On the occasion of the premier international art show for modern and contemporary works, bringing leading galleries from around the world to the heart of Europe, Laufen Bathrooms organizes a collateral event in the striking architecture of the Laufen Forum next to the company’s headquarters.

Laufen is hosting an experiential evening full of unexpected interactions, installations and discussions that will provoke thoughts about art, architecture, design and innovation at the Laufen Forum. Featuring an installation curated by Dante – Goods and Bads which was originally presented during the Milan Design Week at the Brand New World installation, an interactive dining experience created by Studio Appétit and a trend-forecasting lecture given by Zuzanna Skalska combined with a unique discussion panel fusing art, architecture, design and food.

The diversity of the creative industries has become an incentive to develop an experimental, stimulating programme in which different, independent disciplines coexist in order to stimulate an ever-changing, evolving intellectual process. The talks will be held between some of the world’s most successful architects, designers, publishers and institutions: Athanasios Argyropoulos from Marina Abramovic Institute (MIA), Kai-Uwe Bergmann from BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, Christophe de la Fontaine from Dante Goods and Bads, Marcus Fairs from Dezeen, Ido Garini from Studio Appetit and Zuzanna Skalska from 360Inspiration moderated by Jovan Jelovac, co-founder of Brand New World, forecasters of future design.


// In occasione dell’inaugurazione della fiera internazionale d’arte moderna e contemporanea, che vede riunirsi le gallerie più importanti del mondo nel cuore dell’Europa, Laufen Bathrooms organizza un evento collaterale nella cornice architettonica straordinaria del suo forum adiacente l’azienda.

Laufen ha organizzato una serata sperimentale piena di interazioni inaspettate, installazioni e dibattiti che stimoleranno pensieri sull’arte, architettura, design e innovazione, tutto questo all’interno del Forum Laufen. L’evento sarà così accompagnato da una installazione di Dante Goods and Bads presentata durante l’ultima Design Week di Milano, da una dining experience curata da Studio Appétit e da una lezione sui futuri trend tenuta da Zuzanna Skalska, tutto collegato ad una inedita tavola rotonda che unirà arte, architettura, design e cibo.  

La diversità alla base delle industrie creative è col tempo diventata un incentivo per sviluppare un programma sperimentale e stimolante al cui interno coesistono discipline indipendenti che non fanno altro che favorire un processo intellettuale in perenne trasformazione. Il simposio vedrà protagonisti alcuni dei più importanti tra architetti, designers, editori e istituzioni: Athanasios Argyropoulos del Marina Abramovic Institute (MIA), Kai-Uwe Bergmann dello studio BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, Christophe de la Fontaine di Dante Goods and Bads, Marcus Fairs di Dezeen, Ido Garini di Studio Appetit and Zuzanna Skalska di 360Inspiration moderati da Jovan Jelovac, co-fondatrice di Brand New World, forecaster del design del futuro.
