Laufen is being honoured with Design Prize Switzerland 2017/18 for developing the innovative material SaphirKeramik.

The international jury of Design Prize chose Laufen as one of the winners from 45 nominees.

“New materials have always been important drivers of design development. In SaphirKeramik, the traditional Laufen brand has created an innovation that is just as surprising as it is remarkable, whose impact on sanitary ceramics can only be estimated today.”

SaphirKeramik by Laufen has all the hygienic advantages of traditional bathroom ceramics, but is thinner, more defined, and extremely robust. Its strength is comparable with carbon steel and twice as strong as vitreous china.

The composite material does not require any additives and it can be processed using traditional production processes.
