a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Azulej is a very complete collection by Patricia Urquiola, used to create decorated spaces but also minimal ones.
It is composed by three base colours (Bianco, Grigio and Nero, available in sizes 20x20cm), from which 27 singular patterns are created to compose combinations, sold as a whole. Out of the 27 patterns, 9 are sold individually to be repeated endlessly and combined.
Designed for RAMACIERI SOLIGO, the collection is complete with 3 solid neutrals that are used to design carpet patterns or borders as well as to be used solely.
Patricia explains the collection:
“We would like to evaluate the memory of hydraulic cement, experimenting with an innovative digital printing technique which enables the production of a high diffusion product. The patterns deliberately combine different aesthetic languages: memories, geometrical schemes, floral design, all developed both in a longitudinal and diagonal direction. The process has exponentially developed, and we have managed only to sketch some possible combinations...and now, it’s up to you!”
The product is suitable both for floor and wall and can be used indoor and outdoor. It is rectified and mono-calibre. To obtain the best aesthetic result, it is suggest to fix it with a 1-2 mm joint.
Leaders in the Montreal ceramic industry since 1967, the Ramacieri family, now headed by third generation owner Gianni Ramacieri, associated with the Soligo Family in 2004. This association allowed for the ability to offer a wider variety of high end Italian products both in ceramic as well as plumbing. Now Ramacieri Soligo is in constant expansion, boasting a 13,000 square foot showroom while still maintaining a “boutique” commerce atmosphere where quality of service, products and innovation are of the highest priority.
