The building of the Carlos Rosario International PCS cooking school in Washington, DC (project by Shinberg Levinas Architects) was inaugurated in November 2013 and contains a resource centre, offices, English and computer science classrooms, four culinary laboratories with kitchens, and a large caffetteria. In the luminous common areas, which visually interact with the exterior, Lea Ceramiche‘s ultra-thin slabs of laminated porcelain clad the entire surface area, echoing the exterior cladding which also made use of large slabs applied on a thermal insulation system.

TYPE 32 SLIMTECH by Diego Grandi


Lea Ceramiche Type 32 Slimtech, begins with matter but ultimately transcends it. On slabs of laminated stoneware with a wood effect, the project surprises with graphics offered in 4 colour variations that allow for infinite combinations and which create an original and unusual variation on decorated flooring.



The collection is made in Slimtech slabs 5.5mm thick, the innovative large, thin slabs. Consisting of two apparently different surfaces, Take Care is the result of a harmonious interchange. In Take, we see the continuous spatula finish between the resin and the cement, Care has a more hybrid identity, like a natural fabric reworked to give a more tactile effect.
