Laufen is a traditional Swiss brand composed of a symbiosis of design, quality and functionality. As a premium brand under the umbrella of the ROCA Group, LAUFEN is one of the leading international manufacturers of ceramic sanitary ware with worldwide distribution.

The main competence of the company is its experience in the manufacture of ceramics. For more than 125 years, LAUFEN has processed mankind’s oldest malleable material into innovative sanitary products, in state-of-the-art facilities and with legendary Swiss precision.

In the Laufen catalog, we can find sinks, toilets, bidets, urinals, bathtubs, shower trays, bathroom furniture, taps, accessories, installation systems and special parts for the bathroom.

With the development and introduction of high-pressure casting in 1982, LAUFEN revolutionized sanitary ceramic manufacturing technology and laid the foundation for high production capacities and industrial production of high-quality designer baths. The casting process is characterized by high surface quality and minimal post-processing effort.

In 2002, the company launched “ILBAGNOALESSI One” and since then it has been a classic in bathroom design and has won numerous awards. In 2004, “Laufen Pro” was launched, a series that is particularly successful in the construction segment. A year later, in cooperation with ps + a, the modular and expandable “Palomba Collection” was launched and the Bauhaus-inspired “Form by Laufen” series joined the LAUFEN portfolio.

With the launch of the architecturally oriented “ILABGNOALESSI dot” by architect Wiel Arets in 2007, LAUFEN set the course for the future as a provider of high-quality design options for the bathroom. With the relaunch of the classic “Palace” washbasin as a complete bathroom collection and the new “Living Square” series of sinks, both series including sinks that can be cut to size, LAUFEN expanded its range in 2011 to the mid-price range private bathroom segment, as well as to the hotel sector and custom architectural scene. LAUFEN now offers bathroom furniture for all its sets, thus underlining its claim as a true complete bathroom supplier.
