New York — Luxury bathroom furnishings manufacturer Duravit has opened Duravit New York, a new 4,000-sq.-ft. showroom on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, the company announced.
Designed by Stuttgart-based architects Schmutz & Partner, Duravit New York, according to the company, “is both a unique exhibition space for products and a clear communication of the Duravit brand.”
“The bathroom is currently undergoing a major transformation, as the notion of living bathrooms gains momentum among lifestyle and furnishing experts,” said Franz Kook, Duravit’s chairman. “In contrast to the demands of everyday life, today’s bath offers modern users a desired space for relaxation and regeneration.
“It’s in keeping with this vision that Duravit New York represents a marriage of two seeming opposites: An expansive showroom space evoking wellness and tranquility has met its match in the form of a bustling Manhattan avenue.”
Said Kook: “Duravit New York transcends the traditional, defying spatial boundaries in creation of the ultimate living space for Duravit’s living bathrooms.”
