Pinch reinterprets the fragmented Venetian Seminato material
Friday 02 February 2018
An accurate evocation of the details and colours of Venetian Seminato, given new life through a modern interpretation of this fragmented material
It is an evocative return, recalling interiors with an air of time-worn luxury. Not only historic buildings, in which Venetian Seminato provided the floorings of large aristocratic saloons, but also the domestic interiors of a more recent, familiar past.
Through the Pinch porcelain stoneware collection, Marazzi offers its modern reinterpretation of the beauty of theexquisite marble granules which constituted classical floor coverings like “Venetian Terrazzo” or “Venetian Seminato”.
The 5 colours in the range run from white to black by means of intermediate shades such as grey or beige. Solutions which bring prestige to interiors furnished in classical style (perhaps with dark, old-fashioned colours) or give character tomodern, minimalist design schemes. As in other collections, Marazzi aims to support the most widely varying design requirements through a wide selection of glossy and matt mosaics.
These fragments of material gain a new identity, which also extends to the geometric sizes used. The classical hexagon is unravelled to open the way to new, more imaginative interlocking laying patterns, evoking colours and geometric effects more similar to Palladiana floors. The potentials offered by the Lux decor and mosaic effectin the Marazzi Pinch collection are particularly interesting here. A patchwork of colours and surfaces for combination with all collection variants and ideal for creating wall panels or defining floors with a strong personality.
