Cersaie 2016 was a vintage show. The Bologna halls abounded with visually stunning, commercially viable and technically excellent tiles.
However one range – Tailorart by Ceramica Sant’Agosino – really stood out.
Tailorart is the latest manifestation of the company’s Digitalart concept. Of the many fabric-effect ranges on display at the show this one demanded attention with its well balanced and fashionably muted colour palette, highly-realistic woven detailing and its sheer livability.
Artistically sophisticated but with discreet sartorial taste, Tailorart is totally in tune with current interior design trends. After introducing the ceramic fabric effect in 2015 with the Digitalart collection, Sant’Agostino took this concept a giant step forward in 2016cwith Tailorart.
Colour, pattern and three-dimensional textured surfaces are combined to produce a porcelain tile, available in a strong range of soft and neutral shades, that meets the world of fashion with refined aesthetic, stylistic exclusivity and material power.
Harnessing the full potential of digital decoration technology, Tailorart is a rectified tile, 10mm thick, that comes in 900 by 900, 600 by 600, 300 by 600 and 150 by 600mm modular formats. There are seven colour options: Light, Sand, Taupe, Grey, Brown, Tartan Light and Tartan Dark. Tailorart is suitable for both wall and floor applications.
Already known as a design-led company, Tailorart confirmed that Ceramica Sant’Agostino is now firmly established one of the most progressive and inspired tile manufacturers on the planet.
