Concreto by Fabio Novembre, the new collection of surfaces by Lea Ceramiche


“We started working together with Lea Ceramiche many years ago and this has brought about a relationship of mutual respect and esteem. It was inevitable that it would have led to something more… Concreto. We have worked side by side with their research team to reap the best of this reciprocal appreciation. We created a broad collection that plays effectively with the shiny and matt contrast, in which the tone-on-tone decorations are never too loud. The inspiration for this collection is water which is an essential component of what we call cement. The way water naturally and organically reacts with cement turned into the decorative pattern that I proposed to Lea Ceramiche, and it turned out to be the perfect team to work with”
