Lapitec – Great News for the Industry

As we constantly keep pace with the interior design trends we definitely could not pass by this new to the North America material: Lapitec. It has won Europe already by storm.

What is Lapitec?

Lapitec is truly state of the engineering art full body sintered stone slab. Essentially it is a new material category, and that does not appear in the market often. It is created as a result of sinterization process when finest natural minerals undergo extremely high pressure and temperature – and are formed into a slab that boasts simply unparallelled properties – dense compaction, high resistance, and durability.

It is completely natural and environmentally friendly – containing no resins and petroleum byproducts. And did we mention it is non-porous and colorfast?

If you are familiar with our work already, you certainly understand that we can not bypass a brand new material, or rather, a material category that is so perfect for key interior elements.

We have created a couple of projects with Lapitec already and are truly impressed with what this great material has to offer.

Lapitec – designed to impress

In addition to that, due to the nature of its composition the slab is colored all the way through.  It opens a lot of possibilities when it comes to designing with it.

Overall, Lapitec takes the design in the direction where quartz and porcelain were thought to be indispensable, only without any limitations.

Here is the shortlist of Lapitec features:

  • Comes in large and extra wide slabs
  • Non- porous, not prone to bacteria and mold growth
