Founded in 1817 originally as a manufacturer of crockery in 1956 production evolved to include porcelain extending the product range to include sanitary ware. Nowadays Duravit AG operates worldwide with 10 production plants and over 5,000 employees.
Constantly recognised for the perfect combination of design, innovation and value for money their ranges cover sanitary ceramics, bathroom furniture, accessories, shower trays and baths, whirl and well-being systems and SensoWash shower toilets.
They have worked with some world renowned designers, probably most notably Phillipe Starck and we have some great examples of the products he has designed for them in our showrooms.
With the OpenSpace Duravit has created an innovative shower enclosure that is simply folded back against the wall after use – providing extra space and freedom of movement in the bathroom. It's an ingenious solution for any bathroom or wet room.
Relaxing, kind to the circulation, healthy: it’s not surprising that steam showers are becoming more and more popular. First used in ancient Greece Duravit have teamed up with Philippe Starck to design their version the 'St Trop'. Heat and humidity relax the muscles and thanks to the relatively low temperature excessive strain is not placed on the circulation. Essentially it is a simple rectangle with the door forming a frame. As you might expect with a piece designed by Philippe Starck the St Trop is a design triumph with even the stool resembling a modern sculpture.
With their modern designs and storage solutions at the core of what they offer and do so well they also offer innovations in every area of the bathroom, notably with the Sensowash shower toilet. Contemporary clean designs and excellent German build quality make Duravit a cornerstone of the brands we offer our customers.
