Bathroom manufacturer Duravit has furnished the bathrooms at the new BMW Welt in Munich, designed by architect Coop Himmelb(l)au. The BMW Welt was designed as a “communication building” – a piece of open city, financed, built and made available to the public by a private business. Located between Olympia Park and the BMW tower, the BMW Welt boasts a sweeping roof – 16,500 square metres in size – that dominates the form.
Addressing 75,000 square metres of internal space, Duravit supplied fittings from across its range for bathrooms in the lounges, restaurants, shops and showroom – in fact, more than 160 pieces of sanitaryware within the building bear the Duravit label.
Several different Duravit ranges were used. Washbasin units from the ceramic ranges Vero and Starck 3 and wall-mounted toilets and Starck 1 urinals reflect the high aesthetic and functional standards of the building and the manufacturer’s cars.
Duravit bathroom designs provided an ideal match for the wide range of requirements posed by the building’s different bathroom areas, from stylish bathrooms to toilets for people with disabilities.
