When it comes to bathroom design, ceramics hold a timeless charm. Today’s design trailblazers are looking to classic designs for new inspiration.
Renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has crafted a solution with the new award-winning collection: The New Classic.
With a clean and minimalist look, The New Classic collection is a fresh take on classic bathroom furniture.
Think traditional bathtubs, vanities and basins with their beautiful soft curves, complete with architectural lines that create clean and streamlined shapes.
There’s really no mystery as to why The New Classic has become a frontrunner, having also won the IF Design Award and Red Dot Design Award in 2019.
To Wanders, design plays a key role in helping us create spaces that truly allow us to relax.
"The bathroom is a place reserved for relaxation, rejuvenation and true peace."
One of the collection’s successes can be attributed to its innovative ceramic: SaphirKeramik.
Using a mineral component found in sapphires, Saphirkeramik allows you to create porcelain with very thin lines, while still remaining super durable – strong as steel, in fact!
This innovation has granted designers like Marcel the ability to create ultra-thin ceramic surfaces to make the most out of bathroom spaces.

The collection consists of era-inspired washbasins, toilets, a bidet, a freestanding bath and a selection of accessories.
For the basins, you also have the choice to tone up the serenity with elegant walnut vanity legs.
All of these handmade pieces flow together to create a sense of calm and cleanliness in your bathroom, making you become one with your rejuvenating rituals.
The New Classic by Swiss bathroom specialist LAUFEN, is available exclusively to Australians through Reece.
