Leben im Bad

Duravit Green Duravit Green Bathroom design by Duravit

Neither Duravit nor its designers – renowned for their work, every one of them – are interested in “design for design’s sake”. This is because good design is not just about looks but equally about practicality and sustainability. This applies to the materials used, their environmentally-friendly production and design. After all, who wants design that comes with an expiry date? This is why Duravit develops and offers timelessly modern forms for all its products and ranges rather than following fashion trends. This is demonstrated by four examples:
The sustainability of an everyday object: a simple water bucket was sufficient to inspire Philippe Starck to design the Starck 1 bathroom classic.
Starck 1: The search for the origin of things has writt en bathroom history
With the Starck 1 range, designer Philippe Starck and Duravit have gone back to the beginnings of hygiene, body care and wellness. The range also describes the evolution of the bathroom: the toilet, bathtub and washbasin are clearly descended from their historical predecessors, namely the bucket, tub and washbowl – even though they have been completely reinterpreted. And because something this good does not have to be “optimised”, the products in the range – ceramics, furniture, shower trays, bathtubs and accessories – have not been changed at all since their market launch in 1994.

Consistently rectangular, consistently successful: the Vero bathroom classic
Cinema screen or computer monitor, fridge or milk carton, a room, a table, this brochure: our world is inconceivable without the rectangle. Perhaps this is why we are so attracted to Vero: the forms of this ceramic range are entirely restricted to the rectangle. A restriction that gives rise to new possibilities: this is because Vero is one of the most versatile ceramic ranges of all time. Vero has been impressing architects, building owners and bathroom users for a decade with its clear, minimalist design.

Happy D. is simple, aesthetic and timelessly modern
Happy D.: archetypical bathroom design
There are many reasons for the success of Happy D. On the one hand, despite its designer credentials, the range developed by Sieger Design offers outstanding value for money. On the other hand, because sustainability is a product of permanence of memory: thanks to their succinct D form, the washbasin & co. are to successful bathroom design what Bauhaus is to architecture. Happy D. is simple, aesthetic and, above all, timelessly modern – a true icon that, since its market launch in 1999, has scooped numerous design awards.

1930 Series: timelessly up-to-date design for more than 80 years
The design of the 1930 Series is the very essence of sustainability: designed in the golden twenties of the last century and first presented to the world’s public in 1930, the char - acteristic form of the octagonal washbasin by Duravit has remained unchanged to the present day. Over the years, many other attractive pieces were added to create the range we know today. With its inimitable design, the 1930 Series became a timelessly modern bathroom classic and will doubtlessly continue to be so for many more years to come.
