A cloud of matterNebula is the exclusive application method devised by inMateria that transcends the limitations of manual trowelling. Nebula can be used to cover more curved and irregular surfaces with a cloud of concrete or clay, for a decidedly striking textured effect even on items subjected to special processing.
Nebula stems from inMateria’s desire to overcome the limits of non-linear surfaces by providing a revolutionary solution that is highly industrialised 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 that enhances the craftsmanship quality of the finished product: the base of a table, a faceted decorative element, a particularly complex shape.
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.
