Research and innovation featured in the new museum-like installation signed by L+R Palomba

Kartell by Laufen

Kartell by Laufen is proud to take part in the London Design Festival, which returns for the 16th year in 2018 with the aim of celebrating and promoting the City as the design capital of the world.

 

For this unmissable gathering the brand will showcase, for the first time in London, an artistic museum-like installation at the Kartell flagship store on 223 Brompton Road in Chelsea.

Signed by the designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, it is an engaging, exploratory exercise on washbasins that combines innovation and research: a voyage of suggestions, in which East meets West in an atmosphere of forceful emotional impact.

 

The showroom features an innovative setting which includes two main display areas: a luminous raised platform hosts the concept inspired by the iconic Chinese “dim sum” tableware, objects with very free and playful forms utilized to “set” the large table. The pieces took shape through the use of Saphirkeramik, a revolutionary ceramic that permits the production of extremely thin walls, with very small radii and smooth to touch surfaces.

Starting with the colors of food and the objects that encourage shared relations on the table, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba do present a new concept study on shapes: iconic forms that range from rounded profiles to more rigorous, squared shapes, even futuristic at times, set apart by unexpected shades of red, green and brown, suggesting unique shadows and contrasts.
