Ino skilfully utilises groundbreaking SaphirKeramik, pioneered by Laufen in 2013. This revolutionary ceramic material offers the flexural strength of steel, yet has the potential to be wafer thin, giving designers such as Nguyen the freedom to experiment.  Offering an effortlessly streamlined and modern aesthetic, the distinctive Ino washbasin is elegant, inviting and almost weightless, appealing to those looking for a modern and appreciating the very latest in contemporary design.
