Award Entry

Revised concept for LAUFEN's Palace washbasins achieves timeless design with maximum function 

LAUFEN's Palace is a truly classic washbasin, in high demand for hotels and architecturally planned bathrooms, thanks to its clear design lines and bespoke sizes. While the designer Andreas Dimitriadis (platinumdesign) translated the core concept into a contemporary design language, LAUFEN completed the collection by adding products such as furniture, WCs or shelves and convinced architects and builders by inventing new manufacturing techniques that underline the visual and practical aspect of the product.

The highlight of the Palace collection is the lavish washbasins. They come in four widths - the two largest versions also as double washbasins. All feature a large bowl, organically formed out of the angular ceramic block that merges fluidly with the ample shelf area. The washbasins can be combined with ceramic shelves that have been developed especially for hotels. The shelves are in the same dimensions as the large washbasins, can be easily mounted, look light and elegant and provide lots of easy-to-clean storage space.

Both shelves and washbasins can be customized in size at the factory.  Even diagonal cuts are possible - ideal for bespoke hotel and private bathrooms - and where the architect wishes to retain the authentic ceramic look. Before the ceramics are fired at the factory, the cut edges can be concealed by a ceramic covering so that no joins are visible - a technical innovation that underscores the consummate skill of the Swiss bathrooms specialist.
