Portinari‘s Connect range was one of the most arresting design innovations at Revestir. This 190 by 190 by 10mm porcelain wall tile range is produced in steel lux, white matt, soft grey matt, grey matt, blue lux and off-white lux colour/finish options.
So what, you may ask? Well, the answer is that this collection is conceived like a geometric ceramic jigsaw puzzle. As the lively and effective video on the stand explained, Connect opens up creative possibilities through its sheer connectivity. The triangular pieces can be formed into rigid repeating patterns or abstract panels … and everything in between.
For designers looking to add some quirky personality into an otherwise staid interior scheme, Connect is an ideal tool.
It should also appeal to domestic consumers wishing to move beyond the day-to-day without taking too large an aesthetic risk.
Harnessing the full power of the humble triangle, Connect was one of the most successful new concepts at Revestir.
