Mosaico+,which is part of Mapei Group, is a growing Italian brand that is gaining authority in the architecture and interior design environment.
With the aim of giving the word “mosaic” a modern meaning, we ask designers to study with us the infinite possibilities of matter – glass, wood, stone, ceramic – and develop seamless surfaces in which small elements are fully integrated with joints.
We produce high quality floor and surface coverings and offer skilled support to designers and customers.
Quilt_design Studio Irvine
Quilt is a stoneware mosaic in which the modules can be installed uniformly, for a geometrical effect, or at random, in an uneven layout that recalls antique Venetian Seminato pavings. The joint plays the same role as the decorative stitching.
Studio Irvine is a design studio based in Milan and run by the architect Marialaura Rossiello Irvine.
Founded in 1988 by British designer James Irvine (1958-2013), the studio remains faithful to his design approach and method in a combination of irony and precision. Based on the idea of design inspired by attention to ethics, the ‘human factor’ and personal interaction, Marialaura Rossiello is instilled with a vision in constant evolution, rooted in the classics of the Italian design school but with a broader international outlook.
For a number of years, she collaborated with Italian design brands, and grew accustomed to consider the product within a comprehensive corporate process. In 2011 she became partner of Studio Irvine, where industrial products were the throbbing heart of design. Today her work is distinctively cross-disciplinary with a great curiosity towards all types and scales of design projects: product, interior and strategic design, with clients such as Muji, Yamakawa, Thonet, Offecct, Amorim, Matteo Brioni, Baleri Italia, and others.
