Their flexibility when it comes to shapes and their excitement when it comes to being involved in the delivery of unique architecture is not the only aspect that makes Cumella stand out from another serial production clay products manufacturers; another of Cumella’s fortes is their in house laboratory for the creation of bespoke colours such as pearlescent effects, metallics or print screens.
Together with Telling Architectural, Cumella are bringing to the UK and North American markets a cladding product specialised for the use in rainscreen facades and which has proved to have excellent CWCT test results for impact.
Telling Architectural’s thirst for bringing the latest technology to the façade market has seen us developing a system that casts stunning vivid terracotta onto 3D large format GRC panels as it is the case in the Brighton Music Pavillion.
