Fioranese is proud to present this new collection, created in collaboration with Davide Tonelli. The refined black and white contrasting graphic impact is distinguished by a slightly worn effect to emphasise the antiqued look; Riggiole is perfect for unique interior design projects with character and an unusual and contemporary mood, that still has a traditional feel.
Riggiole is a Neapolitan term for a ceramic tile, often of the majolica and hand-decorated type, typical of the Sorrento and Amalfi areas, used for both floor and wall coverings. The collection offers 3 sizes: the most popular size is the 90x90 cm followed by the more traditional 30x30 and 20x20, which all share the same distinctive hand-made decorations, evoking the mastery of the ancient ceramists and linking past and present.
The small sizes are available in the version with mixed graphics (30 graphics for the 20x20 tile and 17 for the 30x30 version) and in the colour variants with a background in Bianco or Nero. The version of the 20x20 in Bianco is also available in a selection of 5 single motifs, allowing surfaces to be created with a single repeated pattern, with the right balance between graphics and light and dark, enhancing the spaces to the full.
Each piece is unique and original, but the real distinguishing feature of the series is the macro version of the decorated floor tile measuring 90x90 cm: a large size that responds to the ever-increasing demand for bigger tiles and distinguishes surfaces thanks to its strong aesthetic impact and deliberately imperfect stroke that evokes the traditional Italian artistic ceramics of the past. An even more striking graphic effect can be seen in the chiaroscuro effects, combining black and white decorations, which are all inevitably emphasised and become authentic furnishing elements that fill the spaces, giving them a highly distinctive style.
The 90x90 cm tile is available in a Mix version with 17 deliberately off-centre macro graphics, a selection of 6 single-motif tiles with realigned graphics to compose patterns measuring 180x180 cm, and a neutral background introduced to allow for blanket poses or to be mixed within the Mix: a richly varied range allowing the design of unusual patchwork surfaces or orderly poses with repeated patterns. An even more striking graphic effect can be seen in the chiaroscuro effects, combining black and white decorations, which are all inevitably emphasised and become authentic furnishing elements that fill the spaces, giving them a very bold and distinctive style.
Riggiole truly allows great creative freedom for astonishingly detailed designs with harmonious combinations.
With its geometric graphics and black and white, the collection manages to evoke the passing of time in an abstract way, where the past is mixed with the present to hand down the art of decoration and the perfection of aesthetic balances with unwavering fidelity.
Ideal for projects by architects and interior designers in which the key elements are graphic patterns that can be used in unpredictable combinations both on the floor and on the wall. These unique decorations enrich the space with a creative and artistic touch, which never overpowers it but instead adds unusual chiaroscuro effects. Riggiole can be used to create true islands of style and design, like ‘rugs' that embellish spaces giving them an extremely refined, evocative and singular elegance.
The possibilities are as varied as the possible graphic combinations. Black and white blend perfectly together thanks to simple yet striking graphics and the light-worn effect, giving a contemporary twist. Stripes, carpets, and patchwork: there are so many original ways of using them to create stunning, harmonious spaces, perfect for every type of room in the home, from the bathroom to the kitchen to the living room and even the bedrooms. Whether used to decorate a limited space or to create continuity between rooms, the overall effect created by Riggiole is extremely balanced and suitable for day-to-day living.
Riggiole reinterprets art as a tool for use in contemporary interior design.
