living city: A system with corners and edges, yet so flexible and easy to maintain. living city has a clear concept and clear forms. Thanks to the modular system, washbasins with and without storage are available in many widths. Reduction, not stone cold sobriety, individualism without idiosyncrasy: The language of the living city forms is aimed at people who live in modern surroundings and create a living environment with refined awareness and sensitivity to materials. The design of LAUFEN rectangular wall-hung WCs and bidets suits this context perfectly.
"living square pushes the art of ceramic manufacturing to its limits. The extremely flat washbasin, with its flat surfaces and defined edges, appears to float in front of the wall. This is how elegant sanitary ware can be. living square inspires with its slender outline: The double washbasin, with a useful width of 180 cm in combination with the ceramic shelf, creates a fully functional washing facility. The case range of furniture is equally well matched."
TOM SCHÖNHERR AND ANDREAS HAUG ON LIVING BY LAUFEN
“Living is designed to fulfil very personal wishes and needs. Features common to the series are function and quality, down to the last detail and a wide variety of ceramic pieces and furniture. Living City is designed according to rigorous architectonic criteria. Cubical and geometrical. The lower-lying moulded storage surface lends the basin an unusual flair and is at the same time, highly practical – its surface unmarred by joints and more or less indestructible. Living Style’s vibrancy stems from a lavish horizontal gesture and the exceptionally shallow basin, their undulations creating a highly original and subtle beauty. The double washbasin responds to modern living à deux and is the most expressive element of the series.“
