NEBULA is an application method devised by inMateria, transcending the limitations of the manual polished plaster technique. An absolute novelty for 2021, NEBULA can be used to cover curvy and irregular surfaces with a cloud of concrete or clay, for a decidedly striking textured effect even on specially processed objects.
BEYOND THE LIMITS
NEBULA stems from the desire to overcome the limits of non-linear surfaces by providing a highly industrialised solution in terms of methods and processes. Starting from our laboratory’s field surveys and experimentation, we conducted tests using a special machine capable of vaporising the concrete or clay mixes on various supports, curved or otherwise. The vaporisation phase is followed by a manual sanding phase enhancing the craftsmanship quality of the finished product: the base of a table, a faceted decorative item, a particularly complex shape.
FOR CURVED SURFACES
The end result is a smooth textured effect that translates into a coarseness that is barely perceptible to the touch, or into a lacquered finish that leaves the support completely smooth. The surface appears aesthetically uniform since it is free of trowel marks, and is finished with a dedicated range of colours.
