LAUFEN SaphirKeramik

Gold Award
LAUFEN’s revolutionary SaphirKeramik turns old material into completely new shapes: closely defined radii and edges are possible with thin walls which have until now not been seen in sanitary ceramic design. Developed over two years, SaphirKeramik is considerably harder and has a greater flexural strength than vitreous or fireclay ceramic. With SaphirKeramik, the hardness of the material permits shapes which were previously not possible. A more delicate design language, more defined in shape and line, becomes possible – exactly matching the ideas behind contemporary architectural design.


The greater hardness of SaphirKeramik permits thinner walls and simplified structure of the ceramic parts, which in turn results in less material, lower weights and benefits in terms of sustainability: fewer raw materials are required and lower energy consumption in firing, production and transport.
