Digital meets physical

A digital artificial world that leads to dreamlike and futuristic bathroom experiences.

LAUFEN space Milano is like a fluid space, where flexible elements, characterized by transparent and semi-rigid wings delimit the environments to give life to new installations in collaboration with artists and designers.
As in a theater – La Scala is not far away – the space Milano is conceived as a stage on which the various voices of LAUFEN come to life in an incredible and surprising brand experience.

We’re moving away from prestige.
We’re moving towards dialogue.

Presentation, Experimentation, Dialogue.

The showroom concept moves away from the classic presentation of bathroom environments to a place where debates and suggestions can be triggered, where new forms of visual art can be realized in a continuous change of the space itself.
