A story about the materiality of architecture

Mockup is the new installation designed by Diego Grandi or the showcase in the Lea Ceramiche showroom in Via Durini, Milan. Investigating the theme of the project, the space is transformed into a real mock-up, a physical reproduction of an architectural project, through which the designer can evaluate the actual rendering of the spaces and of all the elements that combine to create it.

In a continuous dialogue with the world of architecture and interiors, Lea’s ceramic surfaces define the identity of the space, characterizing its personality in a precise and distinctive way.

Whether they are designed for floor or wall surfaces, the Nextone e Delight collections, which made their debut at the last edition of Cersaie, are presented in the Via Durini showroom according to the designer’s interpretation and distinctive style. Winding along the volumes, the collections subdivide the perimeter of the space in the form of suspended slabs alternating with overlapping ceramic layers, highlighting formats, thicknesses, textures and decorations.


"Since 2003 I have created five collections for Lea Ceramiche, which have marked several key moments in a process of interpreting the material, a process that has been constant over time."

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
