- David Gonzalez-Blanco, of the South Florida based firm Billy Blanco Designs, used the Duravit Cape Cod collection as inspiration for his winning Built project. Designed by Philippe Starck, the Cape Cod collection perfectly accentuates the Ontario home's bayfront master suite. The picnic table-inspired vanities are complemented by the soft curves of the freestanding bathtub and round washbasins, and Gonzalez-Blanco further played into the project's setting with elegant aqua tile.
- The Unbuilt category invited designers to redesign their own bathroom featuring Duravit's new Brioso and XSquare collections. The winning project, by Frevent Design, exudes a luxe simplicity, with the organic shapes of Duravit ceramics juxtaposed by the crisp geometry and modern wood of the furnishings.
