ELEPHOUNTAIN A Cibicworkshop design for Lea Ceramiche

On the occasion of the 2013 edition of Bologna Water Design, Lea Ceramiche presents “Elephountain”, a Cibicworkshop design, in collaboration with Luceplan. Against the striking backdrop of the Ex Ospedale dei Bastardini of Bologna, the installation interprets the theme of water in a joyful and poetic manner. The sculpture, represented by a large fountain cleverly illuminated by Luceplan, consists of a large tank and a central wall on which ten elephant heads are fixed, through which water flows out. Made of ceramic, the plastic shapes of the animals recall the ancient tradition where the water source was expressed through the depiction of wild animals. Water and ceramic, two closely connected elements: the mixture of clay, sand and natural substances gives rise to the porcelain stoneware thanks to the precise mixing with water. The central structure Queste sono le caratteristiche del gioco della Roulette . that receives the ceramic shapes is entirely covered with Slimtech, the latest in ceramic materials. The large slabs, only 3.5mm thick and characterized by oversized formats up to a maximum of 3 m x 1 m, in the milk shade version, cover the tank providing a cement effect.

Slimtech in the Lealab version is visible on both sides of the vertical block: a lightweight design is imprinted using the innovative Lea digital printing technique on laminated porcelain, with the delicate patterns lending movement to the surface to create a three-dimensional effect. The Elephountain installation shows the multiple applications of ultra-thin slab. Easily adaptable for covering any surface as a traditional floor and wall tiles, as well as for a non-conventional use of ceramic material, Slimtech can be used for fountains and swimming pools like in the installation for the Bologna Water Design, creating decorative effects with strong visual impact. The e06 spotlights by Luceplan accent the fountain and panels with a few touches of warm light, to underscore and enhance the qualities of the materials in an almost theatrical atmosphere.

LEALAB: creativity in digital format | Lea Ceramiche @Cersaie 2013

Slimtech, the thin, ultra-light slab from Lea Ceramiche continues with its constant evolution. Thanks to the innovative digital printing technique, it becomes the material on which any image can be imprinted: the result is Lealab, the solution for made-to-measure projects. A Lealab creation from Lea Ceramiche will be seen at the “outside the fair” event at Bologna Water Design with an installation designed by Cibicworkshop with the participation of Luceplan.

 Lealab is a container designed to give room to creativity. A mix of technologies at the service of not just professionals.

The starting point is Slimtech, the latest generation ceramic material. Tough and lasting in spite of the thickness being only 3.5mm, this product has revolutionized the ceramic sector in recent years. With its large sizes, up to a maximum of 3 m x 1 m, it has superseded the traditional concept of the tile. With Slimtech the decoration also undergoes evolution: in fact, the laminated porcelain slab becomes the support on which any image can be imprinted; thanks to a new digital printing technique, the bright colours as well as the colour shades remain unchanged, with truly amazing end results. The possibility of having any kind of customization, even in minimum quantities, in residential as well as architectural constructions, is called Lealab, a new “made-to-measure service” created by Lea Ceramiche. The technical skills of Lea Ceramiche and natural ability to produce quality products, constitute an absolute guarantee to support any project, at every stage.

Lealab allows printing of any kind of image. The printing inks used are water-based, non-toxic, resistant to sunlight. After the image is imprinted on the Slimtech 3 Plus ceramic support, a protective layer of water-based substance is applied to cover the slab, giving it three different finishes: a totally matt effect, natural where the surface is more transparent and luminous; and finally, polished, for a perfectly glossy finish.

The applications of Lealab are endless. It adapts perfectly to decorative as well as architectural needs. In residential contexts, in addition to traditional wall tiles, it can be used for covering any type of furniture (tables, cupboards, cabinets, shelves, benches); it can be used for kitchen counter tops and in the bathroom. Being moisture-resistant, it is ideal for showers, Turkish baths and swimming pools. Owing to its high degree of durability, resistance to colours and to atmospheric agents, Lealab is also recommended for outdoor use for covering buildings with ventilated walls or cladding, offering captivating looks and great visual impact. Lealab is printed on Slimtech 3 Plus, reinforced laminated porcelain slab available in the following standard sizes: 50 x 50cm, 50 x 100cm, 100 x 100cm and 100 x 300cm.
