Laufen Bathrooms AG is delighted to be partner for the 7th consecutive year of the "Salon Suisse" organised by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia - the collateral event for the exhibition “Freespace” at the Pavilion of Switzerland at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition.
As a brand standing for amalgamation of design, quality and functionality, Laufen has been supporting the event at the Palazzo Trevisan every year since the beginning with the intention to participate in and encourage an international dialogue in the fields of architecture and design.
Directed by Marcel Bächtiger, Tim Kammasch and Stanislas Zimmermann, with the support of local Salonnière Laura Tinti, this year’s programme is an invitation to take a journey. From foreign shores, the “Salon Suisse” will look back at architecture and explore its current cultural and social relevance.
