    Following the success of its inaugural outing to the Sleep Event last year, Laufen is delighted to be making a return visit to this leading show for the hotel sector at London’s Business Design Centre from 21 to 22 November 2012. The Swiss manufacturer will have double the space at this year’s event, which in itself is a reflection of its continued commitment to the hotel sector.

    Visitor’s to this year’s Sleep Event will find the Laufen stand split in two – with one side showcasing its inspirational Boutique hotel bathrooms, whilst on the other side the latest sanitaryware to enhance public wash spaces will be unveiled.

    This will be the first time that the new Palomba Collection 2012 has been seen in the UK and as such it will take centre stage on stand G21. This new collection has been designed with the hotel bathroom firmly in mind, with a feature being a freestanding bathtub, with a high back that is ergonomically sloped and natural lines that mould to the contours of the body to create the last word of bathing comfort.

    Offering a truly flexible option, the Collection now also includes new furniture modules. Available in a range of colours and open at the front, the furniture can be stacked, lined up in a row or combined with the range’s medium and tall cabinets.

    Also on stand at Sleep 2012 will be Laufen’s award-winning Antero water-saving urinal and the Cinto urinal divider. Designed by Toan Nguyen, the bowl of the Antero urinal, set on a large format base plate, rises organically towards the user. The practical requirements of the hotel environment are met as the Antero features a needs-based electronic control system, which flushes thoroughly yet economically and is available in a mains, battery or flush-mounted version. An integral overflow protection ensures that flushing stops if the outlet is blocked, preventing flooding.

    Representatives of the Global Projects Team will be present at Sleep 2012 in London and look forward to welcoming visitors to the stand.

    See Laufen on Stand G21 and G23 at Sleep 2012 at the Business Design Centre, London, from Wednesday 21 to Thursday 22 November.
