Lissone, July 20, 2017 – At the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas, Cleaf presents an installation by Calvi Brambilla which highlights some applications of its surfaces for the furniture and interior design industries through four installations that recall the color tones of "The Four Elements", the 2017 exhibition concept.
Earth is a sculpture of horizontal and vertical levels that reminds Charles and Ray Eames's "House of Cards" game to simulate the basic surfaces; the star-like structure of Air reveals the coating possibilities of complex surfaces such as interior doors; the sea waves of Water enhance the curved surface coating; the overlapping elements of Fire show the details of the shaker door.
Within Earth installation there are, in absolute preview, the faced panels of Piombo, a surface that joins the Hyper Materials collection, composed of original solutions, a synthesis of technique, materials, style and sustainability.
Piombo, thanks to the use of innovative acrylic resins applied through the Electron Beam Curing process, is an opaque, anti-fingerprint surface, soft to the touch and with a low light reflectivity. Available in nine colors both as a faced panel, edge and as a laminate, it is suitable for vertical and horizontal use.
“For us it’s important to be able to suggest to designers the areas in which our surfaces can be used to create inspiring furniture and environments for living and working.” says Alessandro Carrara of Cleaf.
“Our goal was double: to design four iconic installations with a very strong visual impact and to describe in an effective yet innovative way the possible applications of Cleaf’s surfaces." says Fabio Calvi of Calvi Brambilla.
