Smart toilet: SensoWash i from Philippe Starck x Duravit

Duravit has partnered with Philippe Starck to launch the SensoWash i toilet, available as SensoWash i Plus or Lite. 

SensoWash functions are operated via remote control. Personal preferences can be stored in two different user profiles. SensoWash i can also be operated via smartphone using the new SensoWash app, available for Android and iOS. 

Smart finishing touches, like the motion sensor for touchless lid, which opens via the SensoWash i Plus app, guarantee comfort. In all versions, water temperature, warm air dryer, water spray intensity, and spray wand position can be adjusted. The flush function and odor extraction may also be controlled via the remote control or app. Individual settings and comfort functions can be controlled for the heated toilet seat via app, including the night light function with an LED that illuminates the inner basin.

The stainless steel sheeted spray wand and nozzle are cleaned automatically before and after each use. The nozzle can be detached for further cleaning. SensoWash i also offers an energy-saving mode which is set via app in seven individual modes. Additionally, the heated seat shuts off automatically when SensoWash is not used for 48 hours. 

Other innovative and hygienic add-ons are available, such as Duravit’s patented antibacterial HygieneGlaze 2.0 coating. This finish is baked into the ceramic surface during the firing process, acting fast and effectively to kill 99.999 percent of germs within a short period of time and providing protection.

By using an electronically controlled pump, the highly efficient flushing of the inner bowl engages a lateral water outlet on the upper bowl rim. The optional eco flush system is also environmentally friendly: SensoWash i flushes effectively and hygienically with a water volume of 1.16 or 0.82 gallons.
