    Duravit stands out at the 2018 German Design Awards with a Special Mention for the new Brioso bathroom furniture range and three “Winner” accolades for the XSquare, Shower+Bath and DuraSystem series…

    Recommended Supplier Duravit has come away from the 2018 German Design Awards with a total of four awards and new titles, as the panel of judges recognise key products in the brand’s portfolio.

    The Special Mention recognises works with designs demonstrating particularly successful details or solutions. This award honours the commitment of companies and designers.

    Brioso by Duravit received the Special Mention award. With “Brioso”, Duravit and designer Christian Werner have created a range of furniture that represents relaxation, freshness and “joie de vivre” for contemporary bathroom interiors. Its distinctive features include a precise, finely nuanced geometry produced by slender cabinet frames that form the edge of the furniture, mirrors, and mirror cabinets.

    The prestigious German Design Award 2019’s goal is to “discover, present, and honour unique trends in design.”

    XSquare – Winner
    Duravit’s XSquare was another winner of the evening. The furniture ranged was designed with Kurt Merki Jr. to match the style of the DuraSquare washbasins. The quadrant-shaped chrome profile which edges the furniture emphasises the striking design. While on the floor-standing model, the transition to the base is absolutely seamless, the chrome profile accentuates the frame of both variants.

    Shower + Bath – Winner
    The ingenious Shower+Bath, which unites a contemporary idea with creative use of space: the design by EOOS features a walk-in shower and bathtub in one, was the third winner of the evening. The integrated glass door turns the bathtub quickly and easily into an open shower with straightforward access.

    Duravit has already received ten awards in 2018.

    DuraSystem® – Winner
    With the DuraSystem installation frames, Duravit offers an entire range of bathroom fittings, in front of and behind the wall, from a single source. The electronic “A2” sensor plate in white glass permits contact-free operation.

    The German Design Award is a premium international prize given by the Rat für Formgebung (Council for Design). Each year high-calibre submissions in product and communication design are recognised, each in its own way a pioneer in the international design landscape.

    Duravit has already received ten awards in 2018 including the IF Award, the Red Dot Award and now the German Design Award 2019 as well as more than 170 international design awards since the start of the 1990s.
