The new bathroom collection Ino, designed for LAUFEN by French designer Toan Nguyen, understands itself as a fresh interpretation of classic washbasin forms. The innovative collection skilfully uses the creative possibilities of LAUFEN’s SaphirKeramik. Elegant, inviting and almost weightless objects, the pieces work with simple lines, creating soft yet extremely stable walls. The collection includes a wall-mounted washbasin, a countertop or half inserted washbasin bowl, as well as high-quality bathroom furniture and two bathtubs.
A fine feeling for the trends and developments in business and the environment characterise the design of Toan Nguyen: With his design studio, the Toan Nguyen Studio, he designs products that lend the spirit of the times a timeless shape. Toan Nguyen was born in Paris in 1969 and graduated in 1995 as an industrial designer from ENSI-Les Ateliers in Paris. Nguyen gained experience by working at various design offices in Paris, Barcelona and Madrid, before starting a 10-year collaboration as a design director and design partner with Antonio Citterio in 1998. During this period, he came up with designs for brands like Axor Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Flos, Fusital, Guzzini, Iittala, Kartell, Metalco, Skantherm, Technogym and Vitra. Toan Nguyen established his own design studio in Milan in 2008.
