The history of Ceramica Sant’Agostino goes back way beyond its 50 years of manufacturing; its roots lie in the grandiose past of Ferrara and the region of Emilia to which it is closely tied. This remarkable cultural background, combined with production and technical know-how, has allowed the firm to create alluring new surfaces. Among the latest of these, SET is a heterogeneous collection which draws inspiration from different materials.
Concrete, fabric, varnishes and marble are arranged in original combinations. And so, alongside the weave of a tartan fabric, we find the virility of concrete beside the elegance of marble chips in a GEM decor that’s never brusque but rather remarkable and personal. The cementine tile patterns of METROSIGN, meanwhile, help to create an attractive liaison with the past, evoking memories gone by yet current. The range is completed by structured external surfaces, a natural extension of the flooring inside, giving perfect continuity.
About Set collection
The contemporary languages, not only of the project but the same everyday life, are increasingly fluid, in the aesthetic values, social, economic. Nothing is more eclectic than the evolved ceramic matter, which seems to play free – in an alchemy of synthesis between derivations, intersections and compositions – with other materials: by studying, interpreting and shaping to make them more suitable for all the requirements of contemporary building and living. SET is a true fusion of different materials – cement: SET CONCRETE; cement-fabric: SET DRESS and SET TARTAN; cement with marble: SET GEM; paint: SET WALL; wood: METROWOOD; decoration: METROSIGNS – that intersect to join up one to the other and give life to small ceramic masterpieces.
