How often do you dream about your next escape or even just a small respite from the chaos of everyday life? Where silence reigns, and peace is not a mere wisp of an idea, but a tranquil feeling of rejuvenation. Innovative German bath company, Duravit, understands the populations’ growing and overwhelming desire for wellness and relaxation, and continually designs collections that prioritize the bathroom as a vital space to decompress and recharge. Imagine closing the door to the world, discarding your stress, and literally soaking in the serenity of your own personal sanctuary—replete with warm lighting, soapy bubbles, and perhaps that much-needed glass of bubbly.
Tim Schroeder, President of Duravit, says the company ethos embodies a focus on the “‘living bathroom’”—which he describes as forward-thinking design enhanced with technological innovations designed to improve quality of life. With DuraSquare, released just last year, Schroeder describes it as “a balanced collection that embodies where technology and design merge.” The fluidity of the bathtub is designed to seamlessly adapt to any aesthetic while the structure is made from the brand’s proprietary cast mineral material, DuraSolid—rendering it warm with a sensuous feel. The rest of the collection includes contemporary ceramics and furniture celebrated for their customizable nature—buyers can choose from an array of finishes, glass inlays, sizes, configurations and more.
Founded in 1817, Duravit has made it a point to employ cutting-edge designers in the likes of Philippe Starck and EOOS to not only apply their inventive approaches, but to create products that promote all aspects of wellbeing, and, of course, follow form and function. “The bathroom should be an extension of your design style—it should be a space that is just as sexy as your room or kitchen,” says Schroeder.
