Slimtech Lea is the revolution of porcelain laminate. Extraordinary light with a high degree of manoeuvrability, it is produced in whole sheets of 300×100 cm without the use of moulds and only 3mm thick. Patrick Norguet has designed ‘Dotted Conversation’ as part of ‘Slimtech Events’ a collaboration of leading designers and architects. Zaha Hadid has also been involved with her “Twirl’ project as part of the Mutant Interior Architecture & Design event during the Salone del Mobile 2011.
Lines and Waves are the revolutionary protagonists of the installation conceived by the French designer for Lea Ceramiche. A micro-architecture, comprised of 3 communicating modules, stands out at the centre of the space and with a play on perspectives is surprising in the flexibility of the material covering it: super slim laminated porcelain Slimtech slabs only 3 mm thick! They however allow a large 300x100cm format, produced with advanced Lea Full HD technology which allows all types of decorative designs to be printed on glazed porcelain.
The Lines pattern, a composition of lines and vertical strokes which overlay and follow one another, first of all drawn by hand, then converted graphically by computer into countless punctiform elements, confers vibration, as well as depth, to the surface and intensifies the sensuality of the material through colour variation. Inviting visitors to enter the narrow and quiet passages and become totally immersed amongst the materials. A sensory conversation between design and technology.
