As the American household is changing, Universal Design, or the concept of creating a space that can be used by everyone regardless of age or ability, is an important topic. According to a recent statistic from the National Building Museum, “Our population is aging rapidly and will need new housing solutions that can support aging-in-place with diminished physical or cognitive abilities. America’s housing supply, however, has been slow to respond to these extraordinary demographic shifts.” According to the Center for Universal Design, “barrier-free design and architectural accessibility recognizes the legal, economic and social power of a concept that addresses the…needs of people with and without disabilities.” In recognition that such features can be provided en mass in ways that are attractive and marketable, the Universal Design movement has been able to make a positive impact across the design industry in America. Duravit is committed to staying ahead of product development trends, pushing the needle forward to adhere to market needs and codes where ADA compliancy and Universal Design compatibility are concerned.
