The Fourth Wall is a ground breaking concept kitchen from Poggenpohl that incorporates high-grade cooking appliances from Electrolux Grand Cuisine.
Lapitec’s Ebano, Vesuvio features on the main stage of this theatrical kitchen as the 6m2 island and worktops.
‘For decades, kitchen design has been about concealing every element. Instead I drew my inspiration for The Fourth Wall from early kitchens where function informed the layout. In The Fourth Wall, the preparation of ingredients and the cooking process become theatre for today’s passionate home cooks, while the eclectic mix of textures and finishes, plus the creative use of lighting, engages with the senses and engenders an emotional response’ Andrew Hays, for House & Garden magazine.
The Fourth Wall, with it’s blend of lacquer, brass, engineered stone and leather, together with the mirrored finish of Grand Cuisine’s appliances, provides a dramatic and modern kitchen. A concept that will define the kitchens of the future.

Lapitec is made from 100% natural minerals without the use of any resins or binding agents.
Lapitec is imporous and is therefore water resistant. Ideal for bathrooms or pool surrounds.
The Lapitec collection is available in slab sizes of 3365 x 1500mm.
Due to Lapitec’s inherent density, it can withstand forces above and beyond it’s predecessors – providing the solid surface with longevity.
The beautiful and natural colours from the Lapitec collection will remain the same over time and will never fade, even with continued exposure to UV light.
Lapitec slabs are full bodied and as such composition, physical and visual properties are consistent throughout.
The beauty of Lapitec is that it’s engineered for life – even at only 12mm thick, Lapitec is one of the strongest hard surface materials on the market.
Complete resistance and protection against acids and alkali, leaving you with the confidence of knowing that any cleaning, spillages or mishaps will not effect your Lapitec surfaces.
