Baboon / Porcelain stool

Baboon

Discipline: Product

Baboon

Discipline: Product

Strong yet very thin-walled, SaphirKeramik is a material that enables products to reach new dimensions and allows otherwise traditional ceramic material to be used for a new purpose. In collaboration with the HGK Academy of Art and Design in Basel, the Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen produced an industrial design module focused on Saphirkeramik. From this collaboration, student Joe Griesbach designed a bathroom stool, which was inspired by African drum forms and Ethiopian head supports.
