We will once again take a walk through the most beautiful shows of the Fuorisalone.
"With SaphirKeramik – a unique material perfected after five years of intensive research and development – LAUFEN is introducing a groundbreaking alternative to more traditional ceramics and hugely expanding the possibilities of ceramic design and production.
A revolution in the formal language of ceramics: Strong and malleable, SaphirKeramik permits the creation of wafer-thin yet robust walls and tight-edge radii of just 1 to 2mm while state-of-the-art technology values are currently a minimum of 7–8 mm. Its slender profile renders it space-saving, lightweight and environmentally friendly.
SaphirKeramik derives its exceptional hardness and strength from its component corundum, (AI2O3), a colourless mineral found in eponymous sapphires. Rigorous testing has revealed that its flexural strength is equal to that of steel."
