Bringing a sense of the Industrial Revolution to modern building design CSR CemintelTM adds Urban Grey to its Designer SeriesTM of pre-fabricated, cement bonded, fibrous wood particle panels. The inclusion of Urban Grey adds strength to a trending group of greys, blues, bone and green, which have been reimagined by Australasia's leading trend forecast group, Colourways, as the Industrial Evolution, one of four forecasted colour trends for 2013-2015.
Colourways' Managing Consultant, Kim Chadwick explains how Industrial Evolution allows you to journey from the established past along a path of rediscovery. "This is where we see Cemintel's Urban Grey, the raw yet soft texture, with the undertones of grey, is the ideal example of old becoming new," said Kim Chadwick.
Unique to the Australian market the Cemintel Designer Series is a modern and distinctive walling system which is ideal for any façade application. Offering unique textures and finishes the system can be used as a standalone or composite solution to produce an individual look to modern Australian homes. Urban Grey has a natural but contemporary finish and offers the raw cement look that is becoming increasingly popular in Australasian design. A lightweight panel, Urban Grey utilises the Designer Series' unique clip fix system, meaning it can be installed quicker and cheaper than concrete.
Senior Product Manager Ben Thompson recognizes that the raw cement look is becoming increasingly popular in Australian design. "We're seeing this emerging trend of large scale designs architecturally that are based on previous eras or at a minimum, combining history with future, which is where we see Urban Grey being the ideal façade product." Said Ben Thomson.
Urban Grey complements Cemintel's current Designer Series Range, consisting of six panels suitable for interior and exterior application and unique to the Australian market. Available in a variety of textures and colours with the ultra-modern i-Cube, Textured panels, traditional Slimline, classic Woodgrain and minimalist Smooth.
