The deep breath of history in an impasto of veiled colours creates interlacing marble that blossoms in an amalgam of colours and is reflected lightly in an interplay of equal and opposite forms, a surface that is unmovable and yet continuously evolving; infinite shades of a mosaic of light, where each line is lost in the abyss of a sea of glass and clay, which plays and transforms colours’ Opificio Ceramico
These are the three descriptions of the all-Italian “cube” of Opificio Ceramico, a surprising travel through the products made in Italy in three of the most emblematic cities of the Italian art scene that give their name to the three new collections: Florence, Venice and Murano.
The first, designed in collaboration with Rodolfo Dordoni, was born from the magnificent city of Florence thanks to a marble woven with brushstrokes, like sixteenth-century Florentine papers, as a tribute to the city of the Lily and its wealth.
Six nuances of coloured mixtures are the protagonists of the collection which, mixed two by two, create different textures while maintaining the basic identity of the colour, making each piece a “variegated” unicum.
At the same time, second but not least, the Venezia collection with its dance of light and shadow and its reflections best describes the Venetian ambience and the art of ‘hand-made’.
Elegant and refined, contemporary but at the same time romantic, inextricably linked to Fondaco, Rialto, Calle and Lido.
And finally, the pearl of the Venetian lagoon, Murano, the collection that, like a mosaic of shapes and colours with unique and unmistakable details, is linked to water and to the renowned glass, the island’s treasure.
On this road trip through the ancient beauties of Italy, Opificio Ceramico also brings a breath of innovation with NeoClay™.
A new ceramic material, created with the clays used in porcelain stoneware and the addition of minerals and other natural components which, by lowering the coefficient of water absorption and bringing it close to zero, raises the level of porcelain stoneware and makes it usable as both floor and wall tiles in all kinds of indoor and outdoor spaces.
