Re-imagining the washbasin: bathroom collection Sonar sets a new benchmark
Thanks to Laufen’s SaphirKeramik material, the new bathroom collection Sonar encompasses novel washstands that open up fresh design opportunities. The award-winning collection is further being enhanced to offer even greater variety through the addition of more washbasins, WCs, a bidet, a new bathtub and a suite of bathroom furniture.
Patricia Urquiola, the designer commissioned by Laufen to create Sonar, has developed distinctive shapes and a three-dimensional texture for the external surface of the washbasins. Her inspiration for the texture, which highlights the delicate aesthetics of the SaphirKeramik material, was provided by the way in which sound propagates in water. Never before have comparable ceramic shapes and surfaces appeared in a bathroom environment, making the collection truly unique.
