2018 Good Design Award for Slimtech Concreto

The Slimtech Concreto collection, designed by arch. Fabio Novembre, has received a global award in recognition of its outstanding industrial design.

Selected from among over 500 companies by an international jury of architects, designers and creative directors, Lea Ceramiche, synonymous with creativity, technological innovation and experimentation in the ceramic sector, was awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum for the excellent design and innovation of its Slimtech Concrete collection. Designed by Arch. Fabio Novembre, the series won, in the Building Materials category, the 2018 Good Design Award, one of the most important and historic international design awards.

Once again this year, the prestigious annual competition awarded the most original and interesting products, consolidating their value at a global level.


Notably, Slimtech Concreto by Fabio Novembre explores the theme of cement with a hyper-realistic representation of cement surfaces. Through the 6mm-thick Slimtech slabs in large formats up to 120x260cm, the different textures and colours articulate the collection, which consists of 5 different colours and 4 variants. These decorative elements enhance the textured effect of laminated stoneware through high-tech thin slabs.
The award therefore recognizes over fifteen years of passionate and committed work by Lea Ceramiche, which has aimed to transform ceramic from a simple and traditional building material to a crucial decorative element for interiors and architecture. The high technology of Slimtech slabs and the company’s deep knowledge of the material, combined with Fabio Novembre’s creativity, has resulted in a collection with a contemporary design that is suitable to any living environment and for large supplies. Combining extraordinary lightness, strength and sustainability with a production that has a reduced environmental impact in terms of raw materials and CO2 emissions, Slimtech Concreto is also the best-performing material in the construction of buildings with low energy consumption.
“We started working together with Lea Ceramiche many years ago and this has brought about a relationship of mutual respect and esteem. It was inevitable that it would have led to something more… Concreto.”

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
