Continuing the exploration of current tile design trends by Kristin Coleman and the team from Novita PR in the USA, here Tile Addict looks at the Deconstructed theme.
Tile companies are constantly seeking new ways to add movement and volume to the flat surface, whether by texture, pattern, or trompe l’oeil effects.
Deconstructed is the most recent example, featuring a breakdown and reconstruction of shapes that transcend the traditional rectilinear format of a tile.
Many of these collections are created by designers known for their eclectic approach like Studiopepe and Paola Navone and range from kaleidoscopic patterns and floating geometric shapes to fragments of seemingly broken tile.
Relevant collections include Studios of Casamood by Casa Dolce Casa, Shades by Casalgrande Padana, Corrispondenza and Palladiana by Ceramica Bardelli, Fragments by Ceramiche Piemme (above left), Bonbon by Decoratori Bassanesi, I Cocci by Fioranese, Metafisico by Ornamenta (above right) and Vanguard by Pastorelli.
