TORONTO, ON. (June 13, 2023) – Laminam, a global leader in producing natural surfaces for interior and exterior design applications, has officially launched the highly anticipated new Diamond Series in the North American market. The state-of-the-art collection, unveiled during the prestigious 61st edition of Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy this past April, highlights Laminam’s commitment to innovation, extreme durability, and timeless design.
Through their dedication to surface innovation, Laminam’s R&D department has crafted two new finishes as part of this color collection. The Polished Starlit finish is characterized by its stardust effect created from a special formula based on quartz powder, making it a perfect fit for contemporary projects. The Caress finish offers a delicate tactile experience with a soft to the touch finish.
Calacatta Black enhances any project, exuding elegance and prestige while addressing the evolving design preferences of the industry, where rich details and decorative flourishes are becoming increasingly sought after. Available in the new Polished Starlit finish and the popular Bocciardato finish, Calacatta Black emulates the refinement of black marble while infusing warmth with subtle hints of beige. Its versatility opens new avenues for creativity, with various formats and thicknesses suitable for an array of applications, including countertops, flooring, stairs, wall cladding, exterior facades, furniture, wet areas, fireplace cladding, and more.
With its soft and delicate aesthetic adorned with beige, amber, and gold veining, Cristallo Gold captures the essence of natural crystal with enhanced patterns across a milky surface. The graphic purity and functional grace of this color come together to give life to an extremely versatile and modern surface that is ideal for any environment. Cristallo Gold is available in the Polished Starlit and Caress finishes.
“Laminam’s Diamond Series reinforces our commitment to R&D through the development of something different and artistically innovative within the surfaces category,” said Philip Eeles, President of Laminam North America. “We continue to redefine the boundaries of interior and exterior surface applications, empowering design professionals through these new colors to create captivating and inspiring spaces. They aren’t just beautiful. Laminam’s high-performance surfaces offer maximum functionality, are non-absorbent, stain-resistant and sustainable, containing anywhere between 20 and 60 percent pre-consumer recycled material.”
