[satellite gallery=1 auto=off thumbs=on]


The Kartell by Laufen Collection was presented this past December during Design Miami at the Kartell Miami flagship store. After its launch in Frankfurt (ISH) and the Milan Design Week last year, this innovative project has been presented around the world .

Helmed by the super-power architect and design team, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba (who was in attendance) this award winning collection created a new dialogue as pointed out in the collection description:

The new Kartell by Laufen bathroom is a complete and integrated project inspired by the iconic design of Kartell, combined with the quality of Laufen in the production of ceramics for the bathroom, designed by the International renowned designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba. On one hand Kartell, Italian, creative, colourful, ironic. On the other Laufen, Swiss, rigorous, reliable. From this union and with the interpretative project work of Ludovica+Roberto Palomba there comes about an unprecedented collection, which takes its place on the market as an aspirational project with great persuasive capacity. A liveable dream, with sophisticated yet affordable aesthetics, chic yet understated.

This was indeed one of the best events of Design Miami 2013 and you can see more about the development of this innovative collection in the following Kartell by Laufen – PURE EMOTION – Backstage video:
