Kartell by Laufen / The Bathroom Project

Currently making its debut at the bathroom design trade show ISH in Frankfurt Germany, is a new collaboration between Swiss bathroom specialists Laufen and Italian furniture brand Kartell.


Known for its distinctive, high quality plastic furniture designs, Kartell's bathroom collection is designed by long-term Laufen collaborators Ludovica+Roberto Palomba

The Milanese designers have translated Kartell's love of soft rounded lines, layers of transparency and glossy finishes into a playful but sophisticated line of bathroom furniture.


Using an elegant palette of vibrant orange, midnight blue, bright white and accents of shimmering gold and silver, the collection includes wall mounted and freestanding washbasins, cabinets, seating, a wall mirror, shelving, a shower tray, a bathtub, lights and accessories.


The collection will be on display at the ISH 2013 in Frankfurt until March 16 and then unveiled to the general public at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan next month.
