LAUFEN bathrooms, established in 1892, enjoy international acclaim as a premier brand which is synonymous with Swiss product quality, award-winning designs and a comprehensive range of products.

The cornerstone of the LAUFEN company is its ceramic manufacturing expertise. The collections showcase beautiful forms that offer versatility, functionality and style. For more than 120 years ceramics have been processed in Laufen, where washbasins, bidets and toilets are produced in state of the art facilities with renowned Swiss precision.

The new ceramic

Laufen has recently introduced a new ceramic material, which has revolutionised the quality and design of its products. ‘SaphirKeramik’ is a much lighter, more versatile material, which can be easily sculpted into delicate shapes, without compromising on strength and durability. Remarkable edge radii of just 1-2mm are now technically possible.

Laufen’s Living Square collection shows off the new technology to beautiful effect, with its sleek corners and elegant, narrow silhouettes.

Leaders in bathroom design

Each bathroom, interpreted by LAUFEN as a haven of relaxation within the home, is fashioned to a high standard of design, which the company sees as a symbiosis of two important schools of design: Italian design from the South and the modernist style of Bauhaus from the North.

Laufen recently teamed up with iconic design house, Kartell, to launch a co-designed bathroom project, Kartell by Laufen, with two of the best bathroom designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba. We marvel at its delicate edges and minimalist finish, sculpted out of SaphirKeramik – simply stunning.

Washbasins in the Kartell by Laufen range have no visible drainage openings. Water simply disappears into a narrow hidden drain through an elegant pipe. Its overflow system is also concealed, with a special valve allowing you to leave it open or closed. It is design touches like these that make Laufen stand out as one of the finest bathroom manufacturers.

Laufen’s work with iconic design brand, Alessi, has been wowing the design world for years. ILBAGNOALESSI One, created by renowned designer Stefano Giovannoni, will add a touch of eccentricity and flair to any bathroom. Cast in one piece, its award-winning, floor-standing basin, known as Tam-Tam (for its drum-shape) is regarded as a modern classic and one of the most impressive ceramic pieces for bathrooms. The rest of the collection with its iconic, organic curves is equally beautiful.
