The ceramic elements form an integrated series with matching WCs, bidets, bathtubs and shower trays as well as furniture.

Yet the designs are by no means sober in character and also offer lots of storage surfaces for bathroom accessories. With the living style washbasin avant-garde extravagance finds its way into living by LAUFEN. Their focus on the essential is what characterises these outstanding, ultra-shallow ceramic elements.
TOM SCHÖNHERR AND ANDREAS HAUG ON LIVING BY LAUFEN
“Living is designed to fulfil very personal wishes and needs. Features common to the series are function and quality, down to the last detail and a wide variety of ceramic pieces and furniture. Living City is designed according to rigorous architectonic criteria. Cubical and geometrical. The lower-lying moulded storage surface lends the basin an unusual flair and is at the same time, highly practical – its surface unmarred by joints and more or less indestructible. Living Style’s vibrancy stems from a lavish horizontal gesture and the exceptionally shallow basin, their undulations creating a highly original and subtle beauty. The double washbasin responds to modern living à deux and is the most expressive element of the series.“
