Duravit wins five prizes at the Red Dot Design Award and iF DESIGN AWARD 2023
Accolades from the expert juries for the complete bathroom manufacturer’s outstanding design quality.
Duravit was hailed the “winner” five times in the “Product Design 2023” category: Sebastian Herkner’s Zencha designer bathroom collection, the Tulum faucet range designed by Philippe Starck, and Duravit’s own Sustano shower tray all won over the distinguished Red Dot Design Award jury. The 133-member, independent and international jury of experts of the iF DESIGN AWARD was also won over by Zencha and the Duravit No. 1 campaign, awarding Duravit two “Winners”.
Zencha by Sebastian Herkner: An homage to mindfulness and craftsmanship
The accomplished Zencha bathroom collection by Sebastian Herkner is inspired by traditional Japanese rituals and craftsmanship. Above-counter basins with a gentle outwards slope and generously proportioned bathtubs meet minimalist furniture – outstanding design quality that won over the juries at the Red Dot Award. The collection, already the recipient of a German Design Award, was crowned the “winner” at the Red Dot Award and iF DESIGN AWARD.
Tulum by Philippe Starck: Iconic, eternal design
The monolithic design of the Tulum by Philippe Starck faucet series – reduced to its elementary components – skillfully creates accents and is hugely adaptable. Available in two colour options, Tulum impresses with a balanced composition of round and square shapes to create an impression of visual clarity. Its iconic shape and sheer elegance were also crowned the “winner” in the Red Dot Award’s “Product Design 2023” category.
Sustano: Recyclable and customizable shower tray
Sustano by Duravit, the first recyclable shower tray, comes in six colours and is very easy to customize and cut to size. The Sustano can be installed flush with the floor, semi-recessed or on the floor tiles depending on structural factors and personal preference. The elegant, calm design language of the shower tray, made from the sustainable material DuroCast Nature, also sufficiently impressed the distinguished jury of the Red Dot Award to be crowned the “winner”.
Duravit No. 1 Campaign: BE MY NO. 1
The Duravit No. 1 campaign expresses that life does not end at the bathroom door. Not even when you’re just starting out – in your first home or shared apartment. Duravit promises an upgrade for every day and keeps this promise with the Duravit No. 1 complete bathroom series in the entry-level segment. t. Saint Elmo’s concept convinced the jury of experts of the iF DESIGN AWARD to award the creative product campaign of Duravit No. 1 as “Winner”.
