Fine, white dust becomes visible in the harsh neon light. The Duravit employee uses a grinder to trace the iconic shapes of the Cape Cod bath and smoothes over the elegant transitions with his hand. In the polishing booth, it’s almost as if the bath was standing on a stage, illuminated by a spot light, waiting for the final adjustments before making its entrance. “Every product is unique because it is individually crafted. Our grinders know every curve of their bath in detail, thereby ensuring an optimum final result”, explains Eric Mercier, Head of the Duravit Solid Surface production facility in France.
