    Laufen showcased the results of its 120 year history of producing beautiful bathroom ceramics when it took part in Cersaie in Bologna, Italy, at the end of September.During the four-day fair the Swiss manufacturer took the opportunity to display its very latest bathroom concepts to a global audience. Taking centre stage were new additions to the company’s highly successful Palomba collection, including iconic pieces the Menhir washbasin and bathtub, plus a series of countertop washbasins, and a new range of modular furniture which offers a fantastic way of adding colour and storage space into any sized bathroom.

    Another highlight of the Laufen stand at Cersaie was the company’s Case furniture range, designed by Andreas Dimitriadis to offer timeless elegance and minimalist lines. Central to the Case collection is a variety of vanity units, in widths ranging from 450mm to 1800 mm. They are available in different versions with one or two drawers and can be combined with practically all Laufen washbasins. The collection also includes a medium and a tall cabinet and a tall cabinet with two or four glass shelves and is available in the trend colour of white, or limed or anthracite oak.

    A perfect complement to the Case furniture is the extensive mirror collection of the same name. The 6mm, high quality mirrors are available in ten different sizes and two kinds of light fitment for true versatility and flexibility in bathroom design.

    Further ranges on display at Cersaie from Laufen included the company’s award-winning Palace, Il Bagno Alessi One, Living City, Laufen pro and Living Square ranges, as well as the new Antero and Cinto urinal and divider and details of the manufacturer’s innovative dirt-repellent surface finish, Laufen Clean Coat (LCC).

    Laufen UK MD, Alan Dodds, comments: “2012 has been a very exciting and successful year for Laufen and the Cersaie fair offered a brilliant way for us to highlight just some of these. Cersaie has long been a significant meeting point for ceramic products and technologies, the latest designs and new concepts. Once again this year, the fair attracted visitors from all over the world, reflecting Laufen’s own global presence and provided us with the ideal opportunity for us to showcase our latest products and innovations.“
