Duravit has been chosen to supply products for the new Victoria & Albert Museum on the banks of the Firth of Tay in Dundee, Scotland, which has been designed by Kengo Kuma to resemble the bow of a ship.

The building was inspired by the cliffs on the Scottish coast, Duravit said, and is the “centrepiece” of Dundee’s Tayside development. The museum is the first project in the UK for designer Kuma, who designed the stadium for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Duravit’s rectangular Vero washbasins have been chosen for the washrooms of the museum, which is made from thousands of wave-like stone slabs. The 1,100sq m exhibition floor of the museum features dark limestone floor with fossil imprints, alongside cafés, seating areas and circular passages.
