Laufen’s mimo collection was awarded a 2009 red dot award for best product design in the bathroom fittings category. Mimo, called the “Mini Cooper of the bathroom fleet,” features scaled down sinks, toilets, vanities and a small bathtub, illustrating that big things come in small packages.

PM saw this petite collection earlier this year at the ISH trade fair, and was impressed with its dynamic styling and appeal to a changing mindset of maximizing smaller spaces.

There were more than 11,000 submissions from 61 countries for this year’s international red dot design award. It is divided into three categories: “red dot award: product design,” “red dot award: communication design” and “red dot award: design concept.” The award-winning products are put before an international audience in the red dot design museum.
