Exploring the Surround 2020 Collection - Video Series

Exploring the Surround 2020 Collection is the story behind the design, development and evolution of Cemintel’s Surround range, and one we thought worth sharing.

Working with our design collaboration partner and industry professional, Kathy Demos, we discuss the range’s origin and the themes that drove the philosophy behind it, the naming convention, and also how you can work with some of the new highlight colours. It’s raw and it’s real.

We hope you enjoy Exploring the Surround 2020 Collection ...

Episode 1 - Face Forward, Patchwork & Water - in this opening episode we revisit Face Forward and discuss the ongoing themes of 'Patchwork' and Water'.


The 2020 Collection takes Surround to a new level. Five neutral ‘ISH’ colours in five textures. A range of 16 secondary colours that allow architects, designers and builders to work with colour in ways that are both idiosyncratic and accessible.
