The design of the LAUFEN PALOMBA COLLECTION recalls small inlets or pebbles shaped by the eternal movement of the sea, expertly transformed into ceramic. All elements of the collection harmonise with one another as each one of them bears the signature of the Italian designer couple, Ludovica+Roberto Palomba.
Yet the character of its design is not rigidly fixed, but hovers between geometrical and organic forms. Its underlying concept is the manmade cube, hollowed and rounded by the elemental force of water – the sea as inspirational force. However the washbasins, bathtubs, shower trays, WCs, bidets and furniture of the PALOMBA COLLECTION do not achieve the absolute status of a fully integrated bathroom. True to the spirit of the collection, these designer objects lend themselves to exciting combinations: both within the collection and with LAUFEN products of a matching design.
When the company LAUFEN was founded in Switzerland in 1892, sanitary conditions were well below today's standards and level of convenience – standards to which LAUFEN, the only sanitary porcelain manufacturer producing exclusively in Europe, contributed. The personality of this highly traditional Swiss brand reflects a symbiosis of design, quality and functionality.
