Duravit’s Starck 2 line was first released in 1988 with organic, water-inspired forms. Designer Philippe Starck continued the aesthetic through new pieces, including a sink, tub, and shower tray. The ceramic sink (shown here) was inspired by the shape from the original Starck 2 series, but elongated into a delicate oval with a flat base.
The updated acrylic bathtub features a neck rest for extended soaking and added comfort.

Duravit’s partnership with design powerhouse Philippe Starck has been recognized with accolades and awards across the globe. The latest honor comes close to home, in Atlanta, GA, the location of Duravit’s US Headquarters.
Through September 17, Duravit Starck will be on display as part of a popular exhibit entitled WaterDream: the Art of Bathroom Design, mounted at the newly relocated Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA).
Since its opening at the end of June, the WaterDream exhibit has been getting great response from thousands of visitors from Georgia and beyond. The exhibit touches everyone as it explores the history of the bath through a four-part, visual journey from early 19th century Europe to today’s global market.
