with the advancements of ceramic engineering for architecture, tiles are now available in larger sizes and with much more vivid colors. building upon that, studio formafantasma’s ‘cromatica’ range comprises of six declined colors in two surfaces – natural and glossy – and combines them to create environments of rich tones. the palette was chosen from extensive research into the brand’s archive, specifically referencing a line of enamels designed by ettore sottsass.

titled ‘ frammenti’, martino gamper introduces a new type of decoration that highlights the beauty of highly customized environments. the design explores different stylistic contexts by deconstructing and then reassembling existing materials to create new aesthetics and reconfigurations. with multiple color and shape variations, the process is creative rather than deconstructive, and results in offering users a unique product with a high visual impact.
