Sonar Bathroom by Patricia Urquiola for Laufen

Patricia Urquiola designed the Sonar bathroom collection for Laufen

curated design excellence

The Sonar bathroom collection, by Patricia Urquiola explores the material properties of SaphirKeramik, a decorative, versatile and malleable ceramic developed by Laufen.

This  exquisite ceramic material has been crafted to embody a stunning three-dimensional 'sound waves' texture and was awarded the iF Design Award 2018 in the product category for it's efforts.

Patricia Urquiola: “As a metaphor, the name Sonar is linked to water: in this form of echolocation, acoustic pulses are emitted to identify items under water. I liked the idea of using the little waves generated by sound. The texture on the outside of the washbasin bowls was modelled on these waves. I not only wanted to work with the lightness of the ceramics, I also wanted to find a way to design its surface.”

The Sonar collection: includes floor-standing and wall-mounted washbasins, two washbasin bowls and a double washbasin bowl, also available in white matt and all made of SaphirKeramik together with a new furniture collection.
