Duravit X sieger design—Happy D.2 Plus renders bathrooms expressive with cogent form and colour
SEP 16, 2021 | By Twinkle Tolani
Founded in 1817, Duravit AG is a leading international manufacturer of designer bathrooms today. With Happy D.2 Plus, Duravit has teamed up with sieger design to realise current trends in colours, design, and finishes. The archetypical open oval of the Happy D. design classic also runs through the elements of this new, supplementary range.
Above-counter wash bowls with precise lines, stand-alone consoles and matching semi-tall cabinets as well as circular mirrors combine to create perfectly harmonised washing areas. The new range enables elegant, expressive style collections to be individually designed with a darker or lighter basic mood.
The above-counter wash basins with their narrow, characteristically flattened rim are available in three widths, of which two have an incorporated tap platform.
Their striking individuality comes from the new colour variants in Anthracite Matt or a two-tone contrast, with glossy white on the inside and Anthracite Matt on the outside.
The consistent colour concept of Happy D.2 Plus also extends to toilets and bidets, with the interior of the toilets finished in glossy Anthracite for optimum hygiene. All ceramic parts are also available in glossy white.
Subtly rounded contours, handle-free fronts, low material thicknesses, and optional interior lighting for the pull-out compartments and drawers on the bathroom furniture are highlights of the contemporary elegance of the series. Storage options are provided by console washbasin vanity units, which come in four widths.
Small, practical racks in the door of the semi-tall cabinets, which are available in two sizes, ensure perfect order in the interior. Individual style collections can be created with a total of eleven carcass surfaces to choose from — quality wood, or matt, yet practical surfaces in light and dark shades.
The Graphite Super Matt variant also comes with an anti-fingerprint coating. Happy D.2 Plus affords even greater customisation options: the console panel can be selected from a range of six finishes, enabling a range of different, expressive combinations – monochrome, harmonious tone-in-tone or contrasting.
The circular mirrors in two colours also lend an air of expressive elegance. The all-round mirror lighting strips come in two finishes — graphic-radiating (“Radial”) or bionic-geometric (“Organic”).
For maximum comfort there are the models fitted with a sensor switch, featuring dimmable light and optional mirror heating. The variant with icon control on the mirror surface also has mirror heating and the ambient light mode and switching function for coloured light.
At a luminosity of more than 300 lux, the light colour can be continuously adjusted from 2,700 (warm light) to 6,500 kelvin (cold light). With the set of two, the respective mirror functions for each side are synchronised via innovative wireless technology that is preset at the factory.
This impressive elegance is also reflected when it comes to bathing: the bathtubs made from glossy acrylic are optionally available in Graphite Super Matt with seamless panelling.
Thanks to the compact external dimensions, the various models — back-to-wall, corner right or left as well as the free-standing version — enable a high level of flexibility in room planning. The generously proportioned, ergonomic interior of all bathtub models and the optional whirl system offer pure relaxation and relaxing comfort.
