Summary
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.

Identifying an exciting new window of opportunity, Pella’s hardware allows select awning and casement windows to be opened with the slide of a knob, rather than the crank of a handle. Integrated into a window’s jamb or sill for a modern, unobtrusive look, the clever control connects to a ball bearing and Kevlar-reinforced belt to open windows in a smooth, continuous motion. As the knob is quite easy to grip and requires little physical effort to slide up or down, it’s particularly well-suited to individuals with arthritis.

“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.”
