KALDEWEI, Ahlen, September 2022 – KALDEWEI is equipping the solar powered catamarans of SILENT-YACHTS with Miena washbowls. In October 2022, this latest generation, which includes the first electric yachts will set sail. KALDEWEI is bringing its LUXSTAINABILITY® concept from the sanitary mainland to the seven seas for the first time as also on board are KALDEWEI washbowls made of recyclable steel enamel.
The collaboration between the German bathroom manufacturer and the shipbuilding company is sustainable in the truest sense of the word, as both share high standards when it comes to ecologically responsible products. The vessels from SILENT-YACHTS are solar powered and electric which gives them the ability to cruise and operate with zero emission.
With KALDEWEI and SILENT-YACHTS, you have two partners who both consistently place sustainability and CO2 savings at the focus of their actions. It was not until autumn 2021 that KALDEWEI produced the first premium products from CO2-reduced bluemint® Steel. For this family business, Luxstainability® means nothing less than the combination of individual luxury and sustainability. The expression marks a forward-looking strategy within the entire KALDEWEI production. From the company’s point of view, both aspects are decisive factors for contemporary bathroom design, which is now being used for the first time in modern shipbuilding.
“We believe that when it comes to yachting, sustainability goes beyond the solar-electric powertrain. We know that it takes a comprehensive approach in all areas for our passion really to work hand in hand with nature. For this reason, we base our approach on three pillars: Design, material and operations,” says designer Juliana Miguel, who is the creative lead at SILENT-YACHTS. Their design team is enthusiastic about steel enamel and the modern KALDEWEI washbasins. With its slender design, Miena skilfully adds accents to every bathroom, even on the high seas, and turns the bathroom into a place of retreat into a real area of well-being. The recyclable and durable steel enamel material makes the washbowls an easy-care, durable jewel that can withstand constant use or particularly salty air.
