Sustainable and stylish – LAUFEN’S new Lua and Lani collections
Conceived by French designer Toan Nguyen, the new Lua collection from LAUFEN offers bathrooms a clean, contemporary look at an affordable price. Comprising rimless WCs and bidets, single and double basins, free-standing, drop-in and back-to-wall bathtubs, Lua sanitaryware harness a geometric form with curvaceous brassware to match. Complementing this is the new Lani collection of handleless wall-hung vanity units, wall cabinets and tall cupboards with a timeless aesthetic to suit any bathroom.
So much more than their good looks, Lua and Lani are also environmentally friendly choices. Both benefit from LAUFEN’S holistic approach to sustainability, which is present across its operations. For example, production facilities use power from renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic and hydropower systems, and all LAUFEN bathroom furniture and components are manufactured in Europe. This ensures production that meets the European regulations on environmental and workforce protection and reduces the distances that products travel.
When it comes to manufacturing, LAUFEN only uses wood that originates from Europe and is certified by the FSC and PEFC. These guarantee sustainable and responsible forestry without overexploitation or uncontrolled deforestation. In addition, LAUFEN uses a high percentage of recycled wood to manufacture its wood composite materials, substantially reducing logging.
Alongside this, LAUFEN has eliminated Styrofoam inserts from packaging and, wherever possible, only uses 100 per cent recycled cardboard. Pre-assembled furniture is packed entirely without polystyrene and frequently used components are delivered in reusable containers. LAUFEN also avoids overproduction and wastage by manufacturing to order, reducing the need for storage space, which leads to lower energy consumption.
And, when it’s time for a change in the bathroom, many LAUFEN components can be reused. For instance, wood veneers are 100 per cent recyclable and furniture foils can also be reutilised to manufacture plastic pipes for sanitary and electrical applications. This makes LAUFEN the brand for a sustainably stylish bathroom and beyond.
