Scacco Matto

Diego Grandi

Scacco Matto (Check Mate) is the name given to the new showroom display in the Milan space of Lea Ceramiche, offering a panorama of the most recent products presented by the company from Modena.

Designed by Diego Grandi, the space gives an ironic interpretation of a chess game, in which domestic environments interact with iconic furnishing and the new collections of Lea Ceramiche.

The black and white Absolute Slimtech floor tiles amplify the space giving it light and a spacious feeling thanks to the polished finish of the laminated porcelain; the latest development in a technology that was until recently unthinkable on such thin tiles.

The imposing marble effect modules of the collection Timeless Marble provide a frame to the walls: the Bianco Statuario and Pietra Gray in the polished and satin finishes offer slight differences in tone, keeping the ceramic material natural.

A salient feature of Slimtech’s versatility is displayed on the different sized objects that are entirely covered with the product, highlighting the ease with which laminated porcelain can be applied to virtually any sub-structure, with aesthetically perfect contours, corners and edge finishes.

"Since 2003 I have created five collections for Lea Ceramiche, which have marked several key moments in a process of interpreting the material, a process that has been constant over time."

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
