The cover consists of 3mm ceramics (chemical resistant, reduced
wear-and -tear, resistance to bending, frost, fireproof, hygienic,
The bearing structure consists of artificial foam resin, volume
gains 60% in weight thanks to this cellular build.
The shape of the object was achieved by assembling the ceramics
and the resin (reinforced by carbon fiber) in a single mould.
