Lapitec: Large format ecological plates and coatings
Lapitec is an Italian firm that manufactures and distributes a high-performance sustainable material for flooring and cladding in interior design and architecture projects.
Lapitec is one of the most interesting case studies in the world of design in recent years, especially considering that the first slab of the material hit the market in 2012, just eight years ago.
The success of the product is based on a combination of characteristics that perfectly respond to market trends, as well as an evident focus on sustainability, both in the raw materials used and in the stages of the production process.
Lapitec is a 100% natural mineral blend, which when baked at high temperatures produces “full body” plates: the exterior and interior are identical, with no enamel or digital printing on the surface. This feature allows Lapitec to be machined to full thickness while ensuring consistent appearance and performance and avoiding the use of resins, inks, and other petroleum derivatives.
Lapitec slabs, 3365 mm long, are available in 3 collections, 17 colors and 7 different surface textures, and can also be customized. They are not only used as interior and exterior surface cladding, but also for roofs, yachts, swimming pools and product design, from tables to consoles and from bathrooms to kitchens, where the total absence of surface porosity makes Lapitec ideal in terms of hygiene and ease of maintenance.
In recent years, Lapitec slabs have been used for public buildings, residential complexes, infrastructure, places of worship and marine applications, but also for the creation, in collaboration with other designer brands, of kitchens, outdoor furniture, tables and latest generation technologies.
