“Sticks is a system of modules of matter where finishes and cut shapes multiply potential uses on floors, pavings and walls.
I worked by subtraction, seeking simple changes which would modify the perception of the entire finished surface”.
Sticks is a system of matter + texture + sizes + colors allowing any floor or wall surface to be rendered truly individual.
The basic 5×30 cm stick is available in 2 variants: SMOOTH, in which a very subtle texture gives the material a hand-crafted air, and MIX, a random assortment of 3 different textures.
The sticks, boxed as loose pieces, can be used exactly as preferred, to create infinite installation solutions.
They are subdivided several times into smaller sizes (10 mmx300 mm, 10 mmx100 mm) and mesh-mounted, completely transforming the initial surface.
The colors and sizes are conceived to enable its use as a universal flooring surface, in combination with every Mosaico+ collection.
Sticks is a porcelain stoneware collection which can be used for indoor and outdoor floor and wall coverings and pavings.
