            THE POLYHEDRON

For the 3rd edition of “Impressões”, the sculptor Maria-Carmen Perlingeiro exclusively designed a polyhedron, which Laufen produced in SaphirKeramik. The material allows for freedom to design minimalistic, architectural lines and for the production of extremely narrow radii and filigree walls with high robustness. Laufen sees design as the key to shape this material as intelligently, functional, environmentally friendly, resource-saving and aesthetically pleasing as possible.

SaphirKeramik proved itself as the ideal material for the artistic development of the handmade polyhedron, which serves as a 3-dimensional canvas for the work of the 5 artists.
