Laufen extends its mastery of raw materials beyond the bathroom and introduces its first non-bathroom specific range for the home. Over 120 years, the Laufen brand has been using the oldest malleable material known to man to make innovative sanitary products in state-of-the-art plants with legendary Swiss precision. Great design is both timeless and ageless, and no bathroom name embraces this idea more fully than Laufen.
Consisting of seven exquisitely designed pieces, the new Home Collection from Swiss bathroom manufacturer Laufen, brings the innovative SaphirKeramik into other rooms of the home for the first time. The range includes objects and accessories, inspired by Laufen’s collaboration with internationally renowned designers and the ongoing dialogue with the world of art and design that the brand has always celebrated. The small sculptures decorate not only the bathroom, but can also add an elegant and original touch to other rooms throughout the house. Let’s take a look at the collection…
Ceramic Polyhedron ‘Ikos’
A beautifully sculpted piece, using geometric straight edges and defined corners. Available in white and matt white, the sleek piece can be used as a purely decorative accessory or could be used as a side table.
Ceramic Sculpture ‘Baboon’
This simplistic, yet elegantly designed piece is perfectly suited to display objects or used as a convenient small table throughout the home.

A material like no other
To achieve the carefully sculpted new home collection, Laufen’s patented SaphirKeramik was a clear choice. This revolutionary, ceramic material achieves its exceptional hardness through blending with corundum, a colourless mineral, which is a component of sapphires. This gives SaphirKeramik a flexural strength equal to that of steel, yet it has the potential to be wafer-thin, giving designers almost infinite freedom to experiment.
Simultaneously hard and malleable, SaphirKeramik enables pieces to be made with very thin, yet very strong walls. The slim profile of SaphirKeramik means that it not only saves space but is also light and environmentally friendly. The new design characteristics of this innovative material are rooted in its exceptional hardness and strength.
