HOW DARE YOU
DESIGN WEEK INSTALLATION - LAUFEN SPACE MILAN
“How dare you” is the title of this year’s art and design installation at LAUFEN space Milan for the Design Week. A provocative question that refers to the courage to go beyond one's limits and create courageous, eclectic and surprising projects.
ARTIST EDITION_MONIQUE BAUMANN
Most typical for her work, Monique Baumann uses a wide range of materials like photo prints, paper cut-outs, posters or adhesive tapes. Applying the Swiss artist's bold aesthetic to bathroom objects creates a colourful and most unusual LAUFEN artist edition.
LAUFENXNM3 – STEEL HEROES
The Milan-based design studio is admired primarily for its pragmatic and cool style. In combination with the LAUFEN ceramic elements, NM3’s purist and mirroring steel objects provide a sculptural and almost abstract presence to both materials.
Our LAUFEN Spaces around the globe serve as experiental showrooms. Here, we enable every guest to experiment with products, learn about materials and enter into an exchange with some of the most inspiring minds of our times. Bringing people together is how we evolve and celebrate bathroom culture.
Set in a beautiful, historical building, our Milano space mirrors the city’s unmistakable, creative verve – a stage, always in motion, just like La Scala which is a stone’s throw away.
Explore an immersive, virtual experiment with our Kartell • LAUFEN design line by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba in four surreal rooms. Created by experiential designer Annabelle Schneider with Swiss architects Gabrielle Hächler and Andreas Fuhrimann.
