With Starck 1 , Philippe Starck and Duravit have returned to the origins of hygiene , personal care and wellness. The series therefore also describes the evolution of the bathroom . Vase , tub and sink are a clear reference to their historical ancestors : bucket , tub and basin , although completely reinterpreted . It's nice to know what is well done should not be " optimized " : since the market launch in 1994, all products of the series - sanitary ware, furniture , bathtubs and accessories - are manufactured in a workmanlike manner , with the same care and skill . You can not expect more from a modern classic like Starck 1 .
