Duravit White Tulip Collection

December 8, 2021

Duravit USA is pleased to introduce White Tulip, a new holistic bathroom collection designed by Philippe Starck. White Tulip is inspired by the organic silhouette of a tulip in full bloom. Its elegant aesthetics, ergonomic design and the delicate execution of each of the collection’s components adds sophisticated luxury to any bathroom. 

For the new Duravit collection, Starck’s primary intention was to create a collection that naturally fits into our lives. Inclusive of furniture, washbasins and bathtubs (with future additions to come), the collection brings new beauty to the bathroom for optimal relaxation and self-reflection. The collection also features cutting-edge technologies like soft-closing and push-to-open drawers. 

Starck brings three beautiful freestanding bathtub designs to market within his White Tulip collection. Mirroring the blooming aesthetic of the washbasins, the freestanding bathtub design is available in an ovular shape in both a compact size (63 inches) and regular size (70 inches). An elegant, round freestanding bathtub with a diameter of 70 inches equally brings the refined language of the collection to the bathroom.

The freestanding washbasin evokes a tulip in bloom. Available completely in ceramic or with an integrated cabinet at the base in any of the collection’s furniture finishes, this dramatic fixture commands the central focus of any bathroom. The freestanding basins can be plumbed to the wall or the floor, as necessary, to accommodate water connections. The collection also features delicate outward sloping-edged above-counter basins that impress with their aesthetic. Furniture washbasins and hand-rinse basins are also available. 

A full suite of furniture offers elegant and refined solutions in a range of sizes and finishes. The miter-cut, finely crafted edges across the furniture are a testament to the precise composition of the White Tulip design language. Wall-mounted and floor-standing vanities can be paired with matching semi-tall cabinets with two or three glass shelves for added storage. Another special furniture element is the floor-standing chrome console with wooden shelves.

Finishes available include five high-quality colors (Nordic white, white, taupe, stone grey and graphite) in either high-gloss or satin matte lacquer as well as solid wood (natural oak or American walnut). Notably, the satin matte finishes feature scratch resistance and anti-fingerprint technology.
Starck added further interest to his White Tulip furniture designs with the option to include a distinctive circular chrome handle. As a unique design option, these handles offer a striking contrast to the matte or high-gloss lacquers and solid wood surfaces. The design is echoed in the towel holders available singularly or as a pair on the floor-standing console. 

The extraordinary shapes of all components within the White Tulip collection offer exquisite design options. The nuances of the material, elegant finishes and wellness enhancements easily create a calming oasis in the bathroom for a rejuvenating start and end to the day.
