MILAN DESIGN WEEK 4-9 APRIL 2017, lived up to the reputation of being a world class design destination. It has been THE MOST IMPORTANT DESIGN EVENT on our spring calendar and a chance to experience the uniqueness of the LAUFEN brand through the curated LAUFEN art show in an exquisite city centre location.


LAUFEN's presence during the design week Milan was an important statement. The curated LAUFEN art show in an exquisite location featuring 500 sqm within walking distance from the Kartell by LAUFEN showroom demonstrated the rich heritage, as well as the future of LAUFEN in an exhibition highlighting innovative, memorable and outstanding moments of LAUFEN. The concept was based on a three-dimensional platform of art, a collection of high-tech, abstract and crafty objects. Added to the artistic element, all objects have been produced in new technologies, some of which are a worldpremiere in the ceramic world.
