Inner strength, courage, ability to face one's fears. We are children of a history that has taught us to become skilled predators of a freedom that allows us to feel protected in a familiar and ancestral nature. As if we were a wolf, whose survival instinct coincides with the primordial return to the one from which it all started, we smell the night in search of prey but always return to our refuge in search of peace and comfort. We Belong To Nature.
Novacolor welcomes this impetuous and instinctive nature and transforms it into We Belong To Nature, the 2022 concept declined in decorative proposals that enhance and respect the nature that surrounds us, until it becomes the subjective frame through which to look at the world.
After the path dedicated to gratitude, a symbol of serene awareness, personified with an ethereal but dominant light, capable of enhancing living and socializing spaces, Novacolor takes us towards an evolutionary phase which, looking to the future, brings us back to the womb of Mother Nature. Natural, authentic and ethereal textures represent this ambition and make it concrete.
For the five photographs of the We Belong to Nature campaign, some of Novacolor's products were chosen, which represent the concrete commitment that the company has undertaken for a sustainable future for years. CalceCruda Intonachino (stone effect), decorative mineral coating with a strong natural connotation that actively contributes to living comfort and capable of significantly reducing the concentration of formaldehyde possibly present in the air. This last green feature also belongs to Africa, a decorative coating for interiors based on metallic charges that allows you to create plays of light and tactile textures with a strong aesthetic impact. Marmorino KS, which turns twenty this year, will be the protagonist of a celebratory online campaign. This slaked lime-based product for smoothing and satin effect finishes, is composed of hydrated lime, selected marble sands and rheological modifiers to ensure excellent workability. IRONic, returns to the scene with its unique features. A water-based system consisting of a base coat (IRONic Fondo) and an oxidizing finish (IRONic Liquido Antichizzante), which produces an oxidation that is completely identical to what can be detected on a ferrous surface exposed to natural corrosion by atmospheric agents. Alongside IRONic, another high-impact product: Verderame Wall_Painting, a decorative coating with an oxidized copper effect, for interiors and exteriors, produces an oxidation that is also identical to that of a copper surface exposed to natural corrosion by atmospheric agents.
We Belong To Nature is the natural consequence of all the results achieved and those that will still be achieved.
Through the concept campaigns of each year, Novacolor communicates how our continuous commitment to transforming product production sets us apart. The use of raw materials from biomass derived from agricultural waste, the study of sustainable products and, at the same, time providing functional solutions to a new concept of living, linked to well-being and awareness, without ever renouncing aesthetics, are constant guidelines for the brand.
Targeted investments in development, research and technology, detailed analysis, courageous choices and company solidity have allowed us to make a great contribution to the decorative finishes market by offering solutions with high added value, thanks to the use of high-quality and organic raw materials for the production of finishes with low environmental impact.
The enhancement of surfaces as works of art, creativity in the development of new products and a range of colours always in step with the latest market trends; checks carried out at every production stage, care in processing, and company organisation subject to precise protocols, guarantee UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 Certified Quality and make our R&D department the main driver of creation and innovation in Novacolor products.
"We bring all our enthusiasm and expertise to bear in developing successful projects with our customers in the global design and architecture sector. Each day, we strive to do better with new decorative effects, better-performing innovative products, more respect for the planet and people, more practical solutions, and a broader worldwide service. Seeing our customers satisfied motivates us to do our best, always!"
- Roberta Vecci, International Marketing Group Director
The combination of ideas, insights, in-depth feasibility studies and new-product development make the Novacolor brand acknowledged worldwide as a benchmark company for the best international architecture and design firms.
Novacolor operates in Italy through a network of over 100 specialist retailers. Abroad, we are active in more than 70 countries, and have partnerships with leading manufacturers, architectural firms involved in the contract segment, importers and retailers specializing in decoration and interior design.
Novacolor was established in 1982 in Forlì, in the heart of one of Italy's most productive areas. In 2009 Novacolor becomes part of the San Marco Group, the leading company in Italy in the manufacture of painting systems for the building industry, becoming the group's "top brand" in the high quality decorative finishes sector. Through this acquisition, both companies benefit in terms of know-how and reputation, both nationally and internationally.
In January 2021, Novacolor closes its legal identity and completes its merger by incorporation within San Marco Group SpA, thus further strengthening its position and benefiting from the Group's strengths: R&D, the purchase of innovative raw materials, and the industrial and logistics platforms.
Vision, creativity and meticulous care in selecting high-quality materials have enabled Novacolor to offer architects and designers a full range of interior and exterior decorative finishes, as well as mineral and synthetic coatings ideal for modern façades and historic buildings. Novacolor has also become specialized in making continuous wall and floor systems for indoor and outdoor use, and high-quality matt, gloss and satin paints.
Novacolor is the colours of Architecture.
