Large-format tiles płytki Star Maker – a product of the Mac Stopa project, which received the Red Dot Best of the Best award, was developed jointly with Laminam Poland, the only distributor of Laminam quartz agglomerate in Central Europe. The first building to use these tiles was the Warsaw Spire high-rise complex in Warsaw.
“Despite the fact that I really appreciate the Red Dot Awards, while working on tiles, I did not think about this award,” says Stopa. “I decided to create a product that I, as an architect, needed for a particular interior. Italian large-format Laminam tiles turned out to be a grateful material that opened up space for my imagination. The final product was universal. It can be used as decoration for walls, floors, cladding or kitchen countertops, as well as material for the manufacture of furniture. ”
