“Dim Sum” in A Bathroom
An Original interpretation of bath environment from Kartell by Laufen
Every spring design week catalyzes the international attention on Milan, and as Chinese customers become one of the biggest spenders during global design events, designers explore “East meets West” twist, exhibiting their creations. Case in point: Kartell by Laufen bathroom project, inspired by iconic Italian design of Kartell and rigorous commitment to quality of Swiss Laufen, this year was exhibited at Milano Design Week under the name of ‘dim sum’, bringing in another cultural dimension.
Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, the two creative masterminds of Kartell by Laufen, continued experimentation of the unique bathroom project, which began in 2013 and resulted in a new revolutionary material SaphirKeramic. This high-performance ceramic makes it possible to produce items that are thin as blades, lightweight and aesthetically elevated. The flagship store space was enhanced, generating a unique atmosphere, where cultural inspiration sources don’t clash, but complement each other. The design duo presented simple, traditional forms along with new and amusing silhouettes, embodying the conceptual approach towards bathroom environment beyond its functional properties.
举个例子：Laufen卫浴项目的Kartell，灵感来自意大利标志性的Kartell设计和对Swiss Laufen质量的严格承诺。今年在米兰设计周以“dim sum”的名义展出，带来了另一种文化维度。
了一种新的革命性材料SaphirKeramic。 这种高性能陶瓷可以生产出薄如刀片的产品，重量轻且美观。 旗舰店的空间得到加强，营造出一种独特的氛围，并且文化灵感来源不会互相冲突，而是相互补充。 设计二人组以简单、传统的形式以及新颖有趣的轮廓，体现了超越其功能特性的浴室环境概念方法性。
