Primal is a collection of glazed porcelain stoneware, suitable for indoor and outdoor use, has a thickness of 10 mm and is available in 5 colors in the format 90×90 cm and in 3 colors in the format 60×120 cm.
Primal is characterized by a surface that is not perfectly regular and by an aesthetic in seeded, whose uneven distribution and changes of tone are desired. The random arrangement of the material ensures maximum surface naturalness.
The mosaic becomes a seamless surface, when the chips and the joint generate a single pattern that overcomes the sheet’s outline.
Cuts of matter from out of square geometries enter a regular grid where the joints mark the rhythm of the gaze.
Crack! resolutely shifts the point of view from the chips to the grid that contains them, reaching continuity through a dialogue between container and joint.
Cut-up is a collection of full-body porcelain stoneware suitable for indoor and outdoor use on both floors and walls.
Once the modules have been laid and grouted, they are no longer legible and the surface becomes a complex combination of different elements, shapes and dimensions.
Jointed is a vitreous mosaic of stained-glass, obtained from voluminous slabs made through a process of extrusion of glass and enamels.
The cutting process is handmade and produces sharp edges. Jointed can be colored with solid and flat colors or have a veined surface.
