Irregolarità, matericità, dimensionalità
Nel nostro immaginario il mosaico ha una posa regolare e geometrica, in cui la fuga raramente varia di spessore. P-saico è un nuovo concetto di mosaico in cui la regolarità viene applicata solo alla forma rettangolare della tessera ma il risultato della posa è irregolare.
L’ispirazione parte dallo studio dell’Opus Incertum in cui la posa e la superficie creano casualità regolare.
Studio Irvine is a design studio based in Milan and run by the architect Marialaura Rossiello Irvine.
Founded in 1988 by British designer James Irvine (1958-2013), the studio remains faithful to his design approach and method in a combination of irony and precision. Based on the idea of design inspired by attention to ethics, the ‘human factor’ and personal interaction, Marialaura Rossiello is instilled with a vision in constant evolution, rooted in the classics of the Italian design school but with a broader international outlook.
For a number of years, she collaborated with Italian design brands, and grew accustomed to consider the product within a comprehensive corporate process. In 2011 she became partner of Studio Irvine, where industrial products were the throbbing heart of design. Today her work is distinctively cross-disciplinary with a great curiosity towards all types and scales of design projects: product, interior and strategic design, with clients such as Muji, Yamakawa, Thonet, Offecct, Amorim, Matteo Brioni, Baleri Italia, and others.
