The Ossido line stems from a wager against time, in an attempt to crystallise a material at a specific point in its life and have it stay that way forever. Specifically, it entails the reproduction of a oxidation process on slabs of copper and metal, which generates a very strong and rich colour, yet which inevitably disappears as the oxidation process progresses.
The challenge faced by Laminam was in fact to capture the moment of maximum splendour of the colour onto the surfaces, simulating the effects of atmospheric agents and also developing certain colour variants which are particularly bold, such as verderame (verdigris). It is a line where the fundamental role is played by light, which always generates new reflections and new variations in colour.
The particular aesthetics of Ossido make it especially suitable for use in interior furnishings and items of interior décor. With the other two variants, Ossido nero (black) and bruno (brown), contrasts packed with personality and textured structure can be generated. A genuine combination of art and technology.
A different texture for bold solutions
All the surfaces in the Ossido series are distinguished by the technical excellence of Laminam; they are resistant to impact, stains and scratches.
The versatility of ceramic means the surfaces retain their specifications even when they are exposed to heat, frost and UV rays, with an average water absorption of 0.1%.
Ossido is a totally natural product that is entirely food-safe because it does not release elements in a solution (even in the event of a fire) and does not allow mould and mildew to form.
