• Duravit collaborate with Philippe Starck

    23 January 2013

    From the heated seat to the cleansing wash – modern toilets offer a completely new standard of hygiene and comfort for the smallest room in the house.

    Bathroom manufacturer Duravit and designer Philippe Starck have now taken up this idea and have collaborated on the “SensoWash Starck” shower-toilet seat that premieres outstanding design and showering comfort in equal measure – a symbiosis with which Duravit wishes to set new standards for the toilet.

    The shower-toilet seat boasts an unusually flat and slimline design that curves gently up into the wall and that finishes in an elegant silver-coloured panel. To ensure the continuous flow of the clear lines, the technical components have been miniaturised so the entire technology fits between the ceramic body and the seat.


    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
