The Cimento collection gives life to a new poetry of living

0

CEMENTO debuted this year Mobile fair with new collaborations and the artistic direction of Aldo Parisotto P+F Architetti. It was an architectural staging of volumes and geometries perfectly complementary to the work presented. The collaborations with designers and architects presented in the Cement Collection were all created with the compound, which comprises over 90% mineral aggregate mixed with a cement binder. With the collection inspired by Venice, new elements have been added to create fresh colors true to the city.

Patricia Urquiola played an important role, creating several design pieces, as well as the stand itself. His first design collaboration with the brand resulted in the Frari tables and coffee tables, the Zattere stools and the Fondamenta side tables. Urquiola’s Erasmo vases feature a great play of color and a juxtaposition of smooth and rough surfaces. And there’s also the Canal Grande capsule collection of paintings and mirrors. Inspired by Venetian architecture, each piece features polychrome inlays. This is the first time that CIMENTO has added fragments, such as glass and quartz, to its paste. Another alternative uses their own natural debris recovered from the production area.
