Cemento non Cemento

Cemento non Cemento

What is it

CEMENTO NON CEMENTO is an innovative and refined Made in Italy material that exceeds the use of cement in the most advanced interior design projects. Concrete and resins free, it is composed of natural components and fibers, totally biocompatible and emission-free. Stability, reliability, ease to use and beauty are the properties that make CEMENTO NON CEMENTO one of the most interesting materials for designers. It’s made in panels, CONCLAD® and CONCREO®, two products aesthetically very alike but different in performance, for applications sophisticated and always reliable.

Panels are made of homogeneous solid mass very similar to the cast concrete and they are worked with extreme ease: cut, glued, milled, joined and worked with the same techniques, machinery and tools and also the same hardware used for wood.
Moreover, CEMENTO NON CEMENTO is produced in CONCOVER®, original treatment applicable to any materials and objects of any shape and size.

“… è un materiale che sa emozionare per la sua naturale bellezza, ed è sorprendente la semplicità con cui si lavora.”

MICHELE VANNELLI – INVENTORE E CO-FONDATORE

“…
it is a material that knows how to excite for its natural beauty, and the simplicity with which one works is surprising.”

MICHELE VANNELLI – INVENTOR AND CO-FOUNDER

Its Story

The first concept of CEMENTO NON CEMENTO was introduced to the community of Interior Design at the Triennale in Milan during Design Week 2014, matching the taste and interest of the most qualified Architects and Interior designers around the world, giving encouragement to its creators to proceed in research and development.
After a year, in 2015, it was born the first CNC product, called Concreo. Firstly introduced on the Italian market and subsequently available also for international operators, it was validated since the beginning by top professionals and prestigious institutions including the Centre George Pompidou of Paris and the Assosiacion of Architects in Florence, who have been among the first adopting Concreo in their own representative spaces.
The following year, in May 2016, the second concrete product, Conclad, was introduced to the operators, as a more accessible product where the high level of Concreo was over-sized in terms of compactness and stain resistance.
Finally in 2018 the product range has been completed by Concover, a process which allows to apply a CEMENTO NON CEMENTO coating on every single surface, of any material and shape.
Despite the short history, CEMENTO NON CEMENTO already boasts collaborations with top-level architectural firms on projects of international importance, with brands such as Calvin Klein, Pal Zileri, Céline by Luis Vuitton and Marcolin, Max&Co, Under Armour, L’Occitante, just to illustrate some names in the trade, as well as hotels, restaurants and prestigious private houses. Shared point in each project: the full customer satisfaction, that the product is highly reliable and fully responds to the features and expectations promised.

Sustainability

Concreo and Conclad are ecological, biocompatible, without asbestos, formaldehyde or any other dangerous substance, fire-resistant and stain-resistant. These results are achieved using production techniques and compounds that scrupulously respect all the highest standards of Environmental Impact Assessment deposited for each production site and for a global sustainability difficult to compare to companies of the same size or in similar products.
No use of cement or any of its derivatives or similar resins, absence of CO2 emissions in the environment and atmosphere, no nano-technologies used paying attention to the protection of the environment and the health of the worker. The data resulting from the test “Volatile organic compounds from construction and finishing products”, according to UNI EN ISO 16000-9:2006 + ISO 16000-6:2011, objectively prove the high quality levels achieved, placing CEMENTO NON CEMENTO among the most sustainable materials in the market.
