White Tulip and D- Neo from Duravit have been honoured at iF DESIGN AWARD 2022, with the jury ‘impressed by high quality design’…
Since 1954, the iF DESIGN AWARD has been a recognised trademark for outstanding design all over the world. This year, Duravit was identified and celebrated for its innovative approach to bathroom product design.
The two complete bathroom ranges White Tulip and D-Neo, the faucets of the D-Neo bathroom series, and the News Magazine #13 from Duravit have been honoured with the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022.
The complete bathroom ranges White Tulip and D-Neo were decorated in the “bathrooms” category – as were the faucets of the D-Neo bathroom range. In the ‘Publications’ category, issue no. 13 of the Duravit News Magazine won over the 132-strong, independent, international expert jury. There were a great many applicants, and the jury selects the winners of the coveted quality seal from among 11,000 entries from 57 countries.
With White Tulip, the French designer Philippe Starck has created a holistic bathroom collection which has already been honored with the Red Dot Award and German Design Award. From bathtubs, washbasins and furniture, toilets and bidets, to matching mirrors and a complete collection of faucets, the exceptional form of all the components within the series echoes the organic silhouette of a tulip in bloom. The monolithic, free-standing ceramic washbasin is particularly eye-catching.
In March 2021 Duravit first unveiled the award-winning D-Neo range by Belgian designer Bertrand Lejoly. The D-Neo complete bathroom range stands out with its straight-lined and geometric forms. Thanks to the range’s attractive price point, new target groups can enjoy Duravit products. The design series as a whole and the faucets have already won the German Design Award and the Red Dot award.
Straight-lined faucets with additional functionality
In fitting with the D-Neo design, the D-Neo faucets also boast a straight-lined and geometric design. The characteristically narrow, vertically positioned handle is standard throughout the entire range. Sustainability is key: on the D-Neo washbasin mixers with FreshStart, only cold-water flows in the central position to start with. Hot water is only added when the one deliberately moves the handle to the left. The energy-intensive production of hot water is limited to situations where it is needed.
