The Cleaf 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 – more than 60 textures and 600 decorative papers – which allows the creation of multiple stylistic combinations for different contexts.
The latest textures are Bruciato and Cheope.
Shou Sugi Ban is the ancient Japanese technique of burning wood to preserve it over time. Besides being a conservative and eco-sustainable practice it gives an aesthetically pleasing “burnt wood” effect. The Bruciato texture is the representation of this effect on an ash essence. It’s available as faced panel, laminate and ABS edge.
Cheope is 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. It’s available as faced panel and laminate.
Cleaf took part in the two Italian editions of Architect@Work in Turin (October 23-24) and Milan (November 13-14).
The format dedicated to architecture and interior design solutions has been the perfect gathering to showcase Cheope, a geometric texture inspired by the perfect lines of pyramids seen from a zenithal point of view.

At Sicam fair in Pordenone, the annual trade show for materials and components for furniture manufacturing, Cleaf introduces the Solid Colours collection and the new synchronized version of the Bruciato texture.
The stand designed by Bestetti Associati highlight the features of the collection through two freestanding metal frame displays that suggest possible applications and two wall displays that point out the tactile and visual sensations of the three coordinated product types: faced panel, laminate and edge.
CLEAF and EGGER have signed a sales agreement for the distribution of 27 CLEAF products – faced panels, laminates and ABS edges – in six countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. The “CLEAF presented by EGGER” range will become available for EGGER’s customers in the defined markets together with the launch of the EGGER Decorative Collection from February 2020.
The flexibility of the internal production model of Cleaf allows for continuous experimentation transferring striking tactile and visual sensations to coating surfaces.
An increasing number of textures that create an advanced system of products, confirmed by the architects and companies that choose it to build inspirational spaces for living and working.
The latest textures are Geta, Paglia e Poro Noce.
Paulownia wood is used for the production of okobo, the traditional Japanese sandals worn by maiko, the apprentice geisha. They are made with a single block of carved wood and they have a very high heel dig at the front of the foot.
The Okobo texture has an attractive appearance due to the regularity of the fiber. It’s available as faced panel, laminate and ABS edge.
The Paglia texture presents an endless series of parallel vertical lines that give the surface a vibrant effect. Combined with solid color decorative papers it enhances the geometric pattern and with the wood essences it blends the three-dimensional effect. It’s available as faced panel and ABS edge.
The Poro Noce texture reproduces the wood of walnut, a tree considered a symbol of fertility, whose ancient presence in Campania is witnessed by the discovery in the excavations of Pompei of carbonized trees. The pores are spread in a diffuse way and are easily recognizable to the naked eye. It’s available as faced panel and ABS edge.
At the Interzum fair in Cologne Cleaf showcases C-HOUSE, the research on its innovative surfaces and their applications launched during the Milan Design Week 2019.
The stand designed by Bestetti Associati highlights 12 textures on 12 out of scale backlit walls to emphasize the multiple applications, and 4 bifacial displays with possible combinations.
A collection of faced panels, laminates and ABS edges to coat furniture and interiors: vertical and horizontal planes or curved support.
Protagonist of the installation is the new collection of solid colour decorative papers designed by Studio MILO and composed of 90 newly created colours in three families – Neutral, Trendy, Evergreen – that reflect three different moods.
The novelty is Poro Noce, a texture that reproduces the wood of walnut, a tree considered a symbol of fertility, whose ancient presence in Campania is witnessed by the discovery in the excavations of Pompei of carbonized trees. The pores are spread in a diffuse way and are easily recognizable to the naked eye. It’s available as faced panel and ABS edge.
On show also Mosaico, awarded with the l’Interzum award: intelligent material & design 2019. The texture is a composition of square tiles whose irregular appearance is given by different levels of depth and widht.
For its first participation at Salone del Mobile.Milano Cleaf presents C-HOUSE, the research on its innovative surfaces and their applications.
C-HOUSE is developed in the project of its stand inside S.Project and CCube corporate showroom in Lissone.
The stand at Salone del Mobile.Milano designed by Bestetti Associati showcase the multiple applications of the surfaces for furniture and interiors: faced panels, laminates and ABS edges.
The CCube installation designed by Studio MILO divides the collection into three home environments – Welcome, Living, Night – and two colour/style variants – the sober Classic, and the more daring Contemporary.
