New Cape Cod Corner Bathtub
From its humble beginnings in Germany, Duravit has become a world renowned producer of premium bathroom products. Originally manufacturing earthenware chamber pots in the 1800's to becoming a world leader in sanitary ware, Duravit has continued to evolve and expand its production of innovative wall-mount toilets, bathroom furniture, and accessories, whirlpools and saunas.
With its beginnings in the pristine Black Forest region of Germany, Duravit has a long-standing respect for nature's elements. Always striving for an up-to-date modern aesthetic, but never at the expense of the environment, Duravit chooses manufacturing methods designed to save natural resources, using the latest technologies to create water and heat management systems.
One of the first to produce toilets that used minimal water, the company brought the McDry urinal to the market - a urinal that doesn't use water at all. Instead, it uses an effective biodegradable sealing liquid that prevents odors.
Introducing new product series on average every 1-3 years has been another successful approach. After bringing in designer Philippe Starck for a full range of wall-mount toilets and sinks in 1998, the Starck/Duravit collaboration has grown to include everything from multi-functional showers to luxurious whirlpool tubs.
From that first expansion in 1956 from earthenware to sanitary ceramics, Duravit has grown into an international operation with 10 production plants and over 5,000 employees. Drawing inspiration from the motion of water in nature and keeping a central focus of well-being and relaxation, customers can look forward to more harmonious and luxurious bathroom designs and products from this global company with the largest selection available in today's market.
