Cotto d’Este USA’s Cement Project is a versatile collection in which the typically “urban” nature of cement is expressed in a new way — in vast and architectural contexts. Surfaces and colors echo cement effects with aesthetic and sensory fidelity.
The series uses a combination of three tones, ranging from light gray (Colour-10) to intermediate gray (Colour-20) and dark gray (Colour-30), featured on three different surfaces — Work, Cem and Land — which are each available in different thicknesses and sizes.
The Cem and Land surfaces reproduce cement in its purer, compact, urban style. Cem is available in Kerlite 5.5mm plus, while Land comes in a 14 mm thickness, a distinctive Cotto d’Este offering. The Work surface replicates the effect of board-formed concrete with a precision never seen before on large, thin ceramic slabs. Marked with the indelible impressions and character of the wood planks that formed it, the Work surface is available in Kerlite 5.5mm plus. Combining the contrasting characteristics of concrete and the lightness and maneuverability of large, ultra-slim slabs, Kerlite guarantees a unique, flexible and resilient product, distinguished by its versatility and convenience of use. Thin and lightweight, with sizes up to 100 x 300 cm, the Kerlite slabs are reinforced with fiberglass and suit the design challenges of contemporary architecture. In addition to the Kerlite version, Work is also available in a 20 mm thickness, perfect for extending the beauty of Work to the outdoors.
