Exhibition

A Curated Art Show. What?
A landscape of differently executed sculptures, formally autonomous, form a strong statement to the fascinating material ceramic.
From abstract to figurative, from handmade to digital fabrication, the objects document the essence of Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen.

Curated by Beda Achermann and shown at the Design Museum, the concept of this art show is based on a three-dimensional platform of art, a collection of high-tech, abstract and craft objects. Added to the artistic element, part of the objects are produced in new technologies, some of which are a world premiere in the ceramic world.

The landscape of differently executed topics, designed by Benjamin Dillenburger and Michael Hansmeyer, Flag, Stefano Giovannoni, Konstantin Grcic, Alfredo Häberli, Toan Nguyen, Nissen Wentzlaff, Atelier oï, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, Patricia Urquiola, Peter Wirz and Studio Achermann, collectively document the essence of the Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen; its reference points, beliefs, aspirations, values and milestones, translated from abstract to figurative, from handmade to digital fabrication in Vitreous China, Saphirkeramik, Coated Sand, LCC, Varia Resin and Plaster.

Laufen continuously invests in the development of innovative materials, working on their properties and finding new applications, learning and exploring by closely observing or fostering research and development activities around ceramics, including its relevance in other industries. After all, ceramic is seen as one of the most promising materials to cope with the challenges of the 21st century, due to its mechanical and sustainable properties.
