SOLIDO typeM is an uncoated cement wall panel for interior and exterior applications. The product embodies the traditional Japanese aesthetic of "wabi-sabi", which holds that beauty is both imperfect and transient. Each panel is unique due to the natural pigments and inherent properties of the cement. The panels develop surface efflorescence as they age, which leaves an organic, unique, and distinctive pattern on the face of each panel. SOLIDO typeM comes in two colors: "Tetsuguro", which is colored with a traditional black iron oxide pigment, and "Cement", which retains the original gray hue of the material.
