Swissbau 2018 – Off to the bathroom

The most important Swiss construction trade fair has opened its doors in Basel. Vetica is represented with numerous customer projects for LAUFEN, Bodenschatz, Schmidlin, and LaPreva.

The products and brands designed by Vetica at the Swissbau 2018 meet with lively interest and inspire with their clean and iconographic design.


Laufen and Peter Wirz have now been working together successfully for 18 years. This year Laufen is represented with the bathroom range Moderna R designed by Peter Wirz. Moderna R is a high-quality product range including various ceramic washbasins and matching furniture. Thanks to the high variability, Moderna R products can easily be combined. As a further novelty, Laufen presents the new shower toilet NAVIA this year. NAVI convinces with an even more reduced design than its predecessor RIVA, as well as with a multitude of user-friendly solutions. The intuitive shower functions can all be controlled by a single movement or with the operating and installation App developed jointly by Vetica.


Bodenschatz is launching a new NIA accessories programme on the Swiss market this year. The full range, conceived by Vetica and developed in collaboration with Bodenschatz, is aimed primarily at architects and planners and convinces with its iconographic design language. The complete NIA range gives any bathroom environment a harmonious and elegant appearance.


This year, Schmidlin will focus on rebranding designed by Vetica. Schmidlin underwent a gentle re-design of the brand strategy to the uniform brand appearance including logo, publications, website, configurator, and trade fair stand. The traditional family-owned company from Central Switzerland will in future increasingly focus on tailor-made individuality in its products. The VARIO concept was developed in close cooperation. It stands for Swiss quality, reliability, flexibility, and individuality from a Swiss hand, according to the motto “Individually Swiss Made”.


The Swiss shower toilet specialist LaPreva has presented the new LaPreva P3 shower toilet at Swissbau. The new P3 impresses with its new simplicity and its reduction to the essentials. In a timelessly modern, organic design – conceived and designed by Vetica LaPreva combines the essential functions of a shower toilet without compromises for the best possible purity feeling. After the award-winning P2, the P3 is the second product to emerge from the close collaboration between LaPreva and Vetica.
