Slate Lab offers natural, lightweight and flexible stones, made of a genuine thin layer of real stone lying on glass fiber or cotton in order to give the final product extreme elasticity and resistance. The material, suitable for any kind of surface, thanks to its lightness and flexibility, is an ideal solution for: internal coverings; external facades; pillars; floorings; ceilings; bathroom, kitchen and fireplace tiles; bar counter and kitchen worktops; furniture, doors and furnishings in general. Moreover, it is surely the most suitable material for making high quality finishings for the naval architecture, aeronautic and automotive sectors, where common stone couldn’t be applied because of its excessive weight.

Here some photos about lightweight and flexible stones:
We created the “Slate Lab” corner where you can see all the flexible surfaces in large format, available both for designers and architecture firms, but also for our customers.
Thanks to the flexibility, thickness and reduced weight of light stone or recomposed types Corten, Concrete, Carbone, Travertino, we can cover many types of surfaces!
When the need is to cover a shower box quickly and with thin thicknesses, perhaps leaving the aesthetics of the rest of the bathroom unaltered, Pietra leggera is the ideal solution. Moreover, thanks to the flexibility of the Stone sheets, it is possible to cut, lay and move the rolls in very small spaces that are not easy for the classic large tiles.
We advise you to stop by Cocoloco, if you have not yet done so: the quality of the service, the hospitality of the staff and, last but not least, the excellence of the cuisine, will pamper you throughout your stay.
We are proud to have contributed to the success of the restyling of the indoor and outdoor premises: today we focus on two particular products that we used to coat the external surfaces. These are two types of natural surfaces with very different technical characteristics
The Pietra Leggera, with which we have covered the central platform of the outside: thanks to its large size, flexibility and lightness has created a natural and elegant effect at the same time. An effect that would not have been possible with other surfaces, ensuring ease of cleaning and durability.
La Pietra Compattata, with which we have covered the external corsets and all the cabins: paths and points that are generally left to pure cement or unsuitable stoneware, but the Compounded Stone, with its thickness and its technical characteristics has created an aesthetic pair / practical not repeatable with other surfaces. Of course, without forgetting the comfort for walking under the hottest hours, dissipating heat well, and the anti-slip without having to resort to annoying and not practical relief on the surface.
We thank the owner and the designer Andrea Plazzi of Interni Furniture solutions that have given us their trust in our proposals.
Good job and good summer guys!
Thursday, May 10th, we were present at the course that introduced new applicators in the application technique of light and flexible surface in quartz powders: our Slate Lab Light Stone.
The Light Stone, thanks to the dimensions of about 120×270 cm, to flexibility, lightness and easy application has already obtained the consent of many application sectors: from construction to furniture, from boating to window frames … and more.
Thanks to our applicators who attended the meeting!
For those who have not been able to participate and for those who are interested in discovering the Pietra Pietra, please contact us!!
On Saturday 17 March, the Coco Loco of Marina di Ravenna inaugurated the summer season: the inauguration, despite the weather, was a great success and the guests present appreciated the restyling that was performed.
The renewal of the Coco Loco, thanks to the creativity of Andrea Plazzi of Interni Soluzioni d’Arredo, has affected the interior and exterior of the restaurant: Meinardi is proud to have contributed to this success with the materials destined for renovated surfaces such as the tops of the counters, the internal flooring and the outdoor flooring.
Here are some photos taken during the event: for more information or images, register on our website and visit the links in the article.
The family of thin-gauge stones lends itself to quickly and easily decorate different surfaces in interiors and exteriors. Both in the new building and in the renovation, the thin thickness makes it possible to use this precious material with reduced costs and application times. An example is the headquarters of Assicurazioni Tre Erre in Carmignano di Brenta (PD) in which several interior plasterboard walls have been clad with the ultrathin Indian stone Rain Forest Green.
More often they ask us how our light stone behaves in corner or curve, if the resistance of the surface is suitable and if the surface is stain-resistant or not.
A difference of other materials, the light stone may cover completely corners, curves, corners … with an incredible simplicity of installation: box covered shower, walls, furniture, objects .. etc. ecc. you can keep a surface continuity.
The resistance and the cleanability with zero absorption increase and get with post post-installation that accompany our supplies according to the field of use.
Take for example the latest works performed in which curvilinear corners and edges .. we have not spared.. and also a stressed top surface
The following example is the creation of a bathroom furniture at Officine Bernardi where, on a wooden support, we laid the light stone, without joints and interruptions.
While in the images, at our point of sale in San Marino (Pipa srl), an original work top has been renewed. the anti-stain treatment was applied, the normal oil-repellent was used to leave the surface completely unaltered. The result? Perfect.
Even more, during the “Salone del mobile” in Milan this year at Luxury Living stand, we have played the light stone as flooring and, in addition to the week of people who have walked on the surface, a Bentley was parked in plain sight!
Our exhibition experience at Matrioška (Castel Sismondo – Rimini)has just ended: together with Officine Bernardi. Surely an event and a new stimulating collaboration that has given excellent results.
We wish to thank all those who, reading our invitation, have visited us and have known Lorenzo Bernardi and his art.
Below are some pictures of the furniture covered with our light stone. A short video is also visible on the Slate Lab page.
We are thrilled to have contributed to the realization that Officine Bernardi, Lorenzo Bernardi itself, designed and built for the “Ride for Life” event that involves many motorcycle enthusiasts and that collecting funds, such as e-Bay auction sales of ad hoc products for the event, helps research for spinal cord injuries.
This year the event in Ferrara was also able to count on the donation of a furniture made by Lorenzo Bernardi who chose our light stone to finish a part of it: we want to thank him officially both for the trust and for this work: unfortunately spinal injuries do not only involve road accidents, but also other accidents such as those at working, and research must be supported.
At this point, let us see the pictures .. and.. remember.. you can participate in the auction on e-Bay !!
and…. it could not be missed the great Lorenzo.. during the work in progress…
Villa Mozart, Bolzano, project of the “bluearch” study in Bolzano, was coated externally with our 2mm thick quartzite. An example of direct laying on coating .. the pictures speak for themselves !!
Villa Mozart has won the prestigious CasaClima 2017 award..
Slate Lab has included alongside the lines of Sandstone and Quartzite, a new surface appearance always thin: Corten effect with two aesthetic, flex and rumble.
Available in size100x300 cm size, the surface with Corten effect is gaining consensus for the color fidelity, for the soft touch surface, and for the laying practicality: applicable for both interior and exterior, our invitation is to come to see and touch!
Corten Flex and Corten Rumble can be seen at our showroom or at our authorized dealers: for more information, contact us!
Slate lab has partnered the DI.BI. group company , Marche region-based company that manufactures security doors and security systems for windows: at Made Expo, which is held these days in Milan, you can see the White Carrara (one of the many available surfaces) applied to an item of DI.BI. group.
The light stone lends itself to applications in both the construction industry both in the furnishing and contract sector: many are the strengths to choose the stone lighter solution with thin!
Contact us for a presentation of a wide range of surfaces!
You would like to place the stone as a finishing.. but cause thickness, weight and cost you will have to give up.. With Slate Lab, stone light, you can realize your project: slate, quartzite, sandstone .. in thickness of only 2 mm !!!
