A Perfect 10

The Fine Print

Cool young company 41zero42 showed Signs, a collection of full-body extruded porcelain with a finish of six patterns — delicate and exquisitely evocative — randomly mixed. In four colours: Black, White, Grey and Mud. 41zero42.com


A Certain Naiveté

Patrick Norguet continues his collaboration with Lea Ceramiche with Naive, an ultra-thin porcelain collection available in extra-large sizes. Says the head of Studio Norguet Design, “The patterns, reminiscent of carefully drawn pencil lines, create an interweaving effect, a network of random signs emanating an emotional candour.” ceramichelea.com


Fine Geometry

Guilio Iachhetti designed the Labyrinth collection of porcelain stonewear for Design TaleStudio, owned by Ceramiche Refin. With this geometric construction generated within a square, lines join mid-point to the opposite vertices until they form two opposing L-shaped elements. It’s available in Mirror (shown) and Angle configurations. designtalestudio.com


Architecturally Speaking

A partnership between Giugiaro Architettura and Ceramiche Del Conca, GA by Giugiaro Architettura draws its main inspiration from the texture of carbon fibre and the geometry of the air intakes of Parcour, the flagship of Italdesign-Giugiaro’s concept car fleet. delconca.com


Everything into the Mix

Imola Ceramia’s Mash-up collection starts with a single format (30×60 cm) and two neutral colours (white and almond). From there, add wave effects, diamonds and geometrical shapes; floral patterns, lines and stripes; patterned sections, intense colours, drawings and more. imolaceramica.com


All in the Details

With Details, from Tagina Ceramiche d’Arte, the ceramic tile takes on a new kind of tri-dimensionality. Available in nine colours in three sizes, also in the hexagonal shape, for both floors (in glazed porcelain) and walls (in double-fired white body). tagina.it


Small Packages

Just a tease at Cersaie, Micro-Brik designed by Nendo for Brix will be available in early 2016. Putting micro-mosaics at the centre of its design, the tile comes in seven different patterns based on the idea of reducing the dimension of the classic brick usually used in building. brixweb.com


Graphic Art

Ornamenta’s Paper collection — for both floors and walls — not only mimics graph paper but can be written on (and easily erased) with chalk. ornamenta.com


Off The Wall

3D Wall Design by Atlas Concord offers nine different three-dimensional surfaces (shown: Blade) for decorative walls, characterized by a velvety and bright glaze that enhances the motifs. atlasconcorde.it


Not Just Another Brick

Emile Ceramica Group’s Brick Design can be completely customized in colour and quantity. Flaws left from the forging process are visible, generating light and shade effects that give a sense of movement and variety. emilceramicagroup.com
