A Modern Design Touch
Given that “classic” style is definitely enjoying renewed popularity, the German art historian Joachim Winckelmann invites us to reflect on the profound reasoning behind the creation of works from the past, with a view to bringing their style to new creations. This is the aim underlying the I COCCI series, which boasts all the charm of the old grit flooring in a resistant, functional ceramic material. This takes us back to the early 20th century, when cement began to be used as a binder in restructuring work, and pieces of marble and recovered materials were inserted into flooring. The distinctive feature of these floors is the “Spaccato” in which the grain size varies depending on the size of the different pieces inserted. The “gravel” pattern in the “Spaccato” and repeated on the base makes this collection suitable even for more modern settings, both residential and commercial. An age-old aesthetic approach given a present-day touch to respond to the most contemporary interior design requirements. A profoundly new take on the material, with echoes of classical ambiences in which elegance and sophistication make their way into modern homes, recreating that distinctive prestige of days long gone and giving it a contemporary twist.
