LAUFEN announces expansion of award-winning ILBAGNOALESSI One Products — now available in scaled-down sizes with more design options
NEW YORK — SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 — In response to growing customer demand in North America, LAUFEN, the award-winning Swiss manufacturer of high-end bathroom solutions, has introduced two scaled-down versions of its perennially popular ILBAGNOALESSI One series basins. Affectionately known the world over as the “Tuna” – the designer-inspired vanity is now being offered in additional sizes, each with available left or right-facing installations. The new line offers a wealth of additional design possibilities within the residential and commercial markets.
“We’re honored and proud to be able to offer this expansion of our signature ILBAGNOALESSI One series to our valued North American partners,” says Javier Korneluk, U.S. managing director of LAUFEN. “The global and enduring popularity of the ILBAGNOALESSI One series is testament to Laufen’s long-standing reputation as the world’s most in-demand and technologically advanced sanitary product manufacturer. We’re pleased to be able to offer these new products to our customers, and we are confident that they will find them extraordinarily beautiful, brilliantly engineered and unlike anything else available on the marketplace.”
Conceived by famed Italian designer Stefano Giovannoni, the ILBAGNOALESSI One series, was first launched in 2002. Since then, the iconic line has grown to become a design staple the world over. According to Korneluk, in addition to providing solutions for LAUFEN’s U.S.-based residential end-users, the expanded product line will allow for even more exciting opportunities for design specifications for hospitality and other commercial projects. The new line is available in white, and finished with Laufen Clean Coat (LCC).
“Our expansion of this line is demonstrative of LAUFEN’s ongoing commitment to defining our presence in the U.S. We look forward to continuing to offer our customers new products that offer complete solutions, satisfy consumer demand, and quite literally, ‘break the mold’ when it comes to innovative design.”
Also included in the collection are classic pieces such as the ILBAGNOALESSI One floorstanding washbasin, also known as ‛Tam Tam.’ Additionally, the ILBAGNOALESSI One collection offers complementary bathroom accessories using LAUFEN’s new proprietary ceramic material, SaphirKeramik. Accessories include a toilet paper holder, shelf towel holder and towel hook. SaphirKeramik is a revolutionary material created by LAUFEN after years of intense research and development. It is considerably harder, and has a greater flexural strength than vitreous or fireclay ceramic.
