Having already been the recipient of the iF Design Award 2019, the jury of the internationally renowned Red Dot Award has also honoured Duravit’s XSquare series.
This modern and beautiful furniture range was produced in accordance with Kurt Merki Jr. and characterises a distinctive original look. The interaction between diverse materials is what generates its unique appearance. The high-quality surfaces of the cabinets and vanity units are framed by quadrant-shaped chrome profiles, a striking design feature that expounds on the series’ modern elegance.
A holistic vibe has been created by carrying on with the modish chrome profile along the sides of the XSquare mirror. The mirrors flaunt an array of convenient features like integrated mirror heating and a contactless infinitely variable coloured light switch function. Warm light fashions a delightful ambience, while cold light is ideal for applying makeup. A memory control also permits an effortless retrieval of the desired light colour and intensity levels.
XSquare proffers a multitude of combination options and seamlessly complements the current DuraSquare, Vero Air, ME by Starck and P3 Comforts ceramic series. Twenty-eight furniture finishes in décor matt or lacquer, satin-matt or high-gloss allows for endless individual design choices. Handle-free fronts with push-to-open technology provide the finishing touches to its graceful comportment, while granting the addition of smoothly closing doors.
The Red Dot Award “Product Design” honours the best products of each year. True to its maxim “in search of good design and innovation,” a jury of around forty strong members assesses the products individually as originals. The criteria evaluated by the international experts include the level of innovation and the functionality of the product, in addition to the high quality of design.
