The opening of “Duravit London” in June this year marked another milestone in the company’s history. Founded over 200 years ago in Hornberg, in the Black Forest, Duravit AG is a leading international manufacturer of designer bathrooms, working with international designers, such as Philippe Starck, EOOS, Phoenix Design, sieger design, Kurt Merki Jr., Christian Werner, Matteo Thun and Cecilie Manz.
Duravit is a major player in innovative bathroom design, soLondon was chosen as a key location. Ideally located at 34-36 Clerkenwell Road, Duravit London, is in the centre of one of the most important design districts for global projects and specifications.
Proving that it’s not only the new that is of interest and that Duravit products are designed to stand the test of time; classics such as ME by Starck and Cape Cod by Philippe Starck and the more recent introduction, the curvaceous Luv by Cecilie Manz are both on display in the showroom. Since opening, both series have received great interest from interior designers and architects alike.
Other key pieces on show include: XSquare, Duravit’s new innovative furniture collection, designed by Kurt Merki Jr. plus the new Brioso furniture series, by Christian Werner, a range that allows for an element of individual creativity by enabling a number of the handles and feet to be mixed and matched by colour or finish.
Another key activity for Duravit London is the showrooms ability to act as a professional and creative hub. It has been designed to act as a focal point for architects, designers and building professionals working on home grown and global projects. The showroom enables them to see the quality of Duravit’s designs in situ and ensure the correct Duravit products are specified for a wide variety of projects.
Consumers are also able to plan and discuss their requirements with a member of Duravit’s dedicated team who will be on hand to offer practical support, technical advice and specialist knowledge on choosing products for a future bathroom.
As part of the plans for 2019 both retail partners and the A & D community will be invited to training and CPD seminars, these and other activities form part of a continuous programme of professional development.
