High-contrast bathroom design


Black and white is a classic colour contrast and stands for pure opposites. In an intriguing combination of architecture and interior design, the duo continues to reinvent itself. After all, the aesthetics of abstraction have many facets. The more limited the colour palette, the greater the importance of materials and finishes. High-gloss décors can create highlights against a black-and-white backdrop. 

With his furniture series, Philippe Starck uses the contrast of light and dark to create something purely aesthetic. The vanity units in high-gloss black with their spacious drawers can be combined with both Starck 1 vanity basins and wash bowls from the new Starck 2 line. The black base accentuates the organic form of the new Starck 2 models and places the spotlight on the flowing silhouette. A distinctive feature of the Starck pieces of furniture is an elegant aluminium edge with integrated lettering. 


The black painted finishes of the PuraVida furniture harmonise with white ceramics and give the interior a high-quality look. PuraVida is all about gentle forms and an understated elegance. The curved recessed handles of the drawers reflect the flowing lines. The flash of colour within the recess emphasises the glossy black finish. 


Ceramics may shine in pure white but black introduces a highly individual look. Vero is the only bathroom range by Duravit to have a washbasin, toilet and bidet in black. With ist straight-lined design, this puristic classic is ideal for for black-and-white colour schemes.
