Decorations and finishes from the new Cinque Terre Colors & Natural Collection by Fantoni
The new Cinque Terre Colors & Natural Collection by Fantoni was created with the aim of offering designers solutions for "total look" environments, developed in collaboration with Studio Rossi & Co in Thiene (VI), a series of decors specially designed to suggest material and chromatic combinations refined, able to create a balance in the definition of the interiors.


Infinite decoration / finish combinations

The collection, designed for the furniture industry, includes a selection of decors and finishes with cutting-edge color, material and tactile solutions. The surfaces are uniform, continuous and coordinated from a material and aesthetic point of view.

The versatility and variety of the coverings, characterized by infinite decoration / finish combinations, allow companies in the sector to create particular solutions, inspired by the charm of nature and the suggestive landscapes of the Cinque Terre, to which the collection wants to be a tribute.


Fantoni and Lacon: a winning collaboration

Fantoni, a manufacturer of MDF and chipboard panels, and Lacon, a company of the group specializing in the impregnation of melamine papers, finishing and production of laminates for interior design and architecture, have given life to the Cinque Terre project. In fact, the Collection relies on the production capacity of Lacon systems, which makes it possible to satisfy every dimensional requirement by creating innovative solutions that limit waste to a minimum while respecting production needs and aesthetic results.


Cinque Terre collection: intense colors and natural shades

The Cinque Terre project is actually made up of two Collections: Cinque Terre Colors and Cinque Terre Natural. Cinque Terre Colors ranges from the cold tones of the sea to the warm tones of the earth and is made up of Oltremare, Selva, Ambra, Caramel and Scarlet nuances. Cinque Terre Natural, on the other hand, recalls the decisive tones of the stone and the impalpable ones of the sand with the Mocha and Dune colors.

Making the Cinque Terre project even more versatile is the expressive freedom of Mix and Match, where new combinations suggest future trends in the furniture world.
