Outstanding design – Once again Duravit acclaimed at the German Design Award 2022

The panel of the German Design Award 2022 has commended Duravit for its outstanding product and communication design. The bathroom designer gained the accolades “Winner” and “Special Mention” in each of the categories “Excellent Product Design - Bath and Wellness” and “Excellent Communications Design - Integrated Campaigns and Advertising”.

White Tulip is the first full bathroom created entirely by Philippe Starck. The opulent product range was crowned “Winner” at the German Design Award. Every component is extraordinary and exquisite, mirroring the organic silhouette of a tulip in bloom and creating an almost sculptural, delicate character.

The associated range of taps was also awarded the title of “Winner”. The White Tulip taps testify to extravagant attention to detail. The consistent design element is the handle that slants slightly outwards and is extremely easy to operate thanks to its smoothly polished surface. High-quality workmanship and the utmost perfectionism are apparent in the 160 narrow, vertically engraved stripes that give the tap its particularly refined character.

D-Neo offers premium quality and sophisticated design at an attractive entry-level price. The extraordinary complete bathroom range was Duravit’s second innovation from 2021 to win three awards – with an accolade as “Winner” for the D-Neo taps plus a “Special Mention” for the series as a whole as well as the associated communication campaign.

D-Neo will outlast short-lived trends and is the perfect accompaniment to daily life of any lifestyle in all its facets. The first complete bathroom range by Belgian designer Bertrand Lejoly is testament to his extraordinary instinct for interior design. Their sleek forms create the space into which individual style can unfold, with design elements that represent much more than mere functionality. Understated yet expressive - the taps stand out thanks to their straight-lined, geometric shape. The characteristically narrow, vertically positioned handle is standard throughout the entire range.

The diversity of D-Neo is reflected in the award-winning communication campaign. Under the strapline “THIS IS NEO”, the campaign showcases D-Neo in four different styles and variants, in each case brought to life through authentic everyday moments. Whether bohemian or pop, on social media or in print – the D-Neo campaign celebrates diversity.

Duravit received a further “Special Mention” for its News Magazine #13. Duravit is renowned for sensuous bathrooms with a quality you can feel. The Duravit News Magazine makes sure this feeling is communicated on the very first contact with the brand. Over 100,000 copies are printed every year, the magazine’s refined style helping to breathe life into the editorial content. The News Magazine gives dealers and end customers in over 40 countries the opportunity to immerse themselves in Duravit’s latest bathrooms.

The German Design Award is a premium award from the German Design Council, a globally recognized design competition with the objective of discovering, introducing and acclaiming unique design trends. Every year high-caliber submissions in product and communication design are recognized, each in its own way a pioneer in the international design landscape.
