Italian-made LAMINAM is the ultimate in size, style, and durability.
Porcelain is nothing new, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming the hottest trend the design industry has seen in years. Of course, this trend has been sparked by innovative new manufacturing techniques that allow the ceramic standard to take on the appearance of a host of other surfaces, opening up the designer’s toolbox to a range of looks that they would probably otherwise consider “off limits.”
For example, even the boldest of designers would probably never spec wood flooring in a bathroom. But with porcelain slabs that have been manufactured to recreate the look of wood, designers are free to explore without fear. Specifically, Laminam’s Cava collection – Bianco Statuario Venato and Calacatta Oro Venato patterns not only evoke natural beauty but also bookmatch with subtle features of asymmetry found in natural stone slabs. Overall, Porcelain’s durability allows it to work in nearly any environment, and some products can even be used outdoors for patios and walkways.
This kind of durability is what makes LAMINAM such an incredible surface. LAMINAM is manufactured in Modena, Italy, with an innovative process that combines finely ground clay, granite, and feldspar, sintered at 1200°C to create an extremely durable surface. LAMINAM slabs are so strong, in fact, that they are available in XL 127.5” x 63.7” slabs, with a thickness of just 12mm (0.47”). Additionally, fiberglass sheeting is applied to the backing for additional strength and support.
However, what REALLY sets LAMINAM apart is that it is available in 4 surface finishes (natural, lucidato, matte and soft touch), with a number of beautiful styles with authentic veining and features that emulate wood, concrete, marble, stone, or even weathered metal. This makes LAMINAM a superb surface, offering unrivaled creative versatility with its large, thin slabs, extreme durability, and exquisite styling to match virtually any design theme. Designers looking for the perfect surface may find exactly what they need in LAMINAM.
The end result is an XL porcelain slab that can be used for virtually ANY application. It can be used on walls, as flooring, applied to countertops, or even applied to the exterior of a building.
Is LAMINAM the best porcelain surface yet? Perhaps. It certainly offers more versatility than most. But remember, there are a lot of really excellent, high-quality surfaces out there. And you can rest assured that you’ll find them all at Opustone.
