Roll-Di is a direction indicator for roll screen curtain users. Many people get confused with which string of the curtain to pull, in order to make the curtain go up or down. As a result, people frequently make the mistake of pulling the wrong string. Roll-Di was designed to prevent those repetitive mistakes. Roll-Di can be simply hung at the bottom of the string and tells which side of the string to pull to achieve the desired position of the curtain. Roll-Di is composed of “up” and “down” arrows. By matching the “up” arrow with the string that makes the curtain go up, and attaching the two parts of Roll-Di with the embedded magnets, users will not be confused.

Living Square is a bathroom furniture collection comprised of ceramic washbasins manufactured with LAUFEN’s patent-pending SaphirKeramik—a unique material perfected after five years of intensive research and development that offers a groundbreaking alternative to traditional ceramics and expands the possibilities of ceramic design and production. Strong and malleable, SaphirKeramik permits the creation of wafer-thin yet robust walls and tight-edge radii of just 1 to 2mm, while state-of-the-art technology values are currently a minimum of 7–8 mm. Its slender profile renders it space saving, lightweight and environmentally friendly. SaphirKeramik derives its exceptional hardness and strength from its component corundum, (AI2O3), a colorless mineral found in eponymous sapphires. Rigorous testing has revealed that its flexural strength is equal to that of steel. The mineral added to the ceramic mix is also used in the watch industry as sapphire glass dials. Its hardness is surpassed only by that of diamonds.
