Introducing the Thinnest Surfaces in the World

    Global leader in the design and production of sustainable, large sized natural porcelain surfaces, Laminam has revolutionised the world of architecture and design with its latest sub-brand launch of ultra-thin, lightweight and sustainable surfaces - twO by Laminam.

    The first collection, Gemini is being showcased for the first time at the 62nd edition of Salone Del Mobile in Milan (16th – 21st April, Fiera Milano exhibition center, Hall 22 - Stand G16 / G18).

    Research and technology: a winning combination

    twO by Laminam raises the bar for quality in terms of beauty, sustainability and technological innovation in the architecture and interior design sectors. Years of technical research and pioneering application know-how have opened the way to never-before seen levels of innovation. The thinnest surfaces in the world are also the lightest, while maintaining all the technical performance of Laminam’s larger slabs. What’s more, the new surfaces bring with them a sense of ease and ductility which ranges from flexibility to ease of cutting, use on site, and last but not least, transportation.

    Combining the foundations of classic Italian architecture with the inherent beauty of natural stone, twO by Laminam’s porcelain surfaces are UV and temperature resistant as well as ultra-durable and hardwearing, making them the perfect surface solution for wall and furniture cladding, indoors and out.

    Sustainable to the core

    Once again, Laminam is putting sustainability at the core of its strategic development vision, translating it into revolutionary surfaces created with recycled and entirely recyclable materials. twO by Laminam commits to sustainability throughout the various phases of the value chain, from procurement of materials and production, through to transport to the homeowner. Over 70% of contributions to the company carbon footprint will be reduced thanks to this lighter and less voluminous product, making it the number one surface of choice for sustainably minded projects. What’s more, the remarkably slim thickness allows for optimisation of the entire lifecycle of the product: the firing phase is faster and performed using electric kilns powered by the company’s solar PV system, while transportation emissions are reduced thanks to the significantly lower overall weight.
