Expert hands shaping ceramic are Laufen’s reference points: since 125 years the company pursues its engagement linking past generations’ skills and innovation.
On the occasion of Design Miami/ Basel, Laufen presents the traveling exhibition “A Curated Art Show. What?”. Curated by Beda Achermann, the show features seventeen high- tech, abstract and crafty objects. Artistic elements are combined with new technologies to create sculptures formally autonomous, but also forming a strong statement to the fascinating material ceramic.
