Orea AG

Exclusive designer kitchen furniture from Switzerland, refined with LASA VENATO®

Lasa Marmo supplies the surface cladding material for high-quality and individually designed kitchen furniture to the designer kitchen manufacturer Orea AG, based in Zurich (Switzerland). For the designers, the Lasa marble, refined by the Lasa (Laas) marble industry, fulfils special criteria as the "purest marble in Europe". In particular our LASA marble inspires due to its clarity. In the "Orea +" series, the designers emphasize the purity of this "white gold". The rough, hand-picked material creates individual and unique kitchen furniture by virtue of the special design style.

The brand-name company, which has received several designer awards for its kitchen and interior design products, relies exclusively on natural materials in the manufacture of its unique pieces of furniture. Elaborate, exclusive features are a special trademark of Orea, along with the fusion of kitchen and living room. The young brand, whose name means "beautiful" in Greek, stands for aesthetic, individual kitchens and living furniture for the modern interpretation of a kitchen - for a comprehensive room concept in which the areas of cooking, eating and living merge with each other. With this contemporary approach, company owner Ueli Jost, who handed over the management of the company to David Spielhofer in 2016, takes account of the now omnipresent trend to integrate the kitchen more and more into the living space. The forms of the exclusive kitchen furniture in particular are clear, pure and unadulterated.

As the exclusive partner for the "Orea +" series, Lasa Marmo supplies LASA VENATO® marble for the production of kitchen monoliths and a Lasa marble kitchen worktop. How does a Swiss kitchen manufacturer come up with the idea of marble? In particular: Lasa Marble? "We want to ‘touch’. We focus on real and sustainable materials. We are fascinated by the idea that the kitchen is made from marble that is a million years old and comes from a national park in South Tyrol, which is distinguished by its quality and aesthetics. And finally, in the form of our kitchen, which takes its place in your home. We are enthusiastic about this and therefore Lasa Marble is always the right choice", quotes David Spielhofer, CEO of Orea.
The refined material is used to cover all surfaces of the exclusive designer kitchen furniture. The surfaces of the processed Lasa marble are supplied in C 60 grit and give the material a very special, exquisite and sophisticated character due to the coarse grinding as well as the clearly perceptible grinding marks and the rough, restrained stone colour.
