It all began in Hornberg, Germany in 1817 when Georg Friedrich Horn built an earthenware factory initially focused solely on the manufacture of crockery. In 1956, production evolved from earthenware to porcelain, extending the product range to include sanitary ceramics. This provided a platform for future success and also introduced the sanitary world to a new name: Duravit.
Created by internationally renowned designers, manufactured with the utmost care and precision, Duravit products offer superb planning flexibility down to the very last detail. Perhaps that’s why you will find the Duravit brand all over the world – on ceramics, furniture, baths and whirlpools, shower trays and accessories, which stand as a testament to a standard of design and quality that is anything but run of the mill.
As a company dedicated to innovation, Duravit sees things a little differently. We have achieved the best results, not simply keeping abreast of the times, but by constantly reinventing ourselves and our products. Numerous technical innovations and practical developments such as Sensowash, HygieneGlaze ceramic and rimless toilets serve as testimony to the innovative strength of the Duravit brand.
Innovation is also crucial when it comes to design, with a strategy that has proven successful – the Duravit brand’s many innovative forms have received numerous international design awards and have transformed us from a small earthenware factory to a leading global company.
