Designing the bathroom as a living space: Design, quality and function interact to unfold the personality of the traditional Swiss brand, a leading international manufacturer.
The original cornerstone of the LAUFEN company is its ceramic manufacturing expertise. For more than 110 years the oldest artificial material known to mankind has been processed in Laufen, in the Swiss canton of Basel Land. There, washbasins, bidets and toilets are produced in state-of-the-art facilities with Swiss precision. This ceramics expertise has spawned a talent for creating fully integrated bathrooms. Each room, interpreted by LAUFEN as a haven of relaxation within the home – is fashioned to a high design standard.
What makes LAUFEN design so special is the Swiss manufacturer’s original approach, which views Swiss design as a symbiosis of two important schools of design: Italian design from the South and Modernist style a la Bauhaus from the North. Forged in outstanding Swiss quality.
LAUFEN views quality as a two-sided coin: one side being production expertise, the other the function and outstanding benefits the finished bathroom communicates to the customer. The first side is an obligation, the other part of the free discipline practised in the international bathroom market.
