Ma.Vi. Ceramica presents three new exceptional collections at Cersaie 2023 in Bologna: Striche, Torricini and Solchi Tattile. These creations, created by talented designers, blend tradition and innovation, taking inspiration from wooden boiserie, the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino and suggestive graphic signs.
Cersaie in Bologna, scheduled from 25 to 29 September, has always been one of the most anticipated events in the field of design and architecture. This year, Ma.Vi. Ceramica is preparing to present a series of surprising innovations thanks to the artistic direction of architect Daniele Della Porta and his collaboration with talented designers. Let's see together what the company has in store for us at this edition of Cersaie.
Striche collection, design Studio Ruga.Perissinotto
The Striche Collection takes inspiration from the research conducted by Alessandro Ruga and Carlotta Perissinotto in the field of interior design. The designers have focused their attention on the trend of using vertical blockboard wood paneling to give character to the rooms.
The result is a suggestive reinterpretation of this verticalisation of the design in two-dimensional form, through the use of two distinct colours: one to define the front of the decoration and the other to create the thickness of the strip. This choice generates an effect of continuous overlapping of the slats, rather than a simple juxtaposition of separate modules.
Some tiles also have an absence of decoration, creating contrasts between solids and voids and interrupting the uniform flow of the wall. Furthermore, a distinctive element of this collection is the use of the typical brushstroke sign, a combination of tradition and contemporary graphic sign.
Torricini collection, design Cale Design
The Torricini Collection is a tribute to the majestic Palazzo Ducale of Urbino, known for its "torricini façade" which extends towards the valley and overlooks Rome. This facade, with its two cylindrical towers, windows and overlapping arcaded loggias, was transformed into geometric shapes in the tiles, allowing for the creation of infinite combinations, both casual and narrative.
Alessia Romani and Carla Gambioli, the creative minds behind this collection, were inspired by the rich cultural heritage of Montefeltro, located in the hinterland of the Marche province of Pesaro and Urbino.
This territory was the heart of the Renaissance, with artists such as Raphael, Piero della Francesca, Francesco di Giorgio Martini and Bramante who contributed to defining a unique vision of the world. Cale Design seeks to embody this legacy, reinterpreting cities and architecture into unique objects.
Solchi Tattile collection, design Rasna Studio
The Solchi Collection is characterized by a dualism between sight and touch, with two distinct versions: Graphic and Tactile. The distinctive signs of these collections are the result of an in-depth graphic study and continuous research into ceramic techniques by Roberto Ambrosino and Carmen Avagliano.
The matrix common to both versions is given by lines, sometimes curved and sometimes straight, which recall the primordial aspect of an engraving or a child's play in the sand, as well as furrows left by ploughs. These signs interact harmoniously with the traditional techniques of Vietri sul Mare, following the direction of the brushstrokes.
Ma.Vi. Ceramica is preparing to amaze the public at Cersaie 2023 in Bologna with these three fascinating collections, each with its own unique style and inspiration. Thanks to the collaboration with talented designers and the constant search for innovation, the company continues to represent a point of reference in the world of ceramics and interior design. All that remains is to wait impatiently for the official presentation of these extraordinary creations during Cersaie.
