Creativity and performance at Cevisama 2018. Lea Ceramiche interprets new trends
Valencia, 5 – 9 February
From 5-9 February Lea Ceramiche participated at the 2018 edition of Cevisama, the Spanish fair dedicated to the ceramics sector and bathroom furnishings. The core of the stand was an important overview of products, the result of the company’s creativity and continuous experimentation in ceramic materials.
There were many new products, the combined result of the most recent technological innovation and know-how rich in history and tradition. A creative vision that has led over the years to relationships with architects and designers of international reputation and to create products that are always innovative and performant. One example is Slimtech, the laminated stoneware available in large sizes (up to 3 meters in length) with reduced thicknesses of 3.5 and 5.5 mm. Lightweight, highly resistant (thanks to the fiberglass mat on the underside) and environmentally friendly, Slimtech is a flexible and versatile material, suitable for an extraordinary, new range of uses: in residential settings, as well as for traditional floors and walls, it is ideal as a surface for all types of furniture, like the tops of kitchen and bathroom units and for doors; in architecture for ventilated facades of buildings, cladding and for large-scale projects.
Presented as a tangible product library, the extravagant combination and arrangement of the materials produced an intriguing architectural structure on the Lea stand at Cevisama.
Firstly, the most recent collections in traditional thicknesses (Trame, Dreaming, Waterfall and Nextone) presented chromatic and material combinations with unusual geometric designs.
Then the imposing slabs of the Slimtech series (Take Care and Pad – designed by Patrick Norguet, Timeless Marble with Philigrane – designed by Philippe Nigro, Waterfall, Naive – designed Patrick Norguet, Absolute) highlighted the technological vocation of Lea Ceramiche and the constant desire to experiment with ceramic materials in order to take on new challenges and identify different fields of use. Both visual and tactile perception were heightened by the innovative system of suspension of the large slabs.
Lea Ceramiche selected the Spanish event to describe the creation of these products, confirming the company’s capacity as the interpreter of new trends and as a privileged presenter of new chapters in this vision of ceramics in modern architecture.
