Duravit turns on the taps – and out pours innovation • Hotel Designs

All three new tap lines from Duravit – Wave, Circle, and Manhattan – offer a wider range with alternative combination options with its various ceramic series. In addition, the new design provides added value to architects and developers, with sustainable features such as FreshStart, MinusFlow and EasyClean. Duravit Best Match, a proprietary configurator developed by Duravit, helps users select the best combination of tap and ceramic for each bathroom.

The washbasin taps are available in sizes S and M, with the energy and water-saving features MinusFlow (flow limited to 40per cent = 3.5 l/min) and FreshStart, which means cold water flows at the start and hot water is only added when the user deliberately moves the handle to the left. This limits the energy-intensive production of hot water to situations where it is needed. The thermostat taps have HeatLock scald protection and all the washbasin taps feature an EasyClean aerator, where dirt and limescale can be simply rubbed off the silicone nozzle with a finger.

There are three different spout heights for the washbasin mixers (S, M, and Highriser) offering different variants such as concealed mixer, three hole tap and a pillar tap, to cater for different needs at the washbasin. Wave, Circle and Manhattan also provide a tap solution for any installation scenario in other areas of the bathroom – bidet, shower and bathtub. For the shower area and bathtub, users can choose between single-lever mixers and thermostat taps as well as surface-mounted and flush-mounted solutions. The Wave and Circle ranges feature a rim-mounted tap fitting and the shower systems with showerhead and height-adjustable hand shower are practical full solutions, for retrofitting.

The Duravit BlueBox, is a universal installation system for a range of tap designs (lever mixers or thermostats) and is used for concealed installation. This allows the design decision to be taken even after the basic set has been installed.

Wave is a contemporary and youthful design style. The slim, cylindrical base undergoes a soft, flowing transition into the gently rounded spout, creating an exciting contrast with its precise edges. The dynamic upward-facing handle guarantees a simple and precise operation. Available in Chrome, Matt Black and three additional scratch-resistant and durable PVD surfaces – Brushed Stainless Steel, Brushed Bronze, Polished Gold – Wave offers an attractive option for individual bathroom design.

Duravit offers the Starck T accessories as well as matching accessories from the entire portfolio as the perfect enhancement: showerheads, outlet fittings, furniture handles, actuator plates, and siphons are perfectly coordinated with the tap finishes and ensures a harmonious and stylish ambience in the room . For the first time, Duravit can offer an entire colour-coordinated bathroom fit-out with no compromises.

Circle represents a restrained and minimalist approach to design that is an ideal match for modern bathroom ranges. The body, outlet, and handle are defined by the fundamental shape of the circle to form a harmonious whole. Details such as the reduction of the gap between the body and the handle to a minimum or the integrated aerator underpin the overall pared-down aesthetic. A practical side effect is that the rounded surfaces enable the water to flow away easily, making them particularly easy to clean in everyday use. The Circle range of taps is available in Chrome and creates a harmonious overall picture when combined with accessories of the D-Code series.

The cube is the defining design element of the Manhattan range. The distinctive design language is characterized by precise lines and edges. These are emphasized by subtle reflections of light to create a high-quality aesthetic. WHILE spacious surfaces and precise transitions underpin the striking elegance that creates clean and contemporary interior designs. Available in Chrome and Matt Black, a wide range of design options is possible. The Karree accessories series is a suitable accompaniment to the design language.
