Mori Tiny House: A Duravit bathroom in a small space

A sustainable jewel in the heart of Velwue forest, Netherlands, incorporating top-level Duravit bathroom equipment

A perfect combination of sustainability and the wabi-sabi approach

Photographer Muk van Lil and her partner Nick are the owners who built the unique tiny house in the Veluwe woods close to Zandenplas in the Netherlands in 2022. The so-called “Mori”, Japanese for “forest”, serves as a holiday residence and includes well-selected pieces of the Happy D.2 Plus collection from Duravit to offer more well-being throughout the stay.

The basic component of the Mori Tiny House is the wabi-sabi approach, which foregrounds the seven Japanese principles. The three main principles of Mori are: durability, simplicity, and imperfection.

The house was built with a careful selection of materials such as robust wood and the world´s only 100-percent recyclable PVC flooring. The owners attach great importance to durable and natural materials.

In terms of aesthetics, the couple chose a color concept of bright, natural colors and wood accents to create a harmonious and cozy atmosphere. The durable and refined furnishings from the Happy D.2 Plus collection from Duravit blend in perfectly with the wabi-sabi approach and the style of the house. The different colors and materials such as white ceramic, Black Matt metal finishes and brushed walnut wood add to the tidy aesthetics.  The bathroom in the Mori Tiny House was completed by a Stonetto shower tray made from DuroCast UltraResist and a shower toilet from SensoWash® Starck f. All in all, especially the shower toilet added a nice finishing touch to the tiny house nestling in the deeper forest.



Founded in 1817 in Hornberg in the Black Forest, Duravit is today a leading international manufacturer of designer bathrooms.
