The first edition of the Shaping Surfaces competition by Cleaf ended with the victory of the Banema Studio concept store by Campos Costa Arquitetos in Lisbon.
A sophisticated and welcoming space to discover new objects and a laboratory for architects, interior designers, design students, defined by a monumental installation made of Yosemite UB44 Catinaccio.
The second edition aims to continue the research path among the interior design projects created with the use of Cleaf surfaces.
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)
Each of the 29 textures that make up the Espresso 2022 Collection is the result of the continuous exchange of ideas with furniture companies, architects and designers.
29 research areas on the material that have given rise to 29 tactile effects declined on three coordinated products – faced panel, laminate and edge – to highlight the ability of Cleaf’s surfaces to interpret the needs of contemporary furniture and the most stimulating environments.
One of the latest born is Cheope, a geometric texture inspired by the perfect lines of pyramids seen from a zenithal point of view. The shape is interpreted in its three-dimensionality, in order to create plays of light and shadow on furniture and walls.
The A perfect match video describes through a contemporary language the perfect combination of Cleaf’s three product types: faced panel, laminate, edge.
All three are essential to create inspiring furniture and interiors.
The new Lacca texture reproduces the effect of lacquering, intended as the painting that uses lacquer, a colored covering paint that hides the grain of the wood.
The matt look makes it extremely elegant and ideal in combination with the decorative papers of the Solid Colour Collection, developed in collaboration with Studio MILO and consisting of 90 colours.
It’s available as faced panel, laminate and edge.
Throughout the 2021 Cleaf will pay tribute to retail with Retail Spaces, an area severely affected by the pandemic.
Sales places, of course, but also places for people meeting and interaction.
The investigation, developed through installations and digital activities, will focus on the leading sectors of Made in Italy, the so-called 3F – fashion, food, furniture – and future, to highlight ideas for tomorrow’s retail.
