LAUFEN introduced the latest addition to the award-winning ILBANOALESSI One vanity collection during Salone Del Mobile in Milan this April. Affectionately known as ‘Baby Tuna’, the new collection features the vanity in two smaller sizes. Designer Stefano Giovannoni created the new Baby Tunas, available in a warm gray or white LCC (Laufen Clean Coat) finish that are perfectly scaled down to add another option to the overall bathroom design. The Baby Tuna is available in two sizes: 1200 x 500 mm and 900 x 500 mm.“We introduced this new line of vanities along with a bathtub and new bathroom furniture items to enrich the ‘One’ bathroom project,” said Javier Korneluk, US managing director of LAUFEN. “The Baby Tuna is an extension of a modern and impressive ceramic collection. With the same asymmetric yet well-balanced line as the larger Tuna, the Baby Tuna washbasin is available with or without a tap hole, allowing a faucet to be positioned on an adjacent wall. It also allows for left or right-facing installation. With the addition of these new Baby Tunas to the ILBAGNOALESSI One Collection, they allow even more options for design specifications for residential and commercial projects.”
Also included in the One Collection for the first time are new bathroom accessories made using LAUFEN’s SaphirKeramik ceramic. These include a toilet paper holder, shelf towel holder and towel hook. The new revolutionary SaphirKeramik is considerably harder and has a greater flexural strength than vitreous or fireclay ceramic. The material is sculpted to create accessories for the bathroom that are a stunning addition to the already vast collection.
First introduced in 2002, ILBAGNOALESSI One remains one of the most complete and long-lasting collections for the bathroom. The collection contains some pieces which are now ‘classic’, including the “egg-shaped” toilets and the large free-standing ‘Tam Tam’ floor-standing vessels. By mixing and matching a variety of pieces from the One collection, all the elements coexist to craft one stupendous design.
