Laminam, the skin for architecture and design, is synonymous with hard-wearing and recognisable surface. Laminam slab is not just a design element; it can become the unique material with which to functionally decorate and clad any space. It was with this approach that Michele Vitaloni, Interior Designer at Charmitaliastudio, conceived and developed the internal and external restyling of Villa Due in Forte dei Marmi. The clean lines and pure, functional design make for a rational style that is also aesthetically pleasing, a distinctive mark of the Studio that finds expression in the choice of cladding materials.
Indoors, Calce Bianco flooring gives continuity to the garden, as if the internal and external environments were one unique, uninterrupted space. Only in the basement, a space for games and recreational use, do the floors break with the colour continuity while retaining the material. The chosen finish is Calce Nero that, used for the flooring, showcases the large pool table in the centre of the room and highlights the cue rack with a decorative wall frame.
The bathrooms, with their essential and functional design, are well-finished right down to the smallest detail. Laminam slabs are used here to highlight elements in the room, each space standing out for its shape and colours thanks to the selection of different cladding finishes: I Naturali, Pietra di Savoia Antracite - Filo, Oro - Fokos, Sale – Oxide, Bianco – Ossido, Bruno (also used for some of the sink tops.
