New technology: Washbasin and bathroom furniture merge to form a single unit
To meet the highest design requirements in the bathroom, Duravit has developed an innovative method that involves connecting the ceramic furniture washbasin to the surface of the vanity unit to create a perfect whole.
This completely new look produces an exceptionally sleek washing area.
With this new technology, known as 'c-bonded'; the furniture washbasin is connected almost seamlessly to the vanity unit in a complex process. Thanks to the accurate and precise-fitting connecting technology, ceramic and furniture merge to form a single unit. 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 uniquely pleasant to the touch.
The 'c-bonded' solution not only looks and feels impressive: DuraCeram, the patented special ceramic that actually makes this precision and moulding possible, is particularly wear- resistant. The smooth, seamless surfaces of the washbasins are quick and easy to clean and also incorporate generous storage space.
For the first time, Duravit has used c-bonded technology with the Darling New ceramic series and L-Cube furniture.
