TECHLAM® is inspired by Burmese tradition when presenting its latest products

9 February 2015

TECHLAM® by Levantina is inspired by the colours, sounds and landscapes of Burma to present it latest products in the Ma Khin Café.

Burma is a country which conjures up images of ancient splendour, of exotic places and of a beauty frozen in time. Transporting ourselves to these places has now been made easier thanks to the fusion of an unprecedented gastronomic concept by the acclaimed chef Steve Anderson, creating a space which is unique in Spain.

Taking inspiration from the Burmese landscape, TECHLAM® by Levantina has presented its new Wood and Stone Collection with two new focal points, Wood Aspen and Steel White together with the new range, Stone Collection, a design of the same printed porcelain material which is inspired by Natural Stone, to show that technology and tradition can happily go hand in hand.

In this case the texture and design of the Wood and Steel Collection are used to decorate a space very much in tune with the Asian aesthetic of pure lines and blend with the collective image of the Burmese jungle and the evocative images of the bridge over the River Kwai.

Wood Aspen and Steel White are two materials which bring a new direction to the already established range of models in the Wood and Steel Collection. In the case of Wood Aspen, the design of this new porcelain reminds one of the light coloured woods with a texture and pure colours which are ideal for creating austere interiors while Steel White is the Company’s proposal for an exceptional product with the colour of steel and subtle hints of corrosion which give a very popular retro feel.

In parallel in a decisive move to extend the catalogue TECHLAM® is also introducing a Stone Collection, a perfect imitation of natural stone with six different models which offer rich nuances: Kalos Bianco, Agatha Bianco, Agatha Caramel, Graphite Stone, Travertino Dune and Travertino Tivoli.

The Wood, Steel and Stone collections are created with cutting-edge technology using a digital printing system which allows any image to be superimposed on the porcelain tiles with the highest resolution on the market (400dpi) and unprecedented accuracy.

The designer Laura Alandes finds inspiration in the Burmese roots.

Using TECHLAM ® in Ma Kin Café creates a space which is a perfect symbiosis of the most advanced digital printing technology on porcelain with a markedly personal project where the rich culinary tradition of South East Asia and, in particularly of Burma, is present everywhere.

With this leitmotif, Laura Mendes, the Valencian designer working in New York, came up with an interior design with pure, intimate and warm shapes in an open space where the cutting-edge materials from TECHLAM ® combine perfectly with rustic Woods, wicker and objects which transport us to Burma. Alandes was also responsible for the design of the open, stage-like show kitchen.

This results in the restaurant breathing the traditional hospitality and serenity of the Asian culture without ignoring the close attention to detail which can be seen both in the cuisine and the service.


TECHLAM® is a porcelain tile of between 3 and 5 mm in thickness, which is versatile, durable and able to provide original solutions to all kinds of construction needs both inside and outside. Its formats, weight and composition provide architects, and interiors designer with new creative options.

The versatility of TECHLAM® opens up new options for professionals in home interiors, as seen by the success this porcelain material has had in the catering sector as a new alternative for use in countertops and tables, among other uses, thanks to its resistance to direct heat which ensures that the product remains unaltered for years. TECHLAM ® also meets all the hygiene requirements for use in aseptic areas as its size considerably reduces the area of joins between tiles, where bacteria multiply easily.
