Product used

On each of the 33 floors, including the entrance hall and basement, the main building of Unipol Tower has been cladded with 10,000 square meters of Kerlite, 100x100cm format. The great quantity of natural light  permitted the designers to choose the colour “Road” from the OVER collection – an elegant reference to cementitious resins, in this case black. For the interior of the bathrooms the grey Office slabs were chosen, another colour from the Over series, this time rectangular, thus creating the illusion of slightly expanding spaces.
