Duravit wins five Iconic Awards in the Innovative Architecture Category
Duravit wins five Iconic Awards in the “Innovative Architecture” category, including “best of best”
Visionary architecture, forward-looking products and sustainable communication: this year the Iconic Awards, the international design and architecture competition, awarded prizes to numerous extraordinary projects. Five of these went to Duravit in the “Innovative Architecture” category. The company even won a “best of best” award. Duravit walked away with awards for both new and enhanced product lines as well as its booth concept at the ISH, the world’s leading trade fair for HVAC and water, in Frankfurt.
Duravit and Philippe Starck can count themselves among best of the best thanks to the new SensoWash Starck f product. The innovative shower-toilet earned the “Best of Best” award for the most innovative product. It was marked out by the fact that it can be individually configured via an app, laying the foundation for a new generation of shower-toilets. The flat seat and the white cover located behind it form a flush-mounted unit that combines contemporary design and comfort-enhancing technology. Philippe Starck is also behind the new “Starck T” accessory range for Duravit, one of the winners in the Product subcategory. The stand-out design feature of this range is its geometric T shape: 16 elements in classic chrome or stylish Black Matt add the finishing touch to the modern bathroom.
Only recently introduced and already winning awards: in addition to “Starck T”, the new Viu/XViu series from sieger design stood out in the Product subcategory. Organic shapes and precise geometric contours combine to produce a harmonious whole. From matt lacquers to wood finishes, the new surface combinations provide diverse options in the bathroom. Striking V-shaped metal profiles in Champagne Matt or Black Matt forge the characteristic, avant-gardist look of the c-bonded metal consoles, washing areas with vanity unit, mirror, mirrored cabinets, and free-standing bathtub.
The new D.1 faucet line from Duravit in collaboration with Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez brings a hi-tech flourish to the washbasin. With clear contours and finely galvanized surfaces in Chrome or Black Matt, D.1 sets an unmistakably unique statement in the bathroom. This is underscored by the Iconic Award for the range. The circular operating button on the D.1e electronic version similarly takes up the clear formal language of the cylinder on the faucet body.
These new Duravit products were presented at the ISH, the world’s leading trade fair for HVAC and water, in Frankfurt. A space of 1,100 square meters was given over to informative product experiences. This enabled, for instance, the products to be showcased in a range of room ambiences befitting the different series – which ultimately won over the Iconic Awards jury. The innovative booth concept was awarded a prize in the Architecture subcategory.
Duravit to offer RIBA approved CPD Hygiene and Cleanliness in Bathroom Design
Duravit are delighted to introduce their RIBA approved CPD: Hygiene and Cleanliness in Bathroom Design.
The Duravit CPD will include aspects such as:
1. Features and Benefits of standard vs rimless toilets
2. How technology is being combined with the manufacture of toilets to meet the needs of both current and future users.
3. Additional hygiene options available
“CPD’s are not only about providing in depth knowledge and information but also help to establish and build relationships. Based in Clerkenwell, the heart of London’s architecture and design district,
the Duravit Showroom has a unique advantage. We are ideally placed to either host our CPD, or alternatively we will visit architectural and design practices and present the CPD in the comfort of their own office or boardroom.” Martin Carroll, MD Duravit UK.
