The inspiration for this collection comes from the flooring recovered from an old country home in Romagna, dating back to the early 1900s, when cement began to be used as a binder for renovation work, but pieces of marble or recycled materials were used as insets.
In the porcelain stoneware of I COCCI, the grain size varies depending on the size of the different pieces obtained from a single type of traditional white marble chips and white cotto. The mortar used is grey on the outside and white at the core. The collection features a base tile with the same “gravelly” pattern present on the decorative element.
DETAILS THAT GUARANTEE STYLE AND ELEGANCE
Given that “classic” style is definitely enjoying renewed popularity, the German art historian Joachim Winckelmann invites us to reflect on the profound reasoning behind the creation of works from the past, with a view to bringing their style to new creations. This is the aim underlying the I COCCI series, which boasts all the charm of the old grit flooring in a resistant, functional ceramic material. This takes us back to the early 20th century, when cement began to be used as a binder in restructuring work, and pieces of marble and recovered materials were inserted into flooring. The distinctive feature of these floors is the “Spaccato” in which the grain size varies depending on the size of the different pieces inserted. The “gravel” pattern in the “Spaccato” and repeated on the base makes this collection suitable even for more modern settings, both residential and commercial. An aged-old aesthetic approach given a present-day touch to respond to the most contemporary interior design requirements.
