Duravit AG’s design expertise has again been endorsed: out of a total of 4615 entries from 55 countries, four products by the manufacturer and designer bathroom outfitter caught the eye of the jury of the iF product design award. The Happy D.2 complete bathroom series, the Inipi B compact sauna, the SensoWash i integrated shower-toilet and the rectangular bath by Philippe Starck all received the high-profile design award.
The iF Award is established internationally as a symbol for outstanding achievements in design. It reflects the current trends in design and the economic viability of well-designed products. The jury applies a large number of evaluation criteria, including material selection, the level of innovation, functionality, environmental compatibility and brand value.
The consistent geometric shape and the distinctive, archetypical forms are the unifying design features of the Happy D.2 bathroom range. With a symmetrical basic form, washbasins, baths and shower trays have a spacious interior enclosed by a particularly fine, all-round rim. The vertically adjustable chrome console creates an exciting contrast to the soft forms and complements the extensive furniture programme that has been specially matched to the ceramics.
With a footprint of just 120 x 120 cm, the Inipi B compact sauna integrates the classical sweat bath into modern bathing and living architecture. In small urban apartments, its compact dimensions also provide sufficient space for a relaxing wellness experience. Rather than a fixed connection, Inipi B requires nothing more than a socket. This makes it an interesting product for rented apartments and houses: tenants can simply unplug it and take it with them.
SensoWash i is Philippe Starck's first integrated shower-toilet. He consistently pursues his passion for reduced forms, setting global design standards: following precise lines, ceramics merge with brushed stainless steel to form a single unit. Clear symbols on the remote control ensure intuitive operation.
The rectangular Starck bath is a bathroom classic. In the style of the distinctive design, the new form has an exciting detail: the integrated neckrest. The geometric lines, which are the fundamental design DNA, are retained. The neckrest resembles a board that was placed in the original washtub for added comfort.
