Duravit's Viu And XViu Ranges: Must-Haves For A Futuristic Bathroom
Futuristic bathrooms are not just about the look, but most importantly, it's all about the feel. Though aesthetics usually comes top in mind for interior designers, homeowners should also be keen on the functionalities of each element incorporated as well as its performance when it comes to meeting hygiene standards.
Fortunately, Duravit excels in both form and function. Besides its wide range of bathroom furniture with advanced technological features, it also has a number of ranges that hail forward-looking design and made of high-quality materials.
Now made available locally in the Philippines, Duravit's Viu ceramics range, XViu furniture range, and the matching bathtubs present a complete bathroom range that has emerged from the interaction of soft, organic forms with precise geometry and details finished to perfection. All produced in collaboration with Sieger Design, these ranges combine the finest ceramics, glass, and metal with matte lacquers or high-quality woods.
Viu has distinctive recurrent design elements and special details. Based on the renowned brand's patented C-bonded solution, the washing area's exterior is a strict rectangle with gentle, organic curves in its interior, hence providing a spacious inner basin and generous shelf. This impressive technology makes washbasins wear-resistant and easy to clean. With its texture reminiscent of the softness of water, prominent contour of supporting metal console in elegant champagne matte or avant-garde black matte, to the acrylic panelling on the underside that conceals the fixing structure, the Viu washbasins are truly one of its kind.
The Viu washbasins are available in five sizes as well as a handrinse basin. Alternatively, one may opt to choose a furniture washbasin, or a built-in washbasin, or perhaps an above-counter washbasin and matching vanity unit with a pull-out compartment or two drawers, available as well in champagne matte and black matte.
Contrastingly, XViu furniture range gives owners a chance to make several combinations among the variety of materials. A range of high-quality real-wood, lacquer, and décor finishes create a wealth of style collections from "silver" to "dark".
For tall and semi-tall cabinets, owners may choose from the door variants in semi-transparent smoked glass. Technically optimised but visually subtle, smooth hinge straps are deployed for opening and closing the doors.
Moreover, mirrors and mirror cabinets have fully-mirrored sides. For those who prefer the ease of use, one may choose from the models fitted with a sensor switch and dimmable lighting. There is a variant that has icon control on the mirror surface—a Duravit breakthrough—that features the ambient light mode and coloured light switching function.

Another highlight of the XViu series is the free-standing bathtub that serves as an eye-catching centrepiece for the bathroom. Again, the prominent metal frame of the range with the familiar V-shaped profile is seen here and comes in either champagne matte or black matte, contrasting the high-gloss white acrylic of the tub. When viewed from above, it presents itself in a precise rectangle with an ergonomic and organic free form interior.
Meanwhile, the interplay of the basic geometric shape and optimised gentle inner shape are key features of the toilet in the range. Metal push buttons positioned on the sides allow the removal of the seat cover, making cleaning easier. Homeowners may have a toilet with improved Rimless technology that ensures outstanding flushing performance. SensoWash® Slim is another option for the toilet. The combination with the Duravit A2 electronic actuator plate and matching wall-mounted element provides operating comfort of the highest standard.
