The elegant Hyle restaurant chooses Lapitec in Nero Assoluto.

Project Name: Hyle Restaurant

Location: Cosenza, Italy

Material: Nero Assoluto, Lux

Application: Kitchen top and restaurant forniture

Architect / Designer: Arrighi design


From food plating, to service areas and furnishings: Lapitec sintered stone is the ideal material for haute cuisine. The new temple devoted to the cuisine of chef Antonio Biafora in San Giovanni in Fiore, in the province of Cosenza in Calabria, reflects the surrounding territory through studied use of materials. The warmth of the wooden flooring and furniture marries with the detailing on the black Lapitec of the walls and the countertop of the pass which opens onto the dining room, as well as the large central counter.

Quality, technology, versatility

 Lapitec does not absorb liquids, does not stain, and is ideal for contact with food, due to its composition and the absence of surface porosity. In addition, it does not scratch or scrape, can withstand high temperatures and is easy to clean.  Specific processing of the sintered stone, by FDC Fuda Division Contract srl, has allowed the seamless integration of a built-in heating coil in the countertop, which keeps dishes at the correct temperature during the phases of plating up -  when the chef composes the architecture of each plate in front of the clients.

The large counter set among the round tables also features Lapitec tops in the Nero Assoluto tone with a polished finish on two levels, as does the shelf supporting the sink in the service area.

Repeated across different zones, the Lapitec surfaces create a spatial rhythm within Hyle restaurant, the new gastronomic destination in Calabria officially inaugurated by the young chef on 10 January 2020.
