BECAUSE IDEAS CAN BE HOT AND COLD.
TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION, CLEAN SHAPES AND CUSTOMISATION IN STAINLESS STEEL
Entering the bathroom sector in 1984, as a specialised company in plumbing and installation systems planning, CEA (Centro Energie Alternative) naturally moves to the design sector in 2007. Devoted to innovation, site-specific planning and product re-interpretation, CEA puts its passion, know-how and vision at the service of architects.
Thanks to long-standing experience, CEA offers a truly unique selection of customizable planning solutions, to enable a completely flexible approach towards design and architecture. Every aspect of planning is involved: engineering and technical innovation, installation and architecture, design and innovative materials, regarding to aesthetic value, functionality, sustainability and concern for the environment.
CEA range includes bathroom taps and accessories, kitchen taps, outdoor showers and ceiling destratification fans, characterised by low consumption, high performance and flexibility in application. The whole CEA production is Made in Italy and distributed in prestigious bath furnishing and decor show-rooms worldwide.
CEA develops ideas shaped as bathroom and kitchen taps, manufacturing AISI 316/L stainless steel: a pure, loyal and responsible material.
Pure because stainless steel is 100% recyclable and not chemically treated or varnished.
Loyal because stainless steel is highly performing, with unique characteristics of durability and hygiene as well as of resistance to salt and sulphurous water or the polluted environment.
Responsible because stainless steel is cold-forged: satin and polished finishes are obtained through lathe mechanical processes, optimising water and power consumption in respect of the environment. Totally recyclable, stainless steel promises eternal life, requires minimal care and can always be mechanically renovated.
CEA realises clean forms with a strong technological bias, in the constant listening of the market, to add value to designers’ work and anticipate their needs.
CEA promotes the culture of technology, design and well-being in the CEAlab: the company magazine collecting some of the most significant international projects realized by retailers, architects and interior designers featuring CEA products.
CEA communicates its brand the world through an advertising campaign in leading magazines and web platforms, in Italy and abroad.
