OUTSTANDING DESIGN

Although exquisite craftsmanship has always been a trademark of LAUFEN products, a great deal of thought goes into their design too. For several decades now, LAUFEN has had positive experience of the successful collaboration with outstanding architects and designers. In the development of new bathroom suite concepts, the expectations of the designer are met by the experience and precision of modellers, product developers and engineers.

The shared objective: to shape the elegant materials as intelligently and pragmatically as possible while maximizing their aesthetic appeal, minimising the impact on the environment while using resources as sparingly as possible. The company's product range is further enhanced by innovative material developments through the production of a near white porcelain body that allows smaller radii and a slimmer appearance. This interplay of creative design concepts and a precise manufacturing process using state-of-the-art technology facilitates an approach to the bathroom as an environment – an intelligent composition of the sum of its parts.

The result: a highly functional and aesthetic product range. From ceramic sanitary ware, through to faucets, bathroom furniture and mirrors, to shower trays, bathtubs and whirl systems – in all price categories. At the same time, we use our knowledge and experience to achieve a high degree of individuality, in line with the wishes of our customers. As well as additional colours, surface finishes and motifs, made-to-measure washbasins that can be cut to the required size are possible, also with short delivery times.

The aesthetically-appealing design and high compositional quality of LAUFEN products have won over many international judges and independent organisations, with awards being won by individual products, whole product ranges and even innovative materials and showrooms.
