Hi-Macs, acrylic stone of the new generation

Karim Rashid for HI-MACS ® has created a collection with unique shades presented for the first time at London's 100% Design Exhibition, held in London on September 18 to 21 last year. It is a collection created for HI-MACS ® in the world, and some of these colors will be available on the European market in 2014.

Also on display are the innovative and futuristic desk Agata, designed by Italian architecture firm FRA, and the unconventional collection “Freedom of Imagination“, which shows the extreme malleability and versatility of HI-MACS ® Solid Surface material of the New generation.

It is a material designed and manufactured by LG Hausys, a world leader in the technology industry and is distributed by LG Hausys Europe with headquarters in Geneva.

In addition to its thermoplastic properties, the wide range of colors and the absence of joints in large areas, HI-MACS ® offers a wide choice of exclusive finishes. Furthermore, the processing of this material, due to the ease with which it can be manipulated and cut, is as simple as that of wood. From a hygienic point of view, HI-MACS ® does not absorb moisture and is very stain resistant. Its smooth, non-porous surface prevents the penetration of liquids.

The New Generation of Acrylic Stone offers endless possibilities for a personalized design and inspires professionals around the world. Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Rafael Moneo, Karim Rashid, David Chipperfield and many others, have carried out numerous projects with HI-MACS ®, from kitchens to bathrooms, from hotels to shopping centers, outdoor spaces to the exterior facades of buildings.
