Danish designer Cecilie Manz embraces Nordic elegance and subtle color in Luv bathroom series for Duravit
“When I was drawing up my design for Duravit, the image in my mind’s eye from the very start was a bowl filled with water on a simple table,” said the Danish designer Cecilie Manz. This image inspired Duravit’s Luv bathroom series, which affords brand new design opportunities for larger rooms or guest bathrooms.
Luv’s unusual design combines Nordic purism and timeless elegance. Gentle forms follow a sharp geometry. The selection of materials and colors is testament to Cecilie Manz’s refined sense for nuanced form. Her color palate of matt lacquers and glazes in soft shades was developed exclusively for Duravit and emphasizes the fresh character of Luv.
Oval above-counter basins made from DuraCeram® impress with their subtle lines, generous inner basins, and clean edges. The optionally glazed exterior is available in satin matte White, Grey or Sand. This contrast with the glossy white glazed inner basin produces unique pieces with a special look and feel. Ceramic drain covers complete and overall harmonious look.
The washbasin stand consists of a console table on four gently curved, height-adjustable feet. Using this unique design language, Cecilie Manz skilfully realizes the original image of a table and water bowl.
Luv also offers no-nonsense bathtubs that are based on the shape of the wash bowls. Seamless, and made from DuraSolid A, they offer a pleasantly warm feel and high-quality matte look. They are available in free-standing, back-to-wall and corner (left or right) versions. As a special extra, the bathtub can be equipped with a discreetly integrated air whirl system (exclusive to the back-to-wall and corner version), or with an integrated sound system which can be operated using any Bluetooth-compatible device.
