Home' Homes : Homes 2009 Contents With the demands of the building and interior
design industries getting more challenging
by the day, more is being asked of material
manufacturers. Some industries have struggled, while
others have flourished.
One such victory is the development of Laminam,
a product with a thousand applications.
Established in Fiorano Modenese in the world-famous
ceramics district, Laminam's development was driven by
an idea to produce the largest and thinnest ceramics slab
Befitting such a groundbreaking product, Laminam
is produced via a highly automated manufacturing
process where each individual step is at the forefront
of technology in its respective field.
Laminam in its commercial form is known as LAM'Slab,
a product that thanks to its properties, dimensions and an
extensive palette, can be used in a variety of applications
across the trade.
While its environmental friendliness has won it many
admirers in industry circles, Laminam's ability to prevent
the formation and growth of moulds, fungi and bacteria
makes it an ideal choice for use in bathroom and kitchens.
A high-breaking point and resistance to chemicals,
frost, fire and UV rays add to the product's hard-wearing
To help people choose the best LAM'Slab for their
application, Laminam has been grouped into a trio of
di erent projects (or as they say in Italiano, progettos) --
Collection, Metropolis and Sketch.
Collection is available in a vast colour scale and is
designed to not just cover, but to also stimulate ideas
when it comes to designing and decorating kitchen and
Metropolis, as the name suggests, is all about thinking
big and features textures and patterns on large Laminam
surfaces in the creation of new "look and feel" experiences.
Metropolis can also be used with other Laminam
projects to combine the aesthetical with the technical.
Finally, with its woody grain, Sketch isn't just about
emulating the look of timber, but also about encouraging
the pursuit of ideas without fearing traditional boundaries
-- combined with a sense of adventure and avante garde
imagination, Sketch can help bring a real organic feel to
even the most urban of home settings.
SKETCH -- wood-grained
to inspire creativity.
