For decades, Duravit has stood for unparalleled craftsmanship and expertise in bathroom equipment. To this day, our products are made from the highest quality materials and with meticulous attention to detail. We’ve always built our bathroom furniture and other selected products by hand. Our bathroom series, created by top international designers, are masterful embodiments of this expertise. Duravit Artisan Lines are the design series that demand an exacting degree of know-how, craftsmanship and maximum precision. They'll turn your bathroom into an individualized room full of character while meeting the highest standards for comfort and design.
Artisan Lines – Handcrafted in Our Factory
The craftsmanship that goes into Duravit Artisan Lines is the primary focus at our production facilities in Hornberg, Schenkenzell, Meißen and Bischwiller. We don’t rely on mass production. Instead, our products are manufactured with the utmost level of care and with a keen eye for even the smallest of details. To guarantee their exceptional quality and originality, Duravit Artisan Lines aren’t produced by purely mechanical means. They’re manufactured by the skilled hands of a professional artisan.
Of course, we also select the materials used in our Artisan Lines with the utmost care. Sophisticated, delicate shapes like those in the Vitrium or Bento Starck Box series can be effortlessly created thanks to our DuroCast material with its extraordinary feel, manufactured using a mineral casting process. This is also part of what makes the Artisan Lines designer bathrooms truly unique.
You'll find a veritable "who's who" of the design world behind Duravit Artisan Lines. Our long-standing partner and star designer Philippe Starck plays a key role in this series. This is also true of Christian Werner, who thinks of the bathroom as a comfortable retreat and who has several successful partnerships with Duravit under his belt. New designers on the scene include Sebastian Herkner, who exemplifies outstanding design quality with his first complete bathroom series.
Artisan Lines—Design Series of the Highest Quality
Design by Christian Werner
In the Vitrium series by Christian Werner, different shapes come together to produce a minimalist design. Round countertop sinks are combined with a linear console vanity, for example, while the minimal furniture depth ensures that the products in the series can also fit easily into bathrooms with space constraints. All the bathroom vanities in this series are also made from the high-quality DuroCast mineral composite material.
With Zencha, the shooting star of a designer Sebastian Herkner—inspired by traditional Japanese rituals and craftsmanship—has created a well-thought-out bathroom series that combines unusual countertop sinks with purist furniture. The most striking design feature of the sink and the bathtub is the rounded shape, which ends in a graceful, softly curved outward edge.
Japanese influences also play a leading role in the Bento Starck Box bathroom series—designed by none other than Philippe Starck. The inspiration for this series came from the divisions in the classic Japanese bento box. These are a particularly prominent feature of the sinks in the series. The intelligent division into wet and dry areas also serves as an esthetic highlight.
The White Tulip series also stems from Philippe Starck's inexhaustibly creative spirit. This series is divided into two different versions: Nature and Culture. True to their names, Nature relies primarily on subtle, natural colors and materials, whereas the focus of the Culture series is on its expressive details. This is how a distinctive work of art is created.
