Lapitec sintered stone, used in architecture, interior and product design, announced plans for expansion in the North American market. According to the company a proprietary warehouse to efficiently serve the market will launch in Florida with a team of local professionals, proving Lapitec’s determination to boost its presence in the United States.
“There are various features of our material that have made it possible for us to engage with our American counterparts,” explains Francesco Giannini, board member of Lapitec USA . First and foremost, its great resistance combined with a completely natural composition that is free of inks, resins, glues or other toxic materials make Lapitec a catalyst for creativity and design. It can be processed along its entire thickness, comes in large sizes and is versatile, meaning that it can be used in kitchens and swimming pools, outdoor BBQs, facades and spas.
Over the years, the North American market has grown and now accounts for about a quarter of the company’s turnover. This has driven the creation of specific aesthetics and extend the range.
Lapitec unveiled the new Bianco Giulia color from the Musa collection. This new design is described as being “characterized by a subtle irregular veining on a white background recalling the charm of natural stone.”
Giannini also added that “After years of research, from this year Lapitec has eliminated the use of crystalline silica, which is naturally present in all materials of mineral origin including ceramic and quartz. The new silica-free nature of the sintered stone makes it an even more sustainable, ethical and safer choice.”
