Laufen unveiled a preview of its sleek new composite material in Sydney, in August 2013. The material is SaphirKeramik (or Sapphire Ceramics), the product was the Living Square basin by Stuttgart designer Andreas Dimitriadis/platinumdesign. Largely constituted from natural elements of kaolin, clay, feldspar and quartz sand, SaphirKeramik achieves finer lines and thinner edge radii (around 1-2 millimetres) allowing a more delicate design language as seen in the Living Square basin. Available in Australia in late 2013, the SaphirKeramik range received the Designplus Award by Mess Frankfurt with the German Design Council at the ISH 2013 Bathroom fair, and the 14th Innovation Award for Architecture and Technology. Laufen is available in Australia through Reece.
