Lapitec at SICAM: kitchen worktops go touch

October 2018

Lapitec continues its advances in applied research and development for full-body sintered stone.  At SICAM, the International Exhibition of Components, Accessories and Semi-finished Products for the furniture industry, set to take place from 16th to 19th October in Pordenone, Italy, the Veneto-based company will exhibit a series of new hi-tech products that will revolutionise the way this material is used in kitchens.

In their first foray into the kitchen, Lapitec slabs were primarily the material of choice for worktops, proving popular due to the availability of different finishes and hues to meet all design and stylistic needs.  But the workability of the material, available in large, full body slabs with calibrated thicknesses, also makes it suitable for doors and shelves, allowing designers to offer bold cuts, ribbings, and other techniques that once were only possible with natural stone.  At SICAM, the company will highlight examples of these processes and finishes, defining what has become the total Lapitec look.

Lapitec will also present an induction hob and a sink that are integrated into the kitchen worktop.  The touch commands on the surface of the worktop and on the upstand are new for 2018, offering control over certain kitchen area features, such as spot lighting, and the ability to charge wireless devices like smartphones and tablets. All these hi-tech features come with minimalist, rigorous aesthetics that maintain and enhance the natural texture of the Lapitec range of colours and finishes.
