“We have worked a great amount of time on the Cape Cod bathtub, with tenth of millime-tre accuracy between shape and function, and on this new material we developed with Duravit, the DuraSolid. It is surprisingly smooth, surprisingly feminine, and surprisingly human to the touch. It is also incredibly bright and deep, and extraordinarily solid. Dura-Solid allows a sculpture-shaped bathtub with amazing light effects and a fine interplay between light and shadow.” PHS
“The Cape Cod collection is really a new way of life, of living in your house, in your body, of living with one another.” PHS
“Everything we don't really need is useless, and every useless thing is mostly dangerous in our society, and will become obsolete one way or the other. So this collection ME is mainly and simply about us, about me, about you, without any design gesture, without any trendiness, without any advertising effect, it is all about what we really need. With the Duravit engineers, we looked into true ergonomics, true body movements, how the water flows, how to have less dirt and how to clean up more easily. These seem very humble but, done with fundamental and structural honesty, there are the most incredible things. ” PHS

Il réclame un design de haute volée.
