Red Dot Award for Duravit C.1 tap series and Luv bathroom range

 

Both the Duravit C.1 tap series and Luv, the complete bathroom range have received the 2018 “Red Dot” award for outstanding design.

The C.1 design range by Kurt Merki Jr. perfectly reflects Duravit’s design language. The ergonomic handle with a recess underneath is comfortable to hold and permits precise operation.

The unusual design of Luv by Danish designer Cecilie Manz combines Nordic purism and timeless, emotional elegance. Gentle forms follow a stringent geometry. The selection of materials and colours is testament to her sense for touch and nuances.

The Red Dot award for “Product Design”, which can trace its origins back to 1955, seeks out each year’s best products. In 2018 designers and manufacturers from 59 nations entered more than 6,300 objects in the competition. True to the motto “in search of good design and innovation”, a jury – around 40 strong – evaluated the products individually as originals. The expert committee only awards the internationally renowned quality seal to products with an impressively high design quality and that satisfy stringent evaluation criteria.

Duravit C.1 tap fittings win the iF GOLD AWARD 2018

March 2018, Duravit has received the iF DESIGN AWARD for the 41st time. The iF GOLD AWARD acknowledges the design excellence, execution, consideration of environmental standards, functionality and innovations of the new C.1 tap fittings range. This award again confirms Duravit’s high level of design expertise. In addition, Luv, Vero Air c-bonded and the BioTracer were honoured with the iF DESIGN AWARD.

The C.1 design range perfectly reflects Duravit’s design language. The ergonomic handle with a recess underneath feels comfortable in the hand and permits a precise operation. Sophisticated details, such as the gap between the base plate and handle which has been reduced to a minimum, add to the elegant look.

Four different heights for a range of basin dimensions, three-hole tap fittings in two heights and wall-mounted fittings with a spout in two lengths provide comfort at the washbasin as well as matching design. C.1 also offers an ideal tap fitting solution for the bidet, shower and bathtub.

The bathroom is a place where we often feel the need for structure and clarity. Where hygiene and cleanliness play a vital role, the colour white not only creates a brighter room but also a feeling of space. The positive qualities of pure white can be multiplied by overlaying tone on tone: a matt DuraSolid bathtub, glistening DuraCeram ceramics, and a white vanity unit can produce a harmonious light ambience. Towels or other accessories, such as patterned glass items, can generate interesting contrasts.
