Creative ceramics in a collector’s home
At Palazzo Bovara, in the Elle Decor Italia installation for Milan Design Week, architect Giuliano Andrea Dell'Uva creates an installation focused on light and the expressive characteristics of materials. The artist selected the Crogiolo Rice collection for its shade variation and the imperfection of its surface, which recalls hand-made pottery, Crogiolo Memoria and Confetto for its matt finish and strong relationship with light. Ceramics that create scenarios in a collage of references to the ‘70s and ‘80s.
Spaces we use every day, familiar and reassuring, yet also amazing in the quality of their design, furnishings and materials, all reflecting Italian savoir faire. These are some of the ingredients of the Marazzi 2023 international advertising campaign, which features the new Grande marble-effect slabs with a contemporary air and the Crogiolo Confetto small-size tiles with uneven surface, both manufactured in a closed-cycle, environment-friendly process.
