Trends for the Holistic Bathroom of the Future

Looking to upgrade your private space? Take note of these three trends
In its latest presentation, German manufacturer Duravit has reinterpreted the basic idea of the holistic interior. All products have a consistent design language and can be combined with products from all series to optimum effect. Precise geometric forms, selected materials and soft, matt colors and textures take their place in the bathroom. Design, function and high operating comfort are perfectly coordinated.
Nordic elegance with gentle colours
The Nordic style is known for clear forms and soft, natural colours. For Duravit, the Danish designer, Cecilie Manz has combined Nordic design with new technologies, new colors and new materials.
The Luv bathroom series combines Nordic purism with timeless, emotional elegance—shedding light to new ways of designing either larger or guest bathrooms. Meanwhile, the DuraCeram® shows off Manz’s refined sense for touch and nuances with her use of subtle lines, generous inner basin and clear edges, and selection of materials and colours. For the first time, Duravit uses matte glazes in soft tones on the outside of the DuraCeram washbowls, which contrast with the high-glaze white ceramic inside. New pale Nordic colors in satin-matt lacquer can also be found on the furniture. The distinctively shaped baths are based on the form of the wash bowl and are made from the mineral material DuraSolid A, which offers a pleasantly warm feel and a high-quality matte look.
Vero Air, design by Duravit, is in keeping with the ongoing trend of enduring design. With its clear, classically rectangular form, Vero has been one of the architectural classics of bathroom design since 2001. Thanks to modern manufacturing technologies, the precise design of Vero Air reinterprets Vero's timeless geometry. The range’s washbasins and bathtubs impress with reduced edges and a striking linear charm.
The new DuraSquare collection presents an upgrade of Vero Air that sets new standards with its clarity, precision and reduction. Exact edges blend with the organically flowing inner contours. From the washbasin to the bathtub, the program is designed to be sustainable and is made with the innovative materials DuraCeram and DuraSolid. Combined with the new furniture frame, the washbasins become a veritable eye-catcher in the bathroom. This flexible base is height-adjustable and can be supplied in silver (chrome) or matte black.
Creative solutions for compact areas
Limited living space demands greater practicality and smarter solutions. With the innovative Shower + Bath combination, Duravit unites the strict requirements regarding contemporary bathroom design and optimum use of space: the design by EOOS features a walk-in shower and bathtub in one. The functional versatility of Shower + Bath is a result of the high level of precision in the finishing and the use of the innovative material DuraSolid A.
Individual and cut-to-size washing areas with surrounds and storage space are both functional and convenient. The new console system comprises uniform furniture consoles in two different thicknesses (30 and 45 mm) and with a variable width and depth. They can be combined with vanity units and furniture from a total of seven Duravit ranges: L-Cube, Vero, Happy D.2, Delos, DuraStyle, Ketho and X-Large. The Duravit consoles are available with 32 different finishes from high-gloss lacquer, for example in Apricot Pearl or Stone Blue, to real-wood fronts such as oak or walnut. With individual combinations such as a walnut console and discreet, white vanity units interesting accents can be created.
In the Philippines, Duravit is distributed by Kuysen Enterprises. (website here).
