Duravit unveils Cape Cod, the latest collection designed in collaboration with Philippe Starck
Duravit has paired with its longtime collaborator Philippe Starck for a new collection inspired by the relaxed elegance of New England: Cape Cod. The series is the epitome of luxury, using a creative mix of high-end materials to create sophisticated new bathroom styles. Each detail has been thoroughly thought through to craft impeccable pieces: washbasins with modern slim rims, real wood vanity tops that make each piece unique, and a new bath material that is both durable and soft to the touch. With the design of Starck and the bathroom expertise of Duravit, the Cape Cod collection embodies the chic aesthetic of the beloved region for which the series is named.
Says Duravit USA president Tim Schroeder, “Cape Cod is more than just a collection, it’s a state of mind and an approach to bathroom design. The clean, simple products have such refinement and elegance that they elevate a space from a bathroom to a calming retreat.”
The strikingly unique vanities are the collection’s showpiece. One of four wood finish options (vintage oak, American walnut, European oak, or white beech) makes up the counter and rests on a smooth, chrome frame that creates an eye-catching diagonal with the floor. The vintage oak finish is especially stunning – each piece of wood maintains a roughly hewn shape that resembles a piece of driftwood found on the beach, making each vanity one-of-a-kind. The vanity is also available in white high gloss with the option of doors and side shelves for additional storage space.
Cape Cod also features three different washbasins – round, square, and tri-oval – all with an impressively slim rim. These delicately curved washbasins are made of Duravit’s proprietary DuraCeram, a material that allows for a strong foundation, a slender form (with a rim thickness of only 1/5 of an inch), ease of care, and impact resistance.
The chic bathtub spans out in gentle curves and features a comfortable headrest. The tub is made of a new material developed by Duravit called DuraSolid A. This matte-finished material maintains a soft, cashmere-like feel that is warm to the skin and to the touch. The Cape Cod bathtub is available in freestanding, back-to-wall, and left or right corner styles.
The Cape Cod collection also includes mirrors with optional LED lighting. Toilets from a variety of Duravit collections, especially the ME by Starck series, coordinate beautifully with this outstanding collection.
