Design & Sustainability
The Duravit design brand
How do we actually recognize good design? After all, individual tastes can be so very different.
First, Duravit has been the proud recipient of numerous international design awards. These awards celebrate bold design, which has become Duravit’s hallmark over the years. Second, there are the designers themselves. Each designer is a specialist in his field – a prominent global innovator with an inherent sense for good design. Good design, as Duravit and its designers see it, is never at the expense of practicality – neither is interested in “design for design’s sake”.
And third? That’s you, the bathroom user, and your own set of needs and requirements. Thanks to an ongoing dialogue with its trade partners and sanitary ware dealers, Duravit is best able to address these needs and requirements in the brand’s designs. Simply put, Duravit recognizes good bathroom design by the fact that it seems specially-created to suit all individual tastes.
Duravit and sustainability
Today, everyone’s talking about environmental responsibility – a practice that Duravit has championed for years in its selection of materials, technological applications and production methods. Sustainability is the very reason Duravit continues to work with sanitary ceramic, a material that dates back to 8,000 BC. Today, the manufacture of Duravit sanitary ware ceramic continues to employ the same basic materials – clay, kaolin, feldspar and quartz – a set of natural, regenerative sub- stances. This fusion of Duravit’s environmentally-friendly production technologies with the company’s meticulous quality control results in products that are highly functional and long-lasting.
At Duravit, sustainable materials, modern expertise and the foresight to recognize what will be important tomorrow comprise the essential ingredients for beautiful – and responsible – living bathrooms.
