The new Qatego bathroom series, designed for Duravit by Studio F. A. Porsche features wood, ceramic, and natural stone come together to create a harmonious bathroom design.

The range includes a bathtub, washbasins, WC, bidet and a variety of furniture options. The cabinets feature hinged doors, mirrors, and mirrored cabinets with a storage shelf. The open shelves with optional lighting break up the strict, geometric form of the furniture and introduce a homely atmosphere.

“With Qatego we took our lead from people’s requirements in the familiar and intimate surroundings of the bathroom. That’s why it was important for us to lend the objects a strong emotional quality that goes beyond mere functionality,” Henning Rieseler, design director at Studio F. A. Porsche describes the creative process.

The rounded form of the sanitary objects is striking when seen against the linear and minimalistic design of the cabinets. “As a material, ceramic tends to have softer forms due to the working and the firing processes, while our perception of furniture is generally box-like,” said the design studio.

Playing with colours & materials

The furniture of the Qatego bathroom range is made from sustainable PEFC*-certified wood, is available in eight colours ranging from High Gloss White, natural and reserved nuances such as Taupe Matt and Basalt Matt, as well as strong shades such as Graphite Matt. Additionally, wood tones such as Marbled Oak, Black Oak, Terra Oak, and Natural Oak round off Qatego’s colour spectrum inspired by nature.


The rectangular washbasins are available in four variants: as a wall-mounted model as well as an above-counter basin with a tap platform that offers adequate storage space. These are joined by a semi-recessed basin and a built-in basin with characteristically arched sides that is available with a matching, seamlessly integrated console vanity unit. The design highlight of the series is the above-counter basin measuring 600 x 400 mm which, in addition to the standard version, is also available in a variant with strongly arched sides.


The freestanding bathtub is made from DuroCast Plus mineral cast with molded-in colour and a fine velvety surface. As with the acrylic built-in bathtub, an ergonomically shaped lumbar support supports the lower back area and guarantees pleasant sitting comfort.


Toilet & bidet

A wall-mounted and free-standing toilet and bidet that blend seamlessly into the overall concept round off the sanitary objects. Pre-fitted hinges enable the toilet seat to be quickly and easily installed.

All ceramic elements are optionally available with the antibacterial ceramic glaze HygieneGlaze, which achieves a previously unheard-of hygiene standard. After just six hours, approx. 90% of bacteria (e.g. coli bacteria) are eliminated, with approx. 99.9% eliminated after 24 hours.

The Wave faucet series designed by Duravit is the ideal companion to sanitary objects and completes the sophisticated design concept with five different finishes.
