Duravit’s C.1 tap fitting series and Luv bathroom range have received the 2018 “Red Dot” Award for outstanding design.
The company says the C.1 design range by Kurt Merki Jr. perfectly reflects its design language, featuring an ergonomic handle with a recess underneath that is comfortable to hold and permits precise operation.
Meanwhile, the unusual design of Luv by Danish designer Cecilie Manz combines Nordic purism and what Duravit calls ‘timeless, emotional elegance’, with gentle forms following a stringent geometry.
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.
A40 strong jury evaluated the products individually as originals, while the same expert committee only awards the internationally renowned quality seal to products with an impressively high design quality and that satisfy stringent evaluation criteria.
