Injecting textures and colours into three-dimensional sculptural forms, the new Cimento Collection shows the lighter side of concrete
The Cimento collection, born under the art direction of Aldo Parisotto, utilises Cimento, an exclusive registered compound which uses over 90% mineral aggregates mixed with a cement binder.
Featuring an array of striking tables, storage systems perfect for home offices, as well as stools and benches, the new collection is characterised by strong visual elements. Each piece fits perfectly within both contemporary environments as well as the most classic spaces.
Accademia designed by Studio 63
Designed by Studio 63, Accademia storage systems stand out for their aesthetic and formal balance which feature a combination of two contrasting materials, Cimento and wood.
The Burano rocking chair by Defne Koz & Marco Susani reinterprets the traditional rocking chair without forgetting comfort or ergonomics, while the Murano coffee table designed by Omri Revesz, takes inspiration from the iconic shapes of Murano glass goblets.

Elsewhere, there is also the Vignole coffee table collection by Parisotto+Formenton, which consists of four elements that can be used in multiple combinations and styles, as well as Torcello, designed by Defne Koze & Marco Susani.
The latter is inspired by the shape of concrete benches and effortlessly contrasts massive proportions with a sense of lightness in its construction.

The myriad of tones enhance the monolithic character of the collection which draws on the natural colours found in places such as the Venetian lagoon, the Adriatic sea and the spice route. Each piece reinforces the countless possibilities of concrete in a dynamic and effortless way.
