Meet The Stunning Luxury Bathroom Furniture From LAUFEN Bathrooms – The personality of this highly traditional Swiss brand reflects a symbiosis of design, quality and functionality. LAUFEN, the premium brand under the ROCA umbrella, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers with a global distribution network. And today, Luxury Bathrooms invites you to meet all about this brand and the new collection featuring in 2017.
The company’s core competence is its knowledge in the area of sanitary ware manufacturing. Over 120 years, the LAUFEN brand has been using the oldest malleable material known to man to make innovative sanitary products in state-of-the-art plants with legendary Swiss precision. Knowledge of the bathroom as a whole developed from the competence of LAUFEN in ceramics manufacturing, and sophisticated design. What makes LAUFEN products unique at the first glance is that their Swiss design unites two major design trends: emotional Italian design from the south and the northern tradition of design precision and clarity.
For LAUFEN, quality has two aspects: manufacturing knowledge and high-degree of practical benefit that the finished bathroom affords the customer - which is often not immediately apparent. LAUFEN, a Swiss company manufacturing products that allow water, a precious resource, to be used sparingly, demonstrates in this manner a commitment to preserving natural resources and environmentally- friendly production.
SINCE 1892 LAUFEN PERFORM NON-STOP CRAFTMANSHIP
The visionary work with ceramics requires knowledge of substance, an experimental approach to it and the ability to translate the ideas into industrial processes. LAUFEN processes the delicate material with highest attention and passion, paying a little more attention to detail to achieve best Swiss quality. More intelligent, larger, more effective, more forward-looking: LAUFEN always set their sights somewhat higher. This includes resource-saving handling and intelligent recycling even during the production process, as well as products that reduce the amount of water used for flushing.
Every single toilet, every bidet is subjected to a vacuum test and checked for water tightness. A thorough visual check after each stage of production guarantees that only perfect pieces are further processed in the production process. The employees confirm the perfect condition of each work piece after every state of production with their personal mark. The final check at LAUFEN guarantees, for what the company stands for: reliability, precision and function in all possible colours and shapes.
LAUFEN products that allow water, a precious resource, to be used sparingly and therefore demonstrates its commitment to preserving natural resources. It therefore places priority on environmentally-friendly production, using the resources (energy, raw material and water) in the most effective way throughout the whole manufacturing process. This optimization of resources needed for manufacturing already starts during the development of new product concepts and their technical development.
In Austria, LAUFEN was awarded the “EMAS Environment Prize 2007” for its exemplary environmental management. The Swiss factory in LAUFEN has carried the label of the Swiss Energy Agency for Industry (EnAW) since 2006, which recognizes it as a company which is actively committed to voluntary climate protection. LAUFEN also actively looks for environmentally friendly solutions for many of its bathroom products. LAUFEN, however, also places a great deal of emphasis on making products of outstanding quality – as numerous internationally-recognized product certificates and standards testify.
The Swiss Q-Plus symbol certifies compliance of our products with the European standard and the established more exacting Swiss standard. This is an important aspect for LAUFEN, as only durable, low-wear products deserve to be called environmentally-friendly – after all, avoidance comes before recycling. LAUFEN thus helps customers to live in harmony with the environment and reduce energy costs. Our products therefore also feature the latest energy and water-saving technologies, such as the newest generation of water-saving WCs: several LAUFEN toilets flush using an optional 4.5 or 3 litres dual flush system as opposed to 6 or 3 litres conventional WCs.
