Clay, sand and earth are used to create a collection of small porcelain stoneware tiles, Terre Garzate, in which the geometric shapes are repeated and overlap with each other in an infinite array of combinations and visual effects. Ceramic floors and wall tiles where the crude and primitive material of the gauzy and tangled patterns expresses different sensations depending on whether they are combined with one colour or another.
The range of colours for this collection of floors and wall tiles, created to be laid in all rooms of the house, from the bathroom to the kitchen, is extensive. Warm and deep colour effects for these 20x20 tiles which celebrate traditional flavours. Whether decorated with bubbles or brushstrokes, the geometric composition is highly suggestive, just like the canvases of the Bauhaus school, inspiration for the ceramic collection.
The careful choice of colours, befitting of a work of art, results in surfaces similar to those of a canvas which, overlapping with each other, create a visual perception of fluttering elements. Gesso, Cenere, Pepe Nero, Terra, Caffè, Senape and finally Guado, the deep blue inspired by the shade so beloved by Gio Ponti. The strong contrasts between the tiles project Terre Garzate into pictorial atmospheres where, in relation to each other, the different shades and different figures create different optical effects and depths depending on the light.
The 5x20 glossy brickwork, coordinated with the 20x20 tiles, complete the range, enriching the pattern with more original combinations and solutions to envelop the house in a unique atmosphere rich in history and tradition. The Terre Garzate Bolle decor can give extra depth to a room when combined with plain-coloured side walls and a wood-effect stoneware floor. The combination of the plain mustard-coloured tile with the Setola Senape decor, just for small parts of walls, creates a highly original overall effect without overloading the space with excessive decorations.
A nostalgic 1970’s atmosphere pervades the space with a Calacatta marble-effect floor combined with the Terre Garzate Guado blue wall tile. The mix and match potential of this collection of stoneware wall tiles with large sizes and ceramic floor tiles is infinite.
