Nest Slimtech by Lea wins Best of Year Award
Nest Slimtech, the Lea Ceramiche collection designed by HOK Product Design, has won Interior Design's Annual Best of Year Award 2014 in the Flooring: Tile and Stone category. Celebrating its 9th edition this year, the prize is promoted by the American magazine Interior Design and represents one of the world's most prestigious design competitions.
Nest won the Best of Year Award 2014 in the tile and stone floorings category within the products section.
Drawing inspiration from forms found in the natural world, Nest is made of irregular elements (edge measurement 100 cm) which are combined to create large hexagonal shapes. This infinite woven puzzle, which offers a new and unconventional use of ceramics, gives a unique touch and a structural element to surfaces, with a view to transforming the architectural and domestic landscapes of any city. Nest offers an infinite variety of combinations of shape and colour, which become patterns that can be used to express the creativity of any designer.
"Nest is a range of hexagons and triangles, affectionately named Pac Man, which can be used in many aesthetic solutions and allows architects and designers to truly use their imagination", explained Susan Grossinger of HOK Product Design. Nest is made with Lea Ceramiche's Slimtech ultra-thin laminated porcelain tiles. Strong and durable despite its thickness of just 3mm, this product has revolutionised the ceramics sector in recent years.
