Laufen knows how to make a grand entrance. The launch of their first U.S. showroom in Miami was a highlight of Art Basel with Tom
Strala’s exhibition of 3D lighting and geometric form to highlight the concept of bathroom culture as an artform. The hardness of
SaphirKeramik allows shapes not previously possible as well as the ability to create wafer-thin yet robust walls and tight-edge radii of
just 1 to 2 mm. The result is what the company describes as a “delicate design language, more defined in shape and line.” Explore the full
head-turning selection of Laufen washbasins, bathtubs and other bathroom architecture at 7610 NE 4th Ct., Miami; US.Laufen.com.
