Italian company, Lapitec, will be showcasing its true Italian flair during Milan’s Salone del Mobile exhibition. Taking centre stage in the brand’s beautiful showcase will be the Bianco Assoluto and Nero Assoluto sintered stone surfaces.
A whole host of kitchen companies have, in fact, turned to Lapitec to provide sleek, chic and sophisticated worktops for their kitchen installations for 2018’s Eurocucina exhibition. Two different versions of the Giza kitchen will be finished with luxurious Lapitec surfaces, at Maistri’s design-led stand; while Nero Assoluto will be used to craft a monolithic island unit, with worktops and doors both in the sintered stone, and play host to a Pitt cooking worktop, with three integrated burners, alongside a refrigeration system. Looking toward the lighter tones, Bianco Assoluto will stand strong in its own kitchen design, which will boast an integrated sink and a Lapitec patented under-worktop induction hob.
Alongside Maistri, Lube, Cadore Comprex, Del Curto, Febal and Scavolini (on show in the Diesel Living collection) will all be showcasing kitchens with Lapitec® worktops. While a full body of sintered stone will feature on a table by Roda, the high-end, Brianza-based outdoor furnishings company.
Milan Design Week
A short step away from Salone del Mobile, Lapitec will also be making its mark at the surrounding events of Milan Design Week. Marco Piva will be using the material for ’The Secret Colours of Milan’ project, on show in the Galleria Manzoni (exhibition from 17 to 22 April, free entry). The architect – who previously presented a range of new colours with the company at the last Cersaie tradeshow – has developed an immersive display of eight different spaces, two of which use Lapitec® stone.
Two walls of the ‘scenographic’ interiors have been finished in sintered stone, which has been used to create a striking chromatic and geometric effect, where the composition of shape and colour recalls Cubism and the aesthetic of Mondrian.
