Ceppo Nuovo – native to Italy’s capital of fashion
Sun in zenith, the aroma of coffee wafting through the air, atmosphere teeming with art, fashion and design. Full of class and elegance, but not without energy and temperament. Echoes of history are felt everywhere, a history that becomes the captivating backdrop for modernity. Full of contrasts, and because of it coherent, chill at times, but bathed in the warm southern rays – this Italian capital of beauty – Milan manages to amaze and awe at every step. It was this beauty that inspired the creation of the Ceppo Nuovo – a collection that meticulously reflects the beauty of Italian bedrock. Four stunning colors, an assortment of formats, one excellence – today, you too can feel like an artist. Design, create, strut on it as if you were on a catwalk and invite into your home a touch of the Milan style. Non c’e di che!
The Ceppo Nuovo collection is available in three colors: silver, graphite and black, several formats and two surface finishes: polished and matt. Among the formats – 6 mm thick slabs measuring 120 x 180 cm.
– For production, we used technology that is characterized by greater depth. The stones, which are part of the graphic design, give the impression of being deeply sunken under a sheet of glass. The gray shades have pleasant, warm tones that work in any interior and with any kind of lighting. We used color enhancing technology to create the matt surface, the effects of which are these unusually exquisite tiles, the originality of which was recognized by the competition’s jury – comments Sebastian Stanek, Innovation and Technology Director at Cerrad.
– We have started their distribution. The latest collections will soon be available at most of our distributors all over Poland – says Tomasz Glegoła, Marketing Director at Cerrad, and adds that the joint project with the La Mania Home brand offers many new opportunities. This is Cerrad’s first such venture and the manufacturer is planning many interesting happenings that will accompany the launching of the new product line.
