In addition to the SensoWash® Starck f Shower Toilet designed by prominent designer Philippe Starck, a French industrial architect and designer, Duravit will also bring its other best-sellers, such as integrated intelligent toilets, wall-mounted toilets, and bathroom furniture, to JD. Duravit has also integrated its WeChat mini-program with its flagship store on JD, making it possible for consumers to enjoy a seamless shopping experience.
