Laguna Collection causes a stir at Ish Frankfurt

The collection was designed exclusively for the Jaquar Group by world renowned designers Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez of Matteo Thun & Partners


The Jaquar Group chose the recently held ISH Frankfurt – the world’s main trade fair focused on the responsible management of water and energy in buildings – showcased for the first time in a special preview the Laguna Collection, designed by renowned designers Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez exclusively for Jaquar.


Revealed in front of international visitors, buyers, suppliers and designers from around the world, the collection includes lightweight seamless bathroom design pieces. Created from high quality ceramic, the items are slender, making it effortless to blend. Designed in three colour groups, the collection includes faucets, accessories, furniture, showers and bathtubs which have various metal finishes or can be created with top quality wood such as oak and walnut wood.

It was no mistake that Jaquar collaborated with world renowned designers Matteo Thun & Partners, a multicultural architecture and design studio headquartered in Milan and with subsidiaries in Shanghai.
