Duravit has launched a timeless bathroom furniture range – Vitrium, by Christian Werner. The space-saving range includes washbasins and furniture, manufactured with the newly developed DuroCast UltraResist material.

Vitrium was presented at ISH 2023 as a series from the Duravit Artisan Lines and represents the first washbasin project for designer Christian Werner. To date, the designer has worked with Duravit on bathroom solutions for many years and has completed six furniture projects.

Two different, delicate washbasins are available: a round above-counter basin and a rectangular, seamlessly integrated c-bonded version with a refined outer edge.

The console vanity unit has a fine metal frame and a choice of fronts made from backlit glass, wood, or various décor finishes. The metal frame is available in White or Anthracite.

“The starting point for this design concept was a rigorous interrogation of the habits we take for granted. With Vitrium I sought to redefine the design of the bathroom and the associated routines. As well as the kitchen and living room, for me the bathroom, too, is a place of comfort and refuge,” said Christian Werner.

Space-saving design

The reduced furniture depth with the projecting above-counter basin makes the design ideal for compact

“The basic design idea for the framed fronts and transparency of the furniture has been realised exactly as I imagined. Timelessly modern and unadorned – that’s the look I wanted for my Vitrium concept,” said Christian Werner.

PEFC*-certified wood

The bathroom furniture made from PEFC*-certified wood is enhanced by rectangular and round mirrors and comes with a mirrored cabinet for built-in versions. All feature integrated LED illumination.

“Vitrium epitomizes the rituals that take place in the bathroom and sets the ambitious framework for sophisticated and contemporary bathroom cultures,” said the designer, describing his idea.
