Bath furniture from the cylinder to the light square
The base vanity unit which Philippe Starck designed for his Starck 1 bathroom range back in 1994 is one of the best-known items of bathroom furniture. The unit with its distinctive conical form is to be found in prestigious surroundings all over the world, such as the world's highest building, the Burj Chalifa. Philippe Starck has now introduced geometric variations to this conical form for Duravit.
Vanity units for furniture basins
Low cabinets along rectangular lines
The new rectangular low cabinets come in various sizes. Starck has extended the range of geometric effects here with new ceramic console basins in circular, square and tri-oval form. A characteristic feature of these Starck furniture items is the spacious drawers which open conveniently in response to a tap of the knee. The 6 cm wide aluminium strips which adorn the sides of the drawers also feature on the corresponding tall cabinet. To match this edging, the interiors of the furniture items are painted in aluminium, creating a particularly attractive contrast to black or white paintwork or the new oak finish.
High-quality, lots of storage space
A striking feature of all pieces of furniture is the high-quality aluminium edge with integrated lettering. The conveniently large, handle-free drawers of the vanity units offer lots of storage space. A light tap is all it takes to open the drawer. It is closed with a gentle nudge. The Starck 1 washbasins are available in circular or square design.
Mirrors and mirror cabinets
A new interpretation of the mirror cabinet
Philippe Starck's new geometric approach also redefines the mirrors and mirror cabinets. All variants feature a "light square" which provides for a very soft light diffused through a special film. The additional, subtle ambient light is projected onto the wall from the top and the side. The light square is always located on the fixed right-hand part of the mirror cabinet, to which the left-hand part is connected via a swiveling axis. Aluminum-colored wooden boxes are fitted to the rear side of the swiveling part. These boxes swing out to the front when required, ensuring that all the bathroom items required on a daily basis are immediately accessible. A new interpretation of the mirror cabinet – simple, but effective!
