The prestigious Red Dot Award, often referred to as the Oscars of Design, was awarded this year to the Polish designer and architect Mac Stopa for the category of Product Design 2016. During the gala night of July 4 at the Aalto -Theater in Essen, the Star Maker slab developed in collaboration with Laminam Poland received the highest award, the “Red Dot: Best of the Best”.
Mac Stopa, world-renowned for his modern, innovative and unconventional interiors, founder, architect and main designer of Massive Design studio, chose to combine his creativity with the incredible technologies of Laminam, the leading Italian company in the production of large size and minimum thickness ceramic slabs for architecture and interiors.
Produced in the 1000x3000mm size with 5 mm thickness, the futuristic Laminam Star Maker slabs are characterised by a geometric pattern of small pentagonal stars, a graphic structure that allows to create multiple layout simply by rotating the slabs of 90 degrees in a series of different combinations. The slabs create a sort of three-dimensional puzzle, a mosaic of small elements that can be applied both on interior and exterior surfaces, such as the modern offices complex Warsaw Spire.
