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.
Outdoors, Laminam Calce Bianco slabs have been used to floor the courtyard and portico areas, creating uniformity with respect to the interior design. The Calce texture, inspired by industrial plasters and concretes, gives spaces a refined and contemporary look, for a sense of well-being that conciliates the peace and liveability of spaces. A particular stand-out is the external pool, partially exposed thanks to a glass portion of the wall.
The pool is also created with Laminam Calce Bianco slabs, both in the flooring that surrounds it and the interior (flooring and cladding). The delicates tones are ideal for creating spaces that are at one with nature and the Laminam large sized slabs guarantee not only the continuity of colours and materials but also indispensable advantages such as hygiene, ease of cleaning and limited surface slipperiness.
