Philippe Starck has done it again. His continued collaboration with Duravit has proven to be inspiring and versatile for use in a range of bathroom styles. The unmistakable salty seaside style of Cape Cod serves as his inspiration for his newest bathroom collection. We’re taking a look into the new Cape Cod Collection by Philippe Starck from Duravit.
The Cape Cod collection drums up images of this East Coast gem: crystal clear water laps up onto sprawling beaches dotted with seafood shacks and quaint villages nestled along the water, as towering lighthouses keep watch over the Atlantic. It’s a romantic scene, crisp white sails and nautical hues drift into view. Philippe Starck’s collection not only captures this scene, but transforms it into a modern elegance that straddles the line between indoors and out.
Sinks + Vanities
Organic shapes of warm ceramic washbowls meander with solid woods, exemplified by the Cape Cod Vanities. By providing multiple wood finishes, the collection can reflect what’s in your natural environment. The vanities are also available in two options of either an open style version or one with built-instorage. There are also three washbasins, each with a unique soft-edge silhouette.
You’ll notice that both the washbasins and bathtubs feature surprisingly thin rims, which were achieved using Duravit’s material DuraSolid. The satin-finish in a soft white complements the curves of these bathtubs nicely. There are also several installation options for the bathtubs, though I have to say the wall installation provides a unique touch. While the corner tub installation is a great space-saving option with a unique silhouette, the freestanding tub is a always stunner.
The LED lighted mirror is beautiful both on and off. The textured transparent frame offers a subtle accent that helps to evenly diffuse the light.
