Duravit uses groundbreaking technology for new Vero Air collection
Duravit's new Vero Air retains the iconic, rectangular character of the Vero washbasins whilst introducing the company's patented c-bonded technology - combining the unmistakable character of the original with a new level or precision and perfect proportions.
The straight interior surface and precise edges of the Vero Air washbasins reflect the collection's linear charm.
The c-bonded technology sees the washbasin and vanity unit being combined to form a minimalist masterpiece, with the washbasin connected almost seamlessly to the vanity unit in a complex process. The material thickness of the washbasin is hidden from view and reduced to the precise rim that, at the transition between the cool, smooth ceramic and the natural structure of the wood, feels pleasant to the touch.
Manufactured with millimetre precision, the furniture begins exactly where the ceramic ends. The materials blend together seamlessly to form a single, harmonious unit. Three generous widths are available: 800mm, 1000mm and 1200mm in a choice of wall-hung with single or double drawers.
The C-bonded solution does not just look and feel impressive: DuraCeram, the patented special ceramic that actually makes this precision and moulding possible, is particularly wear-resistant. The large shelves at the sides are very practical and the smooth, seamless surfaces are also quick and easy to clean.
The vanity units of the L-Cube furniture feature Tip-On technology with its gentle push to open and close action. There are 31 colour finishes including matt and lacquered options, and a wide range of wood including the new subtly textured Oak Cashmere real wood veneer.
