The Lamitak 2012-13 Collection
New textures and hues reflect the emerging trends from Europe.
Lamitak’s latest 2012-13 collection features solid colours in muted pastels, baked-on brights and intense darks, as well as wood-grain and patterned laminates that take their lead from the current eco-hedonistic influences found in clothing, fabrics and furniture in the world’s leading fashion capitals.
Vera Florentina Marble: Inspired by the rich marble found in Florentina, Italy and available in off-white, grey and black tones, and even a subtle green-grey variant
"In my recent trips to Milan and Cologne, and from my research, I've observed that the design trends for 2012-13 are leaning towards textures and hues. Textures are presented in two ways: soft, subtle and calm – materials are in their natural form but treated to achieve a muted effect; and raw, weathered and industrial – where materials are exposed, laid bare and subjected to the elements," says Jansen Tan, Lamitak's head of Product and Design Development.
Goyo Ramblas: Simulates untreated concrete surfaces that typically occur in construction sites
"I set out to capture naturally-occurring effects of time and weather on woods, concrete and other surfaces; to bring expressions of real life and nature found outside into living spaces inside."
Biero Oak Granada: The design is aligned with the global trend of bringing greater natural-ness to materials
“Hues are captured in deep rich tones in a baked-on effect, like that of baked bricks. Altered pastels and urban darks will also feature strongly in the design industry, where colours are very muted and subdued and reflect the urban landscape of today in deep and neutral colours respectively.”
