Duravit USA is pleased to share that its newest SensoWash® shower-toilet, SensoWash® Starck f, has won an Azure 2021 AZ Award for Architectural Product Design. Designed by Philippe Starck, the striking minimalist design of this new shower-toilet expands Duravit’s industry-leading SensoWash® offerings, allowing for greater design flexibility. The “f” within its name stands for flat, as its design forms a precise, harmonious unit. Available in two versions - SensoWash® Starck f Plus and SensoWash® Starck f Lite for wall-hung or one-piece toilets - it offers a sleek, minimal design and integrated technology for maximum comfort and ease of use.

“We believe that nothing is as thorough, as hygienic, as natural, and as refreshing as cleansing with water. With the addition of SensoWash® Starck f, we now offer 45 different solutions within the shower-toilet category. We can truly deliver the highest level of comfort and hygiene to everyone, regardless of style, preference, or budget,” says Tim Schroeder, President and CEO of Duravit North America.

When Duravit and Philippe Starck first introduced Sensowash® more than 10 years ago, it was a revolutionary product that unified high design quality and shower-toilet technology for the first time. Today, the collection features a myriad of models combining innovative technology with comfort, including Sensowash® Starck, SensoWash® Slim, Sensowash® i, and now SensoWash® Starck f. The latest iteration, SensoWash® Starck f, continues to raise the bar on industry standards. At first glance, Sensowash® Starck f is a very attractive, conventional toilet, however it is actually a highly-evolved designer shower-toilet, housing all shower-toilet and toilet functions within its ceramic body. The technology of the shower-toilet is fully integrated in order to offer a minimal and clean design language across the product. The flat seat and the white cover located behind it form a flush-fitting unit. Operated via a remote control or smartphone app, users can easily program profile settings for maximum comfort. With additional features including an automatic open and close lid, auto flushing, Comfort-, Lady- and Rear-wash shower-toilet functions, a heated seat, adjustable water temperature, a controllable hot air dryer, and more, the SensoWash® Starck f is designed to provide heightened hygiene and wellness for its users.

SensoWash® Starck f also includes Duravit’s Rimless® flushing technology, providing improved water flow for perfect flushing results. HygieneGlaze, an industry-leading material science innovation from Duravit, also comes standard in both the plus and lite SensoWash® Starck f models, providing germ-fighting innovation. HygieneGlaze, baked into the ceramic during firing, is proven to kill 90% of bacteria after six hours, and 99.999% after 24 hours. The optimized formula of the HygieneGlaze arrests the growth of bacteria through “oligodynamic reaction” - the effect of positively charged metal ions colliding with bacteria.

The debut of SensoWash® Starck f ushers in a new era and feel for hygiene and wellness. Leading with minimal design and powerful technology, SensoWash® Starck f adds luxury and maximum comfort to the bath in a wall-hung or one-piece lite or plus model.
