Duravit is taking part of the National Building Museum‘s innovative, 10-month installation “Making Room: Housing for a Changing America.”

Officially opened to the public on November 18, “Making Room” examines an array of potential design solutions for the shifting demographics and lifestyles of modern-day households. Making Room’s centerpiece is a 1,000-sq.-ft. house called “The Open House” designed by Italian architect Pierliugi Colombo of Clei. The exhibit is a first-of-its-kind, configurable space, utilizing “smart technology, movable walls and multifunctional furniture” to allow visitors to engage with and observe the benefits of adjustable living situations.

Focused on highlighting the advantages of bathroom technology for an aging and diversifying population, Duravit has provided a variety of bathroom furniture, ceramics and toilets that promote accessibility, ease-of-use, sustainability and hygienic technology. Duravit’s products, including the OpenSpace B Shower Screen and ME by Starck toilet, highlight how innovative bathroom technology can benefit and improve the household.
