Leben im Bad

Company Worldwide Duravit Design Center

Exceptional in form and content: the new Duravit Design Center in Hornberg. The new trapeze-shaped building with its distinctive giant toilet as an observation platform – designed by French star designer Philippe Starck – is leading the Duravit brand into a whole new dimension. Superbly presented, individually conceived exhibition areas, including six in-house test bathrooms, inspire visitors from around the globe: "Living Bathrooms" as conceived by Duravit. At the same time, the Duravit Design Center is a magnet for all sanitaryware dealers, architects and planners.

With internationally acclaimed bathroom design, Duravit has made a major contribution to turning the impersonal wet cell of days gone by into a haven of wellbeing. The Duravit Design Centre is also a place of wellbeing. Inspired by Philippe Starck, the name behind several Duravit bathroom classics, the Design Centre is the ideal place to organise your seminars and professional workshops, try out our baths and visit our exhibitions on the theme of „Living Bathrooms“. In a truly outstanding atmosphere: The exhibition concept, developed in cooperation with the Atelier Brückner, Stuttgart, received the prestigious iF communication design award in 2006.

Level 3 - „Training”
Here, planners, architects, specialists and all those with similar aspirations can literally immerse themselves.
