Laufen, Design Intelligence
Design moves in a field of tension between art, architecture and emotion. In the case of the bathroom space, the products are serious – almost part of the architecture, and strongly connected to the building itself. Successful design is defined by sustainability, functionality and importantly lasting aesthetics, as they are not easy to change with fashion changes. To understand the process of bathroom design involves not only the properties of the materials used but also the production processes and know-how of the manufacturer. Please join Marc Viardot, Director of Marketing and Products for Laufen, and internationally acclaimed architect and designer, Roberto Palomba as they explore the intelligent integration of people, materials, and production processes so that high-quality, emotional and functional bathroom spaces arise. With this deep understanding of the industrial design process between architects and manufacturers, design professionals gain valuable insights into bathroom culture and how to leverage design intelligence to create their own unique room environments. We ask designers to avoid automatism, predictability and to challenge the material world in their own way to bring forth unexpected beauty and authenticity.
Presenters: Marc Viardot, Director of Marketing & Products, Laufen and acclaimed architect and designer, Roberto Palomba
