Duravit’s rich history of ceramic production reaches back over 200 years. In 1817 Georg Friedrich Horn stared a ceramics factory in Hornberg that focussed on the production of crockery and cookware. Fast forward to the 1950s and production moved to sanitaryware and the Duravit name was introduced to the world of bathrooms.
Today, Duravit is truly a global brand with production plants all over the world and collaborations with a diverse range of leading designers with over 220 design awards across the product range. Despite this, they remain committed to their core values of quality and sustainability with many products still crafted by hand at their ceramic factory and headquarters at Hornberg, in the heart of Germany’s Black Forest.
