Designer of dreams

With its three-dimensional renderings, design studio Six N. Five creates surreal architectures and aesthetic objects that generate the effect of a gentle utopia.
Subtle and premium designs offer soothing everyday relaxation for all the senses. This was the vision of Swiss designer Peter Wirz (Vetica, Lucerne) and his team for their new bathroom faucet line, Sense for Laufen. The creatives concentrated on a high-precision, geometrical and confident silhouette, producing a faucet possessing an unobtrusive, premium beauty.
They focused in particular on the spout, which they elegantly angled towards the user. A pronounced bow handle was created to match it. Whether on a washbasin, in the bathtub or in the shower, it ensures a convenient and tactile experience. Overall, the tasteful use of proportional surfaces lends the faucet collection a harmonious balance, a balance that blends elegantly into contemporary bathroom architecture.
“Laufen Sense is a proud, confident but not arrogant line of faucets, that meets high standards for form and function,” explains Peter Wirz.
The comprehensive Laufen Sense range offers architects and planners a variety of options when designing private and premium restaurant and hotel bathrooms. On market launch, washbasin mixers with different spout heights and lengths and a bidet mixer are available. All models share the Eco+ function, in which the operating lever is in the cold water range at the most-used central operating position. That reduces hot water consumption and therefore saves energy. A thermostatic in-wall shower and bath mixer, an elegant bath inlet and a handheld shower with a rain spray mode are also available.
A shower and bath mixer for on-wall installation will follow later in 2019. The latter has an elegantly angled cascade spout. These models owe their stylish look in part to the fittings countersunk into the faucet body. They allow the faucets to be flush mounted on the wall, which makes wall fittings unnecessary. The diverter from the bath spout to the handheld shower is just as discreet. It is integrated flush on the left of the faucet body, which looks very stylish, and makes cleaning or drying the faucet significantly easier.
