Curved lines without handles, integrated sinks and cooktop, and a breakfast bar: HI-MACS®
, the new-generation solid surface produced by LG Hausys, is a central element in the design of the latest version of the Pedini Artika kitchen
, to be launched at IMM 2017
The Artika concept marries simplicity with efficiency: a made-to-measure ergonomic cooking/living environment, with stable and reassuring, yet graceful, shapes.
It has given rise to a slender-bodied solution, with enveloping and familiar forms, defined not only by the countertop itself, but also by the drawers and doors in the units that blend into the profile, as though sculpted by the action of wind or water.
The Artika layout is resolutely urban, and it provides readily understood coordinated spaces in a universal language which are deliberately designed to promote conviviality, while taking family meals or entertaining guests. To this end, the breakfast bar and the ample peninsulas are no longer simple supporting surfaces, but places of communication, exchange and discussion, in a typically Italian philosophy of kitchens and, more generally, of eating.
The HI-MACS® Babylon Beige finish selected for the Artika countertop, which echoes the lacquer of the vertical surfaces, is skilfully matched with wooden elements to emphasize the sensation of warmth, making it at once tactile and practical.
HI-MACS®, a thermoformable product ideal for the creation of fluid lines in countertops, is fabricated by FG Arredi srl. It can be worked so as to eliminate all visible signs of joints, enabling a single continuous element to be created that appears to have been sculpted from a single block of material.
But what is natural acrylic stone or solid surface?
Comprising different percentages of minerals, acrylics and natural pigments, it is a material of the very highest quality and is perfect for contact with food since its surface is non-porous, preventing the build-up of dirt and bacteria. Hygienic and simple to clean, HI-MACS®
is highly resistant to scratches, stains, moisture and fire, and it is thus widely used in both indoor and outdoor furniture and fittings, in architecture for facades
and inner surfaces, and in health settings
is a state-of-the-art finish that combines extreme practicality with a flexible outer appearance readily adapted to the imagination of those who employ it. Available in a huge range of colours
, both smooth and textured, HI-MACS®
is warm and silky to the touch.
