Combining Kartell’s flair for originality and plastic objects with the quality, rigour and ceramics mastered by Laufen Bathrooms, Kartell by Laufen capitalises on the best of two industry leaders. The range was first designed by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, who invested a philosophy of maximum flexibility and versatility in order to meet the requirements of many different tastes and bathroom narratives.

Previewing at ISH, from March 14 to 18 in Frankfurt, are Kartell by Laufen’s new SaphirKeramik collections, designed by Konstantin Grcic, Toan Nguyen, Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, and Peter Wirz. SaphirKeramik is an innovative ceramic material developed by Laufen that has revolutionised bath design with its otherworldly combination of lightness, strength and slimness. Expect to see expanded proposals and moods, a completely new series of slim washbasins, and a range extension of the countertop washbasins, all with new colours.

In just a few weeks during Milan Design Week from April 4 to 9, Patricia Urquiola’s new SaphirKeramik design, which promises to take the revolutionary material to new dimensions, will be unveiled for the first time. Laufen will also be showcasing its rich heritage and future prospects in the Milestones. Curated Art Show. What? exhibition at La Posteria in the Brera Design District. A movie paying tribute to all the skilled staff working at Laufen will also premier.
