DuraStye by Matteo Thun


September 14, 2017 | BY Philippine Tatler

Individuality and simplicity makes for an impressive collection

With the aim of creating a collection that is revealed as deliberately discreet, Matteo Thun & Partners have designed DuraStyle, whose key design feature is its ability to blend harmoniously into practically any ambiance. It comes with a complete range of furnishings—from basins, cabinets, bathtubs, to toilet and bidet.


Based on the rectangular base evolved the washbasin variants, handrinse basin to furniture washbasin, offering a generous storage area and comfortable inner basin depth.


Simplicity also rules in the bathroom furniture area. The trick is in the mix between open and closed areas: In this way, everything works airily and transparently. The refined 2/3 division of the wall unit is also continued with the vanity units. The mirror is available in four widths and the satin-finish LED panel provides ideal illumination with up to 300 lux.


Again, DuraStyle offers innovative solutions in the tub field. The tub trademark is the characteristic sloping of the rear edge: It serves as a support to make getting in and out easier and adds to the visual appeal, because shampoo and other items vanish behind it. The tub is available with acrylic and furniture finish and, optionally, with whirl system.

The whirl system enables the air bubbles to stimulate the circulation, and in turn the water massage stimulates the blood flow. In effect, you feel lighter and carefree, muscular pain and tension simply disappear.

The tub system also employs a Bluetooth system for sound so you can fully enjoy the experience.


The innovative impression given continues within the design of toilet and bidet: The flat seat & cover, available with and without a soft-close system, is eye-catching. Wall-mounted and free standing toilets can also be combined with the shower toilet seat SensoWash® DuraStyle by Starck. Ceramics and seat blend into a harmonious, elegant unit.

In the Philippines, Kaldewei is distributed by Kuysen Enterprises. (website here).
