"Inspired by accidental compositions and the mysterious character of traces left behind."
The Trespa® Meteon® portfolio already offers high-end HPL cladding panels in vibrant colours, naturally looking wood and stone decors. A third set of abstract variation designs–like Metallics, Lumen and now Lumen Metallics– offer unique effects, textures and finishes for outstanding façades. Two sets of extraordinary design, developed under the new Focus collection, are the latest addition to the Trespa® Meteon® family.
With the development of the Trespa® Meteon® Focus collection, the Trespa Technology Centre team is now exploring this boundless creative space where history, culture, imagination and observation intertwine. The result is two unique sets of designs: Santiago and Brooklyn, each representing an abstract idea or concept.
Compositions, or the arrangement of objects in space, are often created intentionally by an artist or architect. Sometimes, however, they form coincidentally by means of natural phenomena or by the contribution of different people over time. That is how cities come to be. It is also the inspiration for the Santiago designs. An abstract interpretation of a city scape, in which each building is individually designed and built, but the whole view gives a new sensation. The light reflection and contours of different buildings stacked against each other, in serendipitous ways, defined the shapes of the designs.
The second set of Focus cladding panels finds inspiration in the ephemeral nature of traces. Used in books and in movies as elements that evoke interest and suspense, traces are fascinating in that they only reveal part of the story. They give hints of what happened somewhere at some point in time but still leave space for part of the event to be filled in by fantasy and our imagination. In this range we have captured traces in the surface of the products, leaving the space for everyone to fill in part of the story for themselves.
