TRANSFORMING THE BATHROOM TO A LIVING ENVIRONMENT
The personality of this highly traditional Swiss brand reflects a symbiosis of design, quality and functionality. LAUFEN is one of the world's leading manufacturers with a global distribution network.
The company's core competence is its knowledge in the area of sanitary ware manufacturing. Over 125 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. Knowledge of the bathroom as a whole developed from the competence of LAUFEN in ceramics manufacturing, and sophisticated design. What makes LAUFEN products unique at the first glance is that their Swiss design unites two major design trends: emotional Italian design from the south and the northern tradition of design precision and clarity.
For LAUFEN, quality has two aspects: manufacturing knowledge and high degree of practical benefit that the finished bathroom affords the customer – which is often not immediately apparent. LAUFEN, a Swiss company manufacturing products that allow water, a precious resource, to be used sparingly, demonstrates in this manner a commitment to preserving natural resources and environmentally- friendly production.
