VIU | Countertop washbasin
Countertop rectangular ceramic washbasin
With the Viu ceramics range, the XViu furniture range, and the matching bathtubs, Duravit and sieger design present a complete bathroom range that exudes forward-looking design. The post-industrial elegance of the pieces emerges from the interaction of soft, organic forms with a precise geometry and details finished to a previously unattained level of perfection. Sharp contrasts arise from surfaces that combine the finest ceramics, glass and metal with matt lacquers or high-quality woods.
The new range covers the entire bathroom: the washing, bathing and toilet area. Recurrent design elements and special details are defining elements of the harmonious interior design. The highlight is a washing area variant based on the patented Duravit c-bonded technology. The exterior is a strict rectangle, while the interior features gentle organic curves with a spacious inner basin and generous shelf. The edge running along the tap platform continues as a subtle outer line. The subtle detail of the horizontal overflow within the basin underlines the horizontal alignment of the external shape. The ceramic on the inside is reminiscent of the softness of water. Some surprising details: The white ceramic cover of the push-open valve is flush with the inner basin in the open position. The prominent contour of the supporting metal console with its V-shape profile in elegant Champagne Matt or avant garde Black Matt creates dynamic interest. Individual combinations can be realized thanks to the glass shelf which is available in four colors.
From a different angle, the three-dimensional feet of the metal console are visually transformed into fine lines. This level of perfection extends right into the tiniest detail. The acrylic paneling on the underside of the basin conceals the fixing structure, cables, and connecting hoses, with the result that the elaborate technology, for example for the D. 1e electronic faucet, does not impact the design.
Fully glazed from beneath, the Viu washbasins, available in five sizes as well as a handrinse basin, are also ideally suited as individual solutions. Their shape follows the design of the c-bonded washbasin. The alternative variants for the washing area, with furniture washbasin, built-in washbasin, or above-counter washbasin and matching vanity unit with pull-out compartment or two drawers, feature striking V-shaped lateral aluminum profiles, which are also available in Champagne Matt and Black Matt. This lends the XViu furniture range its striking contour. Tone-in-tone as well as contrasting options can produce different combinations using a variety of materials. A range of high-quality real-wood, lacquer and décor finishes create a wealth of style collections from “Silver” to “Dark”.
