Viero is the Italian distinction of textured decorative finishes and plasters, specifically designed for the world of architecture, interior decoration and contract projects world-wide and for all those who appreciate and value Italian design and innovation without limits in colour, texture, thickness and individuality.
Lime Book is the latest expression of Viero innovation and competence in textured decorative finishes and plasters, A book dedicated to lime based decorative paint plasters, which for centuries has been fundamental in the evolutionary process of art and architecture, handed down since Roman times as an essential element of construction. In his treatises, Vitruvius describes lime as dust that naturally produces wonderful effects. From its narrative process we learn that lime is a geometrical yet intuitive substance. Its approach of spaces is simple and timeless, telling a tale that gets through to consciousness and the human dimension in its everyday environment.
Its identity is built through a slow process, simultaneously defining its aesthetic spirit as something substantial. The white calcareous stone is cooked and freed from its weight, immersed in water and exposed to air, thus retaining composure and equilibrium. The result can be seen on the surfaces with their dense, porous and almost lightweight finishes. On them the fluidity of the mortar generates not only a peculiar movement but also a frequency that gives life to a rich texture, saturated with features such as strength, water resistance and compatibility to all things physical.
