Duravit receives iF award for three products
Duravit AG has received iF design award for three of its products at iF awards from a total of 3,011 entries.
The three products include OpenSpace shower enclosure, St.Trop steam shower and the SensoWash Starck C shower-toilet.
OpenSpace, designed by EOOS, is an elegant solution for a shower enclosure that can be opened up when taking a shower. Afterwards, the two doors can be simply "folded away”. This not only creates a more spacious feel, but also enables greater freedom of movement in the bathroom – a particular benefit for small bathrooms.
St.Trop is a steam shower that has been designed as a simple rectangle with a footprint of no more than one square metre. Designed by Philippe Starck, the steam shower was inspired by a painting wherein the door is similar to a frame surrounding a large-scale painting. The motif is the person taking a shower, resulting in a work of natural beauty.
For the first time, the SensoWash Starck C shower-toilet seat combines premium design with the comfort of a bidet integrated in the toilet. The shower function is designed as discrete so that it only becomes apparent when the toilet lid is lifted. All technical components have been miniaturized, so the connections for both water and electricity fit between the ceramic body and the seat without interrupting the clear design lines.
iF Award has been a recognised trademark for outstanding design all over the world. The jury’s criteria include design quality, workmanship, choice of materials, degree of innovation, environmental compatibility, functionality, and universal design aspects.
