In conjunction with designer Kurt Merki Jr., Duravit has created a furniture range that is specially attuned to the design of the contemporary DuraSquare washbasins. The striking feature is the quadrant-shaped chrome profile edging the furniture. On the floor-standing model, the transition to the leg frame is seamless. The chrome profile accentuates the edges of both variants. It continues the corner radius of the washbasin, creating harmony and at the same time a striking independence. Combined with cupboards, mirrors, and mirror-cabinet solutions from the range, also designed with the conspicuous chrome profile, luxurious washing areas for an elegantly contemporary furnishing style can be created. XSquare offers various combination options and perfectly matches the current DuraSquare, Vero Air, ME by Starck and P3 Comforts ceramic series. High-quality and uniform interior design ideas can therefore be realized, including freestanding or built-in bathtubs, toilets, tap fittings, shower trays, and accessories. The sky is the limit in terms of both the potential variants and the choice of colors. The console washbasin vanity units are available in up to five different sizes (800-1600 mm) depending on the ceramics, thus also offering space for generous dual washbasin solutions. Compact versions round off the range for all manner of rooms and design requirements. The selection of vanity units is extremely varied: up to seven different widths can be chosen for the DuraSquare, Vero Air, ME by Starck or P3 Comforts vanity units, depending on the series. The option of one or two drawers applies for all vanity units. These are fitted with high-quality drawer dividers in Maple or Walnut. The tall cabinet and semi-tall cabinet offer additional storage space in widths of 420 or 500 mm. Three new, special furniture finishes - matt light blue, matt concrete gray, and satin-matt eggplant – as well as the linen decor finish round off the wide color range. Overall 28 furniture finishes in décor matt or lacquer, satin-matt or high-gloss are available. Choosing a console panel in one of the cabinet colors or additionally in solid Natural Walnut permits completely new and individual color combinations for XSquare. Two or even three colors in combination with the lacquer finish, chrome profile, and console panel give rise to new contrasts and high-class design options. Handle-free fronts with push-to-open technology subtly highlight the elegant and inspiring overall picture. The new furniture program has a striking effect, setting clearly structured accents in the room. Duravit offers mirrors in eight widths (450 to 1600 mm) and mirror cabinets in four widths (600 to 1200 mm), each designed to coordinate perfectly with the furniture. The lateral chrome profile forms the edging, continuing the design language of the furniture. The mirror surface features the new control panel: it permits contact-free control of the main light (from 35 mm-wide lighting strips on the right and left), ambilight, and mirror heating via a sensor. Further, all mirrors have a new, convenient switching function for colored light: at a luminosity of more than 300 lux, the light color can be continuously adjusted from 2700 (warm light) to 6500 kelvin (cold light). Warm light creates a pleasant atmosphere, while cold light is best for applying makeup. The memory function ensures that the required light color and intensity do not need to be reset when used frequently. Similarly, the functional organization of the inside of the mirror cabinets - with storage boxes, a board for accessories and a magnetic strip for small accessories, such as scissors or tweezers - is also new.
