Surforma x Cassio
A non-conventional collection of conventional pieces created from Surforma’s laminates and compacts.
In collaboration with the designer Paulo Cassio, Surforma will present a series of furniture pieces that function as a showroom of the applicability of his portfolio of products in decorative environments, where the pieces are themselves experimental references of how decorators and product designers can complement their spaces with Surforma’s range of products.
As singular as the collection itself, Surforma’s catalogue presents images and production schemes for the Unconventional Collection. Made out of Metals Gold laminates on the front and Ultra Smooth deep Black laminates on the back cover, the catalogue sustains a direct connection between the product it presents and the sensation of touching it.
On the inside, the paper is made of the same pressed raw material from which the laminates are made of. This connection between material, touch and visual impact allows for an elevated, more personal connection with Surforma’s materials beyond technical specificities.
