“Rombini is an alphabet of shapes and colors. The project consists of three models: tile, mosaic and relief elements. It is a collection that offers a complete solution, offering different combinations; rhythmic and colorful connections ranging from the tile to the mosaic, from the mosaic to the relief, from the relief to the tile” Bouroullec brothers say.
Declined in the symbolic Bouroullecs’ colors, the shape of the rhombus is told through elements in communication with each other, to become story and exchange. Rombini is a real interior design project, based on colour and composed by three elements: Carré, Losange and Triangle. Carré, 40x40 rectified slabs in glazed porcelain stoneware, are produced on a mould made of many little embossing diamonds on a matt surface
which gives a strong ceramic identity to the collection.
Carré is available in two versions: Uni, where colour is evenly distributed throughout the whole slab, and Light, where colour is used to underline the white diamonds outlines. With Losange, the shape of the rhombus becomes bigger and turns into a chip of a mosaic. Made of double charge porcelain stoneware, each piece is installed on 27,5x25,7 cm sheets.
The chromatic range results to be deep and intense, thanks to the matt surface which gives a natural character to the product. Even in this case the element is available in two versions, through the usage of matching or with contrasting grout, for a stronger vibration. Thanks to Triangle, the shape of the rhombus is interpreted in its three-dimensional shape, in order to create games of lights and darkness on the surface: the elements, realized in Large and Small versions, seem to arise from the floor and to carry on the wall covering.
“Ceramics! Working at my very first collection for Mutina, I’ve come to value the beauty of this simple and ancient material. A lump of clay that becomes floor, coating. The idea of matter as something composed of so many units, is really fundamental. A philosophical concept as much as a biological fact. The ceramic tile simply represents this: a small unit which, once multiplied, turns into something larger than the sum of its parts” Konstantin Grcic says.
The collection consists of squared tiles – 30x30 cm and 60x60 cm – with a different, partially glazed geometric form, in six different colors. These shapes create a pattern which magnifies into architecture.
