Fifth Element Handmade Tiles
A new concept of multi-thickness in which every single piece is handcrafted extruded with different heights and planarity. The sharp edges disappear giving a unique feeling of softness and materiality.
Unique Aesthetic: Climabase is work crafted wet with special rollers and dies that transform each piece in a unique element and the result is always changing. This helps to create a inimitable effect of a finished surface.
Surface silk: Unlike industrial production, the surface is silky to touch despite being neither glazed nor polished. This is because the die extrudign the pieces create a surface film in which the clay particles are rubbed on each other.
Particular forms: The typical system of extruding die cutting allows the realisation of complex shapes. It is similar to 'Tigelle', one of the famous cuisines of Modena.
Greater flexibility: The extrusion craft does not press the dry clay to create very high voltages by leaving the vacuum extruded material to adapt to the desired form. This improves the technical characteristics of the product and makes it more elastic than an industrial product.
