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.
