Lauren Sutton, Head of the Design Hub at Virtual Worlds comments:
“Virtual Worlds are delighted to be working with Duravit and the White Tulip design competition, which will help to showcase creative design within the bathroom industry and we look forward to seeing

White Tulip is the first full bathroom created entirely by Philippe Starck. From bathtub, washbasins and furniture, toilets and bidets, to
connected mirrors and a complete collection of faucets, the delicate and elegant form of all components within the series echoes the organic silhouette of a tulip in bloom, exuding an sculptural and affectionate character. Expressive and timeless design combined with first-class workmanship and cutting-edge technologies to satisfy
the highest standards.

Philippe Starck, world famous creator with multifaceted inventiveness, is always focused on the essential, his vision: that creation, whatever form it takes, must improve the lives of as many people
as possible. This philosophy has made him one of the pioneers and central figures of the concept of “democratic design”.

By employing his prolific work across all domains, from everyday products (furniture, a citrus squeezer, electric bikes, an individual wind turbine), to architecture (hotels, restaurants that aspire to be stimulating places) and naval and spatial engineering (mega yachts, habitation module for private space tourism), he continually pushes
the boundaries and requirements of design, becoming one of the most visionary and renowned creators of the international contemporary scene.
Philippe Starck and his wife, Jasmine, spend most of their time on airplanes or in "middles of nowhere".
