A powerfully symbolic building, the LAUFEN Forum stands in the Laufen valley in the canton of Baselland.
The Forum, located at LAUFEN's worldwide headquarters, makes an architectural statement that reflects the LAUFEN brand. Inspired by the Ludovica and Roberto Palomba-designed "bowl/08," a washbasin for the LAUFEN Collection, Swiss architects Nissen & Wentzlaff created a larger version of this object in the form of the building, which stands out with its impressive exposed concrete.
Within this building, LAUFEN's products and innovations are the center of attention. The LAUFEN Forum shows more than sanitary ware; it gives a frame to the bathroom as a total package. Therefore, it is a space for the bathroom with the power to inspire clients, architects, retailers and tradesmen alike, and provide a source of information about the LAUFEN brand.
Moreover, the Forum is the home of the training center of LAUFEN Bathrooms AG. A wide range of seminars are held here to train groups and communicate product knowledge. Training sessions also take place in the Sky Gallery in Wilhelmsburg, Austria and in Znojmo in the Czech Republic.
LAUFEN won the "Award for Marketing + Architecture" in the category "Office and Commercial Buildings – Industrial and Commercial Interiors" in 2010. It also won the "Green Good Design Award" and in 2011, the "Best Architects Award 2011" in the category "Business and Industrial Buildings."
