bathroom design. This is largely thanks to the collaboration with Dieter Sieger, which commenced in 1990. A starting signal for us as a manufacturer of designer bathrooms. With the \"Darling\" ceramic series, we set standards and, looking back, can see that we changed the industry. There's no doubt that this required a certain degree of courage, but mainly a love of sustainable design and timeless forms, something that is still apparent today in every Duravit product.
His bi-cultural childhood and upbringing played a fundamental role in shaping his creative approach. Kurt Merki Jr. creates dreams in the form of versatile products that offer solutions for all manner of lifestyles.

Matteo Thun was born in Bozen (South Tyrol) in 1952. After studying at the Oskar Kokoschka Academy in Salzburg, and at the Faculty of Architecture in Florence, in 1981, he was one of the co-founders of the legendary Memphis Group. Its members questioned the pure functionality of design objects.
Frank Huster, born in 1939, completed his studies of architecture and interior design in Stuttgart. In a shared office with Peter Hübner, from 1970 to 1978 he also worked on developing cardboard toys, folded structures, and cardboard screens for the Munich Olympics.
EOOS, the likeable Vienna-based design trio, could pass as a boy band. These three designers do not view their ‘threesome’ approach as a hindrance – in fact, they see it as a bonus, as bringing together three different personalities continually gives rise to surprising objects that shape the spaces they inhabit.
Ceramic is one of the most traditional materials around. And yet we keep finding ever more fascinating forms for the "white gold".
