Lapitec chooses the project resulting from a partnership with the Verona Academy of Fine Arts

Taboo is the names of the project done by university students who were given the possibility to get to know Lapitec in depth during the academic year. It is a creative interpretation of the full body sintered stone’s potential, applied to the world of design. 

Taboo is a concept that stimulates reflection on modern lifestyles, made of increasingly connected days, full of professional and personal commitments and in which the desk is often the hub of our activities. The students of Verona, therefore, thought of tabletop objects with a hexagonal profile that can be used as smartphone stands and cup holders. Lapitec’s extreme workability has allowed very fine carvings to be made, enhancing the object’s function and bringing out the material’s beauty.

“The work carried out together with the University”, comments Gino Sartor, Lapitec’s marketing manager, “was very stimulating because it allowed the students to get to know an innovative material and to take on the processes of creating a prototype. In fact, today it is increasingly essential for an architect or designer to have a clear idea of the material's potential and distinctive features. For our part, it was a time of great creative enrichment that has certainly become a part of the company’s professional wealth.”
