This year, at Fuorisalone 2022, LAUFEN presents the evolution of ILBAGNOALESSI. Together with Italian designer Stefano Giovannoni, the Swiss company has carefully reshaped one of its most successful collections. Thanks to the use of LAUFEN’s patented material Saphirkeramik, the collection’s shapes are lighter and thinner while providing exceptional hardness. Following LAUFEN’s ambition to offer complete and harmonious bathroom solutions, ILBAGNOALESSI was extended with carefully crafted furnishing elements, state of the art bathroom technology and comes in new finishes and colors.
On the occasion of Fuorisalone 2022, LAUFEN commissioned Snøhetta with the creation of artwork at our LAUFEN space Milano. Since its inception, the Norwegian architecture studio stands for a transdisciplinary approach that fuses architecture with art and other design disciplines such as landscape design or digital design.
For the new ILBAGNOALESSI, Snøhetta developed five imaginative compositions that depict the collection’s iconic objects in fantastical settings among imaginative architecture and majestic landscapes. The recurring theme of the swan references the graceful design language of the collection, but also challenges the viewer’s perception of beauty, design and art.
