Concreto: Fabio Novembre for LEA Ceramiche

At this edition of Fuorisalone, Lea Ceramiche presents a new collection of surfaces, Concreto, designed by Fabio Novembre, with an installation in the showroom in Via Durini, Milan, created by the designer himself. Fabio Novembre’s new collection Concreto, which explores the theme of concrete with a hyper-realistic representation of cement surfaces, is an excellent example of this intense exchange. The conceptual process starts with an aesthetic and a material analysis, fully capturing the features of the material, but then going beyond these objective facts by warping and emphasizing them: the different textures and colours of cement become the backgrounds of the collection in four shades – extra light, light, medium, dark and rust, reflecting the qualities of the base material through the use of laminated porcelain stoneware technology.
