While its streamlined and striking form is in itself worthy of praise, the advanced technology concealed within the SensoWash Starck f catapults it far beyond a standard-issue loo. It is the latest iteration in a more-than-10-year collaboration between pre-eminent designer Philippe Starck and German porcelain sanitaryware manufacturer Duravit (the first version also earned an AZ Award, in 2011). The shower-toilet enhances the bathroom experience, taking it to a luxurious level that is at once spa-like and ultra-hygienic.

“In a domestic product, innovation is often limited to the form of the object. SensoWash Starck f offers more by integrating new technologies perfectly adapted to the present era.”
Gilles Saucier, AZ Awards 2021 Juror

Defined by its flat top surface (the feature behind the “f” in its name) and gently rounded base, the glossy ceramic body has a subdued elegance that belies its hard-working and fully integrated features: automatic opening and closing of the lid, three wash functions (Comfort, Lady and Rear), a controllable hot-air dryer, a night light, rimless flushing for improved water flow and more — all of which can be operated via remote control or smartphone app.

Available in wall-mount and one-piece versions, the unit is also treated with HygieneGlaze, an innovation proven to kill up to 99.99 per cent of bacteria, which is baked directly into the ceramic during the firing process. Put simply, the SensoWash Starck f is everything you want in a toilet — and then some.
