Expanding on its SensoWash series, Duravit has introduced its first shower-toilet that combines iconic design with technical innovations such as automatic open and close, auto flush, odor extraction, and seat sensor.
“Duravit prides itself on setting, not following, the trends of ‘what’s next’ in the bathroom space,” says Tim Schroeder, Duravit USA president “and we believe in coming out of the gate with perfection. SensoWash i is a testament to that. After years of development and refinement, we’re proud to introduce a shower-toilet that achieves both the highest standards in technology and design for your future bathroom.”

Available as SensoWash i Plus or Lite, the toilet is a self-contained ceramic unit with electronic flushing system and modern bidet comfort. SensoWash functions are operated via remote control, storing personal preferences for two different user profiles, but it can also be operated via smartphone using the new SensoWash app (for Android or IOS).
The unit offers Smart finishing touches, such as the motion sensor for touchless lid, which opens via the SensoWash i Plus app. “In all versions, water temperature, warm air dryer, water spray intensity, and spray wand position can be easily adjusted,” the company says. “The flush function and odor extraction may also be controlled via the remote control or app. Individual settings and comfort functions can be controlled for the heated toilet seat via app, including the popular night light function with an LED that illuminates the inner basin.”
SensoWash i features a stainless steel sheeted spray wand and nozzle that are cleaned automatically before and after each use. Homeowners may detach the nozzle for further cleaning. The unit also offers an energy-saving mode, which can be set via app in seven individual modes. “Additionally, the heated seat shuts off automatically when SensoWash is not used for 48 hours,” the company adds. “Other innovative and hygienic add-ons are available, such as Duravit’s patented antibacterial HygieneGlaze 2.0 coating. This game-changing finish is baked into the ceramic surface during the firing process, acting fast and effectively to kill 99.999% of germs within a short period of time and providing lasting protection.
Designed by Philippe Starck, SensoWash is loaded with tons of other features, including rearwash; ladywash; oscillating comfortwash; adjustable spray wand position; adjustable water temperature; adjustable water-spray intensity; automatic lid opening and closing; electromotive actuated lid; soft-closing mechanism; adjustable seat temperature; adjustable warm air dryer temperature; and more.
Offering a rimless bowl design, the toilet uses an electronically controlled pump that engages a lateral water outlet on the upper bowl rim. The optional eco flush system is also environmentally friendly: SensoWash i flushes with 0.82 or 1.16 gallons of water.
