Duravit Introduces – The Bathroom of the Future with Viu & XViu

The bathroom of the future. Created by sieger design for Duravit, the Viu and XViu series is a completely new concept in bathroom design.    It combines the durability of ceramics with the elegance and precision of aluminium.  

The dynamic V-shape profile of the supporting console is a key feature, which can be seen on free-standing  vanity units and the bathtub surround. The design creates an almost optical illusion. It is strong and definite from one angle, yet move a little and they appear to have transformed into fine lines that all but disappear.

Textures and Surfaces

This illusion is further enhanced by the choice of textures and surfaces available.  Only the finest ceramics, glass and metal, combined with matt lacquers or high-quality woods have been used. All combine to create this new range which encompasses the entire bathroom.

The Highlight – Washing Area

The highlight is a washing area that incorporates Duravit’s patented c-bonded technology.  The supporting metal console with its dynamic V-shape profile is available in Champagne Matt or avant garde Black Matt; its exterior forms a strict rectangle, whilst the interior curves organically to create a spacious basin that is surrounded by a generous shelf area.  The underside of the basin is elegantly covered by acrylic panelling.  A discreet design feature this conceals  the fixing structure, cables and connecting hoses. It ensuring that the elaborate technology for the D.1e electronic tap, does not impact the design.

Freestanding Bathtubs

Another key element of the series is the free-standing bathtub.  The prominent metal frame with the signature V-shaped profile in Champagne Matt or Black Matt provides a distinctive contrast to the high-gloss white acrylic and creates an eye-catching centrepiece.

The XViu bathroom programme can be adapted to suit an individual style;  available in 34 finishes it combines well with a number of Duravit’s other ceramic series.

Duravit – keeping warm in the bathroom this winter

Winter trends in the bathroom

A great thing about the cold season is that you can luxuriate in a bath, such as the Cape Cod bath from Duravit; immerse yourself in a warm bath to unwind relax and loosen tight, cold muscles. Designer Philippe Starck intuitively placed well–being at the heart of his creation. 

Hygge in the bathroom

 The icing on the cake of any dull, grey, winter day is to create some “hygge” – the Danish art of homeliness into the bathroom. Ideal companions for the baths are furniture and accessories that exude a sense of nature and warmth through their colour and shape. These include untreated woods and authentic decorations in subdued tones.

Light in the bathroom

Alongside natural candlelight, dimmable mirrors and mirror cabinets are ideal as lightening in the bathroom that can be adapted to any requirement. They create a lightening accent in the room and bathe the washing area in a pleasant light. The latest innovation in the field of mirror lighting is the seamless adjustment of the light colour.
