KARTELL BY LAUFEN
A complete bathroom project inspired by the iconic design of Kartell together with the quality of Laufen. On one hand, Kartell, Italian, creative, colourful and iconic. The family company that has marked the history of design and revolutionised furnishing in the use of plastic materials for over 60 years now. On the other, Laufen, Swiss, rigorous and reliable. For 125 years, a great commitment to make culture in the bathroom and innovation in the production of ceramic sanitaryware. It is a shared project of great innovation, which has required more than three years to develop, the result of the constant research that is part of the DNA of the two companies. Serving as the link between these two players are the award winning designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba , who themselves are leaders in designing for the bathroom.
The rigid geometry of the ceramic items is tempered by the multicoloured lightness of the transparent plastic elements. Leaving aside primary colours Kartell by Laufen sets coloured light horizons into the free area of the house where the senses yield to the emotions. Introduced in the new Kartell by Laufen bathroom is the revolutionary SaphirKeramik, a material that allows performance characteristics that were unthinkable until today. A radius of curvature of the corners up to 1-2 millimetres (until now the maximum reached was 7-8 millimetres) for washbasins thin as blades, of an extreme lightness, not only visual but actual - SaphirKeramik is a material weighing half that of normal ceramics - equal only to its inimitable mechanical resistance. An avant-garde material that cannot be scratched and withstands impact from chemical agents of detergents and limescale.
