In the showroom on Via Durini in Milan, Lea Ceramiche rings in the new year with an exciting new project by Fabio Novembre.
Beginning with recent projects like Casa Milan and the Carpisa stores, in which Lea Ceramiche’s products were selected for the cladding of interior surfaces, the collaboration with Fabio Novembre continues in 2016 with his personal interpretation of the use of ceramic materials.
The star of the display is the new Calacatta Gold Extra from the Timeless Marble Slimtech collection, a reinterpretation of one of nature’s most valuable and sought after marbles.
Imposing slabs of laminated porcelain cover the entire ground floor. The large format (3m x 1m and only 5 mm thick), with its luminous polished finish and stark color, uses the walls to emphasize how precious and monumental this marble is. The contrast between the classical nature of the Slimtech slabs and the technological equipment on the walls, creates a virtual location, a material yet evocative space enhanced by the size of the two chairs.
In keeping with its vocation, the Lea Ceramiche showroom on Via Durini offers different points of view on the topics of decoration and surfaces. An unconventional use of ceramic material suggested over the years by temporary installations created by respected international architects, chance encounters that often transform into longstanding professional collaborations.
