The Beauty of Economy: The Onto Collection by Duravit

The Onto Collection, designed by Matteo Thun for Duravit, uses locally sourced wood to create a bathroom experience that is both elegant and economical.

Created for semi-public bathrooms, the collection features 16 types of furniture solutions, including plywood consoles with built-in washbasins, tall and low cabinets, an upholstered drawer unit with sitting area, a floor standing pillar-shaped vanity unit with built-in round sink, bathtubs and illuminated mirrors.

The unique combination of plywood and ceramics as featured materials is made possible by a special oil and wax treatment, which saturates the fibers of the wood to prevent water absorption. The wood consists of highly compressed and bonded layers to prevent warping, resulting in furniture that not only looks striking but is highly functional for bathroom use.

Components are designed for maximum ease of use, installation, and cleaning. A sink and console combination features a downward-sloping console for easy cleaning, and a special sink-first installation that minimizes assembly time. A “flat” tub features a purposefully shallow depth for children and people with restricted mobility, while a “compact” tub features a 22” depth deep enough to fully submerge a user in a space-friendly area of only 55” by 31 1/2.”
