At Living Kitchen in Cologne, Lapitec will be presenting the new colours for its sintered stone cladding to the German market

From 16 to 22 September, the Italian company will be at the Living Kitchen trade fair for the first time. There are many new things and innovations to be seen in hall 4.1, stand B036: the new veined Arabescatos and the Avana colour; Gandhara, a creation by minotticucine that combines natural stone and Lapitec sintered stone surfaces in a surprising manner. At the stand, it will also be possible to find out about the colour concept conceived by Lapitec, which will occupy one end of the colour palette, as well as Antracite, which is already in the catalogue.
A triumph of warm shades with Avana and the full body qualities of veined Arabescatos
The new Avana colour fits into the Lapitec monochromatic colour palette: a vast range of alternatives covering the entire colour spectrum. Avana is a warm colour that offers a contemporary nuance and has already become a classic in many urban and architectural sintered stone surfaces. Like all the other colours, Avana will be available in the seven Lapitec finishes: Vesuvio, Arena, Lux, Satin, Lithos, Dune, and Fossil. There are three new veined Arabescatos, available in the Lux, Lithos, and Satin finishes. The first proposal is Bernini: a two-tone grey with ebony coloured veining. Conversely, Donatello is a highly pronounced arabesque on a background of pale and warm nuances; finally, Canova offers all-diagonal veining on a pale coloured background. 
Lapitec and minotticucine, between nature and naturalness
Minotticucine has created a kitchen that celebrates an unprecedented combination of natural and sintered stone. It is from this concept that Gandhara is born. A meeting of materials, filled with visual silence, which surprises and reveals new aesthetic possibilities enriched by innovative technologies. The sliding kitchen worktop, made of brushed Rainforest Gold natural stone - from Stocchero Attilio S.r.l. (Verona), exclusive Lapitec distributor for Germany and the Benelux region, -, hides the top made entirely of Lapitec. The sintered stone's Lux finish enhances the ambient brightness creating an elegant and refined effect that makes the most of the warm Mediterranean tones of the Moca colour. The worktop is equipped with an autonomous refrigerated area (with a temperature that can be set from 0 to +10 degrees centigrade) that is completely invisible, as well as an induction hob that can be activated in another area of the top.
A colour concept that enriches the colour palette
Thirteen colour options, now joined by the veined Arabescatos. This is the full range of nuances that Lapitec offers designers, architects and companies in the kitchen world. Between 2016 and 2017, the company has also been working on a new colour: it will be a very intense black, which will go beyond the darkest colour – Antracite – already available in the palette.
