Cement Project is a system of surfaces and colours that echoes cement effects with aesthetic and sensory fidelity, including the traditional wooden slatted form. The collection conceptually mirrors the great, brutalist twentieth century style of architecture, and takes on that rigor and strong expressive power, while enabling a wide variety of interpretation.
The project uses a combination of three tones, ranging from light grey (Colour-10), to intermediate grey (Colour-20) to dark grey (Colour-30), featured on three different surfaces: Work, Cem and Land, each available in different thicknesses and sizes.
The Cem and Land surfaces reproduce cement in its purer, compact, urban style. Cem is available in Kerlite plus 5.5mm, while Land comes in a 14mm thickness, a distinctive Cotto d'Este size. The company is unique in supplying high thickness materials where the firing process is over twice as long as for the standard 10 mm porcelain stoneware and done at higher temperatures, achieving maximum strength and durability.
