CEMENTINO pays homage to the historic charm of floors adorned with Portland cement tiles, renowned icons of late 19th-century Italian and European housing, especially in modest-income households. These tiles are not merely utilitarian; they carry a rich legacy of classic design.
The intricate three-dimensional pattern of CEMENTINO is inspired by the truncated octahedron figure, characterized by six square sides and eight hexagonal sides. When this design is replicated throughout a space, it creates an enchanting mosaic with variously shaded areas. This pattern imparts a sense of bygone elegance to any home, evoking a nostalgia for the past.
Despite its machine-made construction, CEMENTINO exudes an artisanal quality. Its structure and fleece are crafted from synthetic fibers, mainly polyester and polypropylene, which are treated using a special ultra-resistant process. This process results in a "hand-made" effect, combining durability with the charm of handmade craftsmanship.
With CEMENTINO, you can capture the enduring allure of Portland cement tiles and infuse your living space with a touch of classic design, reimagined for contemporary times.
