Luxx Newhouse Group is making another big splash in the building materials industry with the launch of, DiDio Italian Engineering Slab coupled with a Public Launch of ACTIVE Clean Air & Anti-Bacterial Slabs. Mr Seah Chee Huang, Director of DP Architects and the lead architects for the Singapore Sports Hub project, a large-scale integrated sports, recreation and lifestyle development, graced the event as a guest of honor.
The launch was to highlight not only the beauty of these large format slabs but also to focus on this new and exciting technology called ACTIVE Clean Air & Anti-Bacterial Slab. This patented technology, ACTIVE 2.0 is the use of titanium dioxide doped with silver to purify pollutants in the air such as nitrogen dioxide (NOx) and Sulphur dioxide (SOV) which are present indoors via a photocatalytic process, transforming the pollutants into salts, harmless to the human body. It is a creative use of technology to address the growing environmental problem worldwide without compromising the beauty of the product.
DiDio Italian Engineering Slab is a new covering concept for a modern day projects, with the potential to be applied on all surfaces be it wall, floor, furniture, bathroom and even boat interiors.

WHAT IS DiDio?
It is a technical ceramic made in Italy, measuring up to 3200 x 1600 x 6 mm expressing all the potential of porcelain in a product of unrivalled performance and appearance.
This is because slabs are modeled after the most beautiful marble, onyx, stone, wood, metal and concrete slabs in the world to curate the most perfect variation for the collection. These surfaces are textured to model their respective look ranging from marble to stone inspired look and feel.
Durability with aesthetics that is equivalent if not more pleasing than the best looks out there allows designers to give free rein to their creativity with new large sizes and minimal thicknesses, making it the perfect material for all surfaces and applications.

The material only weighs a sheer 70 kg making it perfect for external wall cladding. A ventilated facade is one of the options for wall-covering and insulation system capable of attending to construction, hygrometric, static, safety and aesthetic aspects of a building.
It consists of an outer cladding, an air space several centimeters deep, a sub-structure made of aluminum anchored to the building and an insulating layer secured to the outer wall of the building. The main functions of the outer cladding are aesthetic and protective.
Main advantages of ventilated wall cladding :
- Uniform insulation of the building without thermal bridge;
- Elimination of water vapor produced inside the building with no obstacles or barriers;
- Less structural movements caused by changes in the outside temperature and to the differences between the expansions coefficients of the various materials making up a building;
- Lower conditioning costs, thanks to decreased dispersion;
