Brazil Up Close
Unlike the tourists that would flood Brazil for 2014 Football World Cup only to leave again after a
few weeks, Laufen had arrived in the country to stay. Seeing as national identity and what
international visitors would understand as Brazilianity were hot topics at the time, Laufen invited a
group of 10 architect to go beyond the first impression and investigate the intimacy of the Brazilian
home, and to create prints for the Laufen Living City washbasin that, in their view, would show
“Brazil up close”.
