Cleaf presents Surfaces, a video describing the variety and innovation of its surfaces’ collection for furniture and interiors. Multiple tactile and visual sensations resulting from an intense research that begins from inspirations of natural and urban environments and colours. The story ends with some product combinations that gave birth to inspiring furniture and spaces for living and working. A great attention to details typical of a craftsman applied to a state of the art industrial process, made Cleaf an excellent interpreter of contemporary industrial design.
Shaping Surfaces is a competition that calls architects and interior designers to submit their interior design projects with the use of Cleaf surfaces.
Every month each participant can submit one project – uploading a short description and five images – for a chance to win the Shaping Surfaces Monthly Award selected by a jury of professionals from Cleaf.
The jury will take into consideration both the innovation of the interior project and the best use of Cleaf surfaces.
The monthly awarded project will be highlighted in a dedicated newsletter to send to selected furniture producers, architects and interior designers; it will be published on the Cleaf’s Instagram channel and it will be uploaded on the Winners’ section of Shaping Surfaces website.
On April 2021 during Salone del Mobile.Milano the jury, supported by a small group of journalists and design enthusiasts, will assign the Shaping Surfaces Annual Award selecting one project among the monthly winners.
The architect/interior designer in charge of the winning project will be appointed by Cleaf to develop, after a dedicated brief, an installation or a research project worth 10.000 euro, as well as he/she will be invited to spend a weekend discovering a place of art and nature in Italy.
The aim of Cleaf with the competition Shaping Surfaces is to improve the creativity of architects and interior designers through the use of our surfaces and to create a debate around interior spaces. (Roberto Caspani)
A proper cleaning of surfaces* is the most effective practice to prevent the proliferation of bacteria that can be dangerous to health.
Having antibacterial surfaces makes easier to contrast these unpleasant outbreaks.
The Cleaf collection of faced panels and laminates can provide an antibacterial treatment which, thanks to a microbiologically tested technology according to ISO 22196:2011, reduces its bacterial load by up to 99,9% within 24 hours. The silver ions incorporated in the decorative layer attract bacteria by blocking their cell reproduction.
Melamine surfaces are the most resistant among those used in the furniture field.
For cleaning use detergent for domestic use. It is recommended to avoid the use of spray products directly on the surface that can leave marks. It is better to apply the detergent on a soft damp cloth, clean the surfaces and then rinse it. Avoid abrasive products, bleach or highly chlorinated substances, strong acids and bases.
The Cleaf presented by Egger collection highlights the innovative aesthetic and tactile research on surfaces.
It recalls the Made in Italy ability to interpret the needs of contemporary furniture and the most inspiring environments, thanks to the continuous exchange of ideas with architects and industrial designers.
A complete and coordinated collection – 27 products, developed in 10 textures, available as faced panel, laminate and ABS edge – which allows the creation of multiple stylistic combinations for different contexts.
Four wood textures – pine, fir, elm, exotic – developed together with the decorative papers to obtain synchronized products that offer a perfect adherence to reality.
One synchronized sandstone which features reliefs of medium sized granules.
One fabric and one leather perfectly combinable with the wood essences to enhance the interior of the furniture.
One metal effect with 45-degree angle engraving.
Two geometric textures that accentuate the three-dimensionality through a play of light and shadows.
For its first participation at Euroshop, the world’s largest retail trade fair, Cleaf presents THE ITALIAN RETAIL LANDSCAPE, an investigation into the retail environments of the Made in Italy’s 3F: Fashion, Food, Furniture. The fourth F is Future, a glimpse of tomorrow’s retail.
In the middle of the stand designed by Bestetti Associati, four freestanding metal frame displays highlight the innovative Cleaf surfaces, which suggest possible applications for the four retail environments.
Oak effect surfaces in combination with stone effect for the Fashion, multicolor in the various solid colours for the Food, walnut effect matched with fabric effect for the Furniture, while for the Future metallic surfaces combined with the burnt effect wood.
On the long side the 27 products that compose the Cleaf presented by Egger collection – available from February 2020 for Egger’s dealers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia – are declined in faced panels of multiple heights to highlight the innovative aesthetic and tactile research on surfaces.
The Espresso is a stock service for Cleaf official dealers.
A selection of products from the collection always available that can be ordered in bundles or single products, exclusively online.
The Espresso 2022 collection highlights the innovative aesthetic and tactile research on surfaces.
A complete and coordinated collection – 131 products, developed in 29 textures, available as faced panel, laminate and edge – which allows the creation of multiple stylistic combinations for different contexts.
A collection that certifies the Made in Italy ability to interpret the needs of contemporary furniture and the most inspiring environments, thanks to the continuous exchange of ideas with architects and industrial designers.
