Bisazza + India Mahdavi
India Mahdavi Wednesday 25 Nov 2015

As part of the Fuorisalone Off-Site events in April of this year, Bisazza previewed their new signature tiles by India Mahdavi for the Contemporary Cement Tiles line at its flagship store in via Senato 2.

A collection that reflects the creative, eclectic, playful and subtly satirical style of the French designer – optical graphic motifs featuring sleek lines in an array of daring, unexpected colour combinations give rise to pop and ‘70s inspired designs. Tiles with stripes, polka dots, bubbles, squares and multi-colour patterns in undulating shapes create a dynamic effect through endless repetition.

Available in two formats - 20x20cm square or 20x23cm hexagonal – each cement tile is made entirely by hand and painstakingly crafted through a process that lends character to this collection. A linguistically modern savvy sets apart this new line by India Mahdavi for the Bisazza Contemporary Cement Tiles collection. These decorative tiles reveal a refined trendiness, thanks to a unique combination of design and craftsmanship.

"My designs speak to us and to one another. They’re chatty, almost colloquial. In order to distinctly avoid static designs, I intend to free up space, allowing for a kind of visual dialogue between the tiles. Each tile is like a component of a visual alphabet. Before you know it, a conversation is being had.” India Mahdavi
