The best from the North
by Fabian Peters | 8/31/2017
In Copenhagen’s North Harbor a new lease of life has been found for a former coal crane – in the form of a hideaway that doubles up as a show of Danish design prowess.
Keeping abreast of the times
Duravit rolls out X-Large in new look
With new surface finishes, new design details and additional items, Duravit has continuously renewed the X-Large range, keeping this popular furniture collection, fir
st launched in 2000, abreast of the times. This roll-out system has made X-Large a fashionable modern classic, up-to-date but not at the mercy of fashion. This year it is being further upgraded through the addition of three new surface finishes, a mobile
storage unit with seat and a great solution for guest bathrooms thanks to the built-in towel basket.
Individual solutions for the guest bathroom
The ceramic elements in the new guest bathroom design are washbasins from the Vero rang
e - either as a 40 cm wide version with central tap fittings or an elongated version with just 23 cm projection and side-mounted tap fittings.
The classic clean lines are mirrored in the vanity unit, which has exactly the same dimensions, and continu
es in a slim cuboid shape. The doors can be mounted on the left or right as required and as a special extra there is a 30 cm cabinet, which can not only hold guest towels but also has a hinged door with pull-out chrome basket for the used towels.
/>This cabinet can be fitted on its own or side by side with the vanity unit in which case a panel top provides a finishing touch. To round off the range, X-Large also offers a matching mirror to produce a personalised solution for a perfectly designed w
ashing area in the main or guest bathroom.
New surface finishes for new design ideas
Small rooms in particular benefit from a touch of well-chosen colour; creamy and subdued tones, for example, will help to make the room seem larger.
This is where the new "Cappuccino high gloss" surface comes into its own. The pastel gloss is easy on the eye and gives a delicate "coffee flavour" to the room, while the brilliance of the finish helps to exploit the power of natural
light sources. This restrained and quiet colour scheme also gives larger bathrooms an added gloss. In other cases a powerful contrast is more appropriate. The new Oak Anthracite real wood surface finish for example introduces stylish accents while the wa
rm radiance of Teak décor sets the scene beautifully. Whether contrasting or tone-in-tone, the new fashionable surfaces enhance planning flexibility and act as an inspiration for new design ideas.
Spacious, multifunctional and always to
The latest in the Duravit trolley range is a furniture item with a cushioned seat. The elegant white imitation leather upholstery in the X-Large range is inviting and can be positioned precisely where it's needed.
Ease off your
shoes or turn round to clean your teeth. This smart new item makes for greater mobility in the bathroom and also offers additional storage space.
Vanity units with open shelves, wallboards in different sizes and a cabinet in a new height of 13
2 cm round off this year's new X-Large programme items. What will the designers at Duravit come up with next?
