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.

PMsaw this petite collectionearlier this yearat 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.
