Lapitec on show
at KBIS 2019 with ‘total looks’ for interiors and exteriors

Eclectic, versatile, functional: Lapitecs full body sintered stone
will be vaunting all its potential at KBIS, an important sector appointment for
Italian companies, which will be held from 19 to 21 February 2019, at the Las
Vegas Convention Center. This year, the stand at the American tradeshow will be
a celebration of the material’s ability to ‘bend’ to the creative whims and
technical needs of architects and interior designers alike.

The fundamental concept behind the
display is to recreate the impression of a large public space. A square, featuring
large structural elements and furnishings made from Lapitec 
slabs in
various formats, creates a ‘landscape’ that invites the visitors to lose
themselves, touching and exploring the different materials and finishes. It’s a
very eclectic material and this is why we wanted to show different situations
that express
Lapitecs versatility and
its wide variety of applications in both architecture and design”, comments
Devvy Comacchio, the architect who designed the stand.

In fact, the
stand has been thought-up as an open space with tall slabs and a formal and
aesthetic clarity that highlights the multiple qualities of sintered stone,
which will be showcased in four different categories: spa, bathroom, kitchen
and coverings.  

The Lapitec wellness
spa

A relaxing space
with an ‘architectural silence’ that creates a peaceful haven far from the
noise and stress of the outside world. This is the sensation that emanates from
the refined and elegant wellness space showcased at Las Vegas, proposed in a
striking contrast of Nero Assoluto in the Vesuvio finish. Meanwhile, the
bathroom area has been given a bright and airy mood by the Bianco Assoluto, Lux-finish
slabs, resulting in a chromatic duality and aesthetic continuity with a bold
and unique stylistic imprint. The showcase has been further enhanced by the
Gessi taps and fittings, for a high-impact finish that marries perfectly with Lapitec
 stone.

Kitchen aesthetic continuity and flexibility – indoors and outdoors

A go-to
material for the kitchen sector, Lapitec
 will also be
the feature of three different kitchen producers’ stands. The first is a Giza
kitchen by Maistri, ‘dressed’ entirely in Bianco Assouluto, Lux-finish, from
the worktops to the wall and floor coverings. The stand will also be the stage
of a show cooking event, where visitors can get to see the enormous day-to-day functionality
and durability of the kitchen and materials first-hand. Whereas, for the Italian-American
company Interni Cucine, Lapitec 
will be using Velvet-finish, in the Berlin
shade (launched in 2018), for the worktop surfaces. Finally, Grigio Cemento, Satin-finish,
will be the material of choice for an outdoor kitchen display. The company’s
stand will also be showcasing Orion, a built-in sink designed in-house, which
will be presented in three different colours options (Bianco Assoluto, Bianco
Polare and Grigio Cemento), again coordinated with Gessi taps.

Full-body floor and wall coverings: the magnitude of Lapitec slabs

Alongside
the kitchens and bathrooms, Lapitec
 will also be used to ‘construct’ the
vertical panels of the stand, In fact,
Lapitecs large-format
slabs are ideal for covering large areas and facades, becoming not only a
construction element but also a means of expression that provides designers and
architects with a wide variety of solutions for adding their own personal
imprint to every project.
