New series of taps – Tulum by Starck
With the new Tulum by Starck faucet series from Duravit, it has never been easier to achieve the perfect bathroom flow.
After the successful launch of “White Tulip”, Tulum represents Philippe Starck’s second series of taps for Duravit. The harmonious combination of round and angular shapes brings a timeless elegance to the collection. The faucets are highly adaptable and blend seamlessly into a diverse range of bathroom interiors and match many different ceramic series.
Positioned in the mid-price range, the faucet series makes a strong design statement – and is guaranteed by Duravit for five years.
Iconic and timeless design
For Philippe Starck, timelessness means the longevity of objects, which is one of the most important parameters today: materially, culturally and emotionally. He implements this idea in the design of Tulum through a successful symbiosis between minimalism and elegance. The slender, rectangular geometries of the spout and handle emerge from the conical body in exact parallel. The combination of round and angular elements means that the taps can be matched with organic or angular shaped sanitary objects. The flat, finely crafted spout is exactly the same width as the long, elegant lever handle. It gives the faucet its elegant appearance and ensures that the water volume and temperature can be adjusted easily and precisely. Available in two finishes – Chrome and Matt Black – Tulum harmonizes perfectly with the Starck T series of accessories, itself designed by Philippe Starck.
Extensive program for individual solutions
From compact basin taps for the small guest bathroom to extra tall models that can be combined with basins, Tulum by Starck offers the perfect solution for every situation, with basin taps available in a range of heights: S , M, and XL. The range also offers the optimal fitting solution for installation in all other areas of the bathroom – bidet, shower and bathtub: from exposed installation to concealed installation to the free-standing bath mixer. The shower head range includes hand showers and matching shower heads in a range of sizes and design variants, from round to rectangular or also as a hand shower.
Impressive quality and functionality
Tulum makes a lasting impression both visually and tactilely and also stands out for its quality with durable ceramic cartridges and perfectly finished, easy-to-clean surfaces. The harmoniously integrated aerator enriches the water jet with air and generates a soft jet. The flow rate is only 5 l/min.
In addition, basin mixers with the energy-saving FreshStart function are available in sizes S and M. At first, only cold water flows in the middle position. Hot water is only added when the user deliberately moves the handle to the left. The Duravit BlueBox®, a universal installation system for a range of faucet models (lever mixers or thermostats), is used for concealed installation. This allows the design decision to be made even after the basic assembly has been installed.
