Design Tale Studio + Alessandro & Francesco Mendini
"Our decorative patterns originate from a range of references: nature, history, symbols, geometry. In the case of Filo for DesignTaleStudio, the strained weave of the lines comes from the three-dimensional movement of a grid; waves are created in its geometries, changing their measurements. The hypothesis is to obtain a vaguely electrical optical result, drawing attention to the floor as we walk on it ."
The FILO collection was designed by the Mendini architects as an out-of-competition entry in the "Create your Tile" competition, run by Ceramiche Refin to source new creative inspiration and pursue its path towards ceramic innovation.
The hypothesis is to obtain a vaguely electrical optical result. Waves are created in its geometries, changing their measurements, the strained weave of the lines comes from the three-dimensional movement of a grid.
The project comprises 4 graphic works measuring 75×75 cm, mixed together to create decorative patterns with rapid, random movements. The colours are defined by a careful research into colour trends and are divided by different combinations of backgrounds and thinlines.
