HI-MACS® in a new version of Artika from Pedini at IMM 2017
Curved lines without handles, integrated sinks and cooktop, and
a breakfast bar: HI-MACS®, the new-generation solid surface
produced by LG Hausys, is a central element in the design of the
latest version of the Pedini Artika kitchen, to be launched at IMM
The Artika concept marries simplicity with efficiency: a
made-to-measure ergonomic cooking/living environment, with stable
and reassuring, yet graceful, shapes.
It has given rise to a slender-bodied solution, with enveloping
and familiar forms, defined not only by the countertop itself, but
also by the drawers and doors in the units that blend into the
profile, as though sculpted by the action of wind or water.
The Artika layout is resolutely urban, and it provides readily
understood coordinated spaces in a universal language which are

the ample peninsulas are no longer simple supporting surfaces, but

Comprising different percentages of minerals, acrylics and
natural pigments, it is a material of the very highest quality and
is perfect for contact with food since its surface is non-porous,
preventing the build-up of dirt and bacteria. Hygienic and simple
to clean, HI-MACS® is highly resistant to scratches, stains,
moisture and fire, and it is thus widely used in both indoor and
outdoor furniture and fittings, in architecture for facades and
inner surfaces, and in health settings.HI-MACS® is a
state-of-the-art finish that combines extreme practicality with a
flexible outer appearance readily adapted to the imagination of
those who employ it. Available in a huge range of colours, both
smooth and textured, HI-MACS® is warm and silky to the touch.
