Salone del Mobile 2024

MATTER by Snøhetta

From 16 to 21 April, LAUFEN will be exhibiting at the Salone del Mobile, Milan with a new brand presentation by Snøhetta.

Entitled “Matter”, the Norwegian architecture firm explores the tactile allure of the natural raw materials of ceramics, alongside the metallic elements of the fittings, and dramatically contrasts it with the innovative sophistication of LAUFEN’s high-tech manufacturing and design ethos.

The dynamic interplay is vividly brought to life for visitors: the raw materials of ceramics and fittings are represented by wall panels crafted from clay, plaster and brass, evoking a sense of nature and warmth. Amidst this backdrop, LAUFEN’s latest bathroom collections – MEDA, Kartell•LAUFEN, and ILBAGNOALESSI, alongside the innovative SMART bathroom – command attention, displayed on towering, industrial-style shelving.

In a commitment to sustainability, LAUFEN’s exhibit is designed with a circular approach, ensuring as many materials as possible are reused within Milan or designated for subsequent applications. This dedication to material lifecycle is a shared ethos between LAUFEN and Snøhetta, which has placed sustainability in architecture and a sensitive approach to landscape and resources at the centre of its work since its foundation.
