Saphirkeramik: when intense creativity and experimentation generate products of the highest quality and technology.

Collections made with the innovative material, designed by Konstantin Grcic, Toan Nguyen and the Kartell by Laufen collection created by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, that’s where integrated projects meet the quality and research of Laufen.

During the Bienniale Interieur Kortrijk, Laufen Bathrooms proved its position as an international leader of bathroom solutions and of state of the art innovation and technology. The unique stand will consisted of important new developments, original projects and increasingly ambitious goals.

Showcasing InoVal and Kartell by Laufen, its key collections, Laufen presented itself as the Swiss bathroom design leader, who has gained widespread popularity and success, also thanks to the invention of the extraordinary avant-garde ceramic material Saphirkeramik, which has led to the development of high-performance products.

 

SAPHIRKERAMIK
The cutting edge of Laufen, since its development in 2013 after years of research, is Saphirkeramik, a unique, revolutionary high-tech ceramic material, much thinner and lighter than traditional ceramics, with extraordinary properties of hardness and strength, and outstanding flex resistance. These exceptional characteristics have allowed Laufen to create a new generation of products, thanks to the contributions of highly acclaimed designers like Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, Konstantin Grcic and Toan Nguyen, who have been able to hone their ideas with a material that offers maximum expressive potential. They have explored its wide range of possibilities to develop concepts that have now become engineered products, ready for large-scale marketing and distribution.

KARTELL BY LAUFEN by Roberto and Ludovica Palomba
The result of the established partnership between the iconic design of Kartell and the innovative quality of Laufen,
the Kartell by Laufen collection includes a complete range of furnishings, accessories, fixtures and faucets designed by the award-winning duo Ludovica and Roberto Palomba. Quality, innovation, research on materials, emotion, glamour, energy and colour: these are just some of the ingredients and values of a project that was born a winner and from its outset has reaped amazing success on the market and with design critics.

VAL by Konstantin Grcic
The creative brilliance of Konstantin Grcic, together with his great ability to take new materials and new production methods to their limits, has led to the eclectic VAL collection in Saphirkeramik. First presented at the Salone del Mobile 2014 in Milan/Italy as a concept for several washstands with 3D textural surfaces, the collection has been transformed into solutions with simple, functional but at the same time highly functional design.

INO by Toan Nguyen
Beginning in 2011, the collaboration between Laufen and Toan Nguyen has led to the creation of the INO series, for which the french designer has explored the almost infinite possibilities for working with Saphirkeramik, exploiting its thin lightness to produce an aesthetic of simple, elegant lines.
The starting point is the archetypal form of the washbasin, reinterpreted to create a practical, functional product for everyday use with a very appealing image.
