Visitors to this year’s 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show had ample opportunity to view Lapitec in completely new settings.
Juliet Sargeant, MSGD selected Lapitec as one of the stones used as flooring in her Modern Slavery Garden. The garden’s theme is modern slavery behind closed doors and draws attention to the 13,000 current victims of slavery in the UK. Sargeant used the dark grey Lapitec Antracite stone in two different finishes in the heart of her garden – its ‘dark centre’ – which hints at slavery in a ‘normal’ UK Street happening behind closed doors.
Lapitec also featured as part of Solus Decor’s trade stand designed by young designer Jack Dunckley.
The Lapitec used in both areas of the Chelsea Flower Show has been worked by approved Lapitec fabricators London Stone, who commented, “It’s really exciting that two fabulous garden designers have chosen to work with Lapitec this year. We are enjoying fabricating and promoting the hard surface material – and its great news that appearing at Chelsea will help show Lapitec off to an audience of passionate gardeners and designers.”

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.
