Lamitak’s Tobias Steel and Milnerton laminates encapsulate the weathered beauty of architecture from Europe.

Tobias Steel combines the flawlessness of a factory finish with the random beauty of the natural weathering process. Inspired by the tonal composition of aged metal doors found in Cologne’s stunning cathedrals, this intricate steel design features a mesmerising corrosion pattern with seemingly infinite colouration effects.
A world of detail compellingly emerges as you peer into the surface, making this a design that will command attention whether viewed up close or from afar.
The deep grooves of weathered timber, the multiple strokes of paintbrushes, and the aggregation of planks of wood – add these together and you get Milnerton, a linear design that embraces the aesthetic of repainting and reuse.
The idea for this timber design grew from the exploration of the colourful Burano Island near Venice, where layer upon layer of paint has been applied to a tight grid of row houses. Completely matte and punctuated by the marks of wear and tear, Milnerton offers a timeworn look with immense graphic potential.
