Cersaie 2017, Ceramiche Refin presents Kasai

Written by Redazione |

23 June 2017

Cersaie 2017 is coming up, and the first highlights are starting to arrive. One of these highlights is the presentation of the new Ceramiche Refin collection: it is called Kasai and it is inspired by Yakisugi, the traditional Japanese method of protecting and conserving cedar wood by burning it

Kasai, a name that means "fire" in Japanese, is derived from the study of Shou Sugi Ban, or Yakisugi. This technique of burning wood slats creates a particular crackle effect on the wooden surface that gives the material a unique style. 

Although this work has been replaced by more modern techniques and materials, in recent years there has been a return of burnt wood used in architecture not only in Japan but also internationally as a feature of many projects. 

Therefore, with Kasai, Ceramiche Refin has paid homage to the Japanese design culture by giving porcelain stoneware the same visual and tactile characteristics of traditional burnt wood slats. The project is a collection of sophisticated and elegant ceramics, perfect for interior projects that want to celebrate the encounter between different cultures as well as between the past and present.

Cersaie will be a major showcase for the company where it can show the public the results of its in-depth research on materials inspired by natural materials such as stone and wood essences, to contemporary surfaces typical of industrial and urban environments, in the midst of avant-garde technologies and visionary beauty design.
