With Concreto, design by Fabio Novembre, Lea Ceramiche has developed a full ceramic collection, divided into three thicknesses, with multiple finishes and multiple formats. An aesthetic project that shapes the character of every environment: more intimate and private spaces, work or formal environments, the outdoor living room and the kitchen. Plain colours, which can be harmoniously combined, and decoration are the coordinates on which minimalism and design converge.
In search of a more intimate relationship with the material, Zoom acts as a powerful microscope: it observes the structure of concrete and brings traces of the presence of water to the surface. The Zoom decoration explores the organic nature of concrete to discover unpredictable natural geometries, creating patterned carpets and a new take on traditional cement tiles.
