A couple more curiosities from cyberspace for ceramic-loving civilians.
This iconic ‘four curve’ puzzle piece style tile was designed by Gio Ponti and Alberto Rosselli in the 60s. We’ve seen quite a bit of it amongst Marazzi‘s designs, especially it’s colour-blocked varieties, but marble effects, patchworks patterns, terrazzo style, and more make it worth a mention in our curiosities.
2) Ogi Matcha Gloss Fan Mosaic
A stunning flattened take on the trendy fan mosaic shapes, Ogi Matcha from Byzantine Design is understated beauty at its best. With all the charm of hand-crafted tiles, a rippled relief, and a wonderful play of shadow and shade, we couldn’t help but share.
This playful bubblegum patchwork from Veneto Ceramics makes a children’s playground out of any space. A selection of soft shades with randomised curves, squares, and triangles evokes a sense of fun with a layout that bursts full of life.
4) Adobe Decor Patchwork
We’ve seen a lot of lilypad/dandelion/starburst tiles and plenty of tropical/floral/leaf patterned tiles over the past few years, but these Adobe Decor Patchwork tiles from Life Cerámica are the first time we’ve seen them combined.
Wood-effect tiles are one of the most wonderful inventions of the ceramic world. The freedom and flexibility they afford and creativity they inspire has led to many of our favourite tiles, including this collection by Cerâmica Portinari. Both the decors and the line mix create something utterly magnificent, one with a rattan vibe and one twisted wood.
