Domus launches Geometrica
A pastel coloured porcelain tile collection
Launching at Domus in February, the Geometrica tile collection is a colourful glazed porcelain range with a matte concrete-effect finish. Inspired by artistic and architectural movements of the 20th century, the tiles show various motifs and design inspirations, from the Bauhaus to Pierre Chareau; from the Beat generation to a cyber-style. In an ‘alphabet of basic shapes’, Geometrica comprises five solid colours along with graphic patterns in a predominantly pastel coloured palette, with the addition of black.
Cement grey is the master colour of the collection while other colours include pink, blue, white and black. The patterns enable multiple layout options, allowing true personalisation with strong visual impact. All tiles are the same square shape and size: 15x15cm. The contemporary patterns include a grid, a circle, a T-shape, a triangle plus dots, lines, tubes and ‘birds’. Geometrica is an adaptable collection, a compendium of basic shapes that lend themselves to various formal, stylistic interpretations.
No matter how the tiles are arranged, the final design will always be interesting and unique, creating combinations that can be new every time. A number of combinations can be created by using the different elements through varied positioning on the floors and walls. Graphic flooring can be matched with a block colour wall and vice-versa. A gradation of colours can be created that starts out as a block colour on the floor and blends into graphic patterns on the wall. Or a floor can be designed where patterns are organised into geometric forms that gradually disperse randomly. Patterns can also be used to create other decorative elements within a room, such as headboards or splashbacks.
