Seletti 4 Ceramica Bardelli is the collaboration born frommeeting between the figurative design of Seletti and the know-how of the ceramic product of Ceramica Bardelli: the result is the capsule collection Tiles (R) evolution which consists of surfaces for floors and walls with proposals with a strong aesthetic impact designed for the home, contract and hotel industry.

This unprecedented collaboration with an artistic vocation, which it represents a revolution in the world of decorative surfaces, sees protagonists two Italian excellences: the technological innovation and formal and aesthetic research of the Ceramica Bardelli Group and the disruptive approach to interior design by Seletti.

"The meeting with Stefano Seletti represents the realization of a dream, or the realization of a 2D capsule collection with typically 3D aesthetics and design to speak to the world of architecture with an original language, says Gianmaria Bardelli. The common goal? To overturn the logic of decoration and modern composition and go beyond the schemes! And this is how together we open the doors to the (R) revolution in design in the world of ceramics! "

"In Seletti one thing that is certainly not lacking is the enthusiasm in experimenting; in fact, when GianMaria Bardelli asked me to imagine a project together, I immediately said yes", He says Stefano Seletti, artistic director of the company. "I discovered that the world of coating, due to the possibility it offers, has something magical, potentials that are partly close to those of art".

The collection, made with materials of the highest level, consists of five lines - Distortion, Diamond, Black & White, Elements 1 - Clouds e Elements 2 - Water - which give rise to pattern with a contemporary and unconventional soul with which to create immersive and surprising environments.


Distortion is a porcelain stoneware tile - with a super-matt finish thanks to the no-reflex glazes - which in the motifs and geometries reinterprets Seletti's iconic black and white pattern drawing inspiration from the imaginary of Maurits Cornelis Escher and from the paradoxical perspectives, the hypnotic patterns, the perceptive short circuits characteristic of his works.

Distortion is ideal for floor applications where the optical effect of "distortion" is expressed to the maximum: through the combination of 14 × 14 cm square modules and 14 × 24 cm rhomboidal modules - mounted on a fiberglass mesh - the image of the classic lady is thus transformed allowing the creation of a infinite variety of compositions and unexpected optical effects.


Diamond is a three-dimensional tile in monoporous ceramic available with glossy finish - in the colors white, black, orange, mustard and red - and in glass with mirror finish version Mirror. Size 10 × 40 cm with the line Diamond it's possible imagine modular coatings for spaces with a contemporary soul but also for more classic settings thanks to the iconic diamond coating that evokes a retro aesthetic and vintage atmospheres.


Black & White it's a mosaic - in mono pressure cooking with glossy and matte finish - in which the consolidated expertise of Ceramica Bardelli is expressed in imagining solutions that allow to overcome the traditional boundaries of decoration, combined with Seletti's visionary approach

The line, which stands out for a game of black and white with infinite combinations of creativity, is available in a kit consisting of 12 sheets (each of dimensions 30 × 30 cm) which allows to give rise to a wall of 140 × 240 cm. The resulting compositions are a unique texture that allows intervene on clear shapes but also on rounded surfaces going to cover them like a fabric.


Elements is a series that sees the protagonist nature identity and its elements, thewater and clouds: thanks to large size 60 × 120 cm of the tiles (combinable with A + B patterns and realized thanks to high added value "third fire" digital printing technologies) it is possible to create immersive settings bringing the magic of the outside world into the interior. Walking on a blue sky dotted with soft clouds or feeling enveloped in crystal clear waters becomes possible: the perception is overturned radically transforming the interior spaces.
